 Arm Lift

The arm lift involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the upper arms, often with a combined approach of liposuction and surgical excision.

 Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty is used to target excess abdomen tissue including skin and fat that accumulates after pregnancy and after major weight loss. The tummy tuck gives individuals who have completed the work of losing weight the final step they need to transition into their new shape.

 Body Contouring

Body contouring involves any one of a number of cosmetic procedures all aimed at correct contour issues in the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms. Procedures that may be selected with the goal of regaining contour include the tummy tuck, panniculectomy, arm, body, neck and thigh lift, and gluteoplasty.


Though it cannot be used as a means of weight loss, liposuction is a surgical means of removing selective pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. It can be performed almost anywhere on the body including the breasts, arms, midsection, thighs, face, back, chest, neck, knees and ankles.

 Body Lift

Also known as the belt lipectomy, the body lift involves streamlining and reforming the midsection in order to gain the natural lines and contour of the abdomen and waist.

 Mommy Makeover

Rather than one specific procedure, a mommy makeover is actually a combination of surgeries that can sometimes be combined to help you restore your body following childbirth.

 Butt Lift

During a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, fat will be grafted from other areas on your body through liposuction and injected carefully into your buttocks to refine and enhance its shape.


Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to correct asymmetry or enlargement of the labia, conditions which may cause hygiene, appearance and clothing issues for women.

 Male Breast Reduction

Male breast reduction surgery, which is used to correct and remove breast tissue on the male chest, combines skin and tissue tightening techniques to create a flatter chest.

 Pectoral Implants

Pectoral implants are firm silicone prostheses that can be implanted to enhance the chest area in men.

 Calf Augmentation

Calf augmentation is an implant-based cosmetic procedure that enhances the shape of the lower leg. It can have reconstructive benefits, too, for those who have suffered some kind of trauma or experience a shrunken lower leg.

 Thigh Lift

As one of many body-contouring procedures, the thigh lift is used to resolve excess skin or fat that results after massive weight loss. This procedure can satisfy your desire to reduce the circumference of your thighs as well as reduce sagging skin.
