Cosmetic Surgery

Make Appointments & Get Care


When diet and exercise aren't sufficient to accomplish your goals, cosmetic body surgery can help. Our highly skilled team performs state-of-the-art body plastic surgery procedures to help you regain your natural look.

Using the most advanced techniques, our surgeons cover a full range of cosmetic procedures, such as:

  • Abdominoplasty ("Tummy Tuck") — surgery that removes excess skin and fat from the
    abdominal area and tightens the abdominal wall muscles.
  • Thigh lift — surgery that removes excess skin and fat from your thighs to remove the
    dimpled look produced by cellulite.
  • Liposuction — surgery that removes fat from specific areas of the body, including:
    • Abdomen
    • Hips
    • Buttocks
    • Inner/outer thighs
    • Knees/calves
    • Arms

UR Medicine's Approach

UR Medicine providers in the departments Otolaryngology and Plastic Surgery offer a full spectrum of cosmetic surgical procedures suitable for individuals looking for a more significant change to their appearance.

During your first consultation, your doctor will ask you about your expectations, your general health and any specific conditions that might interfere with surgery. You need to have a clear idea of why you want the surgery and a realistic idea of what you hope to look like after it. And you need to discuss these honestly with your surgeon.

Depending on your surgical plan, you may receive a local anesthesia, in which you'll be sedated and the area around the surgical site will be numbed, or a general anesthesia, which means you'll be asleep during the procedure. Healing can be slow and gradual, and the results of the surgery may not be apparent for many months.

Sometimes after losing a significant amount of weight, people are left with excess skin that doesn't conform to the body’s new shape. UR Medicine’s Life After Weight Loss program offers a comprehensive, customized selection of plastic surgery-based options to help you meet your goals for your body after weight loss.

What Sets Us Apart?

UR Medicine’s highly skilled, board-certified surgeons are trained in cosmetic body procedures, and many are fellowship-trained. They have the expertise necessary to ensure you have a safe procedure and achieve the results you want.

Our specialists perform hundreds of procedures and surgeries every year, so patient care is always in the hands of well-practiced experts.

As part of the University of Rochester Medical Center, our physicians are exposed to more complex conditions and unusual complications than most physicians in the area. Many of our surgeons are active educators and researchers, so they are up-to-date on the latest findings and techniques in their field.


We serve you in the Rochester metropolitan area and surrounding region.
