What Type of Body Contouring Is Right for Me?

There has been a recent surge in the popularity of body contouring procedures throughout the U.S., partly fueled by social media and influencers, but also by advancements in surgical techniques. As a result, there are now various body contouring procedures available to address your concerns.

The purpose, applications, and outcomes for these procedures differ significantly, and patients must understand the different options available before committing to surgery. To help you stay informed, here’s a deeper dive into some of our patients’ favorite body contouring methods.


Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S., with over 210,000 procedures performed each year. It can quickly and permanently remove fatty tissue from trouble areas like your abdomen, chin, flanks, upper arms, buttocks, and legs, making it a highly effective procedure for those who are at or near their ideal body weight.

Liposuction is not a procedure designed to help overweight patients shed a dramatic number of pounds. For safety reasons, there is a limit to how much fat a trained surgeon will remove during this surgery. That’s why the best candidates for liposuction are healthy men and women who are already close to their target weight and who are hoping to supplement their fitness and nutrition efforts with targeted contouring.

Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck is a useful body contouring procedure for new mothers or those who have successfully lost significant amounts of weight. While your skin is an incredibly resilient organ, the strain of a pregnancy or substantial weight gain may stretch it so far that it can’t snap back to its original position. Additionally, strained or separated abdominal muscles can make it more challenging for you to maintain a good posture. A tummy tuck simultaneously resolves the issues of loose, flabby skin and weakened core muscles.

High-Definition Liposuction

High-definition liposuction elevates body contouring to new heights of precision and skill. When performing this procedure, Dr. Yash uses ultrasound energy to break up small areas of fat that cover muscle tissue, enhancing your muscle definition to give you a lean, fit, and sculpted appearance.

High-definition liposuction is ideal for patients who have diligently followed a workout routine, but have still not seen their desired results. Removing the fat will reveal the toned muscles beneath.
