Body contouring surgery is a blanket term for procedures that change the shape of the body, from removing excess fat to tightening loose and sagging skin. It includes surgical procedures such as liposuction or body lifts, tummy tucks, mommy makeovers, Brazilian butt lifts (BBL), as well as non-surgical fat reduction.
I had a BBL and Lipo 360 I’m 15 weeks post op and my results are amazing! I was worried I wouldn’t see my results enough because my BMI was only 24 but the body contouring and fat transfer was perfect! Highly recommend DR Hardaway she is a bit more expensive then others in the area the results are worth it!

Liposuction is a body contouring surgery method that has become one of the safest and most commonly performed procedures. The process involves removing fatty deposits around the body to help improve the shape of the body. Liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss.
Liposuction is a way to shape and contour the body, producing dramatic changes in a small amount of time by removing stubborn fatty deposits under the skin.
Although liposuction is most often associated with the thighs and abdomen, liposuction can be performed on many places of the body, such as the thighs, abdomen, arms, back, and chin.
Vaser liposuction (ultrasonic) and Smartlipo (laser) are types of liposuction that use heat to liquefy the fat prior to removal. The heat promotes collagen production and skin tightening…[Read More]

Brazilian Butt Lift – BBL
A Brazilian butt lift, also known as a BBL, is a body contouring surgical procedure that transfers fat from other parts of the body to the buttocks, as well as shaping the butt. Fat is taken usually from the abdomen, back, or thighs, and transferred to the butt. This procedure increases the size of the butt without the use of implants. Liposuction is used to remove fat from unwanted areas of the body and is reinserted into the buttocks.
Brazilian Butt Lift Gallery
This gives the butt a rounder and fuller appearance, resulting in a curvier appearance to the figure. A Brazilian butt lift does not specifically address loose skin or cellulite on the butt. A buttock or gluteal augmentation, also known as a butt lift, is a procedure that can address loose skin on the butt.
It can be a combination of fat grafting, fat transfer, and lifting, depending on the needs of the patient. This body contouring surgery procedure can be combined with liposuction to help further contour the body…[Read More]
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Hardaway and her staff. I had liposuction, tummy tuck, and a Brazilian butt lift. I have been very pleased with my results and follow-up care. I am now 3 months post-procedure. I highly recommend this surgeon!

A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures commonly performed after childbirth. A full mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck, breast enhancement, and occasionally liposuction. Sometimes, liposuction is performed instead of a tummy tuck, depending on the patient. The procedure can also include a thigh lift and a Brazilian Butt Lift. The procedures are performed during a single operation so that there is only one recovery period.
Though, if needed for safety reasons, a mommy makeover body contouring surgery can be performed in multiple sessions. Arm lifts, thigh lifts, and tummy tucks are all procedures that lift and tighten the mentioned areas on the body. Body lift surgery is a tool to improve the tone and shape of various parts of the body. It removes excess skin and some fat and can be performed on both men and women. This is most commonly performed on the stomach, back, buttocks, or thighs…[Read More]
Mommy Makeover Gallery
Ready to be me again. After going through four miscarriages and two births (4 yrs and 14 months) my body was not as it was. Had a full tummy tuck, lipo and breast lift. My recovery was fairly easy and I did not experience much pain at all. The worst part of my experience was being hunched over and not seeing my kids for two weeks. The no kids was my husbands idea but in hindsight it was the best decision. After the first two weeks I was caring for myself and my kids with assistance. It’s been three months now and I only feel slight pulling in my belly. I had good results but have additional work to do with diet and exercise. I’m down 13 pounds since the surgery.

A fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, is a surgical procedure in which fat is transferred from one area of the body to another. The fat is first removed from another area of the body through liposuction. The fat is processed and then re-injected into the desired area. The hips, face, buttocks, breasts, hands, and feet are common areas of fat grafting. A Brazilian butt lift is a common body contouring surgery procedure, where fat is taken from the stomach, thighs, or back, and is then transferred to the butt…[Read More]

I have had 4 surgery sessions here over the last 18 months for tummy tuck, upper and lower blepharoplasty, mini face lift, liposuction for fat injections to the face, and neck lift. I did a lot of shopping around and chose this facility and doctor based on professionalism and the atmosphere of the facility. Dr. Hardaway and the staff have an excellent rapport with each other which made me feel totally emotionally comfortable in terms of them working effectively as a team and their professionalism on all levels. It felt so much more personal that the office and surgery are self-contained. I could not be happier with the results of every procedure. Dr. Hardaway skills include delivering managed expectations and her “needlework” is amazing. There is no scarring anywhere except the inevitable from the tummy tuck but that has diminished beautifully.

Panniculectomy with Liposuction
A panniculectomy is a body contouring surgical procedure that removes excess skin from the lower abdomen, sometimes referred to as an “apron”. Unlike a tummy tuck, which tightens the abdominal muscles underneath as well, a panniculectomy removes and tightens only the loose skin. This procedure is often performed after extreme weight loss or pregnancy, in which excess skin on the abdomen is common.
A panniculectomy is often combined with liposuction, contouring the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin. These body contouring surgery procedures can be performed separately, but are often combined for stronger results…[Read More]

Absolutely 5 stars! Dr. Hardaway is the best at her craft in making you look and feel more confident about yourself. I had abdominal reconstruction surgery done by her after I had my very large twins many years ago. My body was a mess with poorly repaired hernia’s etc… and she made me look human again. If I may add sexy! Years later she removed my tiresome double chin. The procedure instantly boosted my confidence. I am happy with no regrets! She and her staff are professional and fantastic. If you want to improve yourself or make it disappear, call the magician, Dr. Hardaway, she will make it happen for you, inside and out. A truly positive and rewarding experience for me, and that’s the truth!!!

As men age, the fat tends to gather around the abdomen, the breast area, known as gynecomastia, and the flanks, or “love handles”.
