Body Contouring: Time to get bikini ready

By: Dr. Lawrence Iteld


It may not seem like it, but summer is just a few months away, which makes this a perfect time to get bikini-ready. We have many surgical options to help you refine your body and look your best in summer clothing.

Body Contouring Surgical Options

With an expanding spectrum of plastic surgery procedures available, there is no doubt we have just the right one to meet your custom needs:


Breast procedures are the most popular surgeries requested by women. Some women want larger breasts and enjoy the benefits of augmentation with implants, fat transfer, or even both. For some women who are overly endowed, reduction is just the ticket to give them relief from the extra weight, as well as a more streamlined silhouette. Other breast procedures include lifts, which are often included with augmentation and reduction surgery. Dr. Iteld also performs revisions when patients aren’t happy with how their breasts look after a previous surgery; and reconstruction following mastectomies. Let’s not forget the impact the rest of your body has on your overall shape! That’s why our patients seek out many of the body contouring surgeries we perform. The most popular is liposuction for getting rid of unwanted fat anywhere you have it and have been unable to diet and exercise it away. Also popular are tummy tucks, mommy makeovers, and butt augmentation (BBL). Additionally, we have several specialized procedures involving women’s health, as well as arm lifts and thigh lifts.


Men: now is your time to look your best! That’s why the most frequent body contouring procedure men request is breast reduction (Gynecomastia). But that isn’t the only body change men want. More often, men are requesting:

  • liposuction to remove unwanted pockets of fat
  • chest, calves, and buttocks augmentation
  • body lift
  • daddy do-overs


You deserve to have your outer appearance reflect your true inner self. Certain angles and body contours are considered more feminine, while others are more traditionally masculine. This is a delicate balance and why we spend a great deal of time counseling our transgender patients, helping them verbalize their aesthetic goals, and translating this into their surgical transformation. We specialize in procedures for top surgery, which includes male-to-female, female-to-male, non-binary, and non-conforming patients. Please note that Dr. Iteld performs top surgery only and can refer you to well-known specialist surgeons to help you continue your transformation.

You deserve a great body
