These operations are in great demand as the body contour can be distorted in many ways, either from birth, or due to pregnancy or weight gain. The body envelope, which gives it its shape, is formed of skin and fat. If there is no excess skin, Dr Pascal will simply modify the volume of fat using liposuction. The scars associated with this technique are very small. If there is excess skin, Dr Pascal will remove it at the same time as the fat. These operations are called “lifts” because they pull the skin back up. The scars are larger but Dr Pascal will do everything possible to make them discreet both with respect to their position and their quality.
