A word from the Doctor
“Even when you have done everything right by dieting and exercising, you can still have stubborn fatty deposits or loose skin that will disappear despite your best efforts.
The body has areas of diet-resistant fat that are always the last to go. Meanwhile, loose skin is often genetic or can be the result of past pregnancies, sunbathing, or significant weight loss.
This is where body contouring comes in. It can range from a simple removal of fat through liposuction to more complex procedures that remove and tighten excess skin.
In fact, it’s often a combination of the two that gives patients their desired outcome.”

Body Contouring Options
People undergo body contouring procedures for a wide range of reasons, though often to achieve a desire result in the shape, tone and appearance of certain areas of their body.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and our muscles weaken, which often leaves people with a loss of volume or definition in parts of their body – sometimes a good diet and exercise isn’t enough to resolve these issues. Body contouring procedures can help address these concerns, remove unwanted fat and restore the patient’s body shape in line with their expectations.
Or, it could be that a person has experienced significant weight loss which has left behind excess skin and fat. This can be removed through plastic surgery, resulting in tighter skin and a more toned physique.
Check out our range of body contouring procedures below.
Arm lift surgery targets the fat in the patient’s upper arms and removes excess fat cells to leave a slimmer overall appearance.
Brazilian Butt Lift
BBLs have grown in popularity in recent years. They’re designed to enhance volume and shape by transferring the patient’s own excess fat from one area of their body to the buttocks.
Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that removes excess skin and fat from specific areas of the body, achieving a slimmer and more toned appearance.
Massive Weight Loss
This tends to involve a series of procedures to remove the excess skin and fat that’s left behind after a period of significant weight loss.
A combination of surgeries focusing on the breasts and body to combat the changes that occur following pregnancy, leaving the patient with a much more toned, youthful appearance.
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck can be a great option to remove excess skin and fat from the stomach area, also achieving a more toned midsection.
We have offices in Rockville, MD, or McLean, VA. Most of our patients come from Maryland, northern Virginia and Washington DC.
