Body contouring procedures

Dr. Hyman offers the following procedures to bring you a more balanced, sculpted figure:

Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck

This procedure tightens and sculpts the abdominal area. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) can effectively remove excess fat and skin to create a flat, toned, youthful abdomen with bulges, excess skin, love handles, and other concerns resolved. The underlying muscle structure is tightened to restore the firm, fit look of youth and health. Dr. Hyman routinely performs liposuction of the flanks and inner thighs in conjunction with his tummy tuck surgeries.

This versatile procedure can remove stubborn pockets of unwanted fat from almost any part of the body with extreme precision through small punctures. No incisions are necessary. The fat cells, once removed, are gone forever, leaving your thighs, buttocks, tummy, upper arms, back, neck, or other areas slimmer and sculpted.

This comprehensive combination procedure can encompass a variety of surgical solutions to address several post-baby problems, such as loose or split abdominal muscles, sagging breasts, stretch marks, excess skin, and unwanted pockets of fat.

Butt Lift & Brazilian Butt Lift

It can be frustrating to successfully lose a great amount of weight and be left with excess skin that doesn’t snap back around the muscles. If you have achieved significant weight loss, whether from bariatric surgery or dieting and exercise, you may find yourself with excess skin hanging from your tummy, arms, inner thighs, buttocks, and breasts. With a body lift, Dr. Hyman can create a smooth, attractive, firm, natural-looking body contour. Like all body contouring procedures, a body lift is not weight loss surgery. Ideal candidates for this procedure have already reached a stable weight and are ready for the final phase of the transformation.

Arm lift 

Age and weight fluctuations can cause the skin on your upper arms to become loose, saggy, and droopy. An arm lift, or Brachioplasty, is designed to create firmer, sculpted, more attractive upper arms. Dr. Hyman has also published numerous peer-reviewed papers and cosmetic surgery textbooks on the “minimal incision Brachioplasty”. 

Thigh lift

While the outer thighs can be effectively addressed with a body lift, the inner thighs often need to be treated separately. Thigh lifts are intended for patients who have achieved and maintained a stable, healthy weight and suffer from excess skin in the inner thigh area.

Tattoo removal

Laser tattoo removal can be ineffective, costly, and time-consuming. That’s why Dr. Hyman offers only excision tattoo removal. This technique can only be utilized when the tattoo is small and in an area with loose skin. This technique leaves a scar in the place of the original tattoo. By surgically removing the area of skin that is tattooed, Dr. Hyman can free you of an unwanted tattoo quickly and completely.
