Body Contouring

UF Health plastic and cosmetic surgeons use innovative techniques that help reshape your body and recharge your soul.

As much as good dieting and exercise can help shed excess skin and fat, in many cases these measures cannot fully address the problem. That’s where body contouring procedures that we offer come in to help you accomplish your goals of a more proportioned body.


Have a specific area that doesn’t seem to improve with diet and exercise? Liposuction is a procedure that can help give a more proportioned look and improve contour.

Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery)

Many normal life events like pregnancy and aging can cause stomach muscles to become weakened. An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, repairs these weakened muscles and removes excess skin and fat in the abdominal region.

Brachioplasty (upper arm reduction)

Have months of exercise failed in fully toning your upper arm region? A brachioplasty helps reduce excess skin and fat between the underarm and elbow and provides smoother contours and overall shape.


Panniculectomy is the surgical removal of skin and fat from the lower abdomen.

Thigh Lift (buttock lift)

After pregnancy or a weight loss program, you may have excess skin and fat in the thigh region, which is considered the hardest area to improve through good dieting and exercise. A thigh lift helps tighten skin by reshaping and tightening the underlying tissue.

Surgery after Massive Weight Loss

After losing 75 pounds or more, many people are left with unsightly excess skin in different areas of the body. UF cosmetic surgeons employ innovative techniques to help provide improved contour and shape by removing excess skin.
