There are few things which make us feel more confident than a youthful figure. Looking great as we enter a room can make a difference in how others see us and how we see ourselves. This fact is why so many people spend time and effort to make sure they look fit. Although committing to a diet and exercise routine is essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle, achieving your optimal body shape may require more. Stubborn fat bulges which ignore your healthy eating habits and the hours you spend at the gym tend to become more persistent with age. The good news is there are body sculpting procedures which can deliver the body outline you have been working hard to obtain. 

Some people struggle with fat pads in multiple body parts. With women, it seems to be around the tummy, back, and thighs. Men struggle with the belly and flanks. If you need to sculpt down more than one area, you may need to consider combining body contouring procedures to get the body you want. 


Liposuction is a  time-tested cosmetic surgery is the most popular operation of aesthetics worldwide. It has been around for over four decades and has evolved into a safe, effective procedure to eliminate unwanted fat cells that seem to reside in all the wrong places. Another reason it is the key body sculpting procedure for most plastic surgeons is they combine it with other body-enhancing operations. Breast surgeries like breast lifts utilize liposuction to remove or reposition fat pats to give breast higher elevation. A tummy tuck will incorporate liposuction to remove excess fat cells which accumulate in the abdominal area. And the list continues with a thigh lift and arm lift. 

Mommy Makeover

By definition, a mommy makeover is a combination of body contouring procedures to regain pre-pregnancy figures for women after having children. The most popular operations Dr. Zochowski employs for this procedure are breast augmentation, breast lift, and a tummy tuck. Other surgeries used to with a mommy makeover are thigh lift and arm lift. 

Because childbearing has a significant effect on a mother’s figure, a mommy makeover is an excellent option for mothers who want to look less matronly and wish to regain their youthful silhouette. 

Breast Improvements

Whether a woman wants to make her breasts bigger or smaller, multiple breast procedures may be necessary to attain optimal contours and elevation. Combining breast augmentation with a breast lift can increase size, make breasts firmer, and lift the breast to that youthful upward curve. If a breast reduction is required, more times than not, so will a mastopexy. During a consultation, Dr. Zochowski will explain what operations are necessary to help you look your best.
