Facial Contouring

Facial Contouring and Multi-Vector Lifts are highly effective in dramatically reducing the signs of aging. By lifting and firming loose, droopy and lined skin, a facial contouring procedure will restore the smoother contours of your younger self. During the procedure, your facial tissues are re-positioned to achieve the natural-looking curves and contours of a more youthful appearance. The goal is to “set back the clock” with complete facial harmony for renewed self-confidence and approach to life.

Features to consider are your brows, cheeks, jawline, neck, skin, volume, fullness, lines and wrinkles. Whether you concerns require minimal intervention for subtle rejuvenation to prevent signs of aging before they become readily apparent, or a more comprehensive approach to address more significant signs of aging, we can create a customized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and goals.

Neck Contouring

Neck Contouring procedures are designed to create a more defined jawline, reduce excess fat and tighten loose skin around the neck. Neck Lifts are most often performed in conjunction with Face Lifts for more comprehensive and harmonious facial rejuvenation results. Liposuction and Kybella procedures remove excessive fat under the chin for smoother, more contoured appearance

Eyelid Lift

Droopy, baggy eyes can make you appear old and tired. As we age, the skin and supporting muscles around your eyes can stretch and weaken, causing the upper lid to droop the lower lid to look baggy and puffy. Eyelid Surgery removes the excess skin and fat deposits around the eyes to restore a brighter, more refreshed and youthful appearance. Many patients only have concerns about their upper or their lower eyelids, and some wish to address both. Eyelid Surgery, also called Blepharoplasty, can make a dramatic improvement in your overall appearance without extensive incisions or downtime.


The nose is a prominent feature of the face. Concerns about the size and shape of the nose are common and can dramatically impact how you view your appearance. People also choose rhinoplasty to correct breathing difficulties or a nose injury.

A Breast Lift with Augmentation combines both procedures to help you achieve increased volume, enhanced contour, and a more youthful shape. During your consultation, your surgeon will advise you on whether a breast augmentation/lift is right for you.

Liposuction removes fat permanently to create appealing contours. Areas most commonly targeted are the abdomen, hips, flanks, thighs, buttocks, knees, arms, and back. During the procedure, a thin tube is inserted through small incisions into the fat targeted to be removed. The surgeon removes fat through the tube, creating the desired contours. Liposuction is most appropriate for someone close to his or her ideal weight, but has bothersome accumulations of fat which are unresponsive to weight loss and exercise.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) will dramatically improve a protruding and sagging stomach. Women often seek this procedure after childbirth or rapid weight loss. During the procedure, the abdominal muscles are tightened and excess, sagging skin is removed. Once you have a flatter, tighter, slimmer waist and better overall body proportion, clothes will fit better and you’ll feel amazing.

Body Lift

Some women need more than a tummy tuck after dramatic weigh loss. A complete lower body lift treats the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs – all in one surgery. This procedure removes unwanted skin and fat, and tightens underlying muscles, to provide a more firm, smooth shape and better contours.

Mommy Makeover

As most moms know, pregnancy can have a huge and lasting effect on the body. Common concerns are sagging breasts and stomach. A mommy makeover is a set of procedures selected to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body. They usually include a breast lift, breast augmentation or breast augmentation/lift, as well as a tummy tuck and sometimes liposuction.

Arm Lift

Natural aging and fluctuations in weight can make the upper arms look loose and saggy. An arm lift reduces the flabby excess skin and sculpts the arms to look more youthful and toned.

Thigh Lift

The upper thigh is often a problem spot for unattractive bulges and dimpled skin. A thigh lift will reshape the inner and/or outer thighs by removing excess fat and skin to create a tighter, smoother, more toned appearance.

Post Weight Loss

After achieving significant weight loss, many women are left with an abundance of excess skin, and sometimes stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Multiple parts of the body can be addressed, including the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, back, breasts, face, and upper arms. During the procedure, excess skin and fat are removed to create a firmer, more attractive body contour.

Genital Aesthetics

Genital Aesthetics surgeries address the appearance of the female genitalia, including the labia minora, labia majora, clitoral hood and perineum. These concerns – which are often inherited or caused by childbirth, aging or weight fluctuations – can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, making it difficult to wear bathing suits and experience sexual satisfaction.


CoolSculpting is relatively recent, groundbreaking technology that allows us to permanently remove fat and sculpt your body with no surgery or recovery time. This treatment literally freezes away unwanted pockets of fat which is then naturally rid from your body, without harming or hurting your skin. A variety of applicators allows us to treat a number of areas, including your abdomen, hips, flanks, inner and outer thighs, bra rolls and back. Treatments take approximately one hour.
