Liposuction, also called lipoplasty or body contouring, is a safe and popular cosmetic procedure that can quickly transform the shape of your body. Liposuction uses a suction technique to remove fat beneath the skin of the stomach, buttocks, hips, thighs and other areas.  At Commonwealth Plastic Surgery, we use a variety of liposuction techniques to help men and women trim and sculpt their bodies.

Liposuction may be a good option if you:

  • Have too much body fat in specific spots
  • Would like a more defined shape in certain areas
  • If you have good skin elasticity
  • Are not very overweight

Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a cosmetic surgical procedure to tighten and tone your abdomen by removing excess skin and fat, giving the stomach a flatter appearance. The procedure can also involve tightening up the abdominal muscles. Commonwealth Plastic Surgery will educate you about the benefits of a tummy tuck, and help you determine if it is the best procedure for you.

Tummy tuck is appropriate if you:

  • Have stretched or weak abdominal muscles following childbirth or pelvic surgery
  • Would like stretch marks removed from the lower abdomen
  • Have lost a large amount of weight
  • Have excess skin that does not respond to abdominal exercise or diet
  • Want to boost your self-image and fit better into clothes

Body Lift
You’ve accomplished your weight loss goal, but now have excess skin that sags or causes uncomfortable skin irritation. Commonwealth Plastic Surgery has the solution with upper-body lifts to tighten and tone the arms, back and breast areas. We also perform lower-body lifts that contour the buttocks, thighs, hips and abdomen.

Consider an upper or lower body lift if you have:

  • Lost a large amount of weight
  • Excess skin following pregnancy
  • Sagging skin around your arms, chest or waist
  • A “spare tire,” “back rolls” or “back fat”
  • Overhanging skin that restricts mobility or causes skin problems
  • Insecurity or low self-esteem because of your excess skin

Buttock Lift
A buttock lift can make a difference in the gluteal area when aging or weight loss has resulted in excess skin. This surgical procedure removes skin and fat often through a combination of surgery and liposuction. Commonwealth Plastic Surgery is specially trained in both of these surgical techniques.

A buttock lift can help if you have:

  • Lost a large amount of weight
  • Have loose and overhanging or sagging skin
  • Buttock fat that needs reshaping for a more desirable contour
  • Overhanging skin that restricts mobility or causes skin problems
  • A poor self-image because of your buttocks
