Which Body Contouring Procedure is For You?

With A Warm, Caring Staff and Stunningly Natural Results,
Our Approach to Surgery is Anything but Plastic

Body contouring involves a surgical procedure that aims to reshape an area of the body. It can include procedures that remove skin as well as eliminate fat to reveal a new, slimmer appearance. Body contouring, especially after weight loss, is a specialty of Dr. Coan’s! His results have earned him numerous awards and distinctions both locally and nationally.  Read below to learn more about body contouring procedures at CARE Plastic Surgery, located in the Raleigh/ Cary area.

Vaser Liposuction

VASER is an acronym for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. This is an advanced form of liposuction that uses specialized ultrasound energy in the form of a vibrating tool to disrupt the bonds between fat cells, ultimately allowing them to be more easily removed. Vaser liposuction can be more precise than traditional liposuction, making it a better option for thinner patients who want to treat smaller, more detailed areas. It can also be used for larger areas in patients interested in fat grafting.


Liposuction removes excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body. Liposuction can slim your hips and thighs, flatten your abdomen, reshape your waist, and even eliminate a double chin. It works by inserting special surgical tools through a tiny entry point in the skin, suctioning away fatty tissue. Once the fat is removed, it won’t return as long as you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Liposuction is an excellent treatment if you are looking to bring out natural body contours and reveal muscle tone to create a more defined look!


BodyTite is an exceptional body contouring procedure that uses tiny incisions and radiofrequency energy to coagulate fat and tighten the skin. Unlike liposuction, BodyTite requires smaller incisions and offers additional skin tightening through gentle heating while liquefying and removing fat. This technique offers a superior experience versus more invasive surgical procedures that excise skin and leave scarring. BodyTite is an excellent option for patients looking for body contouring without long downtime or recovery periods and simply want slimmer, more toned results.
