Body Plastic Surgeries

There are times when even the strictest diet and rigorous exercise cannot get rid of stubborn excess fat and skin folds that can pile up in different parts of the body. At Palm Aesthetics Plastic Surgery Center in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, we have a specialized focus in body plastic surgeries and laser treatments to sculpt and enhance areas of the body that are resistant to more traditional means of weight loss. Healthy individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations are appropriate candidates for plastic surgery and laser procedures. Undergoing plastic surgery is a personal choice and should be done for yourself, not to fulfill other people’s desires. As elective procedures, plastic surgery and laser treatments are usually not covered by health insurance.

Our plastic surgery team is highly-trained and experienced in advanced plastic surgery and laser treatments to help you achieve a more toned and enhanced body, including the tummy, thighs, buttocks and arms. Contact Palm Aesthetics Plastic Surgery Center at (941) 822-8955 for more information on our plastic surgery services. We serve the Sarasota communities of Ana Maria, Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Palmetto, Parrish and Siesta Key.
