Is there a particular spot on your body that is not as ideal as you would like? Liposuction is a type of surgery using suction to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the stomach, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck. Many people inherit body contours that no amount of exercise and diet can change. One of the most popular  procedures, liposuction, or liposculpture, can help refine your body contours. Liposuction can help reduce or eliminate areas areas of concern, and let you feel relaxed with your  natural beauty at its best.  Dr. Yu will guide you through what areas may achieve the best results through your consultation.

Tummy Tuck

Though you may exercise and watch your diet, you may not be able to reduce the excess skin and muscle laxity in your abdominal region. Belly skin and muscles may loosen with hormonal changes, pregnancy, and weight loss. Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. With a mini or full tummy-tuck, Dr. Yu can remove some stretch marks and shape a less protruding, more contoured abdomen for men and women alike.  A consultation with Dr. Yu will highlight your options and best results for your particular body and circumstances.

Body Lift (arms, thighs, waist, hips)


Whatever plastic surgery lift procedure you may be considering, Maui plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Yu can provide you with the various options available since he is highly experienced with over 25,000 surgeries performed. Dr. Yu offers various body lift areas. Conditions that may be improved include: dimpled soft tissue (cellulite), lax skin, excess fat and tissue, sagging contours. Certain areas benefit especially those lacking in tone or firmness, or uneven sagging body contours, caused from weight changes and fluctuations, sun damage, aging, heredity, pregnancy, or child or teen obesity. Dr. Yu can help you choose the procedure or combination of procedures that will enhance your natural beauty and empower your confidence.


Labia reduction (labiaplasty) plastic surgery involves surgically reducing and/or reshaping female external genital structures (labia).  Some women seek labiaplasty with Dr. Yu to alleviate discomfort caused by large or thick labia, which can interfere with everyday activities and exercise or when wearing tight fitting clothes. Others find that large labia can cause discomfort or pain during intercourse.

Another major reason why women request this procedure and why Dr. Leonard Yu performs this procedure frequently is that some women have asymmetric labia. This can cause self-consciousness in appearance and their functioning of every-day life, whether it be exercise, sports, or intimate relations. 

This is an increasingly requested procedure that Dr. Yu is experienced in performing at Maui Plasti  Surgery.
