Body contouring, which can also be called body sculpting, is the process of changing the shape of the body in order to achieve desired results. Perhaps you have excess fat around your tummy and wish you could have a slimmer midsection. Body contouring can accomplish that. Some of the common goals of body sculpting include getting tighter skin, fat removal, and having an overall firmer and younger appearance. At Beauty Refined, we offer an array of body contouring options.
- Laser Lipo
- Laser Lipolysis

Liposuction is one of the most popular surgeries in the United States and has helped millions of patients improve their initial shape or achieve their ideal look. People often consider liposuction when they’re unable to lose weight in certain areas of their bodies and decide to have their fat surgically removed. The best candidates for liposuction are those who are 20-30 lbs. near their ideal weight because liposuction helps target and eliminate troubling fat in accumulative areas. However, it should be noted that liposuction is not a means of drastic weight loss, as the procedure is meant to contour the body. Liposuction is helpful in achieving a healthy look but is recommended only when the recipient is in fairly good physical condition.
Fotona TightSculpting® is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive laser treatment that effectively reduces fat, sculpts, transforms, and tightens any area of the body. Fotona TightSculpting is both safe and comfortable and yields highly effective results for patients who have tried other methods and who struggle with minor skin laxity or stubborn fat.
Laser Lipolysis with Fotona®/Laser Lipo
Losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be a very difficult thing. Despite the hours in the gym and a major overhaul on the way you eat, you’re not seeing the results in the mirror. Sometimes our bodies have pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. If you find yourself in this situation, then you might be a great candidate for laser lipolysis, which can be used to target areas such as the abdomen, love handles thighs, arms, or neck. At Beauty Refined, Dr. Tantawi carries out Laser Lipolysis with the Fotona® Laser System. Fotona®’s laser lipolysis can be performed under local anesthesia. A very fine laser fiber is inserted into the treatment area, where the laser light causes the fat to melt and then is removed. Simultaneously, the laser also tightens the surrounding skin to prevent it from sagging after the removal of unwanted fat. Say goodbye to unwanted fat!
SmartLipo is a cosmetic procedure, which removes unwanted deposits of fat that are usually difficult to get rid of with traditional diet and exercise. These fatty deposits are usually found in areas such as the abdomen, waist, neck, hips, thighs, knees, and arms. The main goal is to improve the size and shape of a specific body area. SmartLipo is not a weight loss procedure. For those patients that need to lose weight, we offer our popular weight loss programs that can be done before or after the liposuction.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.
Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:
- Prior surgery
- Significant fluctuations in weight
Many women find it difficult to lose excess pounds after the baby comes along–even with diet and exercise. Simply put, the body often doesn’t bounce back.
Problem areas that can develop after giving birth include breasts that have begun to sag and lose volume, excess fat in the belly, hips, thighs, flanks, or buttocks, and stretched out skin in the abdominal area.
The Mommy Makeover is an amazing customized procedure that allows you to restore–or even improve upon–your pre-pregnancy curves.
Dr. Tantawi is a highly experienced physician in all of the components that comprise this procedure. He possesses several years of experience in all types of plastic surgery. Dr. Tantawi has performed many tummy tucks and mini tummy tucks as well as a great number of breast augmentations using traditional implant surgery and more recently, fat transfer, the hottest, most effective system for natural breast augmentation without implants.
