Men and women who are active and fit may still need help achieving the sculpted look they desire. Body contouring plastic surgery at our Toledo, Ohio, practice includes procedures such as tummy tuck surgery and liposuction. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Craig Colville has performed thousands of body contouring procedures during his career and can help patients put the finishing touches on their already healthy bodies.
Dr. Colville is a board-certified plastic surgeon who creates custom surgical plans for his patients. In Toledo since 1990, Dr. Colville offers patients the chance to visualize possible lifelike outcomes of their surgeries using the VECTRA® XT Advanced 3D Imaging Solutions System.
Many of the body contouring procedures he performs can be combined, if appropriate, for more of a full-body improvement. The mommy makeover, for example, often combines breast enhancement, tummy tuck and liposuction.
A tummy tuck can help improve the shape and appearance of your abdomen by removing excess skin, repairing separated muscles, and eliminating stubborn fat. Women who have gone through childbirth are often excellent candidates for a tummy tuck, but men often have the procedure as well. The procedure is often combined with a breast lift for a mommy makeover.

Bulging flesh on your back can make clothes fit poorly and, for women, can make it very uncomfortable to wear bras and other clothing. If you haven’t achieved your goals for a body that’s firmer, more youthful-looking, and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical back lift may be a good option. A back lift reduces skin bulges or rolls in the middle and upper back by reducing excess skin, resulting in better-proportioned contours of the back.
