Dr. Ditesheim’s Approach to Body Sculpting

Dr. Ditesheim takes a more artistic and aesthetic approach to helping each patient be a better version of themselves. More than just removing fat or cutting away excess skin, he first looks at the skeletal and muscular frame and determines where the extra tissue is interrupting the patient’s desired shape. There is a wide range of solutions available, which he carefully selects based on the patient. Fat removal from the tummy might be a solution for one person, while circumferential liposuction and a tummy tuck might be an optimal choice for a different person. Men, for example, often prefer to restore the “V” shape to their torso, which is why the body analysis will be different for men and women.

Tummy Tuck

If you wish you had a firmer, flatter abdomen, then a tummy tuck might be the right solution for you to get that “wow!” result that will make people take notice. This powerful procedure tightens the stretched abdominal muscles and removes excess skin to restore a smoother, flatter shape to your midsection. With Dr. Ditesheim’s advanced surgical techniques and rapid recovery protocol, you will be back to most daily activities within a couple of short weeks.

If you have concerns about what this procedure entails, the good news is that we provide a range of options that can include various types of liposuction with a tuck. You may find that a tummy tuck is not even necessary and that one of our lipo procedures will get you the artistically-sculpted form that works for your body.

Mommy Makeover

You’ve got the best (and sometimes the toughest) job in the world and you do it well. But that doesn’t mean you have to live with sagging breasts, excess skin or other unwanted changes after you become a mom. Restoring your body the way you want to be can help you feel like yourself again and a mommy makeover is designed to do just that, in one surgery with one recovery. While tummy tucks, liposuction, and breast augmentations and/or lifts are frequently included as part of the makeover, you can also choose to get only the procedures that will help you get to your ideal physique.


Gynecomastia is a condition in which men have enlarged breasts for a variety of reasons ranging from weight gain to hormonal imbalance. Using a variety of techniques to sculpt the chest and minimize scarring, gynecomastia surgery restores a masculine appearance.

Unwanted fat bulges like to sit in the most inconvenient spots, don’t they? Like on our belly, hips and thighs, keeping clothes from fitting as well as they could, or throwing our bodies slightly out of proportion. Liposuction reduces fat bulges and sculpts an improved contour, enhancing your overall shape. We have multiple liposuction procedures that we offer, find out more about them here.

Liposuction has been in use for many years as an effective method of permanently reducing fat and sculpting the body in Charlotte. Dr. Ditesheim offers liposuction through the latest proven technologies – including Renuvion, which is often paired with liposuction for better results – to help patients achieve their ideal body contour and deliver the best results. By heating up the ligaments that hold the skin together, Renuvion skin tightening can enhance the results of lipo or body sculpting in Charlotte.

Vaser Liposuction 

VASER lipo is a more aggressive yet safe approach to removing stubborn fat or sculpting fat that is very close to the skin (also known as superficial liposuction). High def liposuction and abdominal etching all require more specialized technology, but VASER utilizes sound waves to strategically get rid of fat without the need for surgical intervention. 

AquaShape Liposuction 

AquaShape liposuction is a gentler liposuction option which is especially beneficial for fat transfer patients, as the procedure extracts fat which can be quickly injected to areas such as the face, breasts, or buttocks without a lengthy purifying process. AquaShape is therefore a great option for sculpting the body and defining an ideal shape with feminine curves for women or strong, defined lines for men. Dr. Ditesheim is the only surgeon in the Carolinas to offer this technology and has performed it on over 1,000 patients.

High Definition Liposuction 

High definition liposuction can produce the best kind of body shaping results in Charlotte, which you can check out for yourself in our before-and-after photo gallery. It is a more artistic, advanced body sculpting procedure that requires additional, rigorous training, which not every plastic surgeon has accomplished. Your body is three-dimensional – it should only make sense that your plastic surgeon is able to work in three dimensions when sculpting your body to improve muscle tone.

Lower Body Lifts and Thigh Lifts

A lower body lift could restore the contours for a patient who struggles with loose skin on their waist, thighs, and buttocks, similar to what an abdominoplasty does for the abdomen. This type of body sculpting trims away loose skin from the body that often remains after achieving a massive weight loss. In addition, if a patient has excess fat on the treatment areas, liposuction could remove the fat and enhance body contours further.

If you want to focus on tightening and smoothing the thighs specifically, a lateral thigh lift procedure is a more targeted approach to remove the stretched skin and restore the shape that they are meant to be. A medial thigh lift does the same for the inner thigh area.

Arm Shaping

Many women are uncomfortable wearing sleeveless tops or outfits that expose the upper arms, due to the skin and fat tissue that builds up between the elbow and the shoulder. Arm shaping surgery via AquaShape liposuction can recontour this problem area without the need for general anesthesia. Arm skin that has lost all elasticity, appears thin, crepey, or hangs down will need to be removed surgically with a brachioplasty. Renuvion can also be used to enhance the result even further, and the final result can be completely liberating for some women who now feel comfortable wearing any kind of shirt or dress.
