Tummy tucks, arm lifts and skin tightening procedures are techniques that have been around since a while and keep on getting better using innovations ranging from surgical proficiency to laser rejuvenation. Body contouring however makes use of these same procedures but the technicalities and complications are different since the time of surgery is longer, the volume of skin removed is more and the areas needing to be treated are more in comparison.
Other additions may be made such as upper body lift that targets the back, neck and chest. Other lifts for the under arms, inner thighs as well as the face and neck may be required too. Because of the time and extent of surgery required, it’s not uncommon for a team of two or three surgeons to work on one patient.
