The abdomen is the first place that extra weight and fat settles in the body. Years of weight fluctuation, pregnancies, and even genetic factors can impact the appearance of your abdomen.  A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin and creates a defined midsection that is smoother and firmer than ever before.

Liposuction is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure in the world. The goal is to eliminate stubborn fat deposits that tend to settle in areas such as the neck, arms, abdomen, things, and buttocks. Unfortunately, exercise and diet don’t always address these problem areas.  Traditional liposuction and high definition liposuction allows the cosmetic surgeon to sculpt your body to get rid of that fat excess and improve your overall tone.

Abdominal Etching

Abdominal etching is a variation of liposuction used to create the illusion of six-pack abs on males, and athletic definition on females.  During the procedure, thin cannulas are inserted into the body, dislodging fat deposits that get suctioned out. Abdominal etching differs from liposuction in that small amounts of fat are left behind in specific areas to imitate muscle fullness and definition.

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian Butt Lift is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures right now.  This procedure accomplishes two things: it gets rid of unwanted fat deposits and those fat cells are then used to sculpt the buttocks to increase volume and projection.

Male Breast Reduction ( Gynecomastia)

Gynecomastia (oversized male breasts) is a very common condition in men and can result in terrible embarrassment. Many men will try to hide it with thick shirts, avoid bare chest activities, and withdraw from public exposure.

Pectoral Implants

Unlike breast implants, pectoral implants are made out of harder silicone and do not rupture. The implant is usually placed through a small incision in the armpit and placed below the pectoralis major muscle. The procedure takes 1-2 hours under general anesthesia or moderate sedation.

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Body lifting procedures such as an arm lift are common after massive weight loss or after large fluctuations in weight. Some patients may qualify for arm liposuction alone if their skin tone is great.  However, if the skin quality is poor due moderate to severe skin laxity and the presence of stretch marks, the patient may be a candidate for an arm lift procedure.
