Body Contouring

Body Contouring Surgery at Mohave CosmeticBody Contouring Surgery

Over the years, the human body goes through many changes as it copes with age, hormonal changes, weight loss and weight gain, stress, and exposure to environmental toxins, and unfortunately, some of those changes manifest themselves in ways that are both subtle yet undermine our appearance and our self-confidence. In some cases, we are able to reduce the impact of these changes and improve our physique by living a healthy lifestyle: eating well, exercising regularly, getting sufficient sleep, reducing stress (if possible). Yet even the healthiest of lifestyles cannot always give us the toned, shapely figure we want. Some areas of the body—the arms, the back, the legs, the buttocks, and the waist, for example—are easily impacted by aging, fluctuations in weight, and hormonal changes, but are stubbornly resistant to correction by lifestyle choices alone.

Advanced, powerful body contouring surgery now enables us to precisely target key areas of the body impacted by aging, gravity, and weight gain and loss, eliminating excess fatty deposits and bulges that resist diet and exercise, tightening lax skin that has begun to droop and sag with age, and restoring shapely, perfect curves. Body contouring surgery is especially effective for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, either through dieting or bariatric surgery, but who still feel uncomfortable showing off their new, healthy body due to large amounts of excess skin. Whether you have just one small “problem area” or are seeking a more toned, sculpted body as a whole, body contouring surgery offers a powerful, highly effective, and naturally-beautiful solution!

Dr. Bryson Richards, conveniently located in Las Vegas, Nevada, offers a full range of body contouring surgeries designed to target your specific problem areas and meet your unique goals. At your initial consultation, Dr. Richards will conduct a thorough medical evaluation and listen closely to your concerns and goals, and will take the time to help you understand the range of body contouring options available to you, as well as the benefits and risks of each one. He will then work closely with you to develop a surgical plan that is 100% customized to achieve your unique aesthetic goals.

Dr. Richards is pleased to offer the following body contouring surgeries:

Arm lift (brachioplasty): For toned, sculpted arms. An arm lift involves the precise removal of both skin and fat from the upper arms to resolve so-called “bat wings” or flabby upper arm jiggle.

Upper Back Lift/Back Bra Line Lift: Perfect for eliminating unsightly bulges on either side of the bra strap across the back. During this procedure, Dr. Richards removes excess fatty deposits and sagging skin from the upper back extending to the underarm area.

Thigh Lift (Thighplasty): Ideal for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, a thighplasty targets loose hanging skin and stubborn fatty pockets. Some patients may require a simultaneous liposuction to remove large fat deposits. Thigh lift options include:

Inner Thigh Lift: tightens and enhances the contours of the inner thighs utilizing an incision at the junction of the pubic area and upper thigh

Bilateral Thigh Lift: tightens the skin on both sides of the leg through incisions at the top of the leg

Medial Thigh Lift: focuses on the skin and fat only at the upper junction of the inner thighs, utilizing incisions close to the groin and buttocks crease

In addition to these body contouring options, Dr. Richards may recommend additional ancillary procedures such as liposuction, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), butt lift, and breast surgeries, depending on your unique aesthetic goals and medical history.
