Female Body Sculpture
Female Body Sculpture
One of the liposuction treatments that has increased in popularity over the past year is female body sculpture, a liposuction procedure where certain parts of the body can be “sculpted”. An athletic look is now quite desirable, which explains the increase in female patients who are looking to get this body shape procedure.
Patients who are considering female body sculpture, but would like to acquire more information, can find the information they require on the Dr Lanzer website. Below, you will find an overview with important facts, which you can read through at your leisure.
What Is Female Body Sculpture?
Female body sculpture is a collective term for all cosmetic procedures that could reshape a certain area of the body; this can include the arms, abdomen, butt, calves, and other parts of the body women may want to change the appearance of.
Body sculpting is often executed through liposuction. During such a procedure, the surgeon will remove any unwanted fat and tighten some of the underlying muscles to give the patient a toned physique. However, other procedures aside from liposuction can be used as well during female body sculpture, so much depends on the aesthetic goals of the patient.
Fat cells and persistent fat deposits are usually removed from common areas where there is a certain amount of fat accumulation. Certain areas are more prone to this than others and are therefore often referred to as problem areas, this includes the outer thighs, love handles, inner thighs, and more.
What Areas of the Body Are Commonly Treated with Female Body Contouring?
To understand the type of treatments that fall under the umbrella of female body contouring, we can take a closer look at some common treatments that are considered female as body contouring and are commonly executed at the Dr Lanzer Clinic.
The Arm Lift or Brachioplasty
After a significant amount of weight loss, it is not uncommon for female patients to experience excess skin in the upper arm region. To give the patient a more toned physique, a Brachioplasty or arm lift can be executed, a treatment that is considered a female body contouring treatment.
During a Brachioplasty, the cosmetic surgery will remove excess skin from the upper arm, as well as tighten the underlying muscles to give the patient a youthful contour. Patients who have some excess fat in the upper arm region may need liposuction during this treatment; this to remove excess fat that may affect the contouring of the arms at the treatment area. If liposuction is required, Dr Lanzer will mention this during your initial consultation.
Even though bicep implants are more common amongst male patients, they are also an option for female patients who wish to obtain more toned arms. Usually, these patients have undergone a rigorous training routine for some time before considering surgery but have not achieved the desired toned look they want. Bicep implants give the patient more toned arms, but they can also create a better proportion for the upper body.

The Body Lift
Patients with extensive amounts of hanging skill in different parts of the body could choose a body lift, a procedure that can target numerous treatment areas at once. It is a procedure that is mainly recommended to patients with a lack of skin elasticity all over their body.
Body lift procedures are commonly executed in patients who have experienced a significant amount of weight loss. Patients losing more than a hundred pounds could experience excess skin in more than one location; this is where the body lift could provide a solution. Naturally, not all patients will experience excess skin in the same degree. Thus, it is best to finish your weight loss journey and adapt a good skincare routine before considering surgery.
A body lift is considered an extensive surgical procedure and will therefore need a considerable recovery time. Treatment areas usually include areas where fat and excess skin accumulate more easily; this includes the arms, breasts, hips, buttocks, thighs and the abdomen.
Butt Implants & Butt Lift
Women who lack volume in the butt region could choose butt implants to adjust the size, shape and appearance of their butt. Alternatively, if the patient does not want to increase the size of their butt but wants to have a firmer and more toned butt, they could choose a butt lift.
During a butt lift procedure, excess skin is removed and remaining skin is tightened by the cosmetic surgery. To make the butt firmer, the cosmetic surgery uses the existing tissue in the butt region. However, butt implants can be used during this procedure as well.
Female patients whose calves are out of proportion with the rest of their body may choose a treatment such as calf implants. Even though men choose this procedure as well, there is a difference in regard to the aesthetic goal the female and male patient wants to reach. For male patients, the emphasis lies on bulking the appearance of the calf muscle, while female patients usually obtain calf implants to make their legs more proportionate.
Regular lipo procedures are considered as female body contouring procedures. By using lipo, the cosmetic surgery can sculpt certain areas of the body where persistent fats are present. In most cases, patients have tried to eliminate those fats through diet or exercise but have not obtained the wanted results.
The Thigh Lift
A large amount of weight loss, as well as the natural ageing process, could cause excess skin or sagging skin in the thigh region. The thigh lift is a procedure that enables the cosmetic surgery to make the upper legs firmer, more specifically by toning and tightening excess skin.
The thigh lift can be executed in different ways and the procedure used by the cosmetic surgery somewhat depends on the aesthetic goals of the patient. Therefore, always inform about possible procedures and what could be the best option for your aesthetic goals.
The Tummy Tuck
Even though there are many other procedures that fall under the umbrella of female body contouring, there is one more procedure we must mentioned here, since this procedure is quite common in Australia – the tummy tuck. The tummy tuck, also known under the name abdominoplasty, is a body sculpting procedure aimed at the removal of excess skin and fat from the abdominal area.
How Long Do I Need To Recover From Body Contouring?
The recovery time is subject to the treatment you had. If you had general anaesthesia, it is important to have someone drive you home. It is also important not to make any important decisions or sign legal documents for at least 48 hours after having liposuction surgery.
If you have tumescent liposuction, you should be able to resume your normal activities relatively quickly. However, patients should consider some downtime and aftercare. Most patients will have to wear a compression garment for any specific areas where pockets of fat were removed. This promotes the healing process and can reduce some of the side effects commonly experienced after fat removal, including swelling and bruising.
Patients who had a breast reduction with liposuction or a breast augmentation with a breast lift will have to wear a special surgical bra post-procedure. This will protect the treatment area and help it conform to its new shape.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Body Fat Removal?
Patients who are struggling with stubborn fats in spite of a healthy diet and exercise tend to be good candidates for the procedure. These stubborn fats are subsequently removed by cannula and a gentle suction. Please note that liposuction is not suitable for cellulite.
Is Body Contouring the Best Treatment for Me?
To determine if you are eligible for a body contouring treatment, you must be evaluated by an experienced cosmetic surgery first. Most patients obtaining a body contouring treatment have tried to correct the problem through diet and exercise first but have failed to achieve the desired results. If you have tried to solve the problem through diet and exercise, but have been unsuccessful, please contact the Dr Lanzer Clinic for an appointment with experienced surgeon Dr Daniel Lanzer and find out if a body contouring treatment could be the solution to your problem.
Since there are various cosmetic surgery procedures in terms of dealing with stubborn fat, it is a good idea to speak to your cosmetic surgeon about liposuction techniques. Since liposuction can be an invasive procedure, it is important to be fully aware of everything involved in the procedure.
