Body contouring surgery can reshape, tighten and rejuvenate almost any area, head to toe, creating a new, sleeker shapelier you. In some cases, traditional liposuction is recommended but with new innovations, it’s not always necessary. New non-invasive techniques including ultrasound and ground-breaking injectables are now available to contour specific body parts with excellent results. Common areas for body contouring include the neck, arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs. We always recommend an initial consultation to determine your goals and which body contouring procedures will best achieve these goals at the most affordable price.
Fat transfer is a method of using your own body fat to fill in unwanted facial creases or improve hollowing around the eyes, cheeks or temples caused by aging. Fat injections can improve acne scars, and augment certain features such as lips and cheeks. It may also be used to improve the look of the aging hand. Fat transfer is our favorite way to perform the "liquid face lift" because fat is the most pliable filler and is the same consistency as your own facial tissue.

CoolSculpting technology delivers precisely controlled cooling temperatures to the fat cells under the skin in targeted areas. The treated cells are frozen or crystallized so the body is triggered to naturally eliminate the dead cells, leaving you with a slimmer area.
The procedure takes about an hour total. Most people say that the treatment is so comfortable that they sit back and read a magazine, nap, or listen to music while it’s happening. After treatment, you can return to your regular activities. There is no downtime and it does not require garments like liposuction treatment.
You will see improvement over the next weeks and months. Some areas will require more than one treatment but this is often determined at the time of the consultation.
Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for the face that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. The FDA-cleared device used in the procedure utilizes the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin.Unlike lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside-in, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin, specifically targeting the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen lives.
