Body Procedures

Both women and men are constantly at war with certain parts of their bodies. Dimply thighs, bulging tummies, love handles, and elephant ankles are all issues that can be dealt with effectively. Dr. Copeland offers body recontouring--the surgical removal of fat and skin and the molding of muscle--and will help patients determine which procedure or procedures will provide the desired results.
  • Abdominoplasty ("tummy tuck"). People who have especially slack skin in their midsection may need more than that which liposuction can offer. Typical candidates for this surgery are women with drooping abdomens after pregnancy or women and men who've lost a great deal of weight, or who have lost and gained weight repeatedly.

  • Mini Abdominoplasty. The mini-tummy tuck is a great option for those who want to slim the stomach and waist, but don't need the heavy lifting of a full abdominoplasty. It's especially effective for those who suffer from moderate but persistent potbelly or "bikini bulge." The main difference between the two procedures is that the mini-tummy tuck doesn't require moving or reconstructing the belly button.

  • Thigh, Buttock, and Arm Lifts. Whether via tightening with Thermage or lifting via a surgical procedure, resculpting the body is now easier than ever before. Excess skin can be removed, and the remaining skin can be repositioned and tightened. The result of these lifts is improved contour and a perkier look. Lifts may be done individually, or as part of a more complete body lift. It is now possible to do these procedures as an outpatient, under twilight anesthesia.

  • Calf Implants. Calf implants are a form of muscle enhancement surgery designed to improve leg contour. Through small incisions, implants can be inserted to create improved calf definition. Dr. Copeland can even use your own fat to increase the size of your calves, so that nothing artificial may be needed to correct a natural deformity or to increase the size of the leg.

  • Buttock Augmentation. The goal of buttock augmentation is to provide a more pleasing shape and contour to the backside by augmenting curves, correcting an imbalance or increasing size and prominence of the buttock. Dr. Copeland often uses a technique of fat grafting to provide a natural, sculpted buttock shape. Buttock implants, inserted through small incisions, can also be used to create a more prominent buttock.
