Body contouring procedures target to alter the shape of the body by eliminating excess fat and skin.

Surgical body contouring following major weight loss removes excess sagging skin and fat while improving the shape of the underlying support tissue. The result is a better-proportioned appearance with smoother contours.

Plastic surgery procedures that may be recommended by your surgeon include:

  • Arm lift: correct sagging of the upper arms
  • Breast lift: correct sagging, flattened breasts
  • Facelift: correct sagging of the mid-face, jowls and neck
  • Lower body lifts: correct sagging of the abdomen, buttocks, inner and outer thighs
  • Medial thigh lift: correct sagging of the inner thigh
  • Tummy tuck: correct apron of excess skin hanging over the abdomen


The aims of any body contouring surgery are to improve the symptoms you have and to improve your quality of life. The procedures available demonstrate the range of operations that may be necessary, but not all patients will require all procedures and your surgeon will discuss with you which may be most appropriate. All operations of this kind carry a high risk of complications, whether they be minor ones or major ones. For this reason we must do everything to optimise your wound healing and recovery otential preoperatively, including stopping smoking and improving your nutritional state. Sometimes this may require blood tests to be performed and nutritional supplements to be taken.You will often undergo a pre-assessment appointment to help ensure that your health is optimised prior to any surgery.
