Body Contouring

Conveniently located to serve the areas of Marin, San Francisco, Sonoma and Napa

If the shape you’re in doesn’t match the image you’d like to present to the world, our body contouring surgeons in Marin County at Plastic Surgery Specialists perform a range of procedures in our state-of-the-art surgery center. Liposuction and tummy tuck surgery are popular options for San Francisco Bay Area residents, and they are just a couple of the many options we offer. Age and genetics can undermine good intentions, healthy eating habits, and regular exercise, and the way fat gets distributed in the body is often out of a person’s control. Dr. Poulos and Dr. Hvistendahl can help patients take control and get the figure they’ve been working toward.

Discover why patients visit our center of excellence for surgical and non-surgical body contouring procedures, coming from San Francisco, Napa, Santa Rosa, and beyond. We invite you to request a consultation online or call us at (415) 925-2880 to schedule an appointment.

Procedures We Offer

At Plastic Surgery Specialists, we consider body sculpting an art. We are proud to have helped both women and men attain more balanced and aesthetically pleasing bodies. Let us help you achieve a more proportioned, shapelier body, too. We provide an array of procedures to address your specific needs.


Liposuction removes pockets of fat from areas such as the abdomen and thighs where bulges remain despite regular exercise and healthy eating choices.


Smartlipo is a minimally invasive form of liposuction that uses laser energy. It can be an excellent alternative to traditional liposuction for patients interested in a shorter recovery and less bruising.


Clinically proven to reduce cellulite, Cellulaze is the only minimally invasive laser-assisted treatment that attacks cellulite beneath the skin. Most patients see results after a single treatment.

Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, commonly called a tummy tuck, reduces excess skin and fat while tightening your abdominal muscles. It’s often combined with cosmetic breast surgery and liposuction as part of a mommy makeover.

Body Lift

A body lift can address several areas, including the lower body. We often recommend this procedure for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, either through dieting or weight-loss surgery.

Arm Lift

An arm lift, also called brachioplasty, is an increasingly popular procedure used to give your upper arms a trim, toned appearance. We usually recommend an arm lift for patients who cannot achieve the appearance they want through exercise.

Mommy Makeover

Combining body contouring procedures in a single surgery is a safe and cost-effective way to regain a more youthful figure, whether you’re a mom who is finished having children or a woman who wants to reverse the effects of aging on your body. The combination of procedures usually includes a tummy tuck, liposuction, and cosmetic breast surgery.


The CoolSculpting procedure is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical treatment that effectively reduces fat by freezing fat cells in a way that isn’t harmful to your skin or other tissues. It is among the most popular body contouring procedures we offer.
