Body Contouring

Rejuvenating and reshaping the body to achieve a desired silhouette, using advanced techniques for optimal results.

Body contouring surgery focuses on refining the silhouette, removing excess skin, and targeting stubborn fat, especially after monumental weight loss, ageing, or post-pregnancy changes. This unique aims to rejuvenate, often turning the pages back to a more youthful and toned physique.

Body contouring can provide a chance for many individuals to feel more comfortable with their body, and decrease areas of bothersome skin roll and folds which commonly affect hygiene and clothing choices.

For many, this procedure is the final chapter in their weight loss journey, offering closure and a renewed sense of self.

Is Body Contouring Right For Me?

Body contouring may help restore areas of your body to a firmer and more contoured appearance, especially after significant life events such as massive weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding and childbirth.

Am I the Ideal candidate?

Those who may be appropriate candidates for body contouring are individuals who’ve achieved a stable weight and bear a suitable BMI for at least six months. Moreover, those equipped with sound health both in mind and body, are most likely ready to embrace change in a sustainable life-long manner, which may better aid in producing a long-lasting post-operative result.

There are always risks and complications associated with every surgery, which will be discussed with you during your preoperative consultations.  Our approach is always designed with your anatomy and needs in mind, with the aim of addressing any sagging and loose skin areas, in order to help tighten and rejuvenate targeted areas.  We may even employ liposuction or muscle repair techniques during surgery if necessary.

After Surgery

Post body contouring, an abdominal binder needs to be worn for about 8-10 weeks. Most patients would expect to stay in hospital for 2-3 nights, followed by a few weeks of rest and healing.  Swelling can sometimes take up to 10-12 weeks to settle, and it can take a staggered approach during that period to return to heavy physical activities and exercise.

Which Body Contouring Surgery?

In the intricate tapestry of our body, our hands stand out as both functional tools and expressive instruments. Delving into the realm of hand surgery, it’s my privilege to guide you through the diverse procedures tailored to restore, enhance, and rejuvenate this vital part of our anatomy.

Upper Body Lift

The upper body lift aims to refine the contours of the breasts, chest, and mid-back, addressing areas like upper abdominal and upper back rolls with grace and precision.

Lower Body Lift (Circumferential Abdominoplasty)

Delving deeper, the lower body lift seeks to enhance the curves of the lower to central abdomen, buttocks, outer thighs, and lower back. This involves an incision that circles the body, each uniquely tailored to the patient, potentially paired with muscle repair techniques.


This procedure focuses on the lower abdomen, aiming to tighten the skin of the lower abdomen without a scar around the umbilicus as would a full Abdominoplasty procedure.  Liposuction can be combined with this procedure to achieve a better contour in targeted areas.

Full Abdominoplasty

A more comprehensive approach than the mini-Abdominoplasty , this procedure rejuvenates the front centre  to lower parts of the abdomen, even addressing the position of the navel to achieve a harmonious result.

Extended Abdominoplasty

Venturing beyond the abdomen, this procedure extends its touch to the sides of the hips, if there is skin laxity which extends to that area.

Fleur De Lis Abdominoplasty

With an inverted-T scar pattern, this approach is as unique as the flower it’s named after, targeting specific needs and outcomes.
