Many of us have areas of our bodies that we would like to improve. Sometimes, even the most rigorous diet and exercise regimens fail to get rid of stubborn fat pockets and areas of loose, hanging skin. Body contouring surgery from Dr. John L. LeRoy can effectively eliminate this excess fat to give you a tighter, more fit-looking appearance. Body procedures, such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery), are designed to get rid of extra skin in the abdominal region and tighten the underlying muscles for a firmer, flatter abdomen. Liposuction, one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures, can reduce excess fat in virtually any area of the body.
Pain management is an important part of plastic surgery recovery. Dr. LeRoy uses an injected analgesic known as Exparel® to provide patients with up to 72 hours of continuous post-operative pain relief after liposuction and tummy tuck surgery. This new pain reduction technology helps some patients minimize or even eliminate the need for additional narcotic post-surgical pain medications.
Band Aid Liposuction
Band Aid liposuction (or mini-liposuction) is a procedure that is very effective for patients who have only small areas of excess fat they would like to eliminate. The procedure is performed in-office with gentle numbing and is not as extensive as traditional liposuction; and downtime is comparatively minimal.

Traditional liposuction procedures are designed to target specific areas of your body – such as the thighs, arms, love handles, chest, and other regions – for fat removal. Liposuction can successfully rid of stubborn, excess fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Tummy tuck surgery focuses on loose, extra skin and fat in the midsection. The procedure involves lifting of the abdominal skin and removing the excess, then tightening the remaining skin and pulling the underlying muscles taut. Abdominoplasty results include a much firmer, more athletic-looking abdominal region.
