Our Body Services

Whether we like it or not, our bodies change over time. With aging and outside factors such as pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss, injury and illness, the body may change into an undesired shape. An unwanted figure may potentially have a deeper psychological impact and influence our daily decisions.

LomaLindaUniversityMedicalCenter’s Department of Plastic Surgery surgeons focus on the physical and emotional needs of our patients. Closely working with a multidisciplinary team, our experienced surgeons perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures that enhance body parts and restore the body to a healthy and natural state. Ultimately, patients regain their self-confidence and become satisfied with their overall body image. Body plastic surgery services include:



Liposuction, or lipoplasty, is a procedure that removes excess body fat by suction to improve body shape and contour. When stubborn fat deposits are resistant to exercise or diet, liposuction is effective in removing unwanted fat deposits in trouble areas including the thighs, hips, stomach, chin and upper arms. An improvement in body proportion and shape through liposuction may increase a patient’s self-esteem and confidence.


Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) 

Tummy tuck, or medically known as abdominoplasty, is a procedure that flattens and minimizes the abdominal area. With this procedure, excess fat and skin in the belly are surgically removed and the muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened to create a smoother and firmer abdomen.


Thigh Lift

A thigh lift is a procedure designed to reshape the contours of the inner and outer thighs by lifting and tightening loose, excess and sagging skin. The end result is a toned and taut thigh that is proportionate to the lower body.


Buttock Lift

A buttock lift is a procedure that enhances the size and shape of the butt. It is achieved by removing excess skin and tightening it so it appears perkier, firmer and more rounded.


Arm Lift

Otherwise known as brachioplasty, an arm lift firms and reshapes the upper arm area between the elbow and shoulder. The procedure surgically removes sagging skin and fat to make the arm look toned and proportionate.
