What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a set of cosmetic procedures designed to reshape and improve the body’s appearance. These procedures can enhance your silhouette, refine your curves, and minimize unwanted fat nearly anywhere on your body.

With aesthetic and weight loss expertise, Dr. Balder specializes in a range of surgical and nonsurgical body contouring treatments at Mississippi Institute of Weight Loss Surgery. 

After a comprehensive consultation, he can develop a personalized body contouring plan that aligns with your unique goals and concerns. This collaborative process ensures a tailored approach to enhance your body's natural contours and achieve a more sculpted and balanced appearance.

What can body contouring do?

Body contouring can reshape and redefine the body's contours by addressing areas of excess fat and loose skin. Benefits of surgical and nonsurgical body contouring treatments include:

  • More proportional figure
  • Reduced fat
  • Tighter skin
  • Better clothing fit
  • Post-weight loss support
  • Minimized appearance of cellulite
  • Enhanced muscle definition

Dr. Balder’s customized approach can combine multiple treatments to give you the silhouette you desire.

Are there different types of body contouring procedures?

Mississippi Institute of Weight Loss Surgery offers multiple body contouring procedures, including:


Emsculpt Neo®

Emsculpt Neo emits high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology to simultaneously burn fat and build muscle. The treatment forces your muscles to contract up to 20,000 times in a single 30-minute session, offering the benefits of multiple workouts in minimal time.


Tummy tuck with panniculectomy

This combination surgical procedure removes excess abdominal fat while tightening the underlying muscles and loose skin.


BeautiFill® laser lipo and fat transfer

BeautiFill uses laser light to collect unwanted tissue from areas like the abs, hips, legs, and chin. The laser simultaneously tightens the overlying skin, and Dr. Balder reinjects the harvested fat into the face or body for a smoother, more youthful appearance. This effective procedure allows augmentation of various areas, like the cheeks or buttocks, and requires minimal to no recovery time.


Arm lift

This surgical procedure, also called brachioplasty, involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper arms for a slimmer, tighter appearance.
