Get the Body You Deserve
New Horizons Center for Cosmetic Surgery puts your safety and comfort as our top priorities with any procedure at our Chicago’s North Shore clinic. Our body procedures include a broad range of surgical solutions to issues like body contouring, mommy makeovers, scars, excess fat, and weight loss correction.
These procedures can give you the figure you dream about but couldn’t achieve through diet and exercise. New Horizons Center for Cosmetic Surgery’s acclaimed surgeons carefully contour your selected physical features to give you a more pleasing shape matching your aesthetic ambitions more closely.
Many mothers reconstruct their abdomens and breasts with mommy makeovers, including several options depending on the severity of changes. New Horizons Center for Cosmetic Surgery can reconstruct the tummy using surgical means or a non-invasive treatment. We can use Thermage to shrink the skin using microwaves to contract collagen. Our clinic also offers CoolLipo Laser Liposuction for patients with a small amount of fat and a little outstretched skin. This option breaks up and eliminates fat cells while promoting skin tightening without scars. Our two more invasive procedures include a mini-abdominoplasty and a full tummy tuck.
Through augmentation, men and women can reshape and enlarge their buttocks or gluteal regions. This procedure involves transferring fat from one body area to the buttocks, or we can use implants as a permanent solution. While Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBLs) using fat transfer are popular, recent studies show this procedure may have an unusually high risk of death due to pulmonary embolus. Butt implants don’t have this elevated risk.
Many patients want a tummy tuck but fear the associated pain. Dr. Turowski is one of few plastic surgeons offering Exparel, a revolutionary pain reliever. Exparel is a non-narcotic local analgesic we administer directly to the surgical site to help control pain for 72 hours. After those three days, patients can generally control the reduced pain with NSAIDs, like Advil or Motrin. Using Exparel has also proven it helps patients use fewer narcotics while starting recovery.
If you have excessive pockets of fat and a proper skin tone, you may be a candidate for liposuction. This procedure is safe when our board-certified plastic surgeon performs it. However, removing very large amounts of fat from a patient can result in substantial blood loss and require an overnight hospital stay. But, infection is extremely uncommon.
Body Lifting & Weight Loss Correction Surgery (torso, arms, thighs)
Medical professionals originally designed body lifting to correct excess skin after a massive weight loss situation from gastric bypass surgery. However, after refining these techniques over time, the procedure became helpful to patients needing cosmetic surgery solutions. Surgeons can correct loose skin and contour deformities in selected cases using body lifting. A belt lipectomy is the most powerful example, which removes the spare tire around a patient’s waist and leads to a tighter abdomen while lifting the buttocks and thighs.
Renuvion® / J Plasma Minimally Invasive Skin-Tightening
We are very excited to offer this unique and minimally invasive skin tightening treatment to our patients. The Renuvion® system combines the unique properties of cold helium plasma with the efficiency of RF energy. Helium gas passes through an energized handpiece/electrode, creating cold helium plasma. Combined with RF energy, this results in tightening of the skin with controlled energy which safely heats the tissue and stimulates collagen production. It is now possible to safely obtain a youthful appearance and less sagging of skin almost anywhere in the body without large surgical incisions.
