Body Contouring

Our bodies don’t always reflect how healthy and fit we really are. We all strive for a well-toned, athletic figure. But for some of us, no amount of dieting or exercise can help us achieve it. You’ve worked hard – isn’t it time that you attained the figure you’ve been working for?

Now you can.  Body contouring procedures can help you eliminate stubborn fat, remove excess tissue, and lift sagging skin. Body procedures range from surgical options such as abdominoplasty to nonsurgical treatments such as CoolSculpting. With the right treatment, our Long Beach practice can help you attain a smoother, more athletic figure.

Body surgeries can fix a wide variety of issues. It’s excellent for patients who have excess skin after substantial weight loss, patients who want to slim down fatty areas, and women who want their old figure back.

Body contouring should never be thought of as a weight-loss alternative. It would be dangerous to remove enough tissue to result in substantial weight loss. That’s why the ideal candidate for body surgery is a relatively healthy patient who just wants to refine their figure.

Having your body contouring performed by a skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Josh Waltzman can help take your results to the next level. But what’s even more crucial is that you’ll have the opportunity to work with a caring, compassionate surgeon who can help you through this transformation.


An abdominoplasty is a type of body surgery that targets the belly. It’s effective for women whose bellies never fully recovered from pregnancy, patients with excess skin on the belly, and patients who can’t seem to get rid of fat on the abdomen. An abdominoplasty is performed by creating an incision above the pubic bone, so it will result in a narrow scar. The scar can often times be easily hidden by your underwear.

Keep in mind, unlike body contouring treatments such as liposuction, an abdominoplasty can remove excess skin and tighten the muscles.

Liposuction is the ultimate body contouring procedure. With the ability to target dozens of places on the body, liposuction can sculpt a variety of areas with extreme precision. It’s performed using a cannula – a narrow, hollow tube – that’s inserted underneath the skin to extract fat. Once the fat has been removed, it’s gone forever, so your body contouring results should be permanent as long as you maintain a stable weight.

As versatile as this body surgery may be, it won’t remove excess skin. Patients who undergo liposuction should have excellent skin elasticity. Your skin should be able to shrink back to the body’s natural contours after the treatment.

Mommy Makeover

Motherhood is a life-changing experience, but there isn’t a lot said about the physical transformations that occur after pregnancy and breastfeeding. It’s different for all women, but some women end up with loose abdominal muscles, sagging breasts, and stubborn pockets of fat. With this body contouring procedure, women can finally target all of these issues with one combination procedure.

At Waltzman Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, your mommy makeover will be fully customized to your unique needs.

Body Lift

Although bariatric surgery can help people attain a healthier life, we don’t acknowledge its most common side effect: excess skin. After years of hard work, some patients are left to deal with unsightly folds of skin. This excess skin can make it difficult for patients to wear their favorite clothes — even after they achieve their goal weight.

With a body lift, Dr. Waltzman can remove excess skin, lift sagging tissues, and help patients achieve the body they deserve. The body lift is a comprehensive body contouring procedure that can target the abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks, the face, and the neck.

Dr. Waltzman doesn’t just perform body surgery with sophisticated techniques – he’s also keen on using the latest body contouring technology. With CoolSculpting, patients can target stubborn pockets of fat without needing a single incision or suture.

The CoolSculpting procedure is based on advanced fat freezing technology that eliminates fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues. Its results are also permanent, so patients can look forward to long-lasting outcomes without any downtime.
