Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons Serving Denver & Lone Tree, Colorado
At Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeons are dedicated to helping you achieve your body contouring goals. We understand that hard work, healthy diet and exercise aren't always enough to give you that sculpted, beautiful body you want and deserve. Skin can lose elasticity, and unwanted areas of fat can remain after successful significant weight loss, pregnancy, or as a result of the natural aging process. Unfortunately, you can work your hardest, but still not look your best.
Body contouring can help. At Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a number of procedures that target stubborn pockets of unwanted fat, loose and sagging excess skin, and trouble areas where no matter how hard you try, you just can't achieve the results you want on your own. Our board-certified Denver plastic surgeons are committed to tailoring a solution to meet your individual needs, using the latest, most advanced, proven and safe techniques.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can give you a tighter, firmer and thinner abdominal profile. If you have excess fat and skin on your lower abdomen that is resistant to diet and exercise, a tummy tuck might be right for you.
Whether you're interested in a traditional full tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck, we'll remove excess tummy fat and restore your weakened or separated abdominal muscles to give you a smoother and slimmer tummy. Depending on your individual circumstances, a tummy tuck can be performed together with other procedures. At Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery, we'll work with you to help you determine which procedures are right for you.

At Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery, we use the most recent advances in female and male liposuction techniques to achieve more precise results with shorter recovery times. Liposuction works to remove excess fat from the fat layer beneath the skin to give you a more sculpted and contoured look. Depending on the areas you want to improve and other considerations, we'll help you determine which technique would be right for you.
Our cosmetic surgeons offer tumescent liposuction, the super-wet liposuction technique, ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty, and power-assisted liposuction.
Despite all of your efforts to achieve a toned figure, you may still struggle with small pockets of excess fat. This is often due to factors outside of your control, such as a genetic predisposition to store weight in certain areas.

What Is Surgical Body Contouring?
Body contouring, or body sculpting, involves liposuction or the removal of excess fat and skin, typically after a patient loses a significant amount of weight. This excess skin that is left behind after a major weight loss can often be troublesome and affect the confidence of patients. For many on their weight loss journey, this extra skin prevents them from achieving the slimmer appearance they’ve been working towards. Now, thanks to surgical body contouring, this skin can be removed through reconstructive surgery. By eliminating sagging skin and excess fat from the body, patients can then enjoy a body with smoother contours and a more refined silhouette once they make a full recovery from their procedure.
What Is Non-Invasive Body Contouring?
For patients uninterested in committing to a surgical procedure but still want the results of a successful body contouring treatment, CoolSculpting targets fat cells beneath the skin and involves no surgical incisions. While eliminating these fat cells, patients are left with a body contour that enhances their natural curves without the need for a full recovery from traditional surgery.
What Areas Can Body Contouring Treat?
Body contouring can be applied to areas such as the lower back, thighs, abdomen, waistline, hips, upper arms, and under the chin.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?
Ideal candidates for body contouring are those in overall good health and who believe they can maintain a steady weight following their procedure. It’s also recommended that candidates for body contouring are non-smokers and are not suffering from any active infections during treatment. To be eligible for liposuction, patients should be at least 18 years of age.
What Is Recovery from Body Contouring Like?
After your body contouring treatment, healing may take several weeks. Compression garments will be needed while you recover to prevent complications. Common side effects after this treatment include redness, sensitivity, tenderness, swelling, and bruising. However, within seven days of your treatment, patients can begin to see their side effects improve. Most patients are able to return to work within four to six weeks.
What Are the Benefits of Body Contouring?
There are many benefits to body contouring, including eliminating stubborn body fat, helping patients achieve their goal weight, and providing results that can last up to ten years or more. Many patients report an increase in their self-esteem and confidence after making a full recovery from their body contouring treatment.
How Can I Maintain My Results from Body Contouring?
The best way you can make your body contouring results last longer is to maintain a balanced diet and an exercise routine you can commit to daily. Because losing or gaining a significant amount of weight can change the appearance of your body contouring results, it’s essential that patients keep a healthy lifestyle in order to stabilize their weight and maintain their results.
