Our range of customized body contouring procedures, including liposuction, can help you achieve a smoother and more toned appearance. Book a virtual plastic surgery consultation to find out which procedure is right for you.

Body contouring surgery encompasses a wide range of different body sculpting techniques, including liposuction and brachioplasty, which are used by plastic surgeons to reshape almost any area of the body for a more aesthetically pleasing figure. 

Some of the most common areas that are treated using body contouring procedures include: 

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Face
  • Thighs

How to Choose The Right Body Contouring Procedure For Your Needs 

At our Kelowna clinic, we offer our patients a wide range of surgical and non-surgical body contouring options, depending on their specific problem areas and aesthetic needs. Here are some of our most popular treatments and how to decide which one is right for you: 

  1. Liposuction 

Liposuction is one of the most popular body contouring surgeries available and it’s designed to slim and reshape certain areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportions. 

Some of the areas liposuction can treat include: 

  • Hips and buttocks
  • Back
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Thighs 
  • Chest area
  • Cheeks, chin, and neck

Things to Keep in Mind

Before opting for a liposuction treatment, keep in mind that it is NOT a weight loss surgery nor a substitute for proper diet and exercise. It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite or loose, saggy skin. 


  1. Arm Lift

Do you have extra folds of tissue under your arm that are making you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable? Then an arm lift (brachioplasty) could be the right body contouring procedure for you. 

Most often completed after the patient has undergone major weight loss, a brachioplasty is often recommended when extra skinfolds are causing general discomfort, poor self-esteem, and inflammation/rash in the area. 

An arm lift will be successful in: 

  • Eliminating any loose or sagging skin from the area between the underarm and elbow
  • Reshaping your upper arm for smoother skin and improved contours
  • Creating a more toned, firm and proportionate arm appearance
  • Reducing stubborn, localized pockets of fat in the upper arm area


  1. Medial Thigh Lift 

For patients who are experiencing sagging skin on their thighs due to weight loss or aging, a medial thigh lift can help you create a more toned and taut appearance. This procedure can be done in combination with liposuction if excess fat needs to be removed from the area as well. 

A medial thigh lift will: 

  • Improve your self confidence
  • Give your thighs a smoother and more toned appearance
  • Remove the cellulite look of thighs
  • Enhance the success of your weight loss

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
