Body Contouring Surgery Procedures

Dr. Marucci performs a comprehensive range of procedures designed to improve the contours of the body, including:

Breast Augmentation

Brest augmentation surgery is ideal for anyone who desires larger breasts. Whether you have naturally small breasts, or have experienced a change in breast size due to pregnancy or weight loss, breast augmentation will help enhance your appearance and your confidence. Dr. Marucci adds volume to the breasts with implants, which can be placed either under or over the muscle. Dr. Marucci will work with you to determine the exact shape, size, and feel that you want, and then recommend the best type of implant to achieve your ideal outcome. Incisions will be made either underneath the breast at the crease, around the areola, or under the armpit. The incision location will be determined, in part, by the type of implant employed.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery may be necessary if the breasts are disproportionately large for your body. Genetics, weight gain, or pregnancy can contribute to overly large breasts. In addition to being a cosmetic issue, large breasts can cause health concerns, such as back or neck pain. Dr. Marucci will meet with you to discuss your goals and concerns, and recommend the right course of action. During the breast reduction procedure, excess skin, fat, and tissue are removed and the breasts are lifted and tightened. Incisions are made around the areola, down towards the crease of the breast, and there will likely be some visible scarring resulting from the procedure.

Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery helps to rectify droopy or saggy breasts caused by genetics, pregnancy, or aging. Dr. Marucci performs breast lift surgery to lift and tighten the breasts, so they look naturally youthful. The type of incision will depend on whether you have moderate or severe drooping. Dr. Marucci will inquire about your ideal size and shape, and will examine your specific case to determine which type of breast lift procedure is right for you. Scarring should be very minimal once you have completely healed. If you are seeking increased volume as well as elevation, a breast lift can be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation.

Abdominoplasty (“Tummy Tuck” Surgery)

Abdominoplasty, also known as a “tummy tuck”, can give you the firm, flat abs that you long for. Genetics, pregnancy, age, and weight fluctuations can contribute to flabby abs that may stick out more than you would like. Even if you are of a normal weight, you may still have a problematic tummy pouch. When diet and exercise aren’t enough to tone your belly, Dr. Marucci can perform a tummy tuck to eliminate excess fat and skin. Incisions will be made at the lower part of the stomach, near the pubic area, and can be placed inconspicuously below where undergarments or your swimsuit would sit. Dr. Marucci will examine your case and discuss your goals in order to recommend the best route for you.


Liposuction is an excellent method of removing excess fat deposits that exist between the muscle and the skin. Fat is suctioned from the body using a small, yet powerful device that is inserted through various incisions. Dr. Marucci can effectively improve the contours of the body through liposuction surgery, giving you a slimmed down, beautiful appearance. The procedure is often performed on the thighs, legs, ankles, arms, back, abs, buttocks, face, or neck. Dr. Marucci will meet with you to discuss your aesthetic objectives, and determine if liposuction surgery is right for you.
