Sometimes, following a healthy diet and exercise routine are not enough to get rid of stubborn fat that has accumulated under the skin. In addition, pregnancy, massive weight loss or the natural aging process can leave individuals with sagging skin that has lost its elasticity and is unable to “bounce back” to a smaller size and shape. These same factors can also damage the underlying musculature and tissue structures, making it difficult, if not impossible, to restore muscle tone and to tighten the area of concern.
Fortunately, the experienced plastic surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Group offer a host of cosmetic surgery procedures designed to contour and rejuvenate multiple areas of the body. The following are examples of body cosmetic surgery procedures we offer to tighten, tone and / or rejuvenate our patients’ “problem areas.”
Also called “tummy tuck” surgery, abdominoplasty is an effective way to eliminate excess abdominal skin that has lost its elasticity and hangs off the midsection. During tummy tuck surgery, the plastic surgeon also repairs damaged abdominal muscles, for a flatter, firmer abdominal contour. He or she can also include liposuction as necessary to remove unwanted fat from the treatment area.
Plastic Surgery Group is unique in that Dr. R has pioneered the use of drainless and painless abdominoplasty techniques. The addition of state of the art medication for pain control, EXPAREL, helps minimize discomfort after surgery for up to three days. We refer to this as drainless and painless (abdominoplasty).
Also called arm lift surgery, brachioplasty is used to eliminate skin that hangs off the upper-arm area. Again, excess fat can also be removed, and any damaged supporting structures are restored. This leaves patients with a svelte upper-arm contour.
Have you ever wished you could take fat off one part of your body and transport it to another? This can be a reality with our innovative technology and fat grafting procedure! Fat grafting is available at the Plastic Surgery Group for patients interested in having fat removed from certain regions of their body they feel have excess fat, such as the tummy, the back, or the thighs. It is then transferred to a preferred area of the body that is lacking in volume, such as the breasts, buttocks, or face.
With labiaplasty, the discrete plastic surgeon removes excess tissue from the labia, resulting in a more symmetrical, rejuvenated look throughout a female’s intimate region.
With liposuction, the board-certified New Jersey plastic surgeon removes excess fat that is resistant to diet and exercise from under the skin. Appropriate candidates for liposuction include those who are at or slightly above their ideal body weight and have good skin elasticity but are plagued by stubborn, localized pockets of fat. PLastic Surgery Group specializes in liposuction of: abdomen, flanks, bra fat, thighs, buttocks, and knees.

After giving birth, it can be difficult for your body to bounce back to what it looked like pre-baby. With a new baby, you are most likely already sleep deprived and want to spend as much time as possible with your little one. Why go through all of this torture on your body just to see very little results? This is why the Plastic Surgery Group offers a special comprehensive plastic surgery package for moms: the mommy makeover.
A common complaint among those who have experienced significant weight loss is loose, sagging skin. Unfortunately, there is a point in weight loss where no amount of exercise or dieting will help to get rid of this excess skin and loose fat. This is where it becomes important to speak with a plastic surgeon about options for body contouring after weight loss. The Plastic Surgery Group offers post weight-loss body contouring procedures for this exact purpose. Explore some of the different body contouring options below.
With body lift surgery, the plastic surgeon again eliminates excess skin and fat and repairs the supporting tissue structures, for a tighter, toned contour throughout the trunk and / or lower body.
The panniculus lift is designed to treat panniculus, which is the area of excess subcutaneous fat and loose skin that sags below the pubic bone. This is an extremely common procedure amongst bariatric patients and women who have had multiple pregnancies.
Thigh lift surgery is an effective way to remove loose skin and unwanted fat from the thighs. During the procedure, the plastic surgeon also repairs the underlying tissues, for a smoother thigh profile.
Unfortunately, there will be times when patients are unhappy with their plastic surgery results or grow unhappy with them after many years.

Our team of skilled surgeons has seen at all, and we are skilled in repairing poor plastic surgery jobs or outdated jobs so that the patient is safe and happy with their appearance.
After sustaining a significant injury or wound on your body, the healing process can be unpredictable. Usually, significant wounds result in what is known as a scar. Scars can be an unsightly reminder of your injury, and while they may fade over time, they will generally stay on your body forever. If you have a scar you are self-conscious about, visit the Plastic Surgery Group today for a scar revision consultation.
In the United States, the most common form of cancer is skin cancer. On the positive side, skin cancer is relatively easy to treat and cure when compared to other cancers, especially when patients are aware of the signs and symptoms and go see a doctor. In several cases, a plastic surgeon is able to remove the skin cancer from the face or body and leave the patient cancer free. In more severe cases, the patient will need further treatment following the removal.
