If you're unhappy with any aspect of your life, it can negatively impact every aspect of it.

  • Liposuction

    This body contouring procedure can provide a more flattering silhouette by reducing diet and exercise-resistant pockets of fat from the cheeks of the face, chin, neck, chest, upper arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs or ankles.


    As an alternative to traditional liposuction, Smartlipo uses the aid of laser energy to make fat extraction easier and reduce downtime after the procedure. Smartlipo targets unwanted fat on the abdomen, thighs, arms, neck, buttocks, and elsewhere.

    Tummy Tucks

    San Diego men and women choose abdominoplasty — one of the top five plastic surgery procedures in the country — to reduce the appearance of a protruding tummy. By tightening the vertical muscles and loose, sagging skin, a smaller waist and a firmer stomach result.


    Cellulite, a common condition often mistakenly associated with excess fat, is actually caused by fibrous connective tissue. Cellulaze is a minimally invasive method that disrupts the structure of cellulite for noticeably smoother results.


    Want a flatter, trimmer midsection without surgery? CoolSculpting, a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment for reducing fat, may help you defeat stubborn fat pockets and give you a thinner, sexier waistline free of love handles and muffin tops.

    Body Lift

    Excessive weight is no longer an issue; that's good. It's been replaced by excess skin; that's bad. There's hope. You don't have to hide stretched, sagging skin beneath your clothes. You took the first step by losing the weight, now take the next step.
