As I tell my patients, we’re really in a wonderful time in terms of body contouring. As well as plastic surgery, I can now offer many procedures that are non-surgical and have minimal downtime, if any, that provide excellent results.

Many ways to get a better, sexier shape
One example of a relatively new non-surgical, non-invasive body contouring treatment is CoolSculpting, in which the patient is wide awake and a machine is attached to the area of the body where he or she wants to get rid of unwanted fat. The machine freezes the fat and then over the next few months, slowly flushes these destroyed fat cells from the body.
EmSculpting is another non-surgical body contouring procedure that uses a machine, in this case to tighten a person’s abdominal and/or butt muscles and melt away some of the fat. This treatment is really for patients who are in good shape who are just looking for some extra definition of muscle. They’re trying to get that 6-pack but don’t have time to go to the gym all the time. They’re not looking for major body contouring changes but want, say, a buttock lift with some enhancement to their gluteus muscles.
In addition, I offer fat-removing, body shaping procedures like liposuction which is surgical but can now be performed by using tiny little eighth-of-an-inch incisions and which only causes a little bruising.
Of course, I also offer more involved surgical procedures such as breast lifts, tummy tucks, Mommy Makeovers and lower body lifts where I’m removing fat, tightening muscle and removing skin at the same time.
It’s really a great time for patients
When my patients come into my office, I try and find a way to meet their expectations, to deliver what they want, either non-surgical or surgical, so I can provide the results they’re looking for without having to go through the type of big operation we had to do in the past. The new technology has really added a lot to our ability as plastic surgeons to deliver highly successful results to our patients without resorting to major surgery.
