body-contouring-portland-orA gorgeous summer body starts now. If you want to look your best in a bikini this summer, come in now and ask about body contouring. We can help you remove stubborn fat pockets, reshape and refine your body, and finally achieve the look you want. When a good diet and exercise isn’t enough, body contouring can make all the difference.

Let’s take a look at some of your body contouring options at the Waldorf Center for Plastic Surgery.


For a better body shape without surgery, ask us about CoolSculpting. The Waldorf Center is one of the leading CoolSculpting providers in the Northwest and we offer complimentary consults with our clinical staff to explore if CoolSculpting is right for you. This revolutionary procedure uses cold to freeze fat cells. Over time your body eliminates these destroyed fat cells naturally and the result is fat loss. This procedure is ideal for targeting stubborn fat in specific areas. It is a great option for a tummy bulge, love handles, bra back fat, saddlebags, etc. Results start to appear about 3 weeks after treatment with continued improvement for up to 6 months. You should see good results by about 2 months after treatment.

CoolSculpting requires no downtime, no incisions, and no surgery.


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat in the treatment areas. It is not a weight loss treatment, but rather a way to remove fat from specific problem areas. Patients often use liposuction to improve the appearance of the neck, chin, waist, abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, ankles, etc. We offer a variety of liposuction treatments including traditional liposuction, ultrasonic assisted liposuction, and laser assisted liposuction. We can help you determine which procedure is the best for your situation.

Liposuction will require some downtime. Most patients take at least a week off from work (some need 2 weeks or more). You’ll need to avoid strenuous activities for 4-6 weeks. The benefit of liposuction is the ability to really shape and refine an area. Liposuction offers impressive, lasting results.

Surgical Lifting

Another option for body contouring is a surgical lift or tuck, like a breast lift, arm lift, tummy tuck, etc. These procedures don’t just remove fat; they also remove excess skin (and in some cases tighten the muscles). A lift or tuck may be needed after massive weight loss or pregnancy to fully restore the body’s shape. If you need a surgical lift, we can help you understand what to expect from the procedure and your recovery period.

What to Expect from Body Contouring

Body contouring is highly customized. The procedures selected for you will be determined by the specific needs of your body. For some patients one procedure on its own will provide sufficient results while others may need a combination of treatments. Some procedures can be performed together while others may need separate surgeries. The best way to learn about your body contouring options is to come in and have a consultation. We can examine your body, provide advice, and create a customized plan to achieve your best look. Call us today and discover your options! 503.646.0101
