Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery
Smartlipo (Laser-Assisted Liposuction)
Smartlipo™ Laser-Assisted Liposuction is a new technique used in performing liposuction. This technique removes fat by literally melting the fat cells with a laser, while using a small cannula technique to reshape and sculpture your body and bring desired results. The laser-assisted method is gentler than traditional liposuction because the liposuction cannula doesn’t have to have as much force to move through the tissues. Because of this, there is usually less swelling and bruising with laser-assisted liposuction.
Unlike traditional liposuction, you get an effect of skin tightening along with fat removal. The laser heats the dermal layer, which in turn causes stimulation of the collagen matrix. More collagen equals a smoother result and skin tightening effect.
This procedure is done in-office using tumescent anesthesia. By using this method it allows for minimal blood loss and markedly faster recovery times. The patient is aware of the procedure and without the attendant risk of general anesthesia.
This makes achieving the body you want a whole lot easier. With this revolutionary laser lipolysis treatment you can finally take off those trouble spots dieting just won’t – like in your waist, hips, abdomen, thighs, arms, almost anywhere you desire!

Lipo-Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
Abdominoplasty or “Tummy Tuck” surgery remains the most requested elective procedure for those struggling with loose skin or flabby tummies and have not benefited from diet and exercise. This area is aesthetically more complex than just achieving a flat surface, which is why Dr. Schilling is now performing an advanced technique called LIPOABDOMINOPLASTY.
Liposuction, particularly our laser-assisted SmartLipo, allows us to sculpt and define the upper abdominal area, hips and waist creating the true shape you desire. Traditional tummy tuck surgeons often leave too much upper abdominal fat and fail to liposculpt the waist and hips which will typically create the “muffin-top deformity”. A “muffin-top” occurs when the stomach area is flat but the tissue over the hips bulges.
Lipoabdominoplasty can be performed in our office under local tumescent anesthesia and mild sedatives. This technique creates cost savings and is recognized for patient safety.
Dr. Schilling recommends having this procedure when you are finished with your child-bearing, though having children after the surgery poses no risk. In the contemporary lipo-abdominoplasty procedure, you will achieve markedly improved abdominal contour with the concomitant use of liposuction, muscle tightening and loose skin removal.

Many women are considering cosmetic surgery to make themselves feel better about themselves and to make them look better in their clothes.
You are considering breast augmentation surgery. This is a very common procedure, which is performed thousands of times every day across the United States. The procedure consists of making a pocket underneath the breast, between the backside of the breast and the front of the chest. We pay meticulous attention to the shape of this pocket since we try to make the breast look natural. The goal is to give a truly natural contour to the breast and the chest. With implantation, we can also incorporate procedures for elevating the breasts.
Dr. John Schilling can help you plan which surgical approach and implant is best suited to give you a more pleasing appearance. With our mini-incision approach and quick healing, you may wonder why you did not choose this procedure sooner.
An individualized approach to breast enlargement is essential to obtaining a good result. Here, at the Schilling Cosmetic Surgery Center, significant time is spent listening to the patient, educating the patient about their options, and reviewing the aftercare. Our results are determined by not only what the patient wants, but also what her tissues will allow. Since no two patients are the same, the key to a satisfied patient is good communication between the patient and the physician.
For your consultation, feel free to bring in photos of subjects with breasts that are too large, breasts that are too small, and breasts that they would like to have.

One of the natural processes of aging is thinning of the dermal layer of the skin. This loss of fat is what leads to sagging, wrinkled skin. Fat transfer is a solution that can help fill in those areas of loss, to restore skin to a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
During treatment, fat is removed from one area of your body, such as the abdomen, and then injected into another area of your body, such as the face. Fat transfer is commonly used tofill the cheeks, chin, and bags under the eyes. It has also been used to enhance the buttocks and sometimes the breasts.
It even helps to increase blood circulation by transferring a small concentration of stem cells. When performed properly, a large percentage of the injected fat cells will survive and remain permanently.

Cosmetic Labiaplasty (labia reduction surgery) involves surgically reducing and/or reshaping the female external genital structures. There are multiple reasons more and more women are requesting this procedure. They want to alleviate discomfort caused by large and/or thick labia, which often interfere with biking, working out, wearing tight fitting clothes. Many women want to enhance or improve appearance of “butterfly” or asymmetrical labia. Feeling good about how you look often builds self-confidence and self-esteem.
