Body Contouring in Boston – Liposuction, Tummy Tuck, Gynecomastia and More

Cosmetic surgery to improve shape and body contour benefits an increasing number of patients every year. Many women in the prime of life have had children and lost all tone in the abdomen, and despite hours at the gym can’t get a flat abdomen back. Other body contouring patients have never had the shape they want because of excess fatty deposits on their flanks, thighs or abdomen. Others have achieved a significant weight loss resulting in loose, redundant skin that no exercise program will help.

New England patients can find a solution for all of these problems at the Boston, Massachusetts-based plastic surgery center of Richard A. Bartlett, M.D. An acknowledged expert in body contouring procedures – including liposuction, tummy tuck, body sculpting, and gynecomastia – Dr. Bartlett can help you achieve your cosmetic surgery goals. With his meticulous care and precise surgical technique you can restore a sleek silhouette and reverse the effects of childbirth, weight loss, or bad luck with fat deposits.

Plastic Surgery for the Body

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

A tummy tuck is a body-contouring procedure that primarily involves removing excess fat and skin from the abdomen. The procedure also tightens the skin and the loose muscles for a complete contouring treatment.
A tummy tuck is ideal for patients who underwent significant weight loss. It is also ideal for women after their pregnancy.


A liposuction procedure is a very popular body-contouring procedure. It is very effective in removing stubborn excess fat from many parts of the body. It can remove unwanted excess fat in areas like the upper arms, chin, abdomen, neck, thighs, buttocks, back, and hips.

Body Contouring After Weight Loss

Significant weight loss will leave large amounts of loose skin in various areas of the body. This needs to be removed, and the remaining skin must be tightened. We provide comprehensive body contouring after weight loss. All areas with loose skin will be part of the procedure. Excess stubborn fat pockets can also be addressed.

Gynecomastia Treatment

It is not ideal for men to have large breasts. This condition still occurs due to factors such as weight gain, puberty, and medication side effects. Gynecomastia treatment is a body procedure that reduces breast tissues to make the chest area more masculine.
Ideal Candidates

Patients who are in good overall health and have realistic body goals are ideal candidates for body contouring. Good candidates want to get rid of their excess fat and tighten their skin and muscles.

Women can undergo body-contouring procedures if they are not pregnant or breastfeeding. Candidates must follow a healthy lifestyle with a proper diet and regular exercise to make results last.
