Body Contouring in Burlington, Ontario
Body Contouring is a method of reshaping the body by utilizing both surgical and non-surgical approaches to achieve more aesthetically pleasing proportions that appear natural. If you have issues such as loose skin, excess fat, or other imperfections that can’t be improved through exercise, diet or over-the-counter products; scheduling an initial consultation at our office will allow us to evaluate your physique and desired outcome. We’ll create a customized treatment plan for you based on your requirements and objectives after reviewing your medical history and conducting a physical examination. To ensure the maximization of results and safety while achieving natural-looking outcomes, it’s best to choose an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon when considering any treatment or procedure. Dr. Shih explains any potential risks associated with procedures in regards to specific conditions like yours during consultations before proceeding.

Abdominoplasty, commonly called the “tummy tuck,” is a surgical technique that eliminates redundant skin and obstinate fat to create a toned and firm abdominal region. This surgery also alters the muscles of the abdomen while drawing in the remaining skin for better shaping. The procedure proves helpful for people whose stomachs have transformed due to variations in weight or pregnancy; these occurrences typically stretch out the skin, reduce its suppleness, pull apart muscle fibres and loosen up walls within this area of the body. Regular exercise coupled with dietary adjustments may not suffice when attempting to address stretched-out musculature and damaged skin tissues caused by such incidents.
Abdominoplasty offers the advantage of tailoring to individual patients’ specific requirements. In some cases, patients wish to address not only their abdominal region but also other areas. To accommodate such needs, we perform an extended version that targets surplus skin and fat in both the stomach area and on the sides above hip level, commonly referred to as “flanks” or “love handles”.
In order to improve body shape and remove excess skin and fat, a procedure called body lift is undertaken especially after weight loss. By doing so, the irregularities in skin texture that cause cellulite can be eliminated. As every person’s anatomy varies, this surgical approach is tailored according to individual needs. A range of different body lifts are available which necessitates consultation with an authorized plastic surgeon who can determine the most suitable one for you.
Post-Bariatric/Massive Weight Loss Body Contouring
Bariatric or massive weight loss surgeries can assist you in achieving your desired body weight, however, they may create fresh areas of concern that cannot be tackled by adopting a healthy lifestyle. If you are experiencing trouble with stubborn fat deposits or surplus skin, we can devise an individualized treatment strategy to cater to your post-Bariatric/massive weight loss physical aspirations and help boost your confidence in yourself.
Pregnancy is known to transform the body, sometimes causing it to change so drastically that you barely recognize yourself. Despite taking good care of your body, certain things may not revert back without assistance. The breasts could lose their shape and firmness while sagging skin and stretch marks might appear out of nowhere. However, with a mommy makeover, women can hold onto motherhood’s joys while getting rid of its aftermaths on their bodies through personalized procedures such as breast augmentation or lift surgery, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and liposuction that eradicate extra fat deposits alongside lifting up flabby areas for more toned features. To determine which treatments align with your individual needs best, book a consultation with Dr. Shih today!
Back Rolls Reduction
There are times when fat accumulates in parts of the body that cannot be specifically targeted through exercise or conventional weight loss methods, resulting in stubborn deposits. Back rolls can cause a dip in self-esteem for individuals of any gender; however, we offer an approach to minimize their visibility and attain a more defined and firm back appearance. Liposuction is generally employed to eradicate these obstinate adipose cells during back roll reduction procedures with permanent results.
In the event that you have sagging skin around your thighs, opting for a thigh lift can help to restructure and firm up the inner part of your thighs. This procedure entails elevating and contracting the inner region of your thigh while also getting rid of surplus skin. Additionally, if there is excess fat in this area, it may be worthwhile to couple this technique with inner thigh liposuction so as to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Brachioplasty: The Arm Lift
The medical procedure of brachioplasty involves an arm lift that aims to transform the shape and structure of the lower section of arms by eliminating surplus fat and skin. By getting rid of unwanted excess, this surgical treatment can aid in enhancing definition and firmness, thereby instilling confidence in one’s arms’ aesthetics.
Similar to the rest of the body, hands can also display indications of aging. If you observe that your hands appear older than before, hand rejuvenation could be an ideal solution to regain confidence. Our diverse range of hand rejuvenation therapies aims at revitalizing youthfulness in the hands and elevating overall appearance assurance. These remedies intend to replenish the volume on top of the palms by concealing any bony bulges or visible veins along with tendons on them.
