Total Body Contouring

Sculpt and Redefine Your Body

When it comes to sculpting the body, Geisinger’s Center for Aesthetics & Cosmetic Surgery specializes in addressing each patient’s unique needs and desired results. During your body contouring consultation, together we will identify your specific areas of concern, and develop a specialized surgical plan, just for you, giving you natural, pleasing results.

VASER it®

VASER® Lipo uses the latest technology to slim those troublesome problem spots resistant to diet and exercise. You can get fast, predictable results and quickly get back to your daily routine.

This advanced body contouring procedure is a safe, gentle, alternative to liposuction. VASER Lipo uses ultrasonic energy to eliminate unwanted fat, while preserving important tissues, nerves, and vessels to minimize bruising and swelling. VASER Lipo reveals a smooth new shape and contour, with fast recovery.

VASER Lipo can be performed on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, back, arms, male and female breasts, neck and love handles. And, most VASER Lipo procedures can be performed in our clinic, under mild sedation, no need to go to the operating room. Very little downtime, shapely, contoured results.

Breast Enhancement (Augmentation)

There are many reasons that women choose breast augmentation surgery. Many wish to simply enlarge their breast size or balance asymmetrical breasts and achieve a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned look. Geisinger’s cosmetic surgeons perform both saline and silicone breast implantation.

Because each woman’s size, shape and body contour is different, it is very important during the consultation to clearly communicate your goals and expectations to our specialists. Your personal preference and body shape are key in determining your breast augmentation plan. Under our doctors’ expert care and surgical artistry, our patients enjoy great-looking, natural-feeling breasts.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

As women age, so do their breasts. They begin to sag and droop due to loss of volume and elasticity. Pregnancy, significant weight loss, gravity and breastfeeding can also cause women’s breasts to loose shape, volume and firmness.

A breast lift is performed to restore a youthful shape and rejuvenate the breasts by trimming excess skin and tightening supporting tissues to achieve an uplifted, youthful contour. Breast lifts can also reposition and reduce the size of the areola, the dark skin surrounding the nipple, which may have also stretched or drooped. The result is beautiful, uplifted breasts.

Breast Reduction

Women with large breasts often have health and lifestyle issues such as back and shoulder pain, improper posture, rashes, breathing problems, skeletal deformities, lack of energy and low self-esteem. Breast reduction surgery* is the smart solution for women suffering from these symptoms and will provide relief so that you can get back to living comfortably. Our physicians evaluate your individual needs and develop the perfect plan to help you look and feel better. After having breast reduction surgery, you will be amazed at how good you feel.

*Breast reduction is not recommended for women who intend to breastfeed, since many of the milk ducts leading to the nipples are removed during surgery.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

At Geisinger, our cosmetic surgeons have been performing tummy tucks with excellent results for many years. It is a popular type of cosmetic surgery for both men and women.  An abdominoplasty is a cosmetic procedure used to flatten and shape the abdomen by removing excess fast and skin, and if needed, tightening the surrounding muscles.

Liposuction can also be an added benefit to cosmetic procedures and augment results. We offer a wide variety of tummy tuck options, tailored to meet each individual’s body shape and desired results. A personal consultation will give you the opportunity to express your goals and expectations and our specialists will respond with a personalized plan to help you look your very best.

Body Lift (Belt Lipectomy)

You have lost weight, but your clothing still does not fit, and your shape is not what you expected after your weight loss success. Candidates for body lifts suffer from loose skin on many or most parts of their body. A body lift is often combined with other procedures such as breast lift, arm lifts and liposuction to retain proper body proportion and balance.

Body lifts tighten and tone the abdomen, back, buttocks, hips and thighs. Our patients report that results are visible immediately, however, as your body heals and settles, you will see even greater improvement. Over time, a new, shapely, contoured figure evolves that will surely meet your expectations and goals.

Thigh Lift

Loss of skin tone and excess fat are just some of the reasons that inner thigh skin begins to sag. Men and women alike, through weight loss, aging, gravity or loss of skin elasticity lose the shape and contour of their legs. A thigh lift removes fat and tightens skin. During your consultation, it will be important to assess the amount of skin removal needed to achieve your goal. Our surgeons offer thigh lifts with varied incisions, depending on the amount of skin to be removed. Liposuction can also be performed to enhance the results.

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

As with other parts of our body, after weight loss, or simply with age, our upper arms begin to sag and lose elasticity. Men and women both can benefit from an arm lift procedure to remove redundant and flabby skin from the upper arms. An arm lift can restore a person’s ability to wear short-sleeved blouses and shirts comfortably and show their arms without feeling self-confident or embarrassed.

At Geisinger, we evaluate the amount of skin to be removed and also discuss your thoughts regarding scarring. Patients with a significant amount of fat on their upper arms may also want to consider liposuction for more enhanced results. At your consultation it is important to formulate a surgical plan that will meet your personal goal.

Buttock Lift

Some of the reasons that men and women seek buttock lifts include: significant weight loss, being dissatisfied with what they are born with, the aging process, or they are simply in search of a shapely, more proportioned figure. Our surgeons take into consideration the size, shape and quality of your buttock, as well as the qualities you desire after surgery.

Buttock lifts are performed by lifting and tightening the buttock, as well as using liposuction to contour and shape. You will feel more comfortable, your clothes will fit better and you can restore the confidence and poise you deserve.

Liposuction

Liposuction can shape and enhance those parts of our body that contain excess areas of fat deposits. For women and men, liposuction is a minimally invasive, popular form of cosmetic body sculpting. New technology has allowed for different techniques that improve the accuracy and reduce the pain associated with this procedure. Today, liposuction is most often performed via the tumescent technique.

These new technologies have transformed liposuction into a much safer and less invasive procedure. Liposuction is versatile and can treat localized fat deposits on thighs, abdomen, arms, back, hips, buttocks, chest, face or neck. For added definition, liposuction is often used in combination with other cosmetic procedures such as abdominoplasty, facelifts, and body contouring.
