Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
You’ve put in the work; you’re eating healthier, exercising more, and losing the weight. At Cape Cod Plastic Surgery, we help you complete your total body transformation with an Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck. By working through an incision at the base of the abdomen, we can tighten your rectus muscles and remove excess fat and skin, providing you with a flatter abdomen. The belly button is preserved and made smaller. This is often combined with back liposuction to remove the “love handles”. The amount of planned skin and fat removal will direct the location of the procedure- either in our in office accredited private surgical suite under sedation or in Cape Cod Hospital under general anesthesia with an overnight stay.
Belt Lipectomy (Lower Body Lift)
A belt lipectomy (lower body lift or torsoplasty) may be recommended by Dr. Fater to remove circumferential fat and skin excess. This is commonly done following considerable weight loss by the patient resulting in profound truncal skin and fat ptosis (droopiness). This procedure is a posterior extension of the abdominoplasty procedure. A lateral thigh and buttock lift is often a result of a belt lipectomy. This is performed under general anesthesia at Cape Cod Hospital and requires a one or two day hospital stay.
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
For a more youthful look, a blepharoplasty may be right for you. This procedure removes skin excess in the upper and/or lower eyelids. Excess fat can also be removed from the lids at that time to eliminate bulging fat pockets around the eyes. Occasionally the excess lower lid fat can be repositioned to correct the commonly encountered “tear trough deformity”. If your visual fields are impaired secondary to skin excess, medical insurance may cover upper lid blepharoplasty. This surgery can be performed in our private in-office accredited surgical suite under sedation, or in Cape Cod Hospital. Blepharoplasty is frequently combined with endoscopic brow lifting to rejuvenate the upper face.
At Cape Cod Plastic Surgery, we offer surgical and non-surgical body contouring procedures. Every patient’s body is different and will require a different method to achieve desired results. Contact Dr. Marc Fater today at Cape Cod Plastic Surgery to learn more about our body contouring options.
Exilis treatment – Cape Cod Plastic Surgery is at the forefront of body contouring technology. That is why we are proud to offer Exilis for patients interested in a nonsurgical method to both reduce fat and tighten skin. Exilis is an FDA approved radiofrequency device which targets and heats up fat cells. Once treated, the fat cells shrink and at the proper settings, skin may tighten as well.
Cool Sculpting is a hugely popular fat reduction technique which noninvasively delivers controlled cooling to fat cells. The cooled fat crystallizes and dies. Your body then eliminates this unwanted tissue. Final results are obtained at 1- 3 months.
EmSculpt is a noninvasive technique to build muscle. It can tone abs and give you that “6 pack” you’ve been chasing. It can also perform a noninvasive buttock lift by toning your gluteal muscles. The Emsculpt machine utilizes high frequency electromagnetic stimulation to induce muscle contractures in the treated areas. The treatment involves four sessions over a two week period.
Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
When diet and exercise alone cannot improve the appearance of your upper arms, a brachioplasty may be the solution. An ellipse of fat and skin can be removed, leaving a scar inside the arm, next to your torso. This is generally performed under sedation in our private accredited in-office surgical suite. This commonly offered for patients after profound weight loss results in hanging upper arm skin.
If you want larger breasts, a breast augmentation with implants may be for you. This procedure is usually performed in our accredited in-office private surgical suite under sedation. All sizes are available in both saline and silicone implants. The incisions can be placed under the breasts in the inframammary crease, the armpit or around the edge of the areola. Implants can be placed under or over the muscle depending on the patients desires and/or anatomy. Only smooth surface implants are used. Most woman are back to work in a week to ten days
Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
Pregnancy, weight gain and aging all contribute to breast ptosis or sagging. A breast lift (mastopexy) can remove the skin excess which is causing the sagging while preserving the breast volume. The scars are inconspicuously placed. Breast lifts are occasionally combined with breast augmentation to tighten the skin envelope while adding volume. These procedures are commonly performed in our private in-office accredited surgical suite under sedation. Patients can return to work in a week.
Women with large breasts often suffer from a variety of chronic issues including back pain, neck strain, shoulder strap furrows and submammary rashes and infections. Their breast size may prevent them from enjoying physical activities or finding clothes that fit properly. Breast reduction removes excess breast tissue while leaving a “perkier” result with inconspicuous scars. Nipple sensitivity and the ability to breast feed are typically preserved. The surgery is performed at Cape Cod Hospital under general anesthesia. Most patients do not require an overnight stay. Health insurance usually covers the cost of the procedure. This would be determined preoperatively. Most women resume their usual activities within 10 days.
A brow lift can rejuvenate an upper face which may have dropped over time. The descent of the eyebrows contributes to possible visual field loss as well as creating the perception of aging. Elevation of the brows can reverse this descent. The forehead is endoscopically (via small incisions with a camera attached to a long tube) lifted from behind the hairline. This is commonly performed in our accredited private in-office surgical suite under sedation. Recovery is generally under one week.
Chemical Skin Peeling
Rejuvenate the look of your skin with a chemical skin peel from Cape Cod Plastic Surgery. Chemical peels exfoliate the skin, help soften wrinkles, improve sun-damaged skin, and even skin pigmentation. Chemical peels at Cape Cod Plastic Surgery are done without sedation or anesthesia. Begin seeing results in as little as 5 days!
Chin augmentation at Cape Cod Plastic Surgery is a procedure performed in our in-office accredited surgical suite under sedation. A chin implant of silicone or polyethylene can be inserted via an intraoral or submental approach to add projection to the chin. This leaves negligible scarring and will aesthetically improve your profile. The surgery takes one hour. Patients are back to work in less than 1 week.
Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)
Children are often a ridicule of often what can be projected. Reshape or pin back your protruding ears with an otoplasty at Cape Cod Plastic Surgery. By manipulating the cartilage inside the ear, we’re able to reform and create a more aesthetically pleasing ear shape. Ear surgery is an outpatient procedure that requires minimal recovery time of 4-5 days.
Even if you age gracefully, you may still be dissatisfied with the face in the mirror. A facelift can restore a more youthful appearance, one that matches how you feel. Dr. Fater has decades of experience in facial cosmetic surgery and can work out a plan to meet your expectations with a minimum amount of downtime. There are many options in face lifting but in general, a facelift will elevate the deep structures of the face which may have fallen with gravity, while simultaneously removing skin excess, all while leaving the scar inconspicuously placed in natural creases or hairlines. This surgery is usually performed in our private accredited in-office surgical suite under sedation. When combined with other procedures it can also be done at Cape Cod Hospital under general anesthesia. Most patients are back to their regular activities within 2-3 weeks.
Fat injection is a useful procedure for adding volume to deficient areas- buttocks, breasts, or under abnormal depressions from trauma or previous surgery. The procedure is performed by first harvesting fat from an area where there is some excess. This is commonly the abdomen but thighs, necks, arms and flanks can be donor areas as well. This fat is then separated into its various components, and the purified, live fat cells are injected into an area which needs more permanent volume. This fat is not a temporary fill. It should last and will respond appropriately to weight gain and loss. The procedure is usually performed under sedation with local anesthesia and most patients can resume activities within a few days.
Laser Hair Removal
Remove embarrassing hair with laser hair removal from Cape Cod Plastic Surgery. This safe and effective method uses a handheld laser to target the hair follicles and bulb to remove existing hair and prevent any from growing in the future.
Depending on the area, a laser hair removal session can take from several minutes to one hour. Hair grows in cycles, so for the most comprehensive treatment, multiple sessions are usually required.
Get fuller lips and reduce wrinkles around the mouth with a lip augmentation. A variety of hyaluronic acid products are used by Dr. Fater to optimize the appearance of your lips. Contact us today to learn more.
There are many benefits of facial injection. Fine lines can be made less visible. Larger wrinkles, tear troughs, nasolabial folds or “marionette” lines can also be treated. As one ages, the face tends to lose volume. This loss can be reversed with volumizing agents. With some of the products, we have also seen improved skin tone over the injection area. A wide breadth of products are utilized at Cape Cod Plastic Surgery including Juvederm Ultra, Vollure, Voluma from Allergan; Radiesse and Belotero from Merz; Sculptra, Restylane , Lyft, and Restylane Silk from Galderma.

As you enjoy the miles of coastline along Cape Cod, you want to look your best. Sometimes fat deposits persist even after exercising and eating well. Liposuction can provide a solution. Under sedation, in our accredited, private in-office surgical suite, Dr. Fater can remove unsightly fat from the abdomen, thighs, arms, breasts, buttocks or neck. The scarring is inconspicuous. Surgery takes one to three hours. Most people are back to regular activities in under ten days. If necessary, or desired, the surgery can also be performed at Cape Cod Hospital. Liposuction is not a weight loss treatment. It is most effective in patients who are close to their ideal weight.
Male Breast Surgery
Occasionally, male breast tissue persists after puberty. This is called gynecomastia. After ascertaining that there are no medical problems causing this condition, Dr. Fater can utilize a variety of techniques to remove the extra tissue and restore a more masculine contour to the chest. This is occasionally accomplished with liposuction but may require direct excision of glandular tissue with skin reduction. The procedure can be performed under sedation in our accredited private in-office surgical suite or at Cape Cod Hospital. In certain circumstances, health insurance may cover the procedure. Most people are back to ordinary activities in under one week.
Whether due to aging, drastic weight loss or undesired fat deposition, patients may want to improve the appearance of their neck. This can be accomplished in our accredited private in-office surgical suite under sedation or at Cape Cod Hospital under general anesthesia. Depending on the nature of the problem, Dr. Fater may be able to correct the issue with liposuction alone or by reshaping the neck with muscle tightening and direct fat removal. This is frequently performed in combination with excess skin removal behind the ears. Patients can usually return to work in 7-10 days.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
If you are unhappy with appearance of your nose, the team at Cape Cod Plastic Surgery can help. Dr. Fater can improve the shape and size of your nose with local anesthesia coupled with sedation in our accredited private in-office surgical suite. This is accomplished through inconspicuously placed scars. Both bony and cartilaginous deformities can be sculpted to create your desired look. A straight nose, and more refined tip is attainable. Most patients can return to regular activities at 1 week.
Smartlipo is a laser assisted liposuction technique which in addition to melting fat prior to its removal with liposuction, can also tighten skin overlying the treatment area. Like regular liposuction, this is accomplished under sedation with the addition of local anesthesia in our accredited private in-office surgical suite.
If you are unhappy with sagging or large inner thighs, a thigh lift may be the answer. Dr. Fater can remove inner thigh fat and skin either under sedation in our accredited private in-office surgical suite or with general anesthesia at Cape Cod Hospital. This procedure will leave a scar at the top of the inner thigh. Occasionally an extension needs to be performed to narrow the circumference of the upper thigh. Most patients can return to regular activities within 2 weeks.
There is a variety of vein surgery available depending on your needs and the recommendations of our medical personnel. Stop in today and meet with our experienced team to find out which form of vein surgery is right for you.
Sclerotherapy is one of the most commonly used and effective vein treatment procedures. We’re able to eliminate varicose or spider veins by injecting a solution into the affected area, which will close the vein. This procedure can be done right in our office, and no anesthesia is necessary. Side effects are mild and include stinging, cramping, and bruising. Compression stockings must be worn for two weeks after the procedure.
Laser Surgery has traditionally been used to treat spider veins of the face in the lower extremity. A laser light is directed in short bursts at the damaged vein, which makes it fade and disappear over time. There may be some redness or swelling immediately after the treatment, but these side effects subside. Any discoloration fades in 1 to 2 weeks. Generally it takes about 15 to 20 minutes per treatment and requires 2 to 5 treatments per leg. Laser surgery to the face generally takes 1-2 sessions lasting 5 to 10 minutes.
