Your surgical body procedures from Camberwell Plastic Surgery

Every patient will have a notion of what they want to achieve with body contouring procedures.

The correct procedure not only depends on your desired outcome but other factors that you may not be aware of.

Some procedures are suited to certain body conditions and may cause more issues if not used in the correct circumstances. For example, performing liposuction for abdominal contouring, where there is already lose tissue and an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) would be more appropriate and give a much better overall result.

Your procedure may be a combination of several techniques, best suited to achieve your ideal result.


Liposuction is one of the most internationally requested cosmetic procedures and the popularity of liposuction (lipoplasty) is unmistakable. Liposuction removes unwanted fat from specific areas of the body, which are prone to storing pockets of fat.

At Camberwell Plastic Surgery we commonly use liposuction to improve the contours of your natural shape including areas such as the neck, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees and calves.

Liposuction is ideal for clients who are close to their ideal body weight and have managed to sustain their current body weight for the last six months.

Body Lift

Body tissues that have been excessively stretched will lose their elastic properties and will be unable to tighten and shrink back to their original size after weight loss has been achieved. Although the fat is lost, excess skin often remains, which can be very demoralising.

A body lift (or belt lipectomy) addresses circumferential tissue at the tummy and back, removing the excess tissue and improving the contour.

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) and Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)

Skin commonly loses elasticity around the arms through natural ageing or rapid weight loss. Arm lift surgery tightens and tones the upper arms, restoring a more youthful form.

A thighplasty, or thigh lift is a surgical procedure for patients who are looking to have firmer and more defined upper legs. This procedure removes excess skin to restore a pleasing and youthful body contour.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

This is a body contouring operation that improves the abdominal contour. Lower excessive abdominal tissue (or pannus) is removed and the tissue above the belly button (umblilicus) is also tightened. The flanks (or love handles) are also removed in this procedure.

Often during pregnancy, the central abdominal muscles can separate and the tough fibrous tissue between them stay stretched. This muscle separation (or divarication) can affect the muscle function, putting a strain on the core and contributing to back pain. This muscle can be placated back to their original position during an abdominoplasty.
