Body procedures are surgical procedures performed to improve the appearance of a number of areas of the body. At Bourgeois Freel Plastic Surgery, we provide several procedures for the body in Baton Rouge to safely and effectively cater to the needs of our patients.

Body Lift

The body lift is a comprehensive lift procedure that involves multiple regions of the body. It removes stubborn fat and excess skin, and it tightens the remaining skin for a contoured appearance. A body lift can include procedures such as a lower body lift, tummy tuck, breast lift, arm lift, thigh lift, and upper-back lipectomy. The body lift is usually performed with liposuction.

Bra Line Lift (Upper-Back Lipectomy)

A bra line lift, or upper-back lipectomy, is a body-contouring procedure that removes excess sagging skin and stubborn fat from the upper back.


The appearance of a woman’s labia can change due to aging, childbirth, and genetics. Labiaplasty is a procedure that removes labial tissues to create a more natural appearance. The procedure can involve reducing length and thickness, addressing discoloration, and improving symmetry.


“This is a doctor who truly cares, and will go the extra mile or spend the extra time to make sure the patient is informed and happy.”



Liposuction is a body procedure that reduces excess fat in various areas. This procedure is often performed to get rid of stubborn fat that diet and exercise cannot eliminate.

Lower-Body Lift

A lower-body lift is also called a circumferential abdominoplasty. This body-contouring procedure is a combination of abdominoplasty and the buttock lift. Aside from the entire lower abdomen, the treatment areas also include the hips, outer thighs, lower back, and buttocks. It removes excess fat and skin while tightening loose abdominal muscles and the remaining skin.

Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a comprehensive body procedure for women after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. It involves multiple procedures to help restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy appearance. It is customized for each patient and can include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, and/or liposuction.

Post-Bariatric Body Contouring

A bariatric procedure can result in a significant reduction in weight. Unfortunately, this drastic weight loss can leave loose and saggy excess skin in various body areas. Post-bariatric body contouring removes this excess skin and tightens the remaining skin. Treatment areas may include the face and neck, upper arms, chest and breasts, abdomen, flanks, buttocks, and thighs.

Thigh Lift

To contour the inner thighs, we perform a medial thigh lift procedure. We can also perform an outer thigh lift depending on the needs of the patient. These surgical procedures remove drooping thigh skin and pockets of stubborn excess fat, creating sculpted thighs.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a body-contouring procedure that contours the abdomen by reducing excess fat and skin. It then tightens the remaining skin and abdominal muscles. This leads to a fitter and sculpted abdomen.

Am I a Good Candidate for Body Procedures?

A consultation is required to determine if the patient is a good candidate for body procedures. The best candidates are in good overall health, are non-smokers, and have realistic expectations in terms of results. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or suffering from certain health conditions, this can negatively affect candidacy.
