When it comes to enhancing your body’s aesthetics and achieving the desired contours, there are numerous ways to get your dream body. At Plastic Surgery Associates in Salinas, CA, we offer a wide range of body contouring procedures to help you achieve the look you desire.

Body Contouring Procedures primarily target areas of body fat around the waist, arms, thighs and buttocks. With a variety of surgical procedures that include Brazilian Butt Lift and Abdominoplasty as well as non-invasive CoolSculpting Procedures, Salinas Valley Plastic Surgery can help you get that bikini body you’ve always wanted.


More commonly known as a tummy tuck, abdominoplasty is perfect for patients who have loose skin, excess fat, and sagging muscles that affect the appearance of their abdomen. Massive weight loss and rapid weight loss can cause the skin around the patient’s stomach to lose elasticity. This procedure will remove the excess skin and fat, tighten the remaining skin, and tighten the abdominal muscles.

Arm Lift

Loose skin and fat around the arms can cause the area to look flabby. An arm lift, also called brachioplasty surgery, will help improve the shape and contours of the arms for a tighter and fitter appearance.

Brazilian Butt Lift

There is no need to get butt implants when the Brazilian butt lift is available. The BBL involves transferring fat from other parts of the body to enhance the size and curves of the patient’s buttocks. As a result of using natural fat, the increase in volume looks more natural and there is less of a risk of rejection on the part of the patient.

Circumferential Body Lift

Patients who lose a lot of weight in a very short amount of time can end up with loose skin in different areas of their body. The circumferential body lift targets several areas at once for comprehensive tightening. This allows patients to show off their weight-loss results without drooping skin.

Thigh Lift

Excess skin and fat around the thighs can be removed through a thigh lift, also called thighplasty surgery. The thighs will then look more contoured and sculpted.


How is a tummy tuck different from liposuction?

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen, while also tightening the abdominal muscles. Liposuction, on the other hand, is a minimally invasive procedure that targets localized fat deposits by suctioning them out. The choice between the two depends on your specific needs and goals.

Are the results of body procedures permanent?

The longevity of results varies among procedures. Body contouring procedures like liposuction can provide long-lasting results, especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle. However, the natural aging process and lifestyle factors can influence how long your results last.

Are body procedures safe?

When performed by experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons, body procedures are generally safe. At Plastic Surgery Associates, patient safety is a top priority. We conduct thorough evaluations and discuss potential risks during your consultation.

Can multiple body procedures be done simultaneously?

Yes, in many cases, multiple body procedures can be performed during a single surgery, reducing overall recovery time and cost. Combining procedures like liposuction and tummy tucks is common and can provide comprehensive results.

What is the recovery time for body procedures?

Recovery times vary based on the specific procedure and the individual. It’s essential to follow post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery process. Our experienced team will guide you through the recovery journey.
