"Dr. Sorensen’s work is AMAZING! I trusted his extensive expertise, and I could not be more pleased!"- J. / Google / Jan 01, 2018
"Dr. Sorensen is a 5 Star Dr. all the way from start to finish. I cannot express how pleased I am with Dr.Sorensen and his artistic abilities when it comes to sculpting the human body. I am 34 years old and chose Dr. Sorensen to perform my abdominoplasty surgery on 6/23/18. It’s been 2 weeks since my procedure and my stomach looks amazing, i feel great and all in all it has been an easy process, little pain, minimal downtime and remarkable results. I have felt so great, that the most challenging part about this whole procedure has been trying to not do so much because I feel so well. I have 4 children, have had 3 C-Sections and a hysterectomy. I was told the pain would be comparable to my C-sections and hysterectomy, I must say, for me this holds zero truth. In comparison to pain and recovery time, I would rate my pain, from my abdominoplasty a 2 compared to my C-sections and hysterectomy being a 10. However he provided me with adequate pain care and I believe that has helped immensely w/controlling my pain. I felt a high level of comfort from the second I met Dr.Sorensen, I believe he truly cares about each individual patient and their desired results. What I appreciate most about Dr.Sorensen is his professionalism, knowledge and confidence in his abilities as a Plastic Surgeon. You cannot go wrong in choosing him to do your work, and can say I am beyond pleased with my results. I am extremely blessed that Dr.Sorensen was the one that did my procedure and I can honestly say I have ZERO regret. I did my homework on Dr.Sorensen and took the time to read every single review others had left regarding their experience w/him and can tell you he is a trusted Plastic Surgeon with a remarkable reputation and education. He is worth the wait and worth every penny! Thank you Dr.Sorensen for turning my dream into a reality and for giving me results I never could’ve dreamed of having, results I thought my stomach wasn’t capable of!"- C.N. / Google / Jul 06, 2018
"Dr. Sorensen is a fantastic surgeon. I had a TT 3/14/18 after a lifetime of weight gain and weightloss. I never thought I would see the day where i could comfortably wear a thin white t shirt without having to wear spanx. His work is excels, he is precise and efficient!. I have a very thin line for my incision and its lightening with each passing day. He gave me a cute belly button and was very helpful during my recovery. I recommend Dr. Sorensen to anyone who listens. My only regret is not getting BL and arm reduction during my TT procedure. You will not be disappointed. Additonally, the girls in the office are so great. Val has injected my lips twice and done a great job, Harmony is wonderful and so sweet. They are very patient with questions. I love my results, thank you!"- I.G. / Google / Jun 01, 2018

Body contouring surgery can reshape, tighten and rejuvenate almost any area of the body, creating a newer, sleeker contour. In many cases, liposuction will be included during surgery. Common areas addressed include the neck, arms, breasts, abdomen, hips, buttocks, knees and thighs. During the initial consultation, the areas of the body that cause concern will be assessed and a surgery plan will be discussed. Some procedures may be combined into one surgery. For some individuals, in order to achieve the desired results, multiple surgeries may need to be staged over time.
All body contouring procedures are performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The duration of the surgery and the time spent in the hospital will depend on what surgery was performed, as well as how many were combined. While the recovery can be somewhat trying, the majority of patients feel that a new, tighter body is worth it. Patients will notice marked improvement with sagging features, as well as see a smoother skin appearance. Patients should adhere to a healthy lifestyle, and limit sun exposure so the surgical results are not compromised.’
The price for a body contouring procedure will fluctuate. The final cost will be based on the extent of the surgery, how many techniques were combined and how many days are required in the hospital. During the initial consultation, a tailored surgical plan will be created and the costs will be outlined.

Body Contouring FAQS
How Many Procedures?
During the consultation, the surgeon will assess the overall physical health of the patient to determine what procedures should be performed, and how many in a single setting. Depending how many body parts will be addressed, as well as the extent of the surgeries, certain procedures will be grouped together. In many cases, the upper body will be addressed in one surgery and the lower in another. Staging the procedures helps to reduce the risk of complications such as blood loss and infection, as well as minimize the length of time it takes to recover.
Weight Loss and Timing?
Body contouring is very common among weight loss patients. Most plastic surgeons will want the patient to be at or as close to their goal weight as possible. Patients who find it difficult to lose additional pounds because of loose and hanging skin can usually move forward with a skin reduction or body contouring procedure. This takes them over the “hump” and allows them to become more mobile which helps lose the final pounds.
Same as Mommy Makeover?
In some degree, yes. A mommy makeover simply groups together certain body contouring procedures to address the most common body parts affected by pregnancy. This usually entails the breast, abdomen, hips and buttocks. While body contouring itself can apply to many other areas on the body, a mommy makeover typically only addresses the areas affected by pregnancy, childbirth and nursing.
What About Scarring?
Some body contouring procedures will result in scarring. However, the surgeon will make every effort possible to minimize these scars. In most cases, they will be hidden under bathing suit garments and within the natural folds of the skin. Some scarring may be evident, but these will lighten over time. Most patients feel the results of a body contouring procedure are worth it and the scars become secondary.
