Quick Bites

  • Body reshaping surgery enhances your body's shape, making it perfect.
  • Tummy tuck and liposuction are two of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures.

  • Body reshaping surgeries, however, can have severe implications for the patient.

Ageing has several undesirable effects. It can cause your breasts to sag, your neck and face to develop saggy skin and wrinkles and much more.

Body Reshaping SurgeryExercise and diet can help you to maintain your body and shape but there are several stubborn parts of the body like abdomen, lines on neck and face that do not change or go away. But, do not despair—advances in modern medicine can help you to enhance your curves by increasing your breast size or simply reshaping it. The lost body shape due to pregnancy, ageing or obesity can be regained by cosmetic surgery.

Body reshaping can enhance your looks, body's shape and give you the perfect size and shape you want.

Body Reshaping Procedures

  • Fat Removal/Liposuction (from abdomen, thigh, arms)
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Thigh and Buttock Lift
  •  Arm Lift
  • Buttock Implants
  • Calf Implants

These procedures are relatively safe and can change the way you view your body and give you that added confidence. These cosmetic surgeries are not covered by insurance. The cost of these surgeries is variable and depends on factors such as complexity of the operation, duration of hospital stay, the place of surgery and the type of anesthetic that is administered.


If you want to go for body reshaping procedures consider a surgeon based on his expertise, qualification and recommendations than just the cost. But, remember that none of these surgeries are risk-free. Complications can occur even when the surgeon is very experienced and you are operated in a hospital with world class facilities. Before operating, your doctor will inform you about the possible complications and take an informed consent for surgery.


Extreme Makeover through Body Reshaping Surgery

In this age of obesity and obsession to look young and attractive forever not only celebrities even common people are opting for multiple cosmetic surgery procedures at one go.


These are called "extreme makeovers." The name is derived from a TV show on plastic surgery. Extreme makeovers can give several benefits to the patient like the following:

  • Surgeries to be done are customised to each person’s need and health situation
  • Total surgical time is shorter
  • Fewer incisions are made
  • Overall cost of surgeries is decreased
  • You will need only a single recovery period instead of several.

In addition, a single procedure like face-lift will not give you the look you want. But, beautifying everything from eyes to lips to breasts to abdomen to ankles will give you more satisfactory results than what you were looking for.


A few examples of “extreme makeover” plastic surgery combinations are

  • Abdominoplasty with breast augmentation.
  • Breast reduction or augmentation with liposuction on the back or upper arms.
  • Face and body lift with a breast lift.
  • Abdominoplasty with a thigh lift.
  • Facelift with neck liposuction.

But, like any other surgeries, extreme makeovers are also associated with risks and complications like:

  • longer recovery time than what would be necessary for a single-issue cosmetic surgery
  • Bleeding and infection
  • delayed healing of the incisions
  • Higher expense for professional nursing assistance during recovery.

Extreme makeover plastic surgery can give you a "new look" and you will look younger, but it is not without complications. Insurance does not cover cosmetic surgery so you will have to pay for it from your pocket.
