Body Contouring 101 at Amavi Aesthetic Surgery


Are you looking to eliminate excess fat and skin and reshape or contour an area of your body? If so, body contouring in Denver, CO may be an effective procedure choice.

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is an effective way to reduce stubborn pockets of fat that will not budge, despite a healthy lifestyle. Liposuction is often the main technique used to achieve body contouring, though fat grafting may also be employed. At Amavi Aesthetic Surgery, we offer body contouring to help men and women achieve the body of their dreams.

Various Body Contouring Procedures


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a special suction technique to remove fat from many different areas of the body. The areas that are most commonly treated with liposuction include the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, or neck.

Fat Grafting

Fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using your own fat to enhance other areas of the body. During this procedure, excess fat will be collected from areas such as the belly, hips, or thighs, and then transferred to the area you wish to add volume to. Common areas for fat to be transferred include the breasts, buttocks, face, hips, lips, cheeks, hands, and more.

Who is a Candidate for Body Contouring?

Healthy individuals who are unhappy with their body contours can often benefit from body contouring. However, it is important to understand that body contouring is not a weight loss procedure, and patients should be at or near their goal weight before undergoing this procedure. To learn more regarding candidacy, please contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Rau.
