Body Sculpting

Body Sculpting in Detroit, MI

Body sculpting or body contouring may be achieved by various cosmetic techniques that remove excess skin or fat and tighten skin and muscles. These procedures correct stubborn “problem areas” that haven’t responded to diet and exercise. Birmingham Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Ahmet R. Karaca, M.D., offers body sculpting for men and women who live in and around Detroit, Farmington Hills and the surrounding communities of Michigan.

What is Body Sculpting?

Body sculpting refers to various procedures that provide a sculpted and toned body contour. Body sculpting is often used to eliminate fatty deposits that have stubbornly accumulated in areas of the body in spite of your efforts with diet and exercise. There are a number of different procedures that are used to sculpt the body. Dr. Karaca will help you decide which is most suitable for you, depending on the area of the body being treated and the amount of fatty deposits that you want to eliminate.

Benefits of Body Sculpting

For many adults who have achieved their ideal weight and muscle tone through diet and exercise, but are having trouble eliminating the last stubborn fatty deposits accumulated in distinct problem areas, body sculpting can provide the finishing touch to your total transformation. Body sculpting can eliminate unsightly bumps and fat from problem areas, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, upper arms, back and the pubic or genital region. Body contouring provides a more toned and youthful appearance and boosts confidence and self-esteem. Most patients report that after body sculpting treatments, their clothing fits better and they feel more comfortable and confident about their appearance.

Types of Body Sculpting Offered

The following links describe our body sculpting procedures in greater detail. If you require more information, feel free to contact our office to schedule a consultation with our friendly and knowledgeable staff.


Liposuction is a procedure through which excess fatty deposits are extracted from problem areas via a vacuum suction process. Two miniscule incisions are made, and the fat is extracted using a very fine gauge tube called a cannula.

Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that tightens abdominal muscles and eliminates loose sagging skin, resulting in a flatter abdominal region and a slimmer waistline.

Mini Tummy Tuck

The mini tummy tuck is an alternative and less comprehensive procedure than the tummy tuck and is performed on patients who only require removal of fat and tightening of skin and muscles below the belly button.

Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian butt lift is a name commonly used to refer to a gluteal lift/augmentation procedure that enhances the shape and firmness of the buttocks by lifting and augmenting the gluteal muscles.


Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that rejuvenates and corrects asymmetry in the labia minora by reshaping the labia and trimming away excess skin.

Mommy Makeover

The Mommy Makeover is a combination of various cosmetic procedures designed to improve a woman’s body contour after pregnancy.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift is a cosmetic procedure that eliminates excess sagging skin and fat from the thighs to create a more toned, firm and shapely appearance.

Body Lift

The body lift is an excellent choice for men and women who have undergone extreme weight loss and wish to remove the folds of loose sagging skin left around the torso. This surgical procedure trims away the excess skin and may also be combined with other treatments, such as liposuction and breast enhancement for a total rejuvenating makeover.

Arm Lift

The arm lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that eliminates excess fat and loose skin from the upper arm to create a toned and streamlined contour.


Vanquish™ is a revolutionary new product that helps you ‘vanish’ or eliminate unsightly body fat without requiring the expense and recovery period normally associated with plastic surgery.

Am I a Good Candidate for Body Sculpting?

Body sculpting procedures are ideal for people who have already reached their ideal weight and are successfully maintaining it but want to eliminate bumps and fatty pockets resistant to diet and exercise. Every body sculpting procedure is personalized and varies between patients. The most important factor to consider when planning a body sculpting procedure is your overall good health. You should also maintain realistic expectations as to what may be reasonably achieved through cosmetic procedures.

How Much Does Body Sculpting Cost in Detroit?

Some body contouring procedures may be considered medically necessary and, hence, may be covered by health insurance, but most will not qualify for insurance coverage. In order to provide affordable body sculpting procedures for all our patients, Dr. Karaca proudly offers financing options and our office accepts cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
