Eliminate Excess Fat with Body Contouring Treatment By Mesna Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center on August 21, 2017

Body contouring surgical marksIf asked to choose just one flaw to eliminate, an overwhelming number of people would opt to get rid of excess fat. Patients are typically advised to exercise or change their diet to lose weight. Unfortunately, some fat cells are resistant to even the most stringent workout and nutrition plan. That is where plastic surgery can help.

Body contouring treatments refine the figure by eliminating excess fat for good. At his plastic surgery practice, Dr. Gregory T. Mesna offers a number of treatment options for patients looking to slim and tone the figure. Body contouring for excess fat allows our Minneapolis, MN patients to finally achieve their aesthetic goals.


Body contouring treatment may seem like the perfect solution for patients looking to shed weight and trim their figure. However, it is important to understand the limitations of body contouring treatment. Body contouring is not a weight loss solution for patients who wish to lose a significant amount of weight. Body contouring is also not appropriate if a patient is still in the process of losing weight.

Ideally, body contouring treatment is for patients who have a stable weight that is within 15 to 20 pounds of their healthy BMI, and for those who have localized areas of fat that they’d like to treat. Healthy individuals who meet these requirements may be ideal candidates for body contouring treatment.

Treatment Options

While a number of our patients may be looking to get rid of excess fat, the location of that fat is likely to be different for each patient. The beauty of body contouring treatment is that it can be completely personalized to the specific needs and desires of each patient. Dr. Mesna offers a comprehensive range of body contouring services that can treat all different areas of the body. Below are some of the most common body contouring treatments for eliminating excess fat:

  • Liposuction: Liposuction treatment targets and destroys fat deposits and suctions them from the body to slim down problems areas. Liposuction is one of the most popular treatments for excess fat because it is extremely versatile. Liposuction can safely be performed on virtually any area of the body, including the arms, thighs, stomach, and buttocks.
  • Abdominoplasty: An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a great treatment option for patients with excess skin around the midsection. This procedure also repairs abdominal muscles and removes stretched skin to provide patients with a flatter, firmer stomach.
  • Thigh lift: The thighs are a common problem area when it comes to excess skin. If squats and lunges haven’t resulted in thin, toned legs, a thigh lift may be the best option. This procedure targets excess skin around the inner thighs to enhance the figure.
  • Arm lift: Unfortunately, excess skin on the arms does not always respond to diet and exercise. An arm lift can remove excess skin from the upper arms to create a tighter and more toned appearance.

Body contouring treatments benefit patients by eliminating excess fat and tightening loose, stretched skin to give patients a slimmer and more toned figure. Dr. Mesna is happy to go over each of these treatments in further detail with his patients and customize a body contouring treatment plan that will meet their unique needs.
