A series of body sculpting procedures can be performed to correct some issues such as excess body fat or loose skin after dramatic weight loss, which can undermine self-confidence and cause insecurities. The following procedures fall into the body contouring category.
For patients that are having issues getting rid of unwanted body fat by diet and exercising, Liposuction can be a viable solution. Liposuction is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. The objective is to help patients achieve a firmer, toned figure for an overall improvement in their appearance. We call this kind of procedure total body contouring.
Abdominoplasty, known more commonly as a "Tummy Tuck," is a major surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen and as a result, create a slick, sculpted figure. Dr. Gibson uses what he calls the “natural hour glass technique”. He also creates a very important belly button inner vertical curve placement and a special linear youthful shaping of the umbilicus.

This procedure is performed on patients that present excess hanging tissue throughout their bodies as a result of dramatic weight loss, bariatric surgery or loss of skin elasticity due to aging. Body lifts can be a significant aid in achieving a slimmer figure, by removing excess sagging skin and revealing the contours of the body. It can be performed in various parts of the body, including the arms, buttocks, thighs, hips, breasts, and abdomen as a full circumferential belt lift.
Labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation is a plastic surgery procedure of the external female genitalia folds - the Labia Minora and/or the Labia Majora. Labiaplasty reduces the size and reshapes the inner or outer lips of the outside of the vagina. This procedure is usually performed on women who are born with irregular or asymmetrical Labia Minora or that have developed stretching as a result of childbirth or aging.
