    Body Plastic Surgery Procedures Columbus


    You’ve been exercising for so long and you still have those certain areas of fat that won’t disappear. There has to be an easier way! Liposuction at the Columbus, Ohio office of Dr. Bivik Shah might just be the answer for the right candidate. And, it's easy – or at least it's easier than working out for all those years! So, what is liposuction all about? How safe is it? How bad is the pain? How long will it take? We will attempt to answer some of the more general questions here. Specific questions and diagnoses should be obtained only from a personal consultation with Dr. Shah.

    Tummy Tuck

    Skin has a limit to how much it can stretch and still return to normal. When it stretches beyond that point, exercise and diet are not effective in returning your body to its original shape and firmness. The most effective method of dealing with this condition is to undergo a tummy tuck. Columbus, Ohio plastic surgeon Dr. Bivik Shah can perform this procedure in order to give you the smooth, firm abdomen you have always dreamed of! There are several reasons why someone may choose to have tummy tuck, including loose or excess skin resulting from weight loss, liposuction, or pregnancy. Tummy tuck corrects these conditions by removing loose, sagging skin and excess fat from the middle and lower abdomen.


    Arm Lift After Weight Loss

    Aside from attracting undue attention, a major drawback of excess skin is that patients may be forced to purchase larger-sized clothing than would ordinarily be necessary. At the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery, we see many patients from Ohio that have lost large amounts of weight, but are still experiencing difficulties due to their extra skin. Fortunately, Dr. Bivik Shah is an expert in arm lift, or brachioplasty, which involves excess skin removal from the arms. Ohio doctors Bivik Shah and Rafael Villalobos is happy to perform this surgery at either the Institute of Plastic Surgery or at one of the many Columbus area hospitals. The choice is up to you; your convenience is paramount.

    Thigh Lift After Weight Loss

    After losing a great deal of weight in the thigh area due to bariatric surgery, many patients in Columbus and around Ohio continue to experience problems related to excess skin remaining on the body. These difficulties range from ill-fitting clothing to uncomfortable rashes, and can generally only be solved through excess skin removal. Columbus doctors Bivik Shah understand the frustrations experienced by these patients and can help them to achieve their final weight loss goals by performing thigh lift. 

    Tummy Tuck After Weight Loss

    Dr. Shah understands how intimidating skin tightening and bariatric surgery can be. At our Columbus practice, serving all of Ohio, we will make sure that you understand every step of the process and that all of your questions are answered. The procedure can be done at any Columbus area hospital that is convenient to you.

    Dr. Bivik Shah performs body contouring for patients who have lost large amounts of weight after bariatric surgery. If you have recently had bariatric surgery in Columbus, Ohio or in the surrounding areas, and now need to have excess skin removed, contact our office today to schedule a body contouring consultation.

    Belt Lipectomy After Weight Loss

    You feel wonderful after losing significant weight on your own or after bariatric surgery. Your friends and family say you look great, and you are certainly much healthier. However, when you look in the mirror, you may not feel that you have achieved all of your goals because loose, baggy skin remains on your lower body. This is a common experience among those individuals who have lost a great deal of weight. To help his patients feel better about their appearance, Dr. Bivik Shah provides belt lipectomy procedures for bariatric surgery patients and others in the Dayton and Columbus, Ohio areas who have lost a significant amount of weight.

    Buttock Augmentation

    Are you satisfied with the shape of your butt? If not, you may be a good candidate for a butt augmentation ( butt lift) procedure at our office serving Columbus and Dayton, Ohio. These procedures have been steadily increasing in popularity. Today, many women are seeking the various forms of butt augmentation and butt lift surgeries to improve their figure. These procedures are becoming all the more important as celebrities like J-Lo and BeyoncĂ© lead the latest trend in attractiveness – shapely, full buttocks.

    Other Plastic Surgery

    Columbus plastic surgeon Bivik Shah has extensive experience and training in various plastic surgery procedures. In addition to blepharoplasty, face lift, forehead lift, chemical peels, and Botox® Cosmetic, plastic surgeon Bivik Shah also performs ear surgery (otoplasty), acne scar removal, cheek augmentation, and rhinoplasty.


    Recent developments have significantly enhanced the effectiveness of body plastic surgery procedures. Techniques such as laser-assisted liposuction and 3D imaging have become game-changers, allowing surgeons to achieve more precise results with less downtime. These advancements ensure that whether you're considering a tummy tuck, arm lift, or thigh lift, you're receiving the most cutting-edge care available.

    Age can influence the results of body plastic surgery, with younger skin typically responding better due to its elasticity. However, procedures like belt lipectomy or butt augmentation are designed to cater to individuals of various ages, focusing on enhancing body contour rather than just removing excess skin or fat.

    In plastic surgery, specific procedures, like liposuction, offer more flexibility for revision or correction. It's crucial to discuss expectations and possible outcomes with your surgeon beforehand, particularly for procedures with more permanent results, such as butt augmentation.

    While body plastic surgery procedures like liposuction and tummy tucks can remove excess fat and skin, they're not weight-loss solutions. Instead, they're most effective for contouring the body after significant weight loss has been achieved through diet and exercise.

    Post-operative pain management is a critical aspect of recovery. Surgeons at the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery employ various techniques, including local anesthetics and controlled medication, to ensure patients remain comfortable throughout their recovery period.

    Understanding the type of anesthesia used during your procedure is vital. Whether undergoing a thigh or arm lift, modern anesthesia techniques ensure safety and comfort, minimizing discomfort and facilitating a smoother recovery process.

    Adopting healthy lifestyle habits is essential both before and after undergoing body plastic surgery procedures. A balanced diet, regular exercise, and avoiding smoking can significantly improve surgery outcomes and overall health.
