As much as it is important to maintain a healthy body weight, it is equally important to have a shapely body that upholds your beauty. However, when people lose a lot of weight, the change might appear dramatic, but as a result of considerable weight loss either through lifestyle changes or weight loss surgery, the skin and tissues are often unable to maintain their elasticity and fit into the new shape that the body acquires. In such situations, going through body contouring procedures can help fine-tune your body shape.

What is body contouring?

Surgical procedures that improve the appearance of the skin and maintains the tone and appearance of tissues after major weight loss are known as body contouring, also known as body sculpting. An experienced female plastic surgeon Singapore can help you in creating a shapely body after you acquire a lean body by shedding considerable weight. By removing excess skin and residual fat that results from sagging tissues and muscles, the plastic surgeon helps to improve the shape of the supporting tissues by tightening it. It gives a shapely appearance of the right proportion and smoother contours.

Types of body contouring procedures

The dual goals of body contouring consist of removing excess fat and toning the tissues to give it a tight and taut shape that contributes to defining the shape of the body. Several procedures may be required to achieve the goals. It can comprise of liposuction for excess at removal, abdominoplasty or tummy tuck, panniculectomy or removal of excess skin from the lower abdominal area, and excisional body lift such as Brachioplasty or arm lift, lower body lift, buttock augmentation, and inner thigh lift. Breast augmentation surgery helps to create shapely breasts of the desired size by removing excess fat and sagging skin, especially after pregnancy or breastfeeding.


Liposuction is a very common plastic surgery procedure across the world, and there has been a tremendous increase in the number of people undergoing the procedure over the last three decades. Liposuction is advisable for those who maintain steady body weight and have excess fat that is not possible to get rid of by any other means like exercise and diet. The procedure can be performed as outpatient surgery despite carrying it out under general anesthesia, but a night’s stay in the hospital may often be recommended.

Laser liposuction, power-assisted liposuction, tumescent liposuction, and Ultrasonic assisted liposuction are the different types of procedures that surgeons practice.

Recovering from body contouring

After the surgery, fluid and blood may collect at the site of surgery, and you may have to use surgical drains to remove it. The doctor will guide you in using the drains.   You may have to wear some compression garment for 6-8 weeks, and as the initial discomfort goes away after 4 weeks, it may take several months for a full recovery.

Difficulties in healing is one of the risks of the surgery, and there may be persistent contour deformities.
