What Is Body Sculpting?

Body sculpting refers to a range of procedures and treatments, from surgical techniques to energy-based devices, used to achieve different aesthetic goals. At Southwest Michigan Plastic and Hand Surgery, we design treatment plans to help patients achieve their ideal bodies through advanced techniques and methods. Our procedures are combinable, customizable, and versatile, and they provide an effective solution for patients with all different concerns and goals.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that can enhance the size and shape of the breasts to improve body proportions, correct aesthetic imperfections, and help patients feel more confident in their clothes. We offer different implant types, including saline, gel-filled, and gummy bear, to meet each patient’s needs. Breast augmentation also pairs well with other sculpting procedures, including the mommy makeover.

Who Is a Candidate?

Women who want to improve the appearance of their breasts by increasing size, fullness, shape, and projection make good candidates for breast augmentation. Women with naturally smaller breasts are good candidates for this procedure as it can naturally enhance the size, so they can achieve their ideal body proportions.

It is also a good option for those who have experienced trauma or undergone a mastectomy. An initial consultation will help us learn more about your ultimate treatment goals to determine which type of implant and procedure is right for you.


Liposuction is a surgical contouring procedure that permanently eliminates unwanted fat cells from the body. During the procedure, the appropriate anesthetic is used to numb the area. Then Dr. Raghu Elluru creates an incision and uses advanced technologies and precise techniques to gently suction unwanted fat cells from the body, using methods that sculpt, contour, and define the treatment area.

Liposuction can be combined with other procedures, including a tummy tuck, mommy, makeover, and other body sculpting treatment plans to help patients eliminate those stubborn fat cells that remain unresponsive to even the most strict and strenuous diet and workout routine.

Who Is a Candidate?

Patients who want to eliminate excess fat cells resistant to diet and exercise are good liposuction candidates. The procedure immediately and permanently removes fat cells from the body so patients can enjoy a tighter and more contoured physique. An initial consultation will determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction. At that time, we can make other recommendations to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck is a body contouring procedure that tightens the abdominals by surgically removing excess skin and tissue, using liposuction to eliminate stubborn fat, and strengthening the abdominal muscles to create a lean abdominal profile. Like all of our other body sculpting options, this procedure is completely customizable. We design the surgical treatment plan according to each patient’s needs to help them achieve a flat, tight, and defined midsection.

Who Is a Candidate?

The best candidates for a tummy tuck are those who cannot achieve their ideal midsection with healthy lifestyle choices, including a clean diet and consistent exercise routine. If excess skin and stubborn fat prevent you from achieving your ideal physique, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck.

An initial consultation allows us to determine your treatment eligibility to design a customized surgical plan to eliminate excess skin, reduce excess fat cells, and strengthen your abdominal muscles to help you achieve your ideal midsection.

Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy, nursing, and everything involved in growing and giving birth to a baby can change your body, sometimes to the point that you may feel you don’t recognize yourself anymore. If pregnancy and nursing have caused drooping breasts, excess fat, loose skin, and other aesthetic imperfections, the mommy makeover is the perfect solution.

We custom-tailor this procedure to the exact needs of the patient. It can include breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction. We aim to help women feel more confident by achieving a body that may rival their pre-baby form.

Who Is a Candidate?

Women who want to undergo a full body transformation after pregnancy make good candidates for this procedure. It can address multiple issues during a single procedure to help women achieve their ideal breasts and midsection, eliminate stubborn fat cells, and tighten loose skin. An initial consultation will determine what procedures are right for you, so we can move forward and help you achieve your ideal body.

EvolveX Transform

EvolveX Transform is a non-invasive body sculpting energy-based treatment that uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and EMS to tighten the skin, reduce excess fat, and force involuntary muscular contractions to tighten and tone the muscles in the treatment area. It can help patients reach their ideal physiques without surgery, discomfort, or downtime.

Who Is a Candidate?

Patients interested in a non-surgical solution to sculpt and contour their bodies make good candidates for EvolveX Transform, as do those who want to enhance the results of surgical contouring procedures for added benefits.


BodyTite is a minimally invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin, eliminate excess body fat, and sculpt the treatment areas. During the treatment, a tiny probe is inserted just below the skin’s surface to deliver radiofrequency heat energy for an instant collagen contraction and to heat stubborn fat cells to break them down.

The external probe delivers radiofrequency heat energy to the exterior surface of the skin to promote skin tightening results. We can use BodyTite to address the most common problem areas virtually anywhere on the body, including the arms, back, legs, thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and more.

Who Is a Candidate?

Patients looking for a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment to tighten loose skin, reduce excess fat and deliver natural results without downtime make good candidates for BodyTite. It also pairs well with other surgical body sculpting procedures for enhanced results.
