Santa Barbara’s Center for Body Contouring

Schedule Consultation

Welcome

Our Center provides state of the art body sculpting for a great variety of men and women utilizing both surgical techniques and non-surgical technologies. It is our hope that you will use the information here to become well informed about the procedures of VASER liposuction, CoolSculpting, and surgical body contouring as Dr. Lowenstein performs them at his Montecito Plastic Surgery Center in Santa Barbara.

Dr. Lowenstein is the only practice in the Santa Barbara area to provide both VASER liposuction and and CoolSculpting cryotherapy techniques of body contouring, in addition to the ability to shrink skin with J-Plasma. These cutting edge modalities span the non-invasive to minimally invasive range of fat removal and enable effective treatment for patients ranging from fitness experts hoping to lose a small bulge and sculpt their body, to women hoping to avoid an abdominoplasty but gain significant improvement in the appearance of their abdomen. These technologies are known for amazing results with easy recovery and no or minimal downtime. For patients who have experienced significant weight loss or who may have undergone previous surgery to lose weight Dr. Lowenstein also provides true expertise in surgical excision to contour the skin to the new body underneath.

Patients come from all over the world for Dr. Lowenstein’s personalized approach to whole body rejuvenation, utilizing the most advanced yet proven technologies and procedures to optimize patient care. Meticulous body contouring techniques are the hallmark of Dr. Lowenstein’s approach in Santa Barbara, but the process begins with the thorough education that patients can begin to obtain here. You will find information on CoolSculpting, liposuction, abdominoplasty, body lifts, arm lifts, and thigh lifts in the pages of our website, but the most comprehensive and individualized discussion will come with your consultation with Dr. Lowenstein.

Every treatment I have received from Dr. Lowenstein has been excellent. More recently, I’ve worked with Polly, who... offered specific advice for my problem areas and paid close attention to any of concerns; her observations and subsequent solutions were spot-on. In all cases, I found her experience and expertise to be top notch, the entire process trouble-free. I recommend her to anyone looking to improve their skin quality, tone and overall appearance..read more

I am really grateful for the care that Dr. Lowenstein and his team provided me throughout (and after) my surgery! At... our initial consultation, I was convinced he was the best doctor I would come by to give me natural-looking results. He took my entire lifestyle into consideration before creating a surgery plan individually tailored for my needs. His entire staff is kind and professional. I was shocked at how quick my recovery time passed by, and I was in minimal pain after surgery without having to take heavy pain killers! I would give this team more stars if I could 🙂 Thank you a million times over!!!!read more

I’m only 4 days post op from my breast augmentation surgery and I must say recovery is going great so far. After day... one I’ve had little to no pain, only needing to use prescribed pain pills the first 24hrs & Tylenol thereafter. My breast look amazing & I am excited to see the final results once they have relaxed/settled. My overall experience at Montecito Plastic Surgery has been good. The staff have been kind, professional & patient with me & Dr. Lowenstein is a master at his craft.read more

I highly recommend Polly for all your filler needs. I have been her faithful client since 2015, she understands my... needs and makes sure everything done is in the most natural looking way. I trust the outcome of everything she does wholeheartedly, I love her gentle approach, she takes the time to listen to what you want to achieve, without imposing. You never have to worry about walking out looking like something totally different than what you had in mind! She is definitely my go-to for fillers!read more

Dr. Lowenstein performed my migraine surgery in Santa Barbara. I traveled from Denver, where Dr. Lowenstein saw me for... my appointments to have the surgery in California. I would absolutely and unequivocally recommend the Dr. and his amazing team. Shout out to Jeanie V. who helped me make arrangements. My case is complex and without easy solutions. I took a lot of care and did a lot of research into options. In the end, I can’t live the way my head is and he is the absolute best person to get me back to normal function. If you’re thinking about this - don’t wait. Take your life back. You don’t have to live in migraine drugs. Dr. Lowenstein will give it his all. He is an amazing man, and I’m so lucky to have found his team and this surgery.read more

Breast augmentation is something I’ve considered for many years but never found the right balance of circumstances;... timing, finances and most importantly, a surgeon whose work reflected exactly what I was looking for - natural and classy and not at all fake-looking.When I saw Dr. Lowenstein’s natural results in the before & after gallery, I knew that it would be worth the drive from Orange County to Santa Barbara and I wasn’t disappointed!I am in love with the results. Dr. Lowenstein absolutely nailed it.I was also really impressed with the Anesthesiologist, Tim who was very professional and was able to put me under without any nausea when I woke up.From the consultation through to surgery and follow-up appointments, Dr. Lowenstein and the team were committed to educating me, answering my questions and making sure I was informed and comfortable. Montecito Plastic Surgery is a top-notch facility and I have confidence in recommending them for your surgical or nonsurgical procedure.read more

Prior to my visit at Montecito Plastic Surgery I had consultations with various Surgeons in and out of town, and I have... to say that by far, Dr. Lowenstein and his staff are the absolute best! Dr. Lowenstein is amazing! I had a consultation with him and explained the look I was going for (breast augmentation) and he knew EXACTLY what I wanted. He was very clear about risks and complications, needless to say I KNEW I was in good hands. Susanne (the RN) has great bedside manner and she, along with Dr. Lowenstein, detailed the procedure from beginning to end. They answered any and ALL of my questions and concerns without hesitation. Ruthie (the patient coordinator) did a wonderful job walking me through the day of the procedure and setting up my follow up appointments. Not once did I feel like “just another patient” everyone was so caring and made me feel comfortable. I LOVE my results! Most people would never even guess I had a breast augmentation! They look so natural and proportionate to my body shape and size. I 100% recommend Dr. Lowenstein and his team to anyone that is searching for top notch care!read more
