Body contouring, also known as body sculpting or liposuction, helps people lose weight by removing pockets of fat that they can't get rid of using diet and exercise. It's most commonly used for the following areas: abdomen (love handles), back/bra area, thighs/legs (outer thigh), chin, arms (underarm).

Body contouring procedures are performed in a outpatient setting to make you comfortable during your surgery. First, small incisions will be made to access the body tissue to remove unwanted fat cells. The goal is not only to remove fat but also to tighten the surrounding skin.

Non-surgical techniques won't offer as dramatic results as surgery, but it poses lesser recovery. It can be seen to have significant improvement in individuals with small targeted areas that would benefit from fat reduction.
