Many plastic surgeries are done to eliminate congenital deformations or deformations acquired in the course of time, which are located in various parts of the body, and also bring those parts in sizes and proportions considered to be nice. These include procedures intended for correcting the body contours, such as fat removal (liposuction), abdominoplasty, mini abdominoplasty, arm lift, pubic lift, and buttock reshaping.
When carrying out all these processes within the scope of Body Contouring Surgery, it is important to determine both a physically and psychologically suitable candidate, and use surgical techniques that keep the possibility of complications at the minimum level and do not pose any risk to the patient’s general health status.
