Comprehensive Body Contouring for a Natural Look
Body contouring procedures such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, and body lift are used to tighten and contour specific areas of the body. These procedures are especially beneficial to patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and who are left with loose skin and stubborn pockets of fat that do not improve through diet and exercise. Dr. Goldberg has extensive experience in performing body contouring procedures, and his eye for symmetry allows him to achieve a naturally balanced appearance. Body contouring can often be combined with other procedures, such as breast lift, for a more comprehensive transformation.
Dr. Goldberg utilizes the most current and safe techniques for liposuction. Our new Microaire PAL (power assisted liposuction) is a most efficient, safe technique. No laser or heat probes are needed and high volumes are easily possible with graftable living fat aspirates.
Dr. Goldberg uses several abdominoplasty methods to contour the abdominal area, depending on body type and the patient’s goals.
For patients who have strong abdominal muscles and require only a moderate amount of tissue reduction, liposuction may be used to flatten and shape the abdominal area.
Mini Tummy Tuck with Liposuction
For patients who are lean but have damaged skin, loose skin, or scars from a cesarean section, a mini tummy tuck with liposuction is often the best method of improving the appearance.
A full abdominoplasty is best for patients with excessive loose skin and a modest amount of excess fat. It is also the best method for women with stretched skin and muscles from pregnancy, and those who have scars from cesarean sections. The full abdominoplasty allows Dr. Goldberg to tighten the underlying muscles, raise the belly button, and remove excess skin in a single procedure.
Dr. Goldberg uses a combination of plastic surgery techniques to reduce excess fat and remove excess skin from the body. Body lift procedures are especially helpful for patients who have lost a considerable amount of weight, which often results in loose, sagging skin, as well as for patients who have lost skin elasticity due to the natural aging process. Liposuction is often used during these body lift procedures to reduce stubborn pockets of fat and to enhance contours.
Brachioplasty, or arm lift, reduces excess fat and skin in the upper arm area. Dr. Goldberg will make an incision along the underside of the upper arm and remove excess skin. Liposuction techniques may also be used to further enhance the natural curves of the arm.
Thighplasty, or thigh lift, tightens and contours the upper thigh area. Dr. Goldberg can also use thigh lift surgical techniques and liposuction to target specific areas of the thigh or contour the entire upper leg area.
Full Body Lift
Dr. Goldberg can perform a full body lift for patients who have lost skin elasticity throughout the body. This procedure tightens the breasts, abdomen, thighs, and arms, all through one procedure. Because of the extent of the surgery, patients should be prepared for a considerable recovery period.

Daunting as it is, it remains the patient’s responsibility to learn about a surgeon’s background, skills and reputation, You should feel welcome to ask important questions and not be intimidated by flashy advertisements or aggressive marketing tactics. During your consultation you are interviewing the doctor and we know it. Ask him or her to clarify their training and board certification. Get a sense of their skills, results and reputation. In addition to looking at photographs ask to speak to former patients, and find hospital or surgery center nurses to give your some inside information.
