Understanding Body Contouring

Body contouring refers to a collection of surgical procedures that target specific areas of the body to remove excess fat, tighten sagging skin, and reshape contours. Our body contouring surgeries are designed to address these concerns, helping you regain a more youthful and toned appearance.

Body Contouring Procedures Offered

Liposuction is a popular body contouring procedure that targets stubborn pockets of fat in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, and more. Using advanced techniques, Dr. Mario Moran will skillfully remove excess fat deposits, sculpting a more refined and proportionate figure.

Liposuction Variations
Traditional Liposuction

Traditional Liposuction

  • Standard surgical procedure.
  • Removes excess fat using a cannula and manual suction.

Tumescent Assisted Liposuction

Tumescent Assisted Liposuction

  • Uses a tumescent fluid solution to facilitate fat removal.
  • Reduces the amount of bleeding and bruising during the procedure.
  • Allows for faster and less painful recovery.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction

  • Beneficial for more fibrous areas, such as the abdomen and back.
  • Can help sculpt more precise areas.

Tummy Tuck

Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is ideal for women who struggle with loose abdominal skin and weakened abdominal muscles, often as a result of pregnancy or significant weight loss. Dr. Mario Moran will remove excess skin, tighten the underlying muscles, and create a smoother, flatter abdomen.

Tummy Tuck Variations
  • Reshapes both the upper and lower abdomen.
  • Includes removal of excess skin and fat, as well as repair of separated abdominal muscles.
  • Ideal for people with significant muscle flaccidity and weakness throughout the abdominal area.
  • Also known as "circumferential abdominoplasty" or "body lift".
  • Addresses excess skin and fat throughout the abdomen, flanks, back and hips.
  • It is especially suitable for patients with massive weight loss or widespread sagging around the body.
  • It requires a circular incision around the torso, usually at the bikini line.
  • It extends beyond the limits of a full abdominoplasty, also addressing the flanks and back.
  • Ideal for people with excess skin and fat extending to the flanks and back of the torso.
  • A modern variant of abdominoplasty that focuses on vectorial tension and suspension points.
  • Allows for more precise correction of muscle flaccidity and weakness.
  • It uses strategic sutures to hold the tissues in a tension position resulting in a more sculpted and natural appearance.
  • May be an option for patients with moderate sagging and no significant excess skin.
  • It focuses primarily on the lower abdominal region below the navel.
  • Less skin and fat are removed compared to a full abdominoplasty.
  • Suitable for those with limited abdominal flaccidity and bulging.

Pregnancy and childbirth can dramatically impact a woman's body. Our mommy makeover combines various body contouring procedures, such as tummy tuck, breast lift or augmentation, and liposuction, to address multiple areas of concern and restore your pre-pregnancy figure.

Thigh Lift

Thigh Lift surgery is a procedure aimed at improving the appearance of the thighs by removing excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother and more contoured legs. It is an ideal solution for individuals who have experienced significant weight loss or have loose skin due to aging, helping them achieve a firmer and toned lower body.

During the Thigh Lift procedure, a skilled plastic surgeon carefully trims and tightens the skin along the inner or outer thighs, depending on the patient’s specific needs.

The surgery can provide a noticeable improvement in thigh appearance, enhancing confidence and allowing individuals to comfortably wear clothing styles they may have previously avoided.

Buttock Implant

Buttock Implant surgery is a cosmetic procedure that seeks to enhance the volume and shape of the buttocks by placing silicone implants in the region. This approach is ideal for those patients who desire a significant increase in the size and projection of the buttocks and who do not have enough fat in other areas of the body to undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL).

Buttock Implant

  • Specific silicone implants are placed for the buttocks to achieve an increase in volume and shape.
  • Suitable for patients with little body fat in other areas to be used in a BBL.
  • Longer lasting results and less dependence on the patient’s own fat availability.

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL):

  • Uses the patient’s own body fat to increase the volume and improve the shape of the buttocks.
  • It is performed by liposuctioning areas of excess fat, such as the abdomen or thighs, and then injecting it into the buttocks.
  • It offers a more natural look, as it uses the patient’s own fat tissue and can provide additional benefits of sculpting other areas of the body.


Brachioplasty, also known as an “arm lift,” is a cosmetic surgery procedure aimed at reshaping the upper arms. It involves the removal of excess skin and fat to create a more toned and contoured appearance.

Brachioplasty is an effective solution for individuals seeking to address sagging skin and achieve more sculpted arms, often caused by weight loss or aging. The surgery can result in improved arm aesthetics and increased confidence in wearing sleeveless clothing.
