If your body has changed as a result of pregnancy, weight fluctuations or the accumulated effects of gravity, diet and exercise may not give you the results you want. The solution for many men and women: body contouring from Chicago area plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Steinwald. From liposuction to Mommy Makeovers, Dr. Steinwald offers a full range of body sculpting procedures to give you the physique you desire. Many of the options involve "excisional" techniques, directly removing skin and fat, often with the help of liposuction.

Meet Dr. Steinwald

Paul M. Steinwald, M.D., is one of the few plastic surgeons in Chicago who is double-board certified in both plastic and general surgery. Read On

  • Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) – This powerfully transforming procedure directly excises redundant fat and skin from the lower abdomen, tightens up the underlying framework, rejuvenates the belly button, and can be performed without drains for patients otherwise close to their ideal weight. Dr. Steinwald's most frequently performed cosmetic procedure is abdominoplasty. Chicago area men and women love his beautiful results!
  • Liposuction – One of the most popular procedures in Illinois, liposuction is ideal for patients with relatively isolated areas of undesirable fatty fullness (often in the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, inner knees or chin areas) and good-to-excellent skin tone otherwise. Dr. Steinwald offers standard or power-assisted liposuction at Lake Forest Hospital, ultrasound-assisted liposuction at HealthSouth Surgery Center in Libertyville, or VASER® LipoSelection at the 900 North Michigan Avenue facility in downtown Chicago.
  • Post-Weight Loss Surgery – Patients who have undergone massive weight loss, either through dieting/exercise or gastric bypass surgery, are often left with significant amounts of redundant or even hanging tissue, best addressed through breast lifting, extended abdominoplasty, body lifting, arm lifting and/or thigh lifting. Often two of these procedures can be combined for appropriate patients, but often these involved transformations are staged.
  • Mommy Makeovers – Dr. Steinwald has been one of the biggest proponents of combination surgery for healthy women who wish to address more than one problem area (often resulting from pregnancy) at a single surgery, to help them save on both recovery time and operative costs. Often these "Mommy Makeovers" involve both an abdominoplasty and a breast procedure, occasionally with liposuction or facial rejuvenation procedures as well.

Oftentimes body contouring procedures are combined with breast enhancement to re-contour the entire frontal area of your body. As a respected breast enhancement surgeon in Chicago, Dr. Steinwald has been a Chicago-area pioneer in the development and performance of these safe and streamlined "combination procedures," as featured in the cover story of Suburban Woman North Shore in late 2008.
