Body Contouring

Body contouring is a term we use to describe a wide range of surgical and non-surgical procedures designed to alter and improve your body size, shape and proportions.

Non-Surgical Options

Some body contouring can be quite effectively managed with simple, non-invasive treatments. These are non-surgical in nature and include CoolSculpting, Venus Freeze, Venus Viva, Kybella and Ulthera. You can read about these in the Non-Invasive Body Contouring section.

Surgical Options

Body Contouring surgeries are among the most popular procedures performed world-wide today. These procedures are highly specific to your individual needs and every patient is approached differently. Dr. Marcus is known for his individual approach to surgery, not using a “cookie cutter” approach that some surgeons use where all patients must fit the same procedure. The recovery time will vary depending on the complexity of the procedure you choose. Dr. Marcus’ consultations are very informative and allow you to make an educated and informed decision. Body contouring is one of Dr. Marcus’ areas of expertise. These are all performed on an outpatient basis in the private in-office surgery suite.


Liposuction is an extremely common procedure which contours or shapes one body. Liposuction removes unwanted fatty deposits anywhere on the body, even the face and neck.This involves the use of different diameter hollow tubes, or cannulas, to suction the fat from the area treated. This follows the placement of the tumescent solution. Incisions are usually 2-3mm in size and leave a very small scar. One of the main benefits of liposuction is that so much can be accomplished through several very small incisions.
