And loose, lax skin is simply another symptom of age. Body contouring surgery is your chance to take control of the landscape of your looks. Make your body yours again with surgical contouring by Dr. Robert Bonillas.

About

Read the Beauty Talk Blog to learn more about our plethora of procedures.

Transformation is an adventure. It can certainly leave its little reminders throughout our body. Massive weight loss, aging and pregnancy all have lasting physical impressions. Pink and purple stretch marks pinstriping a loose parachute canvas sack of skin hanging from your belly—this is the unsightly leftovers of dramatic transformation. The tragic irony is that your metamorphosis will only ever truly be complete when you actually do something about the hanging shroud of droopy flesh sagging from your frame like your older brother’s hand-me-downs.  

Body Contouring procedures describe a whole suite of surgeries intended to tailor your body’s skin to better suit your new form.[1] Your selected sequence of skin sculpting surgeries shall be the final phase of your rebirth! 

Before & After Photos

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) 

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

An Abdominoplasty, or Tummy Tuck, is like getting yourself fitted for a fine tailored suit. Dr. Bonillas will smooth your rumpled flesh so that you can achieve a sleek and streamlined form. In most cases, a Tummy Tuck also restores weakened or separated muscles to create a smoother, firmer abdominal profile.[2] This surgical procedure is used to contour the abdomen when diet and exercise do not produce toning results. 

Liposuction 

Liposuction

LocoLipo is a power-assisted procedure that removes localized lipids and bulges of fat from the body on gentle jets of reverse pressure. Imagine a vacuum that is specially designed to remove problem fat pockets from unwanted areas. LocoLipo is only available at Scottsdale Plastics with Dr. Bonillas!

VASER Liposculpture

VASER Liposculpture stands for “Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance.” It is an ultrasonic solution to body contouring technology. The procedure is often interchangeably referred to as “liposculpture” in acknowledgment of the chiseled precision of its results. 

VASER is body sculpting in the truest sense. Good vibrations roil fat cells lose from their fleshy tethers before they are aspirated by uncanny cannula suction from the VASER vacuum device. This allows Dr. Bonillas to practice a far finer level of liposuction precision. 

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

In an arm lift, an incision is made from your elbow to your armpit. Excess skin and fat are cut away. An Arm Lift (brachioplasty) will elevate the sagging skin at your upper arms. 

Body Lift (Torsoplasty)

Body Lift (Torsoplasty)

Keep it tight with torsoplasty. The Body Lift procedure is an extended form of the tummy tuck.[3] Dr. Bonillas shaves away fat in the hip and “muffin top” areas, sculpting a pleasing, smoother body circumference for his patients. 

Thigh Lift 

Thigh Lift

A Thigh Liftt helps correct sagging skin. Loose skin draped from your thighs can be supremely embarrassing. There can be friction and rashes as it may be difficult to thoroughly clean between the folds of skin.[4] A thigh lift is the only way to be rid of extra skin and achieve long-lasting results

Brazillian Butt Lift (BBL) 

Brazillian Butt Lift (BBL)

Brazillian Butt Lift  (BBL) will boost your buttocks without the use of implants. The procedure employs autologous fat harvested from your own body. In essence, BBL takes fat from areas where you’d rather lose it and adds it to to your buttocks. The Brazillian Butt Lift is a body contouring win-win.

Labiaplasty 

Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty has risen in popularity in recent years. Large or asymmetrical labia are incredibly common. The procedure offers the possibility of aesthetic balance and beauty in a highly sensitive area. It is a simple surgery comprised of several elegant incisions. Its alluring results may evoke a positive shift in one’s entire self-image.

FAQ

What is body contouring and how is it done?

Body contouring refers to surgical procedures that improve the appearance of skin and tissue after major weight loss. Body contouring surgeries can include abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction and excisional body lifts, like an arm lift (brachioplasty), an inner thigh lift or the Brazillian Butt Lift.

How long do tummy tucks last?

Tummy tuck results are considered long-lasting because the skin and fat cells that have been removed cannot grow back. It is crucial to be at a stable weight. By maintaining a stable weight, following a healthy diet and exercising consistently, you can ensure your aesthetic results will endure.

Can you gain belly fat after a tummy tuck?

While a small amount of weight gain and loss is normal after a tummy tuck, large shifts in weight will have a negative impact on your results. However, you should wait until after you have recovered from your tummy tuck procedure to workout at the gym.

Is body contouring safe?

Body contouring is a completely safe procedure. If you want to get rid of those stubborn areas of fat, there is no better solution than comprehensive body contouring. And, if you want to maintain your newly sculpted body, you need to stay healthy with regular exercise and proper nutrition following your body contouring surgery.
