Body Reshaping

Body reshaping, also known as ‘bodysculpting or ‘bodysculpt therapy’, involves changing muscle density, moving or removing fat, surgically altering body parts or adding implants to achieve a desired body shape.

Reshaping the body (and face) can be done in numerous ways. The most natural way is to exercise and eat well. Weight-lifting exercises can increase muscle mass, adding definition to the body and limbs, and adding support to sagging skin. Eating well to lose fat can get rid of unsightly body bulges and double chins.

Surgical therapies for facial reshaping include:

  • Ear pinning, ear reshaping (otoplasty)
  • Cosmetic gum reshaping
  • Cosmetic dental contouring
  • Nose reshaping (rhinoplasty)
  • Chin reshaping surgery
  • Facelift
  • Browlift

Surgical therapies for body reshaping include:

  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tuck
  • Thigh and arm lifts
  • Buttock implant

Minimally invasive therapies for face and body reshaping include:

  • dermal fillers
  • laser liposuction
  • liposuction
  • lipodissolve

Non invasive therapies for body reshaping include:

  • acoustic wave therapy
  • fat freezing
  • microcurrent therapy
  • ultrasound therapy
