Body Contouring Procedures

Turn Your Dream Body into a Reality

When diet and exercise fail to produce the desired body sculpting results, surgery with Dr. Anshu Gupta is a worthy alternative. A trusted plastic surgeon in Solana Beach, Dr. Gupta has years of experience sculpting beautiful bodies that look natural and proportional. His strong sense of artistry and technical expertise is apparent in an array of consistently excellent results.

Check out our available body contouring options:


Tummy Tuck

One of the most popular body sculpting procedures, tummy tuck refines the midsection several ways. First, it removes surplus fat and skin. It also tightens weakened/separated abdominal muscles. The result is a thinner and flatter abdominal profile.


Another extremely popular body sculpting procedure, liposuction eliminates targeted areas of unwanted fat. Liposuction can be performed on many areas of the body, including the buttocks, thighs, hips, abdomen, back, upper arms, knees and neck. It can refine a smaller area like the chin or reduce surplus fat in a larger area like the upper back.

What is laser liposuction?

Laser liposuction is a new approach to the destruction and removal of fatty tissue without the need for incisions. In laser liposuction, the intensely-focused energy of lasers is directed through the skin, targeting fat cells and breaking down the cell walls so the fat can be removed by the body’s natural waste system. Laser liposuction does away with the need for incisions, so healing and recovery are faster, treatment is quicker, and the risk of complications is greatly reduced.

What is the SculpSure system?

SculpSure is the first noninvasive liposuction system approved by the FDA for removal of fat in the belly and flanks. The system works by directing laser energy deep below the skin’s surface, heating fat cells and breaking them down without the need for suction and incisions. Laser energy is administered through a handheld device that features a special cooling surface to keep the upper layers of skin comfortable during treatment. The energy delivery system is designed to ensure consistent application throughout the treatment zone for better results, and multiple areas can be treated in as little as 25 minutes. Most patients see initial results in six weeks, with optimal results at about 12 weeks after treatment.

Am I a good candidate for SculpSure?

SculpSure can be an ideal solution for many women and men looking for a way to remove stubborn fat so they look and feel their best, but it’s not for everyone. The best way to determine if SculpSure could be a good choice for you is to schedule an office consultation so you can be evaluated. During your consultation, you’ll have an examination and be asked to provide a complete medical history to ensure laser liposuction is the best choice for your needs.

Arm Lift

Arm lift zeroes in on flabby upper arms. During the procedure, excess skin and fat are removed, and the remaining tissues tightened for a firmer upper arm contour. The incisions are concealed as much as possible for minimal scarring.

Thigh Lift

Thigh lift contours the upper, inner thighs. Excess skin and fat are removed and the remaining tissues are tightened for thinner thighs. The incision pattern varies, depending on the extent of correction necessary, but special care is taken to minimize visible scarring.

Gluteal Augmentation / Brazilian Butt Lift

Gluteal augmentation, either with an artificial implant or via fat transfer (the latter is known as the Brazilian butt lift procedure), is quickly gaining popularity. Both methods will improve the roundness and fullness of the backside. The added benefit of Brazilian butt lift is that it reduces excess fat in another area of the body (e.g., abdomen, thighs).

Mommy Makeover

Mommy makeover combines body and breast procedures to restore a woman’s pre-baby body. A typical mommy makeover treatment plan includes breast lift and/or augmentation coupled with abdominoplasty and possibly liposuction. Other procedures, such as facial rejuvenation and vaginoplasty are provided, should a patient desire those. Procedures may be combined into one operation or staged out separately, per Dr. Gupta’s recommendation.


Dr. Gupta’s labiaplasty procedure reshapes a woman’s labia by trimming excess skin and tissue from the inner or outer vaginal lips for an improved vaginal appearance and increased comfort. As many women feel self-conscious about the look of their large or misshapen labia, or experience discomfort during physical activities, sex or while wearing tight clothing, this procedure is ideal for increasing a woman’s self-esteem and ease of movement.

Weight Loss Surgery/Body Contouring

Post-bariatric body contouring is helpful for eliminating the loose, saggy skin that can hang around after weight loss. Surplus skin is eliminated and the remaining skin is tightened so that it hugs the new curves and contours of the body.
