Body Contouring

Board Certified Female Plastic Surgeon Serving Las Vegas, Henderson and Nearby Areas of Nevada


While body contouring procedures offer impressive and long-lasting results, they aren’t magic. It’s important to know that these surgeries won’t prevent you from gaining weight in the future, which is something that can diminish your cosmetic outcome. You’ll need to follow a healthy lifestyle to maintain your sculpted new look.

Fortunately, living well doesn’t have to be difficult. The tips below can help you keep a stable weight and general level of fitness after liposuction, tummy tuck, or a similar surgery.

It’s not unusual for individuals considering a tummy tuck to have excess fat or sagging skin above the pubic bone (medically known as the mons pubis). Abdominoplasty is designed to remove fat and tighten loose skin in the abdominal area, which can have a positive impact on the appearance of the mons pubis. However, if the pubic area is more than minimally saggy, a tummy tuck won’t help enough.

Man and woman kissing; resuming intimacy after plastic surgeryThis is one of the most common questions I get asked during a preoperative consultation. Sometimes it is the patient asking, sometimes the spouse. It gets interesting when the spouse asks, and the patient gives me a look with hidden meaning or vice versa. Some patients in troubled relationships have asked me to tell their spouses that sex is off-limits for 6 months or longer.
