Body contouring is a term used to describe the assortment of procedures available to reshape the body. Although the more common body contouring procedures performed in the United States today are liposuction and tummy tucks, patients also benefit from arm and thigh lifts, buttock augmentation, and surgery after massive weight loss. (1) Body contouring procedures allow patients to redefine their appearance and sculpt their ideal body by targeting certain areas. The results can be life-changing and long-term. Body contouring can also be the “icing on the cake” for those who need just a little help to achieve jaw-dropping results. Buttock procedures like Dr. Brian Arslanian’s Peach Pop Booty technique and the famous Brazilian Butt Lift have earned him the nickname Drhotlanta! If you’re ready to reveal a smoother silhouette or accentuate your assets, contact Dr. Arslanian’s offices today!
Dr. Arslanian has offices in Brookhaven and Jonesboro to conveniently serve the Atlanta area. Call (678) 894-9200 to schedule your personal consultation to start looking and feeling your best. In the meantime, follow him on Instagram: @DrHotlanta.

After Weight Loss Body Contouring
After losing large amounts of weight, many patients are left with loose, hanging skin. Not only is this uncomfortable and can make movement difficult, but it can also hide the results of all their hard work! Body contouring after weight loss can be the final, satisfying step on a person’s weight loss journey. Procedures like arm lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and gynecomastia surgery can sculpt leaner, smoother contours. And, since female breasts don’t tend to keep their curves during massive weight loss, a breast augmentation can readjust a patient’s proportions to help them achieve their ideal appearance.
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, contours the arms and rids patients of loose, sagging arm skin. This procedure is on the rise: in the United States, only 338 surgeries were performed during 2000, but by 2012, 15,457 brachioplasty surgeries that year. (2)
This procedure uses an incision along the underarm from the armpit to the elbow. Dr. Arslanian removes the excess, stretched tissue and reshapes the arms for an optimal outcome. The results are newly shaped arms that complement the natural proportions of the body.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
In a tummy tuck, strategic incisions are made to tighten and repair damaged abdominal muscles and lift sagging skin. Excess skin is removed, eliminating dimpled and stretch-marked skin. The remaining skin is tightened and firmed, and the belly button may be relocated to a more attractive position.
Non-Surgical Butt Lift
Non-surgical Butt Lifts are a great option for patients who don’t have enough body fat for a fat transfer or don’t have the time or desire to undergo a surgical procedure. Non-surgical butt lifts impart minimal downtime and discomfort.
These procedures are performed using a combination of injectables: Sculptra and Kybella.
Sculptra is a dermal filler composed of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a volumizing agent designed to fill volume deficits. (3) Kybella is a dermal injection composed of deoxycholic acid, which breaks down fatty tissues resulting in slimming and sculpting. Kybella is safe, proven, and already in widespread use as a double-chin reduction treatment.
Sculptra and Kybella function in harmony to boost and sculpt the buttock area without surgery.
Peach Pop Booty® – Non-Surgical Butt Lift
This procedure has a cute name but sexy results. Peach Pop Booty® is a non-surgical buttock augmentation that uses Sculptra and a patented suction mechanism. Peach Pop Booty® is quick and convenient: you can undergo this treatment in our office and then get right back to your day. You’ll have a rounder, more voluminous backside, and long-lasting results.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Brazilian Butt Lifts are in high demand, and Drhotlanta is up for the task. To ensure the safety of his patients, Dr. Arslanian uses SAFElipo technology for optimal contouring results. He is then able to inject the harvested fat to sculpt the derriere of your dreams. To see some of Dr. Arslanian’s stunning results, read his patients’ glowing reviews!
Pregnancy takes its toll on the body, but a Mommy Makeover procedure can help those who have had children take back control of their bodies. Your mommy makeover is designed just for you and will contain a personalized suite of treatments. A tummy tuck, breast procedure, and liposuction can be combined to re-define your curves, repair damaged abdominal muscles, and put some bounce back in your bosom.
Cellulite Treatment with Profound RF
Profound RF Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure that can banish dreaded cellulite by using a combination of microneedling and targeted radiofrequency wave technology. This combination tightens tissue, increases the skin’s volume, and reduces the appearance of cellulite from almost anywhere on the body. Results are long-lasting, with noticeable improvements after just one treatment!
A fat transfer uses unwanted fat from those “problem areas” to plump your facial features, buttocks, hands, or breasts. Fat transfers offer the advantage of being readily accepted by the body and offer a natural way to volumize contours.
Fat Transfer with PRP
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is derived from a sample of your own blood. It has many useful cosmetic and regenerative applications. With the help of PRP, the fat cells transferred from one site to another have a nourishing advantage that increases their likelihood to thrive.
Our hands age just like the rest of our body does – they’re just more visible. They lose fat and volume over time, and our skin becomes thinner and less elastic. This leads to thin, bony hands with exposed knuckles and veins; this can be a dead giveaway of our age. Hand rejuvenation improves the appearance of the hands by using injections of fat transfers and dermal fillers.
Women consider labiaplasty to address a number of concerns, including intimacy, physical discomfort, or cosmetic reasons. This surgical procedure removes unwanted skin from the labia to reduce the size of this delicate, intimate area. The results are a more streamlined and symmetrical appearance.
In addition to his wide range of cosmetic services, Dr. Arslanian also performs reconstructive surgery. He can treat children born with cleft palates or ear deformities. He also revises the results of prior surgeries that may have been unsuccessful or left the patient with extreme scarring. Facial reconstruction surgery can correct damaged facial features following an injury. He also performs breast reconstruction to give women back beautiful sets of breasts. Reconstructive surgery allows Dr. Arslanian to put his skills to use to truly change lives.
Body contouring procedures range from minimally invasive to involved surgeries. But regardless of the body contouring technique that you choose, the ideal candidate for any procedure is in good health and at a steady weight. Dr. Arslanian will determine your candidacy for a body contouring procedure during your personal consultation. To learn more about the other services Dr. Arslanian’s office offers, follow his blog!
During your personal consultation with Dr. Arslanian, you’ll meet with him one-on-one for a discreet and honest conversation at his offices in Jonesboro or Brookhaven. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the options available to you. Dr. Arslanian will review your medical history and examine the areas you’d like to be treated. If the doctor feels that you’d benefit more from an alternative procedure, he’ll be able to recommend the safest and most effective option for you. Once you’ve determined which treatment will best help you achieve your aesthetic goals, you’ll be given all the information you need to prepare for your body contouring, the details of your procedure, and what to expect during your recovery.
Whether you’re after a leaner, lithe silhouette, bodacious buttocks, or just investigating ways to turn back the clock, there’s a body contouring procedure that can help. Choosing to undergo a cosmetic procedure is a gift to yourself. Feeling attractive and confident allows you to be the best version of yourself, and this can have far-reaching benefits to your everyday life.
