|Body Contouring includes procedures such as liposuction, which can be used to alter the body contour. It could include belt lipectomy which is an operation in which we go all the way around the body at the waist level, pulling the legs and buttocks up and doing a tummy tuck on the front side of the body. It could include changing the size and shape of the breast. The procedure may take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours depending on the areas involved and the technique used. In many cases, this can be done under sedation.
