It is little wonder most of us desire a lean, contoured body. A slim physique is visually appealing, and a sign of health and youth. If you have sagging skin or excess fat, or areas that simply appear disproportionate regardless of exercise and a healthy diet, it may be time to consider plastic surgery. Dr. David Liland in Dallas, TX, offers a wide range of body contouring procedures to enhance the arms, midsection, buttocks, and thighs. Dr. Liland boasts over 25 years of experience and can provide completely customized treatment for the most natural-looking results.

Body Contouring Procedures
You will first meet with Dr. Liland to discuss your candidacy for surgery and your aesthetic expectations. Once he determines body contouring is right for you, you can discuss which procedure or combination of procedures will best meet your goals.
Liposuction is a popular procedure designed to remove pockets of fat that fail to respond to lifestyle changes. Through very small incisions in the treatment site, Dr. Liland will insert a thin cannula to break up and suction out fatty tissue. Although liposuction can treat nearly every area of the body, it is most often used on the abdomen, thighs, back, buttocks, and upper arms.
This procedure is a trusted way to achieve a sleeker midsection. During a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, Dr. Liland will tighten weakened abdominal muscles and excise excess skin. For patients with an accumulation of excess fat around the torso, a tummy tuck can be combined with liposuction for stunning results.
Some patients, even at a healthy weight, are concerned with the appearance of their upper legs. A thigh lift addresses weakened leg muscles and slack skin from beneath the crease of the buttocks down towards the knee. In addition to lifting and removing excess skin, thigh lift surgery often incorporates liposuction as well.
Patients who desire a backside that is more lifted and shapely may opt for a butt lift, either a Brazilian butt lift, butt implants, or a combination of the two. The Brazilian butt lift relies on liposuction to remove fat from one area of the body and then transfers it to your buttocks for a fuller, rounder rear. Implants may also be inserted for increased volume. Implant placement, performed in combination with fat transfer, is preferable in some cases to create a more natural aesthetic.
The aging process, genetics, and weight fluctuations can all contribute to upper arms that are soft and not well defined. An arm lift seeks to correct this concern and create a leaner appearance. During the surgery, Dr. Liland will carefully trim excess skin and in some cases, tighten the muscles on the underside of the arm.
As we age, we can lose youthful volume, definition, and elasticity in key parts of our body and face. Meanwhile, we often accumulate fat in other areas, such as the hips and thighs. A fat graft is a fantastic body contouring procedure because it can address both of these problems at once. Patients can slim problem areas, while at the same time adding youthful volume to others, such as along the cheeks or around the buttocks.
