At Coastal Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Cassidy Hinojosa offers numerous treatments for a wide variety of aesthetic and functional concerns relating to the body. Whether you are looking to improve the contours of your physique, alleviate intimate discomfort, or enhance your confidence following pregnancy or massive weight loss, Dr. Hinojosa is happy to help you attain the beautiful, natural-looking results you desire.
The muscles and skin of the abdomen can lose their firmness and elasticity due to several factors, including age, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and genetic predisposition. The result is often a drooping, distended abdominal region. Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, can help address these concerns by removing excess skin and tightening/repairing the loose musculature of the abdomen for a flatter, firmer appearance. For patients whose concerns are confined to the lower part of the abdomen, Dr. Hinojosa also offers a mini tummy tuck, which specifically targets the region between the belly button and upper pubic area.
Liposuction is a versatile procedure that can be used to eliminate pockets of stubborn fat in nearly any region of the body. Using small incisions, Dr. Hinojosa will insert a specialized cannula into the targeted area and gently guide it around as it breaks down and removes excess fat cells. Her preferred techniques include power-assisted liposuction (PAL) and suction-assisted liposuction (SAL) with a tumescent solution, though she can also utilize the VASER® liposuction method when indicated. In all cases, Dr. Hinojosa’s goal is to create a beautiful new contour that appears completely natural.
A mommy makeover refers to a customizable treatment plan designed to address cosmetic concerns of the abdomen and breasts commonly associated with pregnancy and breastfeeding. This combination procedure typically includes abdominoplasty and a breast lift, augmentation, or reduction—though it can also involve liposuction, thigh lift, arm lift, and/or various other body contouring procedures. As a mother herself, Dr. Hinojosa understands the aesthetic changes of pregnancy and the impact they can have on one’s confidence, and she will work closely with you to tailor a treatment plan that addresses your unique needs while helping restore your pre-pregnancy figure and self-esteem.
Sagging upper arms can result from a number of factors, including age, genetics, and major weight fluctuations. An arm lift, also called brachioplasty, is designed to improve the contours of the upper arms by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the remaining tissue. In some instances, liposuction may be utilized to further sculpt the upper arm region. Dr. Hinojosa can consult with you regarding your needs and preferences in order to determine the optimal approach for your particular case.
Labiaplasty is a procedure designed to treat enlarged or elongated tissue of the labia majora and/or labia minora. In addition to cosmetic enhancement, this treatment can help improve physical and psychological comfort when wearing tight-fitting clothing, exercising, or even engaging in intercourse. Dr. Hinojosa offers both the trim and wedge labiaplasty techniques, both of which can yield excellent outcomes for proper candidates. After assessing your unique case, she will recommend an approach that can most effectively achieve results that bring you renewed confidence and an enhanced quality of life.

Post-Bariatric Body Contouring
People who lose a large amount of weight often continue to struggle with excess skin, pockets of stubborn fat, and other concerns that compromise their physical comfort and aesthetic satisfaction. Post-bariatric body contouring refers to a customizable treatment plan designed to lift, firm, smooth, and tighten the body following massive weight loss. Most commonly this includes a combination of procedures such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, arm lift, thigh lift, breast reduction/lift, and/or facelift surgery—though Dr. Hinojosa can determine the most appropriate approach for you during a personal consultation.
A thigh lift is designed to improve the appearance of the thighs by eliminating loose, hanging skin and excess fat for a leaner, more toned upper leg contour. Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Hinojosa can perform treatment on the inner and/or outer thighs, and she may combine the procedure with liposuction for optimal aesthetic enhancement. In the end, thigh lift surgery can help you achieve legs that are slimmer and in better proportion to the rest of your body.
