Weight Loss Surgery patients describing their heart felt journey

" I have looked up / studied about 20 surgeons and visited about 7 of them for a consultation, but I have to say hands down not one of them could come close to Dr. Mehta and his work !  " 
- Samira W.

TESTIMIONIALS

Dr. Mehta and his staff are Phenomenal!! I chose Dr. Mehta as my surgeon because of all the wonderful things I heard about him and his staff. I could not have been more satisfied with the care I received before and after surgery. I would recommend the Mehta Bariatric Center to anyone and everyone considering surgery. This was the best decision I ever made. Thanks to Dr. Mehta and staff! They have changed my life forever!! "  
- Michelle H.

Non-Surgical Weight Loss

An individualized plan is created which includes proper nutritional guidance and prescription strength medications, if needed, including the latest & extremely effective GLP-1a medications: 

These meds may be covered by insurance. 

This program can be combined with liposuction for superior results targeting fat loss from stubborn areas.  

Immediate Office & Telehealth appointments available.

COST: $100/month with insurance
            $250/month without insurance (includes meds)

Tucks, Lifts & Skin Removal

TUMMY TUCKS, MINI-TUCKS & BODY LIFTS

Tummy Tuck / Mini-tuck / Body Lift / Thigh Lift

Mini-Tucks, Tummy Tucks and Lower Body Lifts all remove excess skin. The difference is in how much is removed and if muscles are tightened underneath.  Often, fat transfer is added with these cases to fill out the buttocks. 
  • Remove excess skin
  • ​Tighten underlying abdominal muscles
  • ​Liposuction for optimal results
  • Can be combined with Fat Transfer to buttocks, hips or breasts
  • Mini-tuck can be done awake under local anesthesia

PANNICULECTOMY

Tummy Tuck XL

Those with a large apron of skin and fat require something more than  a traditional tummy tuck. Removing a large amount of skin and fat drastically improves the patient's quality of life. During the surgery, then the underlying muscles are tightened treating a smaller waist line, and liposuction is performed to create some curves and bring about optimal aesthetic results.  

Since we do bariatric surgery, our entire team is used to operating on heavier patients.  It only makes sense why we have heavier patients who are automatically attracted to our practice, and seek us out for skin removal and larger procedures.

The panniculectomy portion may be covered by insurance, at least partially, if it is considered medically necessary.   

ARM LIFT / BACK LIFT

Arm Lift & Back Lift

Loose skin anywhere will not respond to exercise. There are generally 2 options. The first being liposuction which can remove the fat and tighten the skin somewhat. This option is enough for some. The second, and more definitive option is to remove loose on the back and arms like photos shown here. 
  • Surgically removes skin on arms and back
  • ​Best treatment for excessive loose skin which would not contract adequately with liposuction alone

Awake Lipo-Sculpting & Fat Transfer

WOMEN'S BODY SCULPTING 

Our sculpting method employs a technology that is safer, more gentle, and superior to conventional liposuction and fat transfer techniques. Every procedure is conducted with you fully conscious, ensuring a process that is safe, mild, nearly devoid of pain, and promotes a swift healing period.

What our patients are saying...

" I have looked up & studied about 20 Plastic Surgeons 
and visited about 7 of them for a consultation, but I have to say hands down not one of them could come close to Dr. Mehta and his work ! His entire team is the best. They made me feel like a part of their family, with the way they cared for me from the minute I walked through the door. Dr. Mehta does the most phenomenal tummy tucks and liposuction in the tri-state !!!! His incisions are so low and thin, I couldn't believe it with my own eyes. Visiting Dr. Mehta and his team was the best decision I have made in my life. My new improved body looks perfect, and allowed me to regain my confidence back! Thank you Dr. Mehta for making me feel so comfortable, for caring and making me look fabulous!!!!! " 

Samira W.
" I consulted with 3 other Bariatric Surgeons 
before meeting with Dr. Mehta. None of them made me feel the confidence and security that Dr. Mehta portrayed. He even gives out his personal cell phone number to his patients. Now, I never met a physician who does that. This has been the best decision that I could have ever made for myself."
