Is Liposuction My Only Option for Body Contouring?

Liposuction can be an excellent option for patients who have difficulties firming up a trouble spot, such as inner thighs or arms or the lower stomach after having a baby. The removal of excess fatty deposits can create a more sculpted, contoured look that emphasizes your curves or muscles.

Liposuction is an excellent option for some, but it’s not the only way to achieve a sleek look.

A lift can also tighten the appearance of an area. Gravity and age can be a dangerous combination, resulting in saggy, loose-looking skinthat can make parts of the body appear sloppy, out of shape or just plain older than they really need to look.

Lifts are most commonly performed on the arms and breasts. Some patients even opt for a full-body lift.


Liposuction removes excess fat cells, while lifts physically “lift” the skin when elasticity has been loss due to gravity. Then, there are tucks. As you may well assume, a tuck removes extra skin and fat before  a surgeon tightens the area – essentially, “tucking” it together. Tucks are most commonly performed on the abdomen or lower area of the stomach, thus, the name “tummy tuck.”
