Body Contouring

Lifestyle changes may only go so far toward achieving your desired physical shape. Body contouring with plastic surgery however, can transform virtually any area to achieve the look you want.

Body Contouring, NYC

If past pregnancies, significant weight loss, advancing age or simple genetics have led to a growing dissatisfaction with the shape and appearance of your body, you are not alone. Sagging skin and fat pockets that resist even the most rigorous diet and exercise programs can result in real frustration for many.

Fortunately, Dr. Preminger offers several body contouring procedures able to enhance your existing assets and eliminate trouble spots safely and effectively.

Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty)

If you are among those who long for a flatter, tighter stomach area, a tummy tuck may be an ideal solution. Also known as abdominoplasty, this cosmetic surgery serves to remove excessive fat and skin while also reestablishing separated or weakened muscles that are a typical result of pregnancy. Because fat deposits in this region are often diet and exercise-resistant, abdominoplasty can be a wonderful way to eliminate the so-called “spare tire” or skin apron that can be so troubling to so many.


Liposuction is an extremely popular option for treating stubborn pockets of fat that have not responded positively to exercise or dietary changes. Patients electing this procedure will have bulging or protruding fat deposits removed and suctioned out of the body.

Liposuction is extremely effective for removing extra fat in the waist, buttocks, hips, thighs and even underneath the chin. Male patients suffering from gynecomastia, or breast growth, can also greatly benefit from the procedure.

Mommy Makeover

Increasing numbers of women are taking decisive action to regain their pre-pregnancy figures and many are choosing the “mommy makeover” as means to achieve their goals. A mommy makeover typically encompasses procedures intended to rejuvenate the breasts as well as the abdominal region, but it may also include dermal fillers to correct wrinkles and lost volume.

Steps are taken to address breast deflation and sagging and also to ameliorate bulging and stretch marks in the patient’s midsection. Some cosmetic surgery procedures can be completed in one stage, while others may require multiple sessions, depending on the outcome desired.

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Individuals who have undergone substantial weight loss or who have a hereditary disposition may suffer from excessive amounts of fat and skin surrounding their upper arms (“bat wings”). Such patients can benefit tremendously from brachioplasty, often referred to simply as an arm lift.

Dr. Preminger works to eliminate excess skin hanging from beneath the underarm and then shapes and contours the arm itself from the armpit down to the elbow. This produces a sleek, toned appearance of which anyone would be proud.

Thigh Lift

Often the consequence of aging, genetics or significant weight loss, accumulations of excess skin and fat around the thighs can be extremely problematic to many. A thigh lift procedure can effectively address such issues, utilizing liposuction to eliminate fat deposits before the remaining loose skin is reduced in volume and repositioned. Ideally, this procedure is done in such a way as to minimize scarring in areas which tend to be exposed while wearing a bathing suit.

Thigh Lift & Lower Body Lift

A total lower body lift helps patients eliminate excess fat and skin in the back, thighs, buttocks, flanks and abdomen, and it represents a more comprehensive approach to achieving a leaner, sleeker appearance. As with the other body contouring options, a lower body lift serves to turn back the clock and lessen the effects of aging, heredity and the aftermath of extreme amounts of weight loss.

The entire lower body can be lifted together if desired. For patients who care to target only the thighs, Dr. Preminger can perform a more simple thigh lift.

Other Procedures

This procedure is intended to change the shape and/or size of the labia, typically correcting asymmetries or making them smaller. Patients who choose labiaplasty often do so to boost their self-confidence and intimacy levels with a partner.
Brazilian Butt Lift
The rise in popularity of a more full buttocks has prompted more and more women to seek augmentation and lifting in this area. Dr. Preminger will review various options from fat transfer to implants as related to buttock augmentation procedures.

Manhattan Body Contouring

Many who have taken great pains to lose large amounts of weight through diet, exercise or bariatric surgery are greatly disheartened when their bodies do not look the way they always assumed they would after shedding so many pounds.

Those whose bodies are beginning to show the inevitable effects of motherhood and middle age may also achieve rewarding outcomes through liposuction, a tummy tuck, or a full mommy makeover. Taking the initiative to reclaim a more youthful appearance inevitably results in heightened self-esteem and greater personal satisfaction. The ability to feel beautiful each and every day is something all women deserve and Dr. Preminger is dedicated to helping you achieve this.
