What is it?
Body contouring is a surgical procedure to reshape areas of the body as desired. Individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight, left with sagging or loose skin around different areas of their body, or those who want to simply improve the overall appearance and shape of their body are ideal candidates for body contouring surgery. There are a variety of body
sculpting techniques available to patients to achieve a more toned and sculpted figure. Common body contouring techniques include an arm lift, bicep implants, a body lift, butt implants, a butt lift, calf implants, liposuction, pec implants, a thigh lift, tummy tuck, and cellulite reduction. These, among others, are procedures aimed to improve the tone and shape of your body.

Body contouring is highly customizable according to the individual needs of each patient. A complete lower body lift, for example, consists of shaping sagging buttocks, the abdomen, waist, hips and outer thighs, all in one procedure. A breast lift will correct sagging or flattened breasts; an arm lift will correct sagging upper arms; and a thigh lift will correct sagging inner,
mid and/pr outer thighs. Body contouring procedures are intensive surgical procedures and recovery could last anyway from days to weeks. Recovery at home is possible but you may be advised to avoid putting any strain on your body, including lifting, stretching or bending until your body is more fully recovered.

Average cost:
Fully body – $30,000
Arm – $8,000
Thigh – $10,000
Neck and face – $15,000

The procedure:
Step one – The initial consultation and physical exam to customize your procedure.
Step two – General anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
Step three – Depending on the location and amount of the loose skin, the incisions will vary. In
most cases, the incisions are extensive. Most incisions will be placed in strategic locations to
reduce the appearance of a scar.
Step four – Suture incisions closed. Closely follow at home recovery instructions to ensure
optimal results.


Patient Testimonials:

Dr. Koumanis is truly amazing. Our son, Noah, was eight when he was bitten on the face by our dog in June 2015. A piece of his top left lip was ripped out, his cheek was torn open, and he had a slice in his bottom lip. Dr.Koumanis arrived in the emergency room, so calm and sure of just what needed to be done. He reattached the piece of lip in exactly the right position by matching the direction of the tiny hairs on his upper lip. over the last 18 months, he has done a follow-up surgery and seen Noah multiple times to check on how his face is healing. We could not be happier or more amazed with the results. Noah is ten now, and if you saw him on the street, you would not be able to tell the severity of his injuries based on how amazing he looks today. Noah has never been embarrassed or distressed about his lip (he was cracking jokes in the ER). That is just who he is as a person, but his continued confidence in spite of what could have been debilitating is a testament to just what a spectacular job Dr.Koumanis did on reconstructing his beautiful face. Our family cannot recommend Dr.Koumanis highly enough. Thank you so much. – Melanie P., Ballston Spa, NY

Dr.Koumanis you are incredible! I’m very grateful to have you as my doctor. I feel like a new woman who feels sexy again. After years of taking care of everybody else, I finally did something for me. My results are better than expected. I actually miss seeing you and your wonderful staff. Thank you for the beautiful work you did on me! – Lynne, Burnt Hills, NY

Very professional, compassionate and knowledgeable surgeon. Dr.Koumanis restored me to better than natural after the scary nightmare diagnosis of breast cancer. I found him to be the most humanistic, caring and talented surgeon in the Northeast. He has the utmost concern for your feelings as well as an expert artistic vision for your best outcome. He really is a reconstructive genius after breast cancer! At the onset of the treatment ( a double mastectomy), he said that in a bit of time I wouldn’t think about the reconstruction at all … he was right! Thank you Doctor Koumanis and your wonderful staff for walking me through a darker place. I came out of the other side with my head held high and a new sense of self-worth!  Sincerely,  L.M., Altamont NY
