Body-Contouring Procedures

When combined with healthy diet and regular exercise, plastic surgery can can help you achieve a slimmer, more toned body shape. Our team of plastic surgeons regularly performs body-contouring procedures that remove excess fat and trim away loose skin. View the links below for more information on these services.


Arm lift

An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits in the upper arm. The aging process or significant changes in body weight can leave a person with sagging upper arms and excess skin. If you want to tighten the skin of this area, ask your surgeon about brachioplasty.

Body contouring

Surgical procedures have been designed to resolve problems of excess skin that occur after weight loss. If you have lost a massive amount of weight and find that you have problems with excess skin and sagging tissue in one or many body areas, ask your plastic surgeon about body contouring after major weight loss.

Body lift

A complete lower body lift treats sagging buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and outer thighs in one procedure or in staged procedures. Incision patterns vary, and may include a circumferential incision around the body to remove the "belt" of excess skin and fat.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck.

Male breast reduction

For men who feel self-conscious about excess breast tissue, breast-reduction surgery can help. The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the chest area, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured.

Thigh lift

Improving contours of the inner or outer thigh can be achieved with a thigh lift. This may require an incision extending from the groin around the hip. Through these incisions your plastic surgeon will tighten tissues for a smoother, better toned thigh.

Tumescent technique

The tumescent (or superwet) liposuction technique is the gold standard among plastic surgeons today. By saturating the fat with a tumescent solution, your plastic surgeon can provide superior aesthetic results and a more tolerable liposuction procedure. However, the tumescent technique should only be performed by a qualified doctor, such as a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Tummy tuck

Abdominoplasty, known more commonly as a tummy tuck, is a major surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall.

Varicose veins

The treatment of varicose veins is an important procedure, both for pain relief, prevention of more serious conditions and aesthetic improvement.
