The body shape is often a source of insecurity for many people. There are many reasons why an individual may decide to change the contours of his or her body. Some want to create a shape they never had, such as with liposuction. Some want to sculpt their body to regain a shape they had in their youth or before becoming pregnant. Many find that despite diet and exercise, they still have “problem areas” on their bodies. Such areas might include the hips and thighs on women, or love handles on men. Genetics predisposes us to a certain shape, but plastic surgery can improve on what nature preordains.
Dramatic results are usually achieved quickly and reliably through cosmetic surgery of the body. Upper arms that have excess skin can be trimmed with an Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) procedure. Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) can flatten the stomach after childbirth or weight loss, and cosmetic surgery can repair and improve the female genitalia. After cosmetic body procedures, most patients not only look better but feel more confident.
