Beyond the Belly: Body Contouring for the Back, Limbs & Buttocks


When it comes to getting a slimmer physique using liposuction, many of my Toledo, Ohio, patients focus on their abdomens. Although the midsection is a frustrating area to maintain even for people who exercise and eat well, other areas pose similar problems for men and women who want their appearance to reflect their healthy lifestyle. Contouring the back, limbs, and buttocks can be even harder using exercise alone, but toning these areas can make a major difference in a person’s silhouette.

I offer body contouring procedures that can help tone and lift these areas. Flabby upper arms, for example, are a trouble spot for people who have lost significant weight or whose skin is losing its laxity because of aging. A brachioplasty, also called an arm lift, is becoming an increasingly popular cosmetic surgery at my practice.

A back lift is often a good choice for men or women whose clothes don’t fit well because they have bulging flesh. Surgery can reduce rolls in the middle and upper back by eliminating excess skin. Liposuction can be combined with either procedure to get desirable results. Excess fat from thighs can also be successfully removed using liposuction.

Buttock lifts are also getting more popular, as shown in 2013 statistics recently released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons®.  The number of buttock augmentations with fat grafting increased by 16% from 2012 to 2013, according to the ASPS data. A buttock lift combined with augmentation can improve the shape and position of your buttocks.

If you’re considering body contouring procedures, you may want to look into some of these options. I recommend consulting with a body specialist who has experience with your treatment of choice.
