Liposuction, also referred to as lipoplasty, is performed to remove excess fat and alter the contour, shape, and size of various areas of the body. Liposuction is not meant to be a weight loss procedure, but rather a means of eliminating pockets of fat from the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, upper arms, and facial area that do not respond to exercise or a healthy diet.

Abdominoplasty, more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is performed to improve the shape, contour, firmness, and appearance of the abdominal region. Abdominoplasty is not meant to be a weight loss procedure, but rather a means of eliminating sagging abdominal skin and abdominal fat that does not respond to exercise or a healthy diet. Some patients may choose to undergo the procedure to eliminate sagging skin and stretch marks after pregnancy or significant weight loss.
A buttock lift, also referred to as a gluteoplasty, is performed to improve the shape, firmness, and appearance of the buttocks and thighs. Not meant as a weight loss procedure, a buttock lift will help eliminate excess skin and fat deposits that do not respond to exercise or a healthy diet. A buttock lift is sometimes performed in combination with a tummy tuck or liposuction in order to achieve a comprehensive enhancement of a patient’s overall contours.
Brachioplasty, more commonly referred to as an arm lift, is performed to improve the shape, firmness, and appearance of the upper arm. An arm lift will help eliminate sagging skin and fat deposits on the upper arm that do not respond to exercise or a healthy diet. Brachioplasty is sometimes performed in combination with liposuction or abdominoplasty in order to achieve a more comprehensive enhancement.
Often times, exercise alone cannot sculpt the bottom or waist to an individual’s desired contour. Strenuous workouts such as squats and lunges can be effective but this is not always the case. For this reason, we offer patients the option of sculpting their perfect bottom using a popular surgical procedure known as the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL).
A Reverse Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), as the name suggests, reverses the direction of tension applied to the abdomen at the time of surgery, pulling excess skin upwards (towards the head) rather than downwards, towards the feet. Reverse Tummy Tuck surgery is indicated for patients who are bothered with excess skin on the upper abdomen, sometimes years after a full abdominoplasty, or following a generous weight loss.
