How to Choose the Best Weight Loss Procedure for Your Body

Determining the best weight loss procedure for your body is a daunting task. Even with diet exercise, some of your fatty areas may seem to be unaffected and impossible to reduce. You know there’s a solution for your struggle, but what are the best weight loss solutions for your body? With all the dishonest weight loss programs on the market, it’s easy to be misled.

Trust the plastics expert! Read on to learn more about the best and the fastest weight loss solutions according to Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Rotatori, M.D., himself.

Best Surgical Weight Loss Procedures

There are certain things that should not be left to chance. Surgical fat reduction is absolutely one of them. Don’t risk your health, well-being, your investment, or your body to inexperienced or unproven fat reduction procedures. These safe, proven options offered by Dr. Scott Rotatori all assure you get the best, fastest, and the safest results you deserve.


One of our more popular surgical procedures, liposuction, safely, effectively, permanently, and instantly removes localized fat. While an overnight stay at a hospital is required following this procedure, it’s one and done. You won’t need multiple treatments to get the results you want.

Particularly effective at removing fat in the legs, abdomen, back, arms, face, and neck— liposuction provides more dramatic results than other surgical fat reduction procedures.

Because it is a surgical procedure, however, it has a longer recovery period. Most patients can expect downtime of up to six weeks. Liposuction also costs more than non-surgical weight reduction options, but is the fastest and most effective weight loss procedure for those with a high amount of excess, unwanted fat.

Abdominoplasty/ Tummy Tuck

Tummy tucks are also a widely favored fat reduction surgical procedure. Coupled with Liposuction, this procedure drastically improves your abdominal contour by tightening any excess stomach skin following a liposuction procedure.

The benefits of a tummy tuck include:

  • Instant fat removal
  • Fast results
  • Tight, smooth abdominal skin and muscles
  • Narrow waist
  • Minimal scarring

Tummy tucks are usually performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient setting and require an overnight stay in the hospital following the procedure. Patients can expect a downtime of approximately 10-20 days, though sports will not be comfortable for up to six weeks.

Body Lift

A total body lift is a surgical procedure coined by Dr. Rotatori aimed to slim your entire silhouette. Performed under general anesthesia, a body lift targets fat on the belly, abdomen, belly button, mid back, waist, thighs, and other problems areas depending on the patient’s needs.

A body lift is perfect for patients seeking a:

  • Smooth abdomen
  • Smoother, tighter buttocks
  • Removal of cellulite on the thighs
  • And complete removal of back rolls or excess skin

After the procedure patients can expect a downtime of approximately 10-20 days with no sports activity for six weeks. Like liposuction, this procedure is a one-time operation, meaning you won’t need to return for multiple treatments to achieve your desired look.

Best Fast Weight Loss Procedure without Surgery

Thanks to advances in biotechnology, non-surgical or minimally invasive alternatives to fat reduction surgery are more mainstream than ever. What used to be an exclusive Hollywood secret, body sculpting procedures have exploded in popularity all over the world.

Body sculpting treatments offer different modalities to target and eliminate unwanted fat cells through an external, rather than surgical, procedure. Perfect for those with small areas of stubborn localized fat deposits, body sculpting is the perfect weight loss solution for those seeking to avoid going under the knife.

Body Contouring by CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® is an innovative way to reduce fat without surgery. Currently, a treatment we offer in our Winter Park office, CoolSculpting Orlando is a great match for those who are close to their target weight but are having trouble reducing small, localized fatty spots on the hips, abdomen, thighs, arms, or neck.

This FDA-approved, safe treatment involves a special cryolipolysis device, which works to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells without affecting any surrounding tissues. Once the fat cells die, the body flushes them out through urine during the days and weeks following the procedure.

With CoolSculpting® there is little-to-no pain, only minor discomfort until you go numb. There is also little-to-no downtime, meaning you can return to your regular schedule almost immediately.

While every ‘body’ is different, final results are usually seen after approximately three months. For optimal results, we recommend our patients receive 2-3 treatments. Learn more about CoolSculpting Orlando here.
