Tummy Tuck

Many people desire a flat, and toned-appearing abdomen. However, despite diet and exercise, such goals sometimes are not achieved. Following weight changes, aging, pregnancy, or prior surgery, the abdomen may not have the contoured look you desire – even after attempts at diet and exercise. A Tummy Tuck, or Abdominoplasty surgery, may help you achieve a firmer and sleeker abdomen. Further, many stretch marks of the lower abdomen are often removed during a tummy-tuck surgery – particularly those below the level of your belly button (umbilicus). More..

Brazilian Butt Lift

Many patients desire rounder, fuller, shapelier buttocks. However, despite exercise and weight changes, they may not be able to achieve the figure they desire. Buttock augmentation using one’s own fat has become a very popular option for this. Known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, this is a procedure where liposuction is used to carefully and selectively remove fat from certain areas of the body, and then this fat is purified and carefully injected into the buttocks. The injected fat can permanently sculpt and enlarge the buttocks. More..



Liposuction is a surgical procedure done to remove areas of stubborn fat – that often don’t seem to go away with diet and exercise. By using small openings in the skin, an instrument called a cannula is inserted into the fat – and the fat is removed. Liposuction is used to help sculpt and contour the body. Common areas for treatment are the abdomen, waist/“love handles,” lower back, upper back, and bra area, etc.

As liposuction is a treatment for unwanted fat, it is not a treatment for loose or hanging skin. If someone has loose or excess skin, liposuction may be combined with an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) to overall contour your midsection. Also, for those desiring fuller buttocks or curvier hips, liposuction is the first step taken for fat removal. It is this removed fat that can then be transferred into the buttocks and hips for enhanced contouring.

Mommy Makeover

A Mommy-Makeover is the term used to describe various surgeries that are done to reverse some of the changes sometimes seen after pregnancy. Most often, they are a combination of breast and body procedures. The specific combinations depend on your own body and your goals from surgery. This may include a breast augmentation, breast lift, a combination of breast augmentation and lift, or perhaps a breast reduction. The body portion may be an abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck), liposuction, fat transfer to the buttocks or hips, or a combination of these procedures. This one term is often used to describe many different possible combinations.
