What Is Body Contouring?
Body contouring is any plastic surgery procedure that aims to sculpt an area or multiple areas of your physique. While body contouring can be done on virtually any area of the body, some of the most commonly targeted areas include the abdomen, back, buttocks, and legs. These are notably the “problem areas” or areas most resistant to exercise and diet. Body contouring removes unwanted fat, but also tightens skin, retextures the surface, and reshapes the body into ideal contours.
How Much Does Body Contouring Cost?
The cost of body contouring varies greatly, depending on your procedure, what area is being targeted on your body, and the scope of your individual treatment. At your consultation, your physician will determine your individual treatment plan and determine the exact cost for your procedure. We will go over your payment options, which includes financing through CareCredit®. We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards and ask that full payment be made prior to your services.
What are Body Contouring Procedures?
At Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery, we offer the following body sculpting procedures for men and women:
Liposuction is the most commonly performed body contouring procedure. In most cases, the procedure is fast, painless, and requires minimal downtime, making it a favorite among men and women alike. This procedure works best to remove small pockets of excess fat.
Thermal Lipolysis of abdomen/flanks
This innovative procedure uses specialized laser energy to remove fat deposits.
This procedure removes excess skin, tissue, and fat from the upper and lower abdomen for a firm, lean tummy.
This procedure is commonly performed on patients who have undergone major weight loss and/or have panniculitis. This removes the overhang of tissue on the genitals and thighs from the lower belly area.

This is an arm lift that targets the excess skin and fat in the upper arm, which is often a problem area for women of a certain age.
Benefits of Body Contouring
Body contouring procedures can have internal and external benefits. While it’s easy to predict the external benefits (smooth, tight, toned appearance to the body, enhanced proportions, etc.), it’s also important to consider the internal benefits. For people who have undergone a physical transformation through weight loss or a diet and exercise regime, body contouring procedures can be the last step to feeling like their best self. For women who have undergone pregnancy, body contouring can be just what they need to feel like themselves again.
