Services offered:

Body sculpting
Body sculpting, also known as body contouring, is a term used to describe a range of aesthetic procedures which is designed to improve the appearance of the body. At Sakra World Hospital, we use both surgical and non-surgical methods. Body sculpting is used to address common areas including the face and neck, breasts, upper arms, abdomen, thighs, waistline, back, and calves.

Tummy tuck procedures (abdominoplasty)

At Sakra World Hospital, we employ the following options for tummy tuck procedures.

Endoscopic abdominoplasty: It is a minimally-invasive procedure used to deal with loosened stomach muscles.

Mini abdominoplasty: It is a less extensive procedure used to deal with up to moderate or limited sagging skin, loose muscles, and excess fat.

Full abdominoplasty: This procedure is used to address significant sagging skin, loose stomach muscles, and fat.

Extended abdominoplasty: This procedure is used to address a more massive amount of excess fat and skin. It helps in improving the appearance of the upper thighs and abdomen.

Circumferential abdominoplasty: It is a procedure used to address aesthetic issues of the lower thighs and buttocks.

Lower body lifts: Lower body lift is an extension of the circumferential abdominoplasty. It involves removing excess skin and fat, re-contouring the lower body, and tightening the buttocks, stomach, and thighs.

Thigh lift
Patients who have had massive weight loss can attain shapely and fit legs through thigh lifts. This procedure involves removing excess skin from the thighs and tightening the remaining skin to give a youthful appearance. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia. A small incision will be made depending on the area or areas to be treated.

Inner thigh lift incision: There are three ways to perform this procedure. One is performed by making an incision in the groin, extending downward, and wrapping around the back of the thigh. Another one is performed by making an incision along the inseam and removing the excess skin.

Outer thigh lift incision: For outer thigh lift, a small incision is made from the groin around the hip and across the back. This procedure is performed to improve the contours of the outer thigh.

Liposuction, also called fat removal, is a versatile technique used by itself or as a part of a tummy tuck procedure to remove excess fat and skin. At Sakra World Hospital, we use the latest technology for this procedure such as a power-assisted liposuction machine.

Post-pregnancy aesthetic procedures
Pregnancy can be tough on a woman’s body. From a sudden increase in weight to ever-expanding skin, women’s bodies undergo several battles that they are afraid to show. Post-pregnancy aesthetic procedures can help in reshaping the breasts, stomach, and complexion. It focuses on four areas, including breasts, love handles, abdomen, vagina, and labia.

Frequently Asked Questions

Body contouring is a surgical procedure used to improve the body shape towards normalcy or to further enhance the appearance. It can involve a combination of various techniques of liposuction, fat grafting and plastic procedures.

Most of the body contouring procedures are daycare procedures. Usually done under general anaesthesia. Our anaesthesia and pain medicine specialists will provide a safe and pain-free surgery and post-surgery recovery. The downtime after such procedures is very short and most of our patients are able to go back to normal activities in 2-3 days' time.

After a thorough assessment of the region, the procedure may involve the excision of excess skin and fat (Plasty – Abdominoplasty, Thigh plasty, Arm plasty, etc). It is also usually combined with liposuction. Sometimes the fat is also re-injected as a graft to particular areas to enhance the appearance of the region). Some of the common procedures are Lipo-abdominoplasty, Brachioplasty, Thighplasty, Mommy makeover, Buttock augmentation, etc.

Abdominoplasty also called a tummy tuck is a treatment done to remove excess fat and skin and restore weakened muscles to create a smoother and flat abdomen. Abdominoplasty is of two types, Classical abdominoplasty and mini-abdominoplasty.

Abdominoplasty is performed under general anaesthesia. During the surgery, the plastic surgeon makes a horizontal elliptical incision in the area between the pubic hairline and the belly button. The plastic surgeon lifts the abdominal skin and repairs the underlying weakened muscles. The extra skin is removed and the remaining skin is sutured together. A new opening for the belly button is made. Sometimes it is also combined with liposuction to either create six-packs or hourglass-shaped hips.

Thigh lift surgery is performed to reduce the excess skin and fat from the thigh to reshape, tone, and firm the leg. There are two types of thigh lift surgery:
Medial thigh lift: It is performed to reduce excess skin and fat on the upper portion of the inner thigh to give it a more toned appearance.
Standard thigh lift: It is performed to remove the excess loose skin and fat to reshape, tone, and firm the upper leg. It is usually performed after weight loss.

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that uses suction methods to remove excess fat from different areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck. It is usually done when your body doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. It is usually used to also treat lipodystrophy of a particular region.

There are several types of liposuction methods such as Manual Tumescent liposuction, Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL), Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL) and Power-assisted liposuction (PAL). Sakra World Hospital has the most advanced Power-assisted liposuction machine (MICRO AIRE), which helps the plastic surgeon to produce the best possible results quickly and hence reducing the operative time to a minimum.

After the surgery, you will be having some pain, swelling and bruising which can be controlled by pain medicines. You will be able to get back to normal activities in 2-3 days. But you need to wait for a few weeks before resuming strenuous activities like gym and weight lifting. You will also be advised to wear compression garments to reduce the swelling faster.
