Body contouring procedures can transform virtually any area of the body into a more flattering shape. Whether a patient would like to reduce fat in a particular area, remove excess skin, augment the breasts or buttocks, or reveal an overall toned, slender silhouette, Dr. Fadhul can recommend the procedure that meets your needs.


LipoSculpture will literally sculpt the body into more aesthetically pleasing contours by removing stubborn fat with liposuction and adding fat to other areas using lipo-filling. This procedure provides minimal scarring and requires only local anesthesia and IV sedation. Most patients are comfortable returning to work after one week and can resume exercise and strenuous activity after one month. Final results may not be apparent for a few weeks until swelling subsides.

LipoSculpture can improve the following areas:

  • Jawline
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Knees
  • Pubic area
  • Chest

Tummy Tuck

A traditional tummy tuck, also called “abdominoplasty,” will remove sagging skin from the upper and lower abdomen and tighten the underlying muscles to produce a flat, firm contour. A mini tummy tuck will address the lower abdomen only, and an extended tummy tuck improves the abdomen as well as the back. General anesthesia is used for this procedure, and recovery is about two weeks. Results are permanent unless the patient becomes pregnant or gains a significant amount of weight.

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck:

  • Removes excess skin from the abdomen
  • Removes excess fat (when paired with liposuction)
  • Repairs weak or stretched abdominal muscles
  • Extended tummy tuck improves the back along with the abdomen

Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian Butt Lift augments and improves the shape of the buttocks using the patient’s own fat. Fat is removed via liposuction from a particular area, such as the thighs or abdomen, and is prepared for injection into the buttocks. This procedure is considered safer than butt augmentation with implants since there are no foreign devices for the body to reject.

Benefits of Brazilian Butt Lift:

  • Improves the shape of the buttocks
  • Increases the size of the buttocks
  • Creates more slender body contours with fat removal
  • Final results are permanent

Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer

Breast augmentation with fat transfer uses the patient’s own fat to augment the breasts. It is an excellent alternative to breast implants if the patient wishes to increase only one or two cup sizes. Since the patient’s own fat is used, there are lower risks compared to breast augmentation with implants. Donor sites for the fat removal include the abdomen, back, thighs, and hips.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer:

  • The breasts will increase one to two cup sizes
  • The patient’s own fat is used
  • Creates more slender body contours with fat removal
  • Involves lower risks than augmentation with breast implants
  • Breasts are easily contoured during surgery

Arm Lift

Many patients who have experienced significant weight fluctuations have excess skin on the arms that can be cumbersome and unsightly. The arm lift removes this excess skin using an incision beneath the arm from the armpit to the elbow. A mini arm lift can address the upper portion of the upper arm to provide a lesser degree of correction. Dr. Fadhul can achieve optimal results when this procedure is combined with LipoSculpture or other contouring techniques.

Benefits of Arm Lift:

  • Removes excess skin from the arms
  • Provides a toned, natural-looking silhouette
  • Enhances mobility

Thigh Lift

The thigh lift will remove excess skin from the inner and/or outer thighs. It is often performed on those who have lost a significant amount of weight whose skin did not “bounce back” after they met their weight-loss goal. The thigh lift is often performed along with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, under general anesthesia. Results are permanent unless the patient’s weight fluctuates significantly again.

Benefits of the Thigh Lift:

  • Removes excess skin from the inner and/or outer thighs
  • Enhances mobility

What to Expect With Body Contouring

Ideal candidates for body contouring procedures know that the main goal of surgery is to sculpt the body into a more comfortable, aesthetically pleasing shape. While weight loss may occur, these procedures are not to be considered weight-loss procedures and should not replace a healthy and active lifestyle.

Most body contouring procedures are performed with general anesthesia, and the duration of surgery will depend on the procedure chosen and the amount of correction needed. As with any surgical procedure, scars will result, but they will be strategically placed and fade significantly with time.


Recovery from most of these procedures is about two weeks. Dr. Fadhul will prescribe pain medication to help keep you comfortable after surgery, and compression garments will also help to significantly reduce swelling and pain, which may last for a few weeks. Patients should avoid exercise for about one month.
