BODY Contouring


Following weight reduction surgery, or any substantial amount of weight loss, the skin and the tissues often lack elasticity and cannot conform to the reduced body size. As a result, skin that has been severely stretched now is unsupported:


•  Upper arms may sag and appear loose and full

•  Breasts may flatten and hang with nipples pointed downward

•  Abdominal area may extend around the sides and into the lower back area

•  Buttocks, groin and thighs can sag and cause hanging pockets of skin


Surgical body contouring following major weight loss improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin. The result is a more normal appearance to the body, with smoother contours. This is, in essence, the final phase of your total weight loss experience.



Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness. Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately, enhancing your self image.


Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:


•  Thighs • Hips and buttocks

•  Abdomen and waist

•  Upper arms • Back

•  Inner knee • Chest area

•  Cheeks, chin and neck

•  Calves and ankles


In some cases, liposuction i performed alone, in other cases it is used with plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, breast reduction or a tummy tuck.



A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop and abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:


•  Pregnancy

•  Aging

•  Significant fluctuations in weight

•  Heredity

•  Prior surgery


Also know as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firm.



A well-toned body with smooth contours often is a sign of fitness achieved by healthy diet and exercise. But exercise cannot always achieve desired results for people who have loose, sagging skin and uneven contours. Aging, sun damage, pregnancy and significant fluctuations in weight as well as genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity and can result in sagging of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.


If you desire a firmer, more youthful-looking body contour, then a surgical body lift may help achieve your goals. It improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin. Excess sagging fat and skin are removed to treat conditions caused in part by poor tissue elasticity. In addition, the procedure(s) can improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface, commonly known as cellulite.

SCAR Revision


Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. Even a wound that heals well can result in a scar that affects your appearance. Scars may be raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location.


Your treatment options may vary based on the type and degree of scarring and can include:


•  Simple topical treatments

•  Minimally invasive procedures

•  Surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure


Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture.
