Before technology evolved to where it is today, if you were unhappy with an area of your body, diet and exercise were the only ways to affect any changes. Thanks to advances in plastic surgery, you have other options. Body contouring surgery is a safe and effective way to improve not only your appearance, but also your self-image and overall confidence. In fact, you may be surprised about how a small change on the outside can make a significant difference on the inside.
If you’re considering a body sculpting procedure, it’s crucial that you select a qualified doctor for your surgery. BOD Cosmetic Surgery & Spa is one of Miami’s top plastic surgery practices. The BOD doctors are experienced, compassionate and committed to helping you achieve your ideal cosmetic outcome.
The quest for the perfect body is exhausting and may feel impossible at times. Factors such as aging, pregnancy and genetics add to the challenge to tone up.
The term body sculpting describes any procedure that shapes and contours an area of your physique. Body sculpting procedures could incorporate fat removal, redistribution of fat, muscle repair or skin tightening. The technique varies, depending on the specific procedure our surgeons are performing and the treatment goals of the case.
Body sculpting procedures may be performed individually or combined, depending on your aesthetic goals. Options include the following:
During a liposuction procedure, excess fat is removed from the body using a suction device. When performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, liposuction is an extremely effective way to improve the curves of the body and produce beautifully sculpted results. It may be used on large areas of the body (e.g., the abdomen, thighs) or smaller areas (e.g., underneath the chin, neck).

One of the most difficult areas to tone is the abdomen. When diet and exercise fail to treat a protruding stomach, tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty) can compensate. During tummy tuck, excess fat and skin is removed, separated or lax abdominal muscles are repaired and the remaining skin is tightened for a flatter, firmer abdominal profile.

New mothers are often the most self-conscious about their appearance. The body (most notably, the abdomen and breasts) undergoes significant changes from carrying a baby to term, delivering and nursing it. Many mothers struggle with loose skin that accumulates on the lower abdomen, stretched abdominal muscles, and breasts that are no longer as full or perky as they were before pregnancy. Mommy makeover combines breast augmentation/lift, abdominoplasty and sometimes liposuction to restore a woman’s pre-baby body (or even improve upon it!).

Buttock augmentation procedures have gained popularity over the past decade as more people want curvaceous buttocks. Brazilian butt lift is a procedure in which donor fat is taken from one area of the body (e.g., the abdomen, lower back), purified and then injected into the buttocks to add volume and shape. Brazilian butt lift is preferential to traditional buttock augmentation (with an implant), primarily because of the added benefit of liposuction in the donor area.
