Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)​

An abdominoplasty procedure, or "tummy tuck," removes skin and fat from the abdominal region and is usually combined with a tightening of the inner abdominal corset (fascia) to give the best improvement in body contour. Incisions can usually be made below the upper border of where the underwear or a bikini bottom is worn, thus virtually "hiding" the scar. A "tummy tuck" can dramatically change the overall appearance of a patient's upper and lower abdomen. Liposuction is often performed in combination with abdominoplasty.

One of the most popular plastic surgical procedures available today, liposuction is a safe and effective way to achieve an improved body contour with small incisions and minimal scarring along with relatively limited downtime. Liposuction can be performed on the abdomen, the thighs, legs, the flanks ("love handles"), the chin, the arms, the bra-line, and the back.


Renuvion is the only device that is FDA‑cleared for use after liposuction, and the only device FDA‑cleared for contracting subcutaneous soft tissue. The wand is inserted under the skin and pulls the skin down, closer to the muscle, for a more contoured appearance.

Brachioplasty (arm lift)

Brachioplasty can help improve the appearance of the upper arms by removing excess skin and fat. Scars are hidden in the arm crease and the remaining tissues are tightened to improve overall appearance.

Thighplasty (Thigh lift)

A thigh lift (thighplasty) is a procedure done to improve the appearance of the thighs by removing excess skin and fat from either the inner or outer thighs. This procedure is often desirable after weight loss or in individuals for whom dieting and exercise have failed to reduce excess tissue in their upper thighs. Liposuction may be used as a supplement to the contouring of the inner thigh.

Post-pregnancy rejuvenation (mommy makeover)

A "Mommy Makeover" can involve a number of different surgeries designed to address the effects of pregnancy and restore your figure back to how it was pre-pregnancy. Breast and body plastic surgery options are combined in a custom procedure, tailored to your needs. Consultation with Dr. Peled will help you find the best way to proceed based on your overall goals and preferences.

Scar revision

Scar revision surgery is designed to improve the appearance of an existing scar, making it more consistent with the color and texture of your surrounding skin and tissue. Scar revision can be performed at any time after the development of an unsightly scar.
