Body Contouring

Body Contouring



Living in a warm climate, there are so many situations where our bodies are on display. Why not drop the voluminous clothes and join in? Life is too short to sit on the sidelines because you are too embarrassed about something that can be corrected. Whether it is loose skin from weight loss or pregnancy, or unsightly bulges, talk to Dr Cope about your options. Discover that you can say yes to that date or beach holiday!


Abdominoplasty (Tummy tuck)

Abdominoplasty is a commonly performed body-contouring procedure to improve the shape and tone of your abdomen.  This operation is often referred to as a ‘tummy tuck’.  The operation is suitable for people with loose abdominal skin following pregnancy or significant weight loss, or if you have fatty bulges in the lower tummy that you just can’t get rid of with exercise. An abdominoplasty removes any excess skin and fat as well as improving the abdominal contour by tightening the muscle layer. Liposuction is often performed at the same time to optimise the result. The surgery results in a more flattering contour, making it easier to wear close-fitting clothes and swimming costumes, and allowing you to be more active and participate in everyday life. The procedures will improve your self-confidence and often the motivation and ability to exercise.

Liposuction (Liposculpture)

Liposuction is a commonly performed body-contouring procedure to improve the shape of your body.  This operation is often referred to as ‘liposculpture’.  The operation is suitable for people with localised fatty bulges, especially those that can not be removed despite diet and regular exercise. A better result is obtained in patients with good skin tone, with little or no stretch marks, sagginess or cellulite.

Liposuction is not a weight loss operation, and patients with significant amounts of loose skin are best treated with body-contouring procedures that remove loose skin eg abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck), thigh lift, buttock lift or arm lift. Liposuction is commonly performed as part of these procedures.

The surgery results in an improved contour with a decrease in fatty bulges. Large amounts of liposuction can reduce your waist measurement and clothing size, making it easier to find clothing that is comfortable and flattering.

If you have some loose skin on your buttocks then the fat can be injected back into your buttocks, giving a firmer, higher and rounder buttock (Brazilian Butt Lift).

Breast, tummy tuck, liposuction and Brazilian Butt Lift (Mummy makeover)

Breast surgery is commonly performed at the same time as an abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck) or liposuction, to improve the shape and appearance of your breasts, or to restore volume lost with pregnancy and breast-feeding. If you have some loose skin on your buttocks then the fat can be injected back into your buttocks, giving a firmer, higher and rounder buttock (Brazilian Butt Lift) as part of the makeover.

After weight loss

After weight loss there can still be a significant amount of excess skin in the arms, abdomen, thighs or buttocks. This excess skin can cause uncomfortable chafing, making it difficult to fit clothes, and serving as a reminder of the past. Loose skin can be removed with a number of procedures that leave scars hidden mostly in natural creases, and include upper arm lift, breast lift, abdominoplasty, medial thigh lift, buttock lift and lower body lift.

The surgery results in a more flattering contour, making it easier to wear close-fitting clothes and swimming costumes, and allowing you to be more active and participate in everyday life. The procedures will improve your self-confidence and often the motivation and ability to exercise.

Labioplasty

Labioplasty reduces the size of the labia minora, the folds of skin or inner lips at the entrance of the vagina. About one-third of patients having labioplasty have the operation for purely cosmetic reasons, but in patients with symptoms of irritation with tight fitting clothing or sports, or other medical problems, labioplasty will improve your symptoms. Labioplasty will increase your self-confidence and allow you to wear normal clothing and to participate in activities such as swimming without embarrassment.
