Enhance Your Shape with the Best in Plastic Surgery

Shape Your Silhouette with High-Quality Plastic Surgery


Liposuction Options:  Did you know that liposuction has been the most common cosmetic plastic surgery procedure for several years in a row? Most patients who are looking into liposuction struggle with stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise? Of course, if there is a large amount of excess fat in multiple areas, the patients may need to consider weight loss options before having liposuction or other cosmetic procedures. Liposuction is a contouring procedure, not a weight loss procedure. If the patient is overweight, their liposuction results may only be a temporary solution, since they may regain their weight after surgery and reverse the outcome of their procedure. West Coast Plastic Surgery Center provides both traditional liposuction and other supplemental liposuction modalities (such as ultrasound, plasma, radiofrequency, and vibration) to make liposuction more efficient for overall shape improvement. The targeted unwanted fat cells in various areas, including the abdomen, thighs, hips, waist, buttocks, and knees. During your initial consultation, we determine the most suitable type of liposuction procedure based on your specific needs.

Advanced Liposuction Solutions - As the premier destination in body contouring treatments, at West Coast Plastic Surgery Center, we offer advanced liposuction solutions including:


VASER Liposelection: Utilizes ultrasound technology to emulsify and break down fat cells while preserving blood vessels and connective tissues for a gentler way to shape the body.

Renuvion:  Is a newest FDA approved technology to stimulate skin contraction after liposuction to treat laxity and improve collagen deficiency that comes with age and pregnancy.

BodyTite: Uses Radiofrequency assisted lipolysis to treat the deeper skin layers to help tightening in a minimally invasive approach. The device has internal and external sensors to reach the targeted temperature reading in a safe and controlled fashion.

High Definition Body Contouring: Is an advanced technique to shape the body into a natural athletic appearance, enhancing the shadows and projection of muscles and curves.

Power Assisted Liposuction: Uses a vibrating cannula to improve the efficiency of fat removal.

Micro Liposuction: is a technique to target specific small areas of fat under local anesthesia with a very thin cannula with minimal downtime.

Fat Transfer: as a natural way to contour the body, fat can be removed from areas it is not wanted or will not be missed and used for natural filler or sculpting tools to enhance the shape, fill in gaps or indentations, or add volume. Most common uses of fat are in facial rejuvenation, breast and buttock enhancement, and as a stem cell treatment.

These options are particularly beneficial for individuals already committed to healthy living.

How is Liposuction Performed: Once the plan for contouring is established. The patient’s photos are taken and marking are performed by the surgeon to identify the areas of excess fat that needs to be reduced. Then once the patient is sedated or the area of fat removal adequately numbed, the fat is treated with VASER or Radiofrequency device, and then suctioned out with a vacuum device or a syringe through tiny skin punctures. Then if needed, skin tightening energy is then applied with Renuvion to tighten and sculpt the skin and a snug compression garment is applied to help the skin shrink and shape around specific body areas. A very important part of liposuction procedure is the aftercare. Patients must undergo massage treatments to remove excess fluid and swelling for optimal results.

Brazilian Butt Lift: If you are looking to enhance the shape and size of the buttocks, Dr. Gorodisky specializes in Brazilian butt lifts (BBL) or his version of the procedure which we call West Coast Booty Lift. This procedure utilizes your body's own fat to enhance volume and definition in your buttocks. This surgery eliminates the need for implants and provides the added benefit of slimming down other areas from which the fat is removed, such as your abdomen, sides, back, or thighs. Unlike a regular BBL with a West Coast Booty Lift, the goal of fat transfer is not to make a very large buttocks (although some patients may request it) but to make a well contoured natural buttock while framing the hips and waist. Those who are concerned about the safety of BBL’s can be rest assured that with the West Coast Booty Lift technique, the fat is placed safely away from blood vessels, using tools and technology that avoids injection into the blood vessels.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): At West Coast Plastic Surgery Center, a slimmer waistline and a well-defined abdomen is achieved with Dr. Gorodisky’s tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty. This procedure involves tightening the skin of the abdomen, removing laxity, excess skin and shaping the waist to create a natural appearance. Dr. Gorodisky conceals the incisions around the bikini area. Dissolvable sutures are used, and a support garment is provided to minimize swelling and promote muscle support during your immediate recovery. Drains are used to eliminate accumulation of fluid and swelling under the skin and pain pump catheters are typically inserted to decrease the initial discomfort after surgery. Liposuction of the sides is commonly performed with the tummy tuck to create a harmonious abdominal shape. Rest and recovery is typically necessary for about two weeks, with restrictions on heavy lifting and strenuous physical activity for six weeks. Clear instructions are provided to optimize your healing, and follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor your progress. Sometimes patients may not qualify for a tummy tuck if they are not at their optimal weight. Having a tummy tuck while overweight may create a less optimal result and can increase the risk of complications and infections. During the consultation, we review the risks and benefits of a tummy tuck and create a plan that may include a weight loss program before the surgery.

Mommy Makeover: For those seeking a more comprehensive body rejuvenation post-pregnancy, a mommy makeover is an ideal solution. This typically involves addressing multiple areas of concern, particularly the breast and abdomen, and sometimes the labia. Common surgeries for a mommy makeover may include breast augmentation, reduction, or lift, a tummy tuck, and liposuction. And if the female labia has been stretched or damaged with birth, a labiaplasty may also be considered during the same trip to the operating room. Your specific health and cosmetic goals guide our recommendations to find the appropriate combination of surgical procedures and other treatments to beautifully contour your shape. It is best to wait until after the last pregnancy to have a mommy makeover in order to have a long lasting result.

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty): At West Coast Plastic Surgery Center, we offer arm lifts, or brachioplasty, to eliminate sagging in your upper arms and sculpt them for a more flattering appearance. Dr. Gorodisky ensures minimal incisions, preserving a natural and harmonious result.

Vaginal Rejuvenation with Labiaplasty: Our practice understands the importance of feeling good about every aspect of your body, including intimate areas. That's why we offer vaginal rejuvenation with labiaplasty, a procedure designed to address concerns about the look and feel of your inner and sometimes outer labia. Dr. Gorodisky carefully removes excess skin that may affect your choice of clothing or sexual comfort, ultimately improving your body image.
