Ask Dr. O'Brien




Many people are unable to lose enough weight to achieve the look they desire. Even with a healthy diet and active exercise program, this can be very difficult. Aging, child birth, loose skin, and other factors can often get in the way. Fortunately, body contouring surgery can help.

Body contouring surgery includes several different body sculpting techniques that help to reshape almost any area of the body. Through body contouring surgery, patients can effectively eliminate excess fat and skin that are unresponsive to diet and exercise.



The most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the U.S., liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat that has not responded to diet and exercise. Using only a few tiny incisions, your surgeon can target stubborn fat deposits and permanently remove fat cells using a stainless steel suction tube called a cannula. Liposuction is a precise procedure that allows your surgeon to re-sculpt specific areas of the body, including the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, chin, cheeks, neck, and upper arms. Dr. O'Brien utilizes VASER® Liposelection, which is an U.S. liposelection procedure. He has been doing ultrasonic liposelection since 1995.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Often after weight loss or pregnancy, excess skin and stretch marks can deform the once flat and tight abdomen. And despite proper diet and exercise, loose skin still remains. Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, helps to flatten and shape the abdomen and waist by removing excess fat and skin and tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall.

The best candidates for a tummy tuck are men or women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by large pockets of fat or loose abdominal skin. The abdominoplasty procedure can be customized to each patient’s specific goals and

may include liposuction or be combined with other body lift procedures. With a balanced diet and regular exercise, results are long-lasting.

Body Lift

Exercise and a healthy diet cannot always achieve the desired results for people who have loose, sagging skin and uneven contours. Aging, sun damage, cellulite, genetics, pregnancy, and significant fluctuations in weight may contribute to poor tissue elasticity and can result in sagging of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. A body lift can help to achieve a firmer, more youthful-looking body.

A body lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, is performed to remove excess skin or fatty tissue on the body that results from age or extreme weight loss. More extensive than a tummy tuck, the body lift is performed on the lower torso and upper legs and re-sculpts the abdomen, hips, back, buttocks and outer thighs.

Body Implants

Body implants are used to add shape and volume to areas that are disproportional to the rest of the body. Although exercise is the best way to attain a lean, toned physique, many patients undergoing body contouring find that strength training alone cannot improve the shape of certain body parts. Body implants can help shape these stubborn areas, allowing you to achieve a more defined contour.

Body implants can be used to enhance the appearance of the buttocks, pectorals, biceps, or calves. The implants are typically made from a firm, rubberized, FDA-approved silicone gel and are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. As with other body contouring surgeries, body implant surgery may be combined with other body contouring procedures in order to achieve optimal results.

Dr. O'Brien believes this promotes a less painful and faster recovery.
