Body Contouring

Body Contouring Overview

The expert plastic surgery team at Hattiesburg Clinic offers a full range of body contouring services to help patients achieve results and gain confidence in their own body. Body contouring, commonly referred to as body sculpting, is a cosmetic procedure that alters the shape of different areas of the body. Whether due to aging, genetics, environmental factors or excess skin caused from significant weight loss, contouring procedures can help enhance the shape and proportion of your body.

Body contouring procedures include both surgical and non-surgical techniques to construct a more sculpted and toned figure. These techniques involve the noninvasive removal of fat cells and tightening of the skin tissue. Body contouring is not an alternative to weight loss; however, it is designed to help contour the body and address specific areas for patients who are at a healthy weight create a more proportionate appearance.
