Cosmetic & Body Contouring

Feel the confidence you deserve. The expert plastic surgeons at Cedars-Sinai create remarkable changes every day. We perform body-contouring procedures and remove extra skin after weight loss. We also offer tummy tucks and other cosmetic procedures.

Our Approach to Cosmetic & Body Contouring

We want you to look and feel your best. If you had bariatric surgery or a significant weight loss, you may need body contouring, also called body sculpting, to remove excess skin. Others want plastic surgery to improve certain aspects of their appearance. Find out more about our weight loss center.

Improved Quality of Life

Body contouring gives that extra boost for people who’ve already lost weight and are healthy enough for surgery. These procedures can help you feel better about your new body and reduce skin irritation and infections.

Personalized Care

We first get to know you, your desires and expectations. This approach helps us tailor a plan that’s both safe and realistic. You may choose to have only one procedure, or we can schedule a series of procedures over time.

Our knowledgeable and experienced plastic surgeons work with you to achieve the results you desire.

Cosmetic & Body Contouring: What to Expect

Most body contouring plastic surgery requires anesthesia and incisions. You may have pain or discomfort following surgery. We can prescribe medications and recommend other methods to help you recover and heal. Depending on the type of procedure, you may stay in the hospital for a few days as you recover.

Fat grafting

We take fat from one part of the body and use it to enhance other areas. Fat grafting is part of cosmetic breast augmentations. We can also inject fat into the face to reduce signs of aging.

Tummy tucks

Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is a common procedure to remove unwanted fat and skin from the abdomen and tighten abdominal wall muscles. Some people choose to combine a tummy tuck with liposuction and breast augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction.

Other body contouring

We also perform other procedures that target specific areas, including arm lifts, breast lifts, thigh lifts and breast augmentations. Like all of our body contouring offerings, we personalize these procedures to your needs.


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat deposits from the buttocks, thighs, face, arms, hips, abdomen or other areas. The surgeon inserts a suction tube beneath the skin to remove the fat.

Fat freezing

Cryolipolysis is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive way to remove stubborn fat. Known as fat freezing, it’s a simple in-office procedure with little, if any, pain and no anesthesia. The procedure freezes fat cells, which then shrink. Cryolipolysis is beneficial for people who have smaller areas they wish to target and want a quick solution.
