If you find yourself eating a well-balanced diet and exercising consistently, but still find that you have excess skin and fat, body contouring may be right for you.
Sometimes heredity, changes in your body such as weight gain or loss, pregnancy, and even aging can change your body's proportions and curves. This may affect both your body image and self-confidence. Body contouring surgery can help many people reshape body features that cannot be improved by other methods. It can dramatically improve the shape of your body, giving it a more balanced look while enhancing your appearance and boosting your self-confidence.
Body contouring creates a tighter abdomen, thinner thighs and arms that look great sleeveless. Body contouring procedures are appropriate for both men and women.

If diet and exercise efforts have not given your thighs the tone you desire, you may benefit from a thigh lift. A thigh lift reshapes your thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat. A thigh lift can give you tighter skin and better-proportioned contours of your thighs and lower body.
