It is often said, “I want firmer, thinner thighs; a flat, tight tummy; and sexier legs and arms. I exercise daily and have dieted for years, but I have areas of fat that just won’t go away.” No matter how conscientious you are with your diet and exercise, excess fat in certain places just won’t budge. Those annoying bulges become a source of frustration. Dr. Mark Jewell and Dr. Alireza “Reza” Najafian perform body contouring procedures in Eugene to help women and men from Salem, Bend, Medford, and other nearby Oregon cities target their trouble spots.
Choose a Leader in Body Contouring
Dr. Jewell and Dr. Najafian are leaders in body contouring. Dr. Jewell is one of the co-developers of VASER® ultrasonic lipoplasty and is a consultant for Ethicon EndoSurgery’s Harmonic Scalpel. He and Dr. Najafian offer a wide range of body contouring procedures to contour the abdomen region, bra rolls and posterior waist, the arms and legs, the face and neck, and lower body lifts following massive weight loss. All body contouring procedures have an element of risk associated with them. It is important to understand what is involved with each of them as they relate to your particular needs and the risks and benefits that are involved. After your consultation, Dr. Jewell or Dr. Najafian discuss their recommendations for body contouring surgery and what is involved with a decision to undergo these procedures. Each patient’s needs for improvement in body contouring require an individualized approach. Patients considering these procedures are advised that if they are closer to their normal body weight or normal body mass index (BMI), they will be better candidates than obese individuals.

Dr. Jewell and Dr. Najafian combine artistry and surgical expertise to create customized results tailored to each patient's unique needs.
Body Contouring Options
Both fashion and our active lifestyles have placed increased importance on personal appearance. We are conscious of the benefits of weight control and physical fitness on health and body image. Consequently, more interest is directed toward surgery to improve one’s figure. Abdominoplasty, often called a tummy tuck, can remove excess skin that remains even for people who exercise regularly and diet.
Liposuction has been a major advance in the field of body contouring. No recent development in plastic surgery in the last several years has caused as much interest as liposuction. This process allows changes in body contour by reducing and reshaping deposits of fat. It is not a treatment for generalized obesity, but a technique for body contour improvement in selected patients who are near their normal weight and have bothersome localized fat deposits.
In addition to VASER Lipoplasty and all forms of abdominoplasty procedures, our surgeons offer lower body lift procedures. These are an extensive form of body contouring designed to lift and tighten the lower body on both the front and back sides of individuals who have lost large amounts of weight through diet and weight loss surgery. These procedures are performed with a 1 or 2-day hospital stay.
Our surgeons perform arm lift surgery, technically called brachioplasty, to reduce upper arm fullness and tighten loose skin. This operation is a combination of liposuction and redundant skin excision. This procedure offers patients another option in upper extremity contouring that can improve the appearance of the upper arm, armpit, and trunk when necessary.
Fat grafting involves surgically harvesting or collecting fat from one area of the body and transplanting or injecting it into the recipient site such as the face or breasts. Fat is collected with liposuction. The fat cells (stem cells) are placed in a centrifuge and then transferred with small blunt needles called cannulas into the recipient site. Fat is a great filler as it comes from the individual and there is no risk of reaction or rejection.
