We work with you to explore the options available to you, and will discuss any potential risks as well as the results you can expect.

After the surgery, our care team will manage your pain with medication and teach you how to care for yourself as you heal and recover.

Body Contouring Options

Abdominoplasty: This procedure is commonly known as a “tummy tuck.” Excess skin and fat are removed from around the abdomen. The procedure can include tightening the abdominal muscles or liposuction (fat removal).

Liposuction: This technique removes fat from any area of the body using catheters (small tubes) with suction.

Brachioplasty: This procedure is commonly known as an “arm lift.” Excess skin is removed from one or both arms.

Thigh or buttock lift: Excess skin and fat are removed from the inner thighs or buttocks.

Radiofrequency skin tightening: This non-invasive procedure uses energy waves to heat the dermis (the deep layer of your skin), stimulating collagen production. Radiofrequency skin tightening can be used for your neck, arms, legs or abdomen.

FDA-approved weight loss therapies: Our surgeons can discuss FDA-approved weight loss therapies, including the Obalon Balloon System, a swallowable balloon that facilitates weight loss by taking up space in your stomach so that you eat less.
