Body Contouring Surgery

Dr. Grossman offers body contouring with liposuction as well as abdominoplasty. Both procedures can improve the contour or shape of the body. Ideally, patients should be close to their ideal body weight prior to surgery. Many people are candidates for these procedures including individuals who have lost weight, after child birth, or just looking to minimize the appearance of fat in certain areas of the body. We also offer SculpSure treatments for clients who follow a regular diet and exercise routine, but have areas of stubborn fat around the abdomen.  Call us to schedule a consultation today and find out what options you have for improving the shape and appearance of your body.

Liposuction and Body Contouring

Liposuction removes excess fat in various areas of the body such as the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, and back. Other areas such as the back, buttocks and arms may also treated with small area body contouring. This procedure is performed on patients who want to flatten or reduce the appearance of fatty areas on the body. Liposuction is performed in our out-patient surgery center. The time of the procedure varies depending on the area of the body and how much is to be removed. The patient can return home on the same day as the procedure. Recovery time varies per patient and per area, however we estimate a 2-4 week recovery and up to 4-6 weeks for heavy lifting and exercise.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) 

An abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” removes excess skin and tissue in the abdominal area, flattening the appearance of the belly. An abdominoplasty is often performed after weight loss and/or pregnancy and may require some degree of liposuction for contouring. Many people are candidates for this procedure but it is important to set goals with your surgeon before proceeding with surgery.  Abdominoplasties are performed in our out-patient surgery center and take between 3-4 hours. The patient can return home the same day. Recovery time after abdominoplasty varies for each patient but is usually 4-6 weeks.

Looking For a Non-Surgical Option?

If you have stubborn love handles and excess fat on the abdomen, we offer a non-surgical option for body contouring. SculpSure laser fat reduction is ideal for patients who have been maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, but aren’t seeing the desired results.
