Body Contouring Procedures

Your surgeon will review your cosmetic goals and recommend an approach designed just for you. Some women and men experience optimal results from a lower body lift, while others may require more extensive lifting in the chest or arm area. It is recommended that patients wait until their bodies have reached a stable weight after their weight loss surgery in Ottawa before body contouring.

To perform a body contouring procedure, our surgeons remove the excess skin and tissue to achieve a toned, attractive appearance. They offer many different contouring procedures, including:

  • Lower Body Lift: This body lift involves combining a buttock and abdominal lift in one procedure.
  • Buttock Lift: A buttock lift involves excising lax skin from the outer thighs and buttocks, resulting in a lifted backside.
  • Arm Lift: An arm lift involves excising hanging skin and tightening sagging in the upper arms, resulting in toned, taut upper arms.
  • Breast Lift: Breast lift surgery rejuvenates the breasts by lifting them to a youthful position while improving their shape and firmness.

Depending on the extent of sagging and stretched skin and the procedures you choose, you may need more than one surgery to achieve your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Silverman or Dr. Boyd will help you understand which procedures will provide you with the body contours you desire. He or she will work with you to develop a safe, effective plan. As this surgery is highly individualized, our surgeons design a unique approach for every patient.
