What is body contouring?
Body contouring, also termed body sculpting, is a surgical procedure that aims to eliminate fat, reshape the body and tighten the skin. Body sculpting is done through medical procedures like liposuction, tucks, or lifts. Surgery offers risks and associated recovery time, but the results are noticeable and long-lasting. The procedures are performed to:
- Get rid of extra skin
- Eliminate excess fat
- Reshape or contour the area
Please refrain from thinking that body contouring is a method to lose weight. Instead, it is a surgery to help shape your body and address specific bulky areas where it is impossible to lose weight or where you have sagging skin due to weight loss.

Types of Body Contouring Surgeries
Each surgery aims at body sculpting that includes various body parts like the stomach, back, buttocks, legs, or arms. A variety of procedures fall within the body contouring category. The main 5 surgeries are briefed below:
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
An abdominoplasty or tummy tuck procedure removes excess skin and tissue from the abdominal area and tightens the underlying muscles to achieve a flatter tummy.
The surgeon will make an incision, repair the weak muscles, stretch and remove excess skin. Sometimes navel repositioning is also required.
Arm & Thigh Lifts
An arm and thigh lift removes excess skin and fat tissue to create smoother skin and improve contours. These surgeries result in defined and toned arms and thighs as desired by the patients.
An arm lift or Brachioplasty targets the additional fat and skin on the upper arm between the armpit and elbow. This surgery requires incisions on the undersides of the arms.
A thigh lift can be performed on the inner or outer thigh. Generally, the incisions are made down the groin area or from the knee.
Afterwards, the underlying tissue is tightened, and excess skin is removed. Finally, the remaining skin is repositioned to create toned arms and thighs.
Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift involves liposuction and augmentation to increase your buttock volume and reduce fat in your abdomen, hips, lower back, and thighs. Overall, it enhances your entire lower half without an implant. In addition, surgeons use liposuction to suck out fat from other body parts, such as your hips, stomach, and thighs. This fat is then prepared for transfer and injected into the buttocks to improve size and shape.
This procedure is performed to enhance your abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. In addition, it shapes and tones sagging skin and removes unwanted fat. In some cases, if you want to remove excess fat, your surgeon may suggest liposuction in addition to a body lift.
Once sedated, the surgeon will make an incision similar to the pattern of a bikini line along the abdomen, groin, waist, thighs, and buttocks. The excess apron of skin is then removed. Next, the underlying muscles are tightened, and the remaining skin is pulled down and sutured at the incision site.
Liposuction is a trending procedure, as it dispels fat from the body parts. So this technique reduces the fat cells from your body areas that haven’t responded to diet and exercise regimen. A surgeon may mark circles and lines on the areas to be treated during surgery. Then, small incisions are made, and a cannula is inserted to suck the fat.
Your surgeon will guide you about the post-surgery care of the incisions, drains, and bandages. MPSI is a one-stop solution for body contouring in Dubai. Dr Adnan and Dr Rory are among the preferred plastic surgeons in Dubai and are passionate about delivering quality outcomes in aesthetics.
