Following a significant weight loss, you may have excess and sagging skin that hides the contours of your new body. Conversely, you could have unwanted areas of body fat that seem impossible to remove with a healthy lifestyle and leave you unhappy with your appearance. Beyond eliminating excess fat and skin, you may want to enhance certain bodily features that seem lacking in contours.

Luckily, body sculpting in Richmond has many surgical methods to tackle and improve these appearance concerns. Various reasons are motivators to seek out body sculpting procedures, including fat removal, excess skin removal, and contour enhancements. Whether you have lost weight resulting in sagging skin, struggle with stubborn body fat, or want more voluminous features, there are  options for you.

Body Sculpting Procedures for Fat Removal

For a slimmer, more contoured body appearance, there are several body sculpting procedures available in Richmond.


Liposuction surgery removes excess body fat through small incisions with suction techniques. The surgery targets excess fat on most body areas, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, and neck. This treatment is best for patients with a stable weight who possess excess fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. Most areas of the body can have liposuction, but it is usually performed on the abdomen, hips, love handles, thighs, neck, or chin.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) is among the most popular cosmetic procedures. It is for patients who have both excess fat and loose skin in the abdominal area. The surgery removes the excess, tightens any stretched/separated muscles, and leaves you with a more toned stomach.

Fat Transfer

Body sculpting with fat transfer removes fat from one location for insertion into another for improved contours. This procedure can enhance and slim different body areas, depending on your unique needs. Fat could be removed from the thighs, hips, and abdomen and injected into the face, hands, breasts, or butt.

Body Sculpting Options for Sagging Skin

Beyond the traditional body sculpting techniques for the abdomen, there are surgical options available in Richmond that target other body areas for full body contouring.

Lower Body Lift

A complete lower body lift removes excess fat and sagging skin on the abdomen, waist, hips, outer thighs, and butt during one surgical procedure. Also known as a belt procedure, the surgery removes the extra fat and skin on the waist.

Arm Lift

An Arm Lift is for people who have excess skin and fat on the bottom of the upper arms. It is a common problem for women as they age and for both sexes after weight loss surgery. Liposuction is used to remove the excess fat, and the loose skin is trimmed for tighter, trimmer upper arms.

Inner Thigh Lift

The procedure aims to reduce sagging of the inner thighs from excess skin following weight loss. Reshaping the inner thighs is possible through incisions extending from the groin to the knee to remove excess skin for a more toned look.

Body Lift / Rejuvenation After Weight Loss

A Body Lift after weight loss, either from dieting or weight loss surgery, creates a smoother appearance by removing remaining fat and loose skin. The surgery is done circumferentially so that the front and back of the torso are made firmer. Muscles are also tightened as needed.

Body Sculpting Procedures for Enhancements

Typically, body sculpting is known as a method for slimming certain areas. However, in Richmond, there are surgical body contouring options that aim to enhance contours by introducing more volume to features.

Calf Implants

For a more toned leg appearance, the surgical insertion of silicone-based calf implants can increase calf volume and definition. The surgery aims to permanently enhance the calves’ contours with implants to maintain a defined look.

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift uses a fat transfer to enhance butt contours while increasing volume for a rounder, fuller look. During the procedure, excess fat is removed from the abdomen, hips, and lower back with liposuction and is injected into the buttocks to create a toned, voluminous appearance.

Other Body Sculpting Procedures

We also offer other body sculpting procedures to treat a variety of concerns:

Mommy Makeover

Often, the labia become stretched due to aging or childbirth, causing discomfort. Labiaplasty reduces the size of the labia or reshapes them for both comfort and aesthetics.
