What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring surgery targets areas of your physique that have an aged or untoned appearance. You work hard to stay in shape, but you have little control over the aging process or where your body loses fat. The challenge is multiplied when you are trying to lose stubborn subcutaneous fat that is part of your skin. Men and women often spend years trying to reduce this type of fat, but your body is designed to hold onto it for survival purposes.
How Much Does Body Contouring Cost?
At OptimalSelf MD, we understand that you want to feel good about yourself, yet cost may be a primary consideration. We recommend that you schedule a consultation as a first step. As part of the consultation, we explain the body contouring cost, and payment can be made by cash, check, and credit card. We also work with CareCredit® and Alphaeon® to offer our patients financing options.
Who is a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?
If you feel embarrassed by any area of your body due to small bulges of fat, our body sculpting procedures are worth considering. Take a look at our body contouring before and after photos to see how the procedure tones areas to reveal natural muscle contours and an attractive shape to the abdomen, thighs, and arms.
What Types of Body Contouring Should I Consider?
- Tummy Tuck and Mini Tummy Tuck if you struggle with small areas of fat and loose skin in your abdominal area
- Liposuction if you have small areas of fat on your body that you cannot eliminate with diet and exercise
- Mommy Makeover if pregnancy has taken a toll on your breasts, abdomen, buttocks, and other areas of your body
- Body Lift if your recent massive weight loss has left behind skin folds and stubborn fat
- Arm Lift if you are embarrassed by flabby areas on the backside of your upper arms
- Thigh Lift if you notice crinkled skin, fat bulges, and other issues with your upper thighs

“Patients often ask for a ‘mommy makeover’ without necessarily knowing what that means. Actually, there is no single definition — everyone uses the phrase a little differently in the plastic surgery world. The common denominator is the combination of both a breast and an abdomen procedure, either together or as staged procedures.
Although a seemingly homogeneous term, my ‘mommy makeover’ is a customized, carefully-formulated plan for one individual’s improvement in the areas of the body that have changed since giving birth.”
