Body Contouring Surgeries

tummy-tuck-before-after-2In general body procedures usually involve removal of redundant and sagging parts (e.g. Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty), removal of excess fat (e.g. Suction Assisted Lipoplasty or Liposuction), or reshaping of deformed parts (e.g. Repair of Post-Pregnancy Muscle Laxity/Diastasis Recti)).  These procedures are usually required to correct sagging, deformity, and excess fat accumulation usually as a result of unhealthy eating habits, multiple pregnancies, and inadequate exercise.  Of course genetics play a very important role in the development of such problems, but the acquired factors listed are the main causes, especially in the current life-style that the society has gotten used to.  As can be seen from the list of procedures, there are a wide variety of procedures that individuals need, ranging from a Modified (Mini-) Tummy Tuck,to Extended Vertical/Horizontal (Fleur-de-lys) Body Lift.  A specific category of these procedures involves patients who have developed redundancy (sagging) in different parts of the body as a result of “Massive Weight Loss (MWL)”due to for example a LapBand.  Often times breast and body procedures are combined and multiple procedures are carried out in one sitting.

Dr. Abrams was very professional when I first had my consultation with him. I felt very comfortable with him and decided to proceed with my breast enlargement using saline and tummy tuck. I was scared at first but he made feel secure and calm before the surgery. The surgery was quick and it was not very comfortable in the first few weeks due to fresh surgery but I felt better because I could call   2 May 2013 by: krista2012 Beverly Hills, CA http://www.realself.com/review/beverly-hills-ca-mommy-makeover

Dr Abrams changed my life. The results are ten times better than I could have imagined. Last May I got breast implants and liposuction. Dr Abrams helped me get my younger, skinnier, sexier body back. Dr Abrams achieved the results he promised and more. I recommend him to anyone who is even considering plastic surgery.

When I wanted to get a facelift to look younger, I had no idea who to go to. I heard about Dr. Abrams through one of my relatives. After my facelift, I no longer feel self conscious about the way I look. I look and feel so much younger, and my husband is really happy with the whole process too. Dr. Abrams is a miracle worker, and I will go back, to him if I need anything else done in the future. I will also tell everyone I know about his services, and how well he completes his work.

I cannot thank Dr. Abrams enough for all his care and expertise throughout my surgery experience! I went through breast augmentation and rhinoplasty surgeries at the same time. Pre-op, Dr. Abrams made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions and concerns, so I went through the process with no worries. I let Dr. Abrams make the decisions on what he thinks is best of me and I am happy with   30 Apr 2014 by: BeautifulInnOut Beverly Hills, CA http://www.realself.com/review/beverly-hills-ca-breast-augmentation-brest-aug-and-rhino-surgery

Dr. Abrams performed a rhinoplasty surgery and fixed a lip deformation from a car accident that I had about 6 months prior. Dr. Abrams was extremely professional and thorough throughout this unfortunate process. After consultations with others, I believe he delivered the best possible results and is very honest. He truly cares about his patients. 12 Jun 2013 by: ballgeier Beverly Hills, CA http://www.realself.com/review/beverly-hills-ca-nose-surgery-great-doctor

Aside from Dr. Abrams's wonderfulness, his staff is terrific too! Everyone is so professional and caring. I always felt "special" when I spoke with anyone at his office. The nurses at the surgery center were kind, professional, and caring people. I had a perfect experience and a perfect outcome. I am so happy!! I couldn't be happier with my breast implants and lift! The experience was perfect!   6 May 2013 4Self Costa Mesa http://www.realself.com/review/costa-mesa-ca-breast-augmentation-love-dr-abrams

I recently had my nose done with Dr. Abrams and had such a wonderful experience with him.  He is so professional, kind, and honest.  He listened to all my concerns and made sure that I was 100% comfortable with my decision to have surgery before going through with it.  He is not the type of guy who will push you to have surgery for his benefit; he wants to make sure that his patients are totally comfortable and happy with their decision.  He also was so helpful in giving me all the information I needed way in advance, so I would be completely prepared for the surgery and know what to expect.  And after the surgery, he made sure to follow up with me frequently to make sure that I was doing OK. And besides just his hospitality and level of professionalism, the surgery went SO AMAZINGLY WELL!!!  I am SOOOOO happy with my nose, it looks so beautiful and natural, to the point that all my friends and family just says they notice something different but can’t exactly tell what.  Because it’s so natural, it doesn’t look like a fake, overly tiny, Hollywood nose.  It’s just perfectly natural, unique, and fits my face.  It’s obvious Dr. Abrams really looks at each of his patients individually and doesn’t have a “formula” for all the noses he does, but instead, makes sure that each time he does surgery on someone, it’s individualized to fit their exact features and needs. Overall, I was EXTREMELY HAPPY with my experience with Dr. Abrams, he’s truly a one of a kind physician and I would 100% RECOMMEND HIM to anyone who is interested in any type of plastic surgery. 11/7/2010 Amelie L.

Dr. Abrams did my breast augmentation and lift in September 2010.  I trust him completely and recommend him highly! Dr. Abrams is a talented and gifted surgeon.  He is triple or quadruple certified and you will be hard pressed to find a more qualified surgeon.  I did my homework and I would never settle for less!

I had a tummy tuck, intense breast lift with implants all at the same time with Dr Abrams and I could not possibly be any happier. I did not have one single problem, everything went smoothly. I have since referred my family and friends with him and not one single person has been unhappy. A quick google search will give you all his updated information. 10/25/2010 Jackie F Reseda, CA

I have to tell you, as someone skeptical about how much my genetically droopy neck could be fixed (and I mean, hit me with your best shot from both sides of my family with the double chins), I cannot believe the outcome from Dr. Abrams at GIAA (Genetic Institute for Anti-Aging). I had a neck lift. Sheer brilliance. It’s a right angle not a slope. He should get a Nobel prize. (Also had some love handle removal which is amazing too!) PLUS, everyone in the office is polite, helpful, and, get this — efficient! Completely on the ball. Ready for your appointment, calling with updates and to see how you’re feeling post-op. Every doctor I met with on the day of surgery was totally nice, comforting, professional. The facility is SPOTLESS. I honestly could not give this place a better review. 100% happy. Anytime you have someone alter your appearance, it’s scary, but I have to say, if you want to have something done, it’s worth going to GIAA (highly recommend Dr. Ruben B. Abrams). I flew in from N. Calif. for it, and don’t regret it for a second. 1/22/2009 Ash E San Francisco, CA

Dear Dr Abrams,

My Daughter and I got home safe and sound a day after you have removed the tubes. I felt so good that we made an attempt to reschedule our flight home from 21st to 6th and we did so.

We still are shocked that how smoothly everything happened, that I could travel 20 hours back home, only six days after my Tummy Tuck surgery!!! As I said it before you are an Artist. I do not know how to thank you enough with words, the fact that we traveled 3000 miles from up North, for the second time to be treated by you , is a testimony that all of us in my family have strong faith in you as a human being and trust your expertise as a professional.

My husband and I trusted you once before with our daughter’s nose (which resulted in manifesting her beauty), and once again with me with this stunning result. I have to confess that I was terrified for my surgery away from home, but now I know I have wasted my time being so worried. Now I confidently encourage my friends who have the same problem to go ahead and book appointment for their surgery and needless to say that you are the only Plastic surgeon that I recommend to them.

My husband is expressing his appreciation and both of us invite you to our humble home in Upstate New York for an opportunity to express our appreciation with my ”somewhat good cooking”

J. Okay.. good cooking J.

Dear Dr. Abrams, Considering I have known you for the past nine years, I feel this letter has been long overdue. It is my hope that it finds you in good spirit and delivers a message of appreciation and thanks for the superior care and service you have been so generously providing to my family, friends, and myself. We love you, Dr. Abrams. Keep up the good work. Truly Yours, N.K. Aside from possessing the best techniques and knowledge, Dr. Abrams, you posses something much superior that has been marking our souls and shall remain in our hearts forever: Your genuine care and honesty. Doctors with your qualities are almost like endangered species. They are few and far in between. I wish the world would come up with a plan to preserve you guys. 08/19/2010 N.K.

I recently had surgery with Dr. Abrams. I have to say that my experience from start to finish was fantastic! I am very happy with my results, and I appreciate Dr. Abrams and his caring staff for making this such a great experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
