Achieving a contoured physique is a goal for many and sometimes can’t be achieved through exercise and a healthy lifestyle. Enlisting the support of a plastic surgeon who can develop the right treatment plan to help you successfully improve the areas of concern is necessary. And, thanks to innovations in plastic surgery, it is possible.

There are several cosmetic procedures for the body that focus on improving the area of concern. Genetics and lifestyle play a huge role. Cosmetic procedures for the body can be considered after weight loss and correcting genetic concerns, like cankles or flabby arms. Dr. Imber works very closely to determine the best treatment plan that can help his patients achieve their goals, in a realistic approach.



Abdominoplasty surgery, also known as a tummy tuck, is a body contouring procedure in NYC used to create a fitter and more sculpted stomach. This is achieved by removing excess drooping skin and tightening sagging abdominal muscles.

Ankle Microsuction

Ankle microsuction is a body treatment designed to reduce the size of a person’s ankles by removing stubborn fatty tissue. This form of liposuction creates a more graceful and contoured ankle.


Brachioplasty is a form of arm-contouring surgery in New York City. By removing excess fat and skin, we can get rid of bat wings and restore a toned shape to the upper arms.

Breast Augmentation

With the help of breast augmentation in the New York City area, patients can improve breast size and projection. The breast augmentation procedure involves placing silicone or saline implants to improve breast size and appearance.  

Breast Lift

A breast lift, also called mastopexy surgery, reduces the sagging that affects breasts over time. By trimming away excess skin, the breasts are lifted and reshaped for perkier contours.

Breast Reduction

If oversized breasts are causing you to experience physical, social, and/or emotional issues, you may benefit from a breast reduction. A breast reduction removes glandular tissue, breast fat, and skin to reduce the size of breasts. This will help create a breast size that is in proportion with your body. 

Fat Transfer

A fat transfer is a procedure in which excess fatty tissue is taken from one area of the body and transferred to another to replenish volume loss. This can be used for facial rejuvenation, lip augmentation, hand rejuvenation, and on other areas on your body. A fat transfer is used as an alternative to commercial filler and provides a more natural result.


Liposuction is a procedure for body contouring and is designed to remove stubborn fat. When diet and exercise can’t get rid of excess fat in various areas, this surgical procedure is an ideal option. It involves fat removal through a small incision using a cannula.


Microsuction is a specialized form of liposuction utilized for small and precise areas of the body. It removes very small pockets of fat, like under the chin and around the mouth, helping to sculpt the area.
