The weather is turning, and winter has become spring. With warm weather comes lighter clothing and those all too revealing bikinis and summer wear. The days of layers and thick sweaters are over, and it’s time to show more of yourself. But are you ready?

Winter is a time when many of us gain a few pounds. It’s almost natural because we can easily cover them up. But now fashion dictates that we show more, not less. We diet and rush to the gym, trying to melt away those extra pounds that sneak up on us during the winter months. But we realize it was easier to find those extra inches than it is to lose them.

Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Montante, offers body contouring procedures designed to transform your figure before the summer fun starts. Although many patients may require surgical correction, there is a non-surgical option for those who need less help.


This time-tested body contouring procedure is the most popular cosmetic surgery of all time. It literally suctions the fat away, never to return. Liposuction is suitable to eliminate fat bulges in multiple areas, including the neck, breasts, tummy, back, and thighs. Combined with other body contouring procedures like a breast lift, it can help you toward that shapely body you can’t wait to show off.

Tummy Tuck

With the belly being a trouble area for women and men, a tummy tuck does more than eliminating excess fat. It reinforces the abdominal wall and removes excess, sagging skin. In addition to the traditional version of this body sculpting procedure, the less invasive mini-tummy tuck focuses on removing excess tissues in the area below the belly button around the bikini line.

You will enjoy results that include a taut tummy with a smoother skin surface with fewer stretch marks. You will also get to wear those outfits that you’ve been dreaming about wearing since the Fall. Many women combine a tummy tuck with other procedures, like breast augmentation, for a mommy makeover.


If you want to abolish fat without surgery, but diet and exercise are not enough, CoolSculpting may be the treatment for you. This revolutionary technology virtually freezes away the fat without any incisions or downtime. With comfortable sessions where you can read a book or stream a video, you can eliminate those pesky fat pads in areas including the tummy, thighs, and upper arm.
