At Advanced Aesthetic Surgery, our skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Thomas Lintner, performs liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, and other body contouring procedures. He has over 20 years of experience with these types of procedures. Because of his familiarity with body contouring, Dr. Lintner can offer an honest analysis to patients considering abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) or liposuction. In many cases, he will discuss the possible results of non-surgical options like diet and exercise before delving into surgical body sculpting procedures.

Able to treat virtually any area of the body, liposuction is designed to eliminate localized pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. If stubborn fat is your main concern, Dr. Lintner may recommend liposuction over more invasive body contouring procedures. Common treatment areas include the abdomen, flanks (love handles), thighs, neck, and back.
As a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, SculpSure® has helped many of our patients eliminate unwanted fat with little or no downtime. Utilizing innovative light-based technology, this treatment specifically targets and destroys stubborn fat cells, while leaving surrounding healthy tissue unharmed.
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is often an appropriate choice for individuals who have experienced torn muscles after a pregnancy or significant weight loss. A tummy tuck can tighten loose muscles and skin in the abdominal region, and is frequently combined with liposuction to remove excess fat.
For individuals in need of more comprehensive body contouring (usually after massive weight loss), Dr. Lintner can combine a variety of lifting techniques to reveal the silhouette you have worked so hard to attain. These procedures can include arm lift, thigh lift, buttocks lift, and more.
BodyTite combines innovative radiofrequency (RF) technology with liposuction to provide patients with a minimally invasive body contouring option. BodyTite is designed to remove unwanted fat while simultaneously tightening skin and underlying tissues for results similar to more invasive procedures.
Patients who have loose skin and unwanted fat, but do not require abdominal repair are often considered ideal candidates for a panniculectomy, rather than abdominoplasty. Dr. Lintner can assess your individual situation during your consultation to help you find the body contouring procedure that can best address your concerns.
Lower Body Lift
After losing a significant amount of weight, many patients struggle with excess skin in the buttocks, flanks (love handles), and hips. A lower body lift can help address the loose hanging skin in these areas to provide you with an improved contour.
If you have accumulated loose skin and fat around the inner and/or outer thigh area, a thigh lift may be able to help you achieve a smoother, more firm appearance. Dr. Lintner can combine this procedure with other body contouring or lifting procedures for more comprehensive treatment, if desired.
Excess skin and fat on the arms is a common problem, especially as we age. An arm lift can help remove pockets of unwanted fat while tightening loose, hanging skin on the arms for an improved shape.
