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:
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.
Body lifts (Belt Lipectomy), involves lifting multiple areas of the body. Large weight loss leads to folds of loose/inelastic skin that is resistant to reduction even with diet or exercise. This skin excess thus must be removed surgically. Our very skilled surgeon, Dr. Anshu Gupta uses the most advanced techniques in body lifts to improve body appearance including recontouring of arms, thighs, buttocks, tummy tuck, back rolls and any other areas requiring attention. It removes skin and fat and the remaining skin is tightened.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Weight Loss Surgery
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.
