Body contouring is growing in popularity, and there are many different ways to help slim, sculpt and tone the body. Many people adopt a healthy lifestyle that consists of clean eating and high level activity to help maintain a shapely figure and stay close to their ideal weight.

But, as many of you will probably be aware, this doesn’t always guarantee the slim, streamlined form that one desires. Most people will find that somewhere on their body, they have a pinchable pocket of fat – which can be very frustrating.

Both surgical and non-surgical treatments can be used to assist your lifestyle and achieve a body shape that leaves you feeling happier and more confident. Reshape & Restore are leading consultant plastic surgeons who practice privately in the west of the UK – specifically, Gloucester, Bristol, Cheltenham and Worester. They dedicate part of their practice to surgical body contouring procedures, which are frequently requested by many of their patients in Gloucester.

So, what procedures do they perform, and what body contouring procedures are popular at our cosmetic surgery clinic in Gloucester?

A body contouring procedure can be requested for a number of reasons, often to improve the body’s physical appearance. For instance: a person may have lost a significant amount of weight and wishes to remove excess / loose skin, a woman’s figure may not have returned to its original state following pregnancy and childbirth, ageing may have changed the way fat is stored in the body or contributed to loose skin, or nature may not have provided the desired form.

To help improve the appearance of the body, Reshape & Restore offer the following procedures to all their patients in Gloucester, Bristol, Worcester, Cheltenham and the surrounding areas:

Abdominoplasty – more commonly known as a tummy tuck, this procedure removes excess skin from around the abdomen to achieve a flatter, slimmer stomach. Liposuction can assist this procedure if small amounts of fat will also need to be removed.

Mini abdominoplasty – a tummy tuck aimed at removing a lesser volume of excess skin, this approach usually targets the lower abdomen and is popular with women whose stomach is out of shape following childbirth (particularly if a caesarian section has been performed and they have developed an ‘apron flap’).

Liposuction / fat transfer – this procedure can be used on a wide range of areas on the face and body and is designed to remove small deposits of fat. It is not a weight loss solution but can help to streamline the figure and create smoother curves.

Arm lift / reduction – aimed at getting rid of ‘bingo wings’ an arm lift (brachioplasty) slims the appearance of the upper arms through the removal of excess, wobbly skin and some stubborn fat.

Thigh lift /  – producing shapely, more toned looking legs, the thigh lift (thighplasty) also removes excess skin and fat from the inner or outer thighs and the buttocks.

Reshape & Restore are understanding of all reasons for recontouring the body, and welcome all patients in Gloucester (and the surrounding areas) to attend a private consultation where they can discuss their concerns with a trained and experienced body contouring professional.

Mr Khan and Mr Chapman are honest and open, and will let you know the look they are able to achieve, based on your concerns.
