Restore and rejuvenate the shape of your body


Body contouring surgery is a safe and effective procedure that combats the unfavorable effects that age, gravity or weight loss have had on your body. It will get you looking and feeling your best. For the many men and women who are unhappy with the shape of their figure or have excess skin on their arms, legs, stomach, or other parts of the body, body contouring surgery can provide the firm, shapely figure they desire.



Body contouring after weight loss for a new you


Body contouring is especially effective for patients who have lost significant weight and have excess skin, or an abdominal apron which requires surgical removal. Our body contouring procedure provides you with a beautiful new body silhouette. If you have recently lost weight and now have excess skin, or you are simply unhappy with the lack of skin tautness on your arms, legs, or chest, a body lift procedure will provide you with a beautiful new body.

What is body contouring?


Depending on your personal beauty plan, your body contouring procedure may include:




For many patients, their personal body contouring plan may include an aerobic exercise program for four weeks prior to the surgery in order to ensure a quick recovery and end result that meets their goals. Dr. David Halpern may remove excess fat that exists in problem regions, then remove surplus skin that is no longer needed. Removing this extra skin, especially abdominal aprons which appear in the stomach region, can be extremely important. In addition to being unsightly, they can pose chronic health and hygiene problems. A body lift ensures you have the firm, shapely, well-proportioned body of your dreams.

How long is my recovery time from a body contouring procedure?


As with any surgery, recovery time varies from patient to patient and depends on your overall health and adherence to our post-operative instructions. In addition, your recovery time from a body lift or body contouring surgery can vary widely depending on the scope and complexity of your procedure, however, most recovery times range from one to four weeks. Dr. David Halpern will advise you of the necessary steps and precautions to take before and after your body contouring surgery to ensure your health and safety.
