What Are My Body Sculpting Options for the Midsection? By Vishnu Rumalla on April 20, 2020

Slender female body shows tones midsectionFew physical features convey beauty and health like a slim midsection. If you have struggled to tone your lower chest, abdomen, and midsection, body surgery can deliver drastic and quick cosmetic results.

Dr. Vishnu Rumalla offers liposuction, SmartLipo, tummy tuck, and body lift procedures in Fort Worth, TX. These body contouring options can tone and define your midsection. Patients may undergo one treatment, or Dr. Rumalla can customize a treatment plan that uses multiple treatments to deliver drastic results.

Which Treatments Are Right for Me?

Before your body plastic surgery for the midsection can be scheduled, your cosmetic goals will be discussed with Dr. Rumalla in Fort Worth. Common cosmetic concerns related to the midsection include:

  • Stretched abdominal muscles resulting from excess weight or pregnancy
  • A “pooch” around the abdomen that does not respond to diet and exercise
  • Excess skin and fat in the middle and lower abdomen
  • Prominent pockets of hip fat (love handles)

Once Dr. Rumalla listens to your personal and cosmetic goals and examines the physical features in question, he will customize a body contouring plan that will include one or more of the following procedures.


Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that removes fat. After anesthesia has been administered, Dr. Rumalla can use a special hollow tube to target pockets of fat. The cannula loosens fat so it can be removed using a special suctioning device. Liposuction incisions are very small. The body contouring procedure is great for sculpting specific areas of the body, but it will not result in significant weight loss.


Compared to liposuction, SmartLipo is a less invasive alternative. The treatment uses three targeted lasers that are introduced into the body through a small cannula. The laser literally melts fat away so it can be suctioned out of the body. One benefit of SmartLipo is that it only requires a short recovery. Most people are able to return to work within a day or two.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck can drastically improve your midsection. Once you are under general anesthesia, a, incision will be made in your lower abdomen. The curved line will run from near one hipbone to the other. Through this incision, Dr. Rumalla will be able to remove excess skin. Liposuction can be administered through the incision if needed.

Many of our Fort Worth patients benefit from having their abdominal muscles surgically tightened as part of their tummy tuck.

Body Lift

Following bariatric surgery or massive weight loss, a body lift can offer drastic results by allowing Dr. Rumalla to extend the benefits of a tummy tuck outward toward the hips and buttocks. By removing excess skin along these areas, our Fort Worth patients are able to enjoy the full cosmetic benefits of their weight loss.
