Body Contouring in Northern Virginia

Diet and exercise are excellent ways to improve quality of life and health, but even with these efforts, it can be difficult to maintain an evenly toned and sculpted appearance.

What Are Some Popular Body Contouring Solutions?

Plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Desman can help people of all shapes and sizes achieve the look they want. Body contouring options offered by our practice include:

Body Sculpting for Men

Dr. Desman also offers male-specific body contouring options such as male breast reduction, and liposuction treatments that focus on areas more prone to fat accumulation in men. During your consultation with Dr. Desman, he will assess your problem areas, listen to your concerns, and customize a treatment plan that meets all of your needs.

Bridal Makeover

On your wedding day, every detail matters, which is why many brides-to-be are choosing to undergo bridal makeover procedures, which include everything from revitalizing skin peels to breast augmentation. Depending on your cosmetic goals, Dr. Desman can devise a body contouring plan that helps you look your best on your wedding day. And like the mommy makeover, you can pick and choose which treatments you’d prefer.


This body contouring procedure is sought by many patients in Alexandria and Northern Virginia who’d like to target stubborn pockets of fat on their body, in areas like the tummy, hips, and thighs. It is performed using a steel, tube-like device called a cannula. The cannula is inserted through a small incision, and essentially suctions out fat deposits, resulting in a more sculpted body. Liposuction is a great option for patients who have excess fat that doesn’t respond to traditional methods of weight loss.

Mommy Makeover

Local moms know how hectic life can get, especially when balancing the demands of motherhood with trying to maintain cosmetic goals. Dr. Desman recommends the popular mommy makeover, which can include as many or as few body sculpting procedures as you’d like. Whether you’d prefer liposuction and a tummy tuck, or non-invasive options like Botox® Cosmetic injections, Dr. Desman is happy to create a completely customized treatment plan.

Thigh Lift

Whether you’re trying to get ready for bikini season or you simply are unhappy with the appearance of your thighs, a thigh lift may be exactly what you need to rejuvenate your legs. With a thigh lift, Dr. Desman can remove excess skin and fatty tissue in the thigh area, giving them a more lifted appearance with smooth, toned results. For this procedure, incisions are typically well camouflaged, so you can feel comfortable baring your body at the beach without having to worry about visible scars.

Tummy Tuck

The abdomen is a common source of cosmetic insecurity for patients. Over time, the abdominal muscles can atrophy, leading to an overall sagging appearance. This is especially true in the case of women who’ve given birth, because the abdominal muscles are stretched beyond the point of returning to normal. With an abdominoplasty procedure, also known as a “tummy tuck,” patients can restore a toned, sculpted shape to their abdomen area.

Upper Arm Lift

After a certain age, many patients find that the skin on their arms begins to sag, even with regular exercise and a proper diet. This sagging skin may cause you to look older than you actually are. Fortunately, an upper arm lift is a highly targeted body contouring procedure that can eliminate loose skin and excess fatty tissue on the arms. And with careful placement of the incisions, Dr. Desman can ensure that your scars will be hardly noticeable.
