Body Contouring Surgery
When it comes to your body, you want to feel confident and sexy at every age. Sometimes life has other plans. Whether you are struggling to lose those last few pounds, stuck with loose or excess skin, or simply want a little help re-shaping a few curves, Dr. Karlinsky can help.
The following surgical procedures may be performed with general anesthesia at our Manhattan cosmetic surgery practice location. For your convenience, transportation will be arranged to and from your surgery, and all consultations and follow-up visits will take place at our Westchester location.
Upper arm contouring
Many men and women have a collection of stubborn fat in their upper arms that is resistant to toning exercises–that’s where an arm lift comes in. Technically called brachioplasty, surgical arm contouring is a cosmetic procedure that addresses excess skin and fat (when paired with liposuction) from the upper arm area.
While under general anesthesia, Dr. Karlinsky will begin the process by making an incision lengthwise on the underside of your arm, from elbow to armpit. If needed, liposuction will be performed to take care of any lingering fat. At the same time, she will work on removing extra skin to create a lifting effect.
Arm lift surgery takes approximately two to three hours to complete. Patients who choose this procedure will see a drastic improvement in the size and shape of their arm although it is important to keep in mind that scars will remain after the operation.
A personally customized thigh lift procedure performed by Dr. Karlinsky can help to provide you with the slim and sexy look you deserve. Cosmetic thigh lifts take care of excess skin from the upper leg area and eliminate the appearance of loose, droopy skin around the thighs and knees. Dr. Karlinsky may also incorporate liposuction into the procedure for optimal slimming results.
Depending on the amount of fat and excess skin to be treated, either a medial thigh lift or a vertical thigh lift will be performed. Thigh lift procedures take approximately two to four hours to complete. Results vary, but most of our clients are able to enjoy the benefits long into the future with a healthy diet and exercise program.
Body contouring after weight loss
Unfortunately, losing a significant amount of weight can bring on its own set of challenges. The most common aftereffects of reaching your weight-loss goal are large amounts of excess skin all over your frame. However, a body lift from Westchester Surgical Arts can bring your newly slimmed-down body into focus by providing toned and natural-looking contours that complement your healthy new lifestyle.
A full body lift is a comprehensive process that addresses excess tissue and fat in patients who have lost extreme amounts of weight. It’s especially effective for bariatric or gastric bypass surgery patients. Dr. Karlinsky will likely perform your lower and upper body lifts separately: Your lower body lift may include a tummy tuck, thigh lifts, and a butt lift or buttocks enhancement. Your upper body lift could also involve a chest or breast lift, back lift, and arm lifts. Throughout the entire procedure, Dr. Karlinsky will skillfully make as few incisions as possible, removing excess fat and skin only as needed. Her dedication to natural contouring and appropriate size reduction will give you the tighter, more slender appearance you deserve after your weight-loss journey.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Minimally invasive buttocks enhancement
If your biggest concern is your backside, a Brazilian butt lift from Dr. Karlinsky can help you achieve the curvy shape you want with the added bonus of losing some unwanted fat along the way. This popular buttocks-enhancement procedure is less invasive and allows for faster recovery times than a full gluteal implant procedure.
During the procedure, Dr. Karlinsky will use liposuction to remove excess fat from areas of the body where it is not needed, such as your abdomen, thighs, hips, or back. She then re-purposes this fatty tissue to give the buttocks a rounder and more lifted shape.
Dr. Karlinsky will typically complete this procedure in about two to four hours. Brazilian butt lift results vary between patients based on the amount of enhancement desired and where the fat is being taken from.

Mini Tummy Tuck
A mini tummy tuck can be the perfect way to quickly achieve a flatter, smoother stomach with half the downtime, half the scarring, and half the price of a traditional abdominoplasty. A mini tummy tuck is a great option for women who have lost weight or given birth, but who don’t have a lot of time to spend recovering from more invasive surgeries.
The mini tummy tuck procedure performed by Dr. Karlinsky relies on a much smaller incision than is normally needed for a standard tummy tuck. She will remove excess skin and fat from your stomach area, while leaving your navel intact for the most natural-looking recovery results.
