Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

Which procedures will I need?

Dr. Ching has a specialized interest and extensive experience in body contouring surgery and offers the latest surgical advances. Each patient has his or her own unique needs and goals, but most body contouring cases include liposuction in combination with one or more of the following procedures:

  • Arm lift surgery removes excess fat using liposuction and reduces lax “bat wings” through incisions that are concealed along the underside of the arms.
  • Thigh lift surgery tightens the inner thighs, outer thighs, or both areas by removing excess skin and fat.
  • Body lift surgery, also called a circumferential body lift, provides a firmer, tighter torso all the way around from front to back.
  • Tummy tuck surgery removes excess fat and skin and tightens loose abdominal muscles.
  • Breast procedures, such as breast reduction, breast lift, and breast augmentation, enhance the shape of the breasts by tightening loose skin, removing excess fat, or restoring lost volume, as needed.

How is the surgery performed?

Dr. Ching will work together with you to develop a surgical plan that addresses all of the areas that you’d like to improve. He will make sure you have maintained a stable weight for at least 3 to 6 months, are healthy enough for surgery, and have realistic expectations for your results. Although all surgical procedures leave scars, Dr. Ching’s weight loss patients typically consider this a worthwhile tradeoff for the improvements they gain in the way they look and feel. An enhanced shape is usually achieved over time with a series of procedures that are performed in stages over several months to optimize your safety and ensure proper healing.
