Changing the body’s appearance is oftentimes more involved than just eating a well-balanced diet and exercising regularly. Even the strictest of diet and exercise regimens are sometimes not enough to eliminate fatty tissues stored in the body. Often, the locations of fat deposits are actually inherited and run in the family. At Gryskiewicz Twin Cities Cosmetic Surgery, we offer many different safe, effective procedures that will assist you in achieving the body of your dreams.
During your initial consultation, you will have the opportunity to talk to Dr. Joe Gryskiewicz and Dr. Karan Chopra about your aesthetic goals and which body contouring options are best for your needs.
Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed each year. The body sculpting option effectively contours areas of stubborn fat to create a more toned appearance. To perform the procedure, Dr. Joe or Dr. Chopra will carefully insert a narrow tube (cannula) into the target area, suctioning out the excess fatty tissue. This can be performed in a wide range of areas, including the face, neck, upper arms, trunk, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and knees.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, is designed to remove excess tissue in the abdomen and is often used to tighten the abdominal muscles as well. This procedure is most commonly performed on women following pregnancy, since this can cause the lower abdominal muscles to stretch and fat deposits to develop. The procedure can also be helpful for those who have lost a significant amount of weight and have excess skin as a result. Tummy tuck surgery can flatten a protruding stomach area, creating a more toned appearance.

A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures intended to restore a woman’s pre-baby body. Mommy makeover surgery is highly customized to the needs of each patient, and may include breast surgery—such as a lift, augmentation, or reduction—or body contouring options, like liposuction or tummy tuck surgery. Some patients may also opt to receive facial rejuvenation with cosmetic injectables.

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that can help tone and tighten fatty areas that have not responded to diet and exercise. The technique works by delivering cooling energy into targeted areas of localized fat, damaging the cells and stimulating the body’s response to eliminate the targeted fat cells through the lymphatic system. CoolSculpting® can be performed on a wide range of body areas, such as the chin, abdomen, love handles, flanks, back, buttocks, arms, and thighs.

Arm lift surgery is ideal for patients with excess skin and fat that are causing a sagging upper arm appearance. By removing this excess tissue and tightening the remaining area, Dr. Joe and Dr. Chopra can help patients achieve a more defined arm contour. Arm lift surgery is often recommended for patients who have hanging skin in their upper arms due to major weight loss or the natural aging process.

In the thigh lift procedure, Dr. Joe and Dr. Chopra tighten loose or excess skin around the circumference of the thighs. This typically involves some degree of skin removal to produce a more toned look, and liposuction may also be performed to create a smoother shape. In addition to improving the aesthetic of the thighs, thigh lift surgery can improve the way clothing fits and reduce irritation from skin folds and friction between the thighs.

If you experience pain from friction and/or the twisting and tugging of excess labial tissue, our plastic surgeons can help you achieve relief from the common symptoms of elongated labia (or labia minora hypertrophy). Labiaplasty is designed to recontour enlarged or asymmetrical labia, often minimizing visibility in form-fitting clothing and reducing discomfort when sitting or riding a bike. Whether pursued for functional or cosmetic reasons, labiaplasty has helped countless women refresh their feminine wellness and enjoy a more comfortable quality of life.

In some cases, severe pain that does not improve with medication and physical therapy may be caused by nerve-related trauma. If you are contending with pain in the face, arms, legs, or torso that seemingly has no source, Dr. Karan Chopra can assess your symptoms and determine whether you may benefit from peripheral nerve surgery. As a highly skilled peripheral nerve surgeon, Dr. Chopra has developed successful nerve-intervention treatments for individuals who experience pain from diabetic neuropathy, sports, C-sections, or reconstructive surgery, among other causes. For the right patients, peripheral nerve surgery can be an effective procedure to repair damaged nerves for long-term pain relief.
