Dr. Matarasso’s contributions to body contouring surgery over the past 15 years are both numerous and invaluable. He pioneered the combination of abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction (SAL) in a procedure known as abdominolipoplasty, and his Aesthetic Surgery Video Journal on the subject earned Outstanding Recognition from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Matarasso’s surgical and teaching excellence in body contouring has been recognized throughout the medical community as well as lay publications and patients alike. He has served on the Body Contouring Committee of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), and in 1999 he was named New York’s top cosmetic surgeon for body contouring by Town & Country Magazine in its annual listing of the country’s best plastic surgeons.
Our body contouring capabilities also include SmartLipo™, which is a laser lipolysis treatment that targets body fat using a laser. SmartLipo™ is intended for patients who do not have significant amounts of weight to lose, but rather desire sculpting to improve their contour or shape. Dr. Matarasso brings this experience in body contouring to patients at his Manhattan office in addition abdominoplasty, liposuction, combined abdominoplasty/liposuction (abdominolipoplasty), body contouring after massive weight loss / bariatric surgery, male body contouring, and body lift.
