Body Contouring

Body Contouring refers to a broad field of plastic surgery procedures that address areas of excess fat and/or skin. There are numerous reasons why both women and men may decide to undergo these procedures. Some patients are left with excess skin and stretch marks after substantial weight loss or pregnancy. Many others are frustrated when even after an extended period of dieting, exercise and toning they are unable to remove stubborn areas of excess fat from around their mid-region. No matter what your needs are, at the Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Institute we are meticulous in our every approach to provide you with an individualized cosmetic solution that will leave you looking and feeling your very best.

Smooth, shape and enhance: define the better body within you.

What Is Body Contouring?

Surgical Body Contouring can be performed in normal-weight patients, patients who have lost significant weight through diet and exercise, and patients who have lost weight after Weight Loss Surgery (also known as Bariatric Surgery). Body Contouringremoves excess sagging fat and skin, while improving the shape of the underlying support tissue, to smooth and shape your waist, hips, thighs, butt and/or arms. The result is a more normal appearance with enhanced body contours. Individual and groups of Body Contouring procedures include:

  1. Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty
  2. Butt Lift
  3. Brazilian Butt Lift
  4. Thigh Lift
  5. Lower Body Lift
  6. Arm Lift
  7. Liposuction
  8. Mommy Makeover

The advanced surgical techniques employed by Dr. Jugenburg at The Toronto Cosmetic Surgery institute offer each patient safer procedures, quicker recovery, and optimal results that will reshape your body to the form you desire.Here you can learn more about the individualized Body Contouring options that are available to you.

Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty

A Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that addresses stretch marks and removes excess fat and skin from the abdominal area in order to create an enhanced profile that is instantly smoother and firmer. The muscle layer is tightened, reshaping the abdominal wall, and dramatically improving its appearance and strength. The procedure can help you flatten your abdomen and sculpt your midsection, or restore your abdomen after the impact of weight gain and/or pregnancy.

Liposuction

Diet and exercise cannot always provide the solution; for many people a cosmetic procedure is required to address problem areas. Body Sculpting Liposuction is a surgical remodeling procedure designed to sculpt the body by eliminating stubborn fat deposits, smoothen cellulite, while simultaneously re-contouring and firming your body. At the Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Institute, Body Sculpting Liposuction uses an advanced technology to offer you a safe, gentle and precise Body Contouring solution for transformational results.

Thigh Lift

A Thigh lift is a one of two procedures designed to reshape the inner or outer thighs by tightening the skin and smoothing the contours of the thigh. An Inner (or Medial) Thigh Lift removes excess skin and fat on the inner aspect of the thigh, thereby reducing the circumference of the thigh. An Outer (or Lateral) Thigh Lift is often performed at the same time as a Butt Lift to elevate loose, sagging outer thigh skin. Women or men who have lost significant weight are ideal candidates for these procedures, which are normally done in combination with surgery on other areas of the body.

Arm Lift

An Arm Lift is a surgical procedure designed to reshape sagging upper arm skin. Loose hanging skin, large arms, and feeling self-conscious when wearing short sleeves are common reasons why most people undergo an Arm Lift. Women or men who have lost significant weight are ideal candidates for this safe and effective treatment. An Arm Lift procedure can be combined with surgery on other areas of the body.

Brazilian Butt Lift

If you desire for a slimmer waist and a bigger, more curvaceous butt, then a Brazilian Butt Lift is just the procedure for you. By combining two surgical procedures in one, fat is removed from areas of your body where you do not want it and transferred to an area where you do want it: your butt. This provides an entirely natural alternative to butt implants for women, and once healed, leads to the beautiful, worry-free contours of an enhanced butt.

Butt Implants

For women who are too thin to have sufficient fat to be used in a Brazilian Butt Lift, butt implants offer the only safe alternative to achieving a larger, more curvaceous butt. Butt implants are available in various shapes and sixes to suit the individual body proportions of each woman. During the consultation process, Dr. Jugenburg will choose the implant that best fits your body and personal goals.

Lower Body Lift

After dramatic weight loss, the skin and tissues often lack the elasticity to conform to the reduced body size. A Lower Body Lift provides patients with the only means to remove and tighten the resulting unsightly sagging skin. It is a combination of the Tummy Tuck, Butt Lift and Lateral (or Outer) Thigh Lift procedures. It is also often the last step in the process to achieve enhanced body contours and a rejuvenated appearance.

Mommy Makeover

The joy of motherhood for any woman can sometimes be overshadowed by frustration with the state in which her body is left after a pregnancy. Loose skin, stretch marks, sagging breasts, and those persistent pockets of fat that were not present before pregnancy (and breastfeeding) can drive a woman to distraction. These effects can also impact negatively on a woman's self-esteem and self-confidence. Mommy Makeover is a group of surgical procedures that address these negative changes your body has undergone, and to restore and enhance your body to a youthful, pre-pregnancy form.

The Royal Treatment

All our Body Contouring patients that undergo a procedure under general anesthesia are offered the convenience of staying in the Fairmont Royal York Hotel the first night after surgery at an additional charge (BBL patients receive this at no additional fee). If you have chosen to do so, once you are ready to be discharged from the Recovery Room, we will transport you to one of the luxurious hotel rooms, where you will be able to recover while enjoying the comfort of this spectacular hotel. We will also give you a small care package of essentials to use during your overnight stay. The following morning you will return to the clinic to be re-assessed and to have you dressings and bandages changed if necessary. Once you have been fully checked out, you will be able to leave and go home in your pre-arranged transport (you will not be able to drive yourself).
