Diet and exercise may look good on paper, but sometimes it just doesn’t work for all of us. If you’re having trouble losing weight with proper diet and exercise, then plastic surgery may be your best option. Consider this overview on the different lifts and tucks that provide a slimmer and tighter physique.


Liposuction is an extremely popular plastic surgery technique designed to remove localized fat deposits from your hips, buttocks, thighs, calves, arms, and ankles. While it may take a few weeks for the swelling to fully dissipate, your new body contours and enhanced image should continue to improve over time.

Tummy Tuck

Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is used to firm and tighten excessive abdominal skin for a smoother profile. After removing excessive fat and skin tissue, your plastic surgeon will repair weakened abdominal muscles before closing the incisions and wrapping your midsection in a compression bandage.

Thigh Lift

Your thighs are often the most difficult areas to tone and tighten. Luckily, a thigh lift offers a permanent solution for individuals with excessive fat tissue or sagging thigh skin. A thigh lift is usually done on an outpatient basis under general anesthetic and, in many cases, patients are able to return to work within 1-2 weeks following the procedure.

Lower Body Lift

Individuals who have undergone gastric bypass or lost an extreme amount of weight are often left with sagging skin around the circumference of their midsection. A lower body lift is a great procedure for post-weight loss patients, as it offers the most dramatic results for removing excessive body tissue.

Laser Slimming

Zerona laser slimming is a non-invasive procedure designed to painlessly remove fat tissue to reshape your body. Unlike other plastic surgery procedures, Zerona allows patients to continue their daily activities without restriction. Lose anywhere from 3-9 inches from your tummy, hips, back, thighs, buttocks, chin, neck, or arms with this innovative laser procedure.
