Start 2023 With a Total Body Shape Up

5 Minute Read: 

We find ourselves in the early months of the new year. For many, this means finally remembering to write “2023” instead of “2022” when filling out the date. 

This also means that many people have likely slipped on their yearly resolutions. And one of the leading resolutions made among women and men every year is to get their bodies in shape. However, just because you haven’t achieved your goal yet doesn’t mean you can’t.

There is no better time to consider a body contouring procedure (or a combination of body sculpting techniques) to help you look leaner, fitter, and more engaged.

Dr. Chiu of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery offers top surgical and non-surgical body and breast shaping procedures to help you transform your body into an eye-catching, head-turning silhouette.

Is Plastic Surgery Right for Me?

Each person has unique struggles with their body contours. And not every concern can be addressed through natural means. Breast insecurities, for one, whether they stem from size issues (too small or too large) or sagging tissues, cannot be addressed without surgery. Loose skin is another of these concerns, and no amount of exercise or an antioxidant-rich diet will tighten sagging skin past a certain degree.

To address/correct breast and body insecurities that are otherwise out of reach, customized plastic surgery procedures can help. 

But since the right procedure for one patient may not be right for you, it is important to schedule your consultation with renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Chiu. At that consultation, you can discuss your cosmetic frustrations and goals, and Dr. Chiu will evaluate your condition to determine which procedure(s) can best help you. 

Some patients may only require one procedure from the following list, while others may benefit from a combination of different procedures. 

Looking to Shape Your Physique? One or More of These Body Contouring Surgeries May Be Right for You

Tummy Tuck

With tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty), excess pockets of fat in the midsection are removed, abdominal muscles are tightened, sagging skin is excised, and the remaining skin in the tummy is pulled taut to give you a firmer, more contoured appearance.

This surgery is especially beneficial after one or more pregnancies or significant weight loss (to counteract loose skin). 

Liposuction

Liposuction surgery is one of the most versatile cosmetic procedures since it can be used independently or as part of other procedures (such as tummy tuck surgery). Liposuction helps to remove unwanted subcutaneous fat from various areas of your body, including your midsection, arms, legs, chest, buttocks, and even neck. 

Since liposuction does not independently tighten skin, it is commonly combined with other skin-tightening surgeries.

Thigh Lift

Many women and men develop loose and sagging skin in their upper legs, which makes them feel self-conscious and keeps them from wearing the clothes they want. For thigh lift surgery, stubborn fat is removed from the upper thighs, excess and sagging skin is excised, and the remaining skin is pulled tight to create thinner, more attractive, and natural contours.

CoolSculpting®

While it may not offer the total-body overhaul of some other surgical tone-up treatments, CoolSculpting® can provide significant fat reduction results without the downtime or incisions associated with surgery. This non-surgical fat reduction procedure can help you slim and tone specific areas for an extra boost of confidence that everyone will notice.

Breast Lift 

Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) helps women with sagging breasts, whether from age or life events (such as weight loss, pregnancy, and breastfeeding). With this procedure, breast tissue is repositioned, and loose skin is removed to help your breasts sit at a higher, perkier, and more natural position. If needed, your nipple-areolar complex can be repositioned, as well. 

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery allows women to improve the size, shape, and volume of their breasts. With this procedure, breast implants (saline implants or silicone implants) or your natural fat are used to transform the appearance of the breasts so that you look the way you desire. And what’s even better is that this procedure is completely customizable for each patient. 

With natural breast augmentation surgery, fat is transferred from one area of your body to your breasts. 

Breast Reduction

Bigger isn’t necessarily better, especially if your oversized breasts are causing you physical pain or emotional discomfort. Breast reduction helps women with cumbersome breasts achieve more balanced breast-to-body proportions.

Post-Bariatric Surgery

Post-bariatric surgery is a customizable combination procedure that can include any number of the following procedures:
