What is Body Contouring?
The phrase "body contouring" is used in the aesthetic industry to represent a collection of surgeries that can help to create a shapelier figure. Our patients at CosmeticGyn Center who request body contouring may have recently lost weight and want a body contouring procedure to reduce stubborn fat, tighten the skin, and sculpt the body. Body contouring can also help people who have found that diet and exercise no longer provide the results they desire. Our board-certified gynecologist and cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Otto Huertas, offers a number of body contouring options, from liposuction and abdominoplasties to fat transfer treatments. The possibilities to redefine and rejuvenate your physique are endless at CosmeticGyn Center. Contact our practice in Dallas, TX to schedule your consultation.
"Dr. Huertas is a very kind and knowledgable doctor. I’m very happy to have found him. He does biodentical hormone replacement and other cosmetic procedures that most gynecologists don’t do. He also takes most insurance options. 5 stars!!! 👏👏👏👏👏"- A.M. / Google / Mar 25, 2021
"I had a great experience with Dr. Huertas and his staff. He preformed 360 lipo on me and I’m now 1 day post op. I had a massage done with an independent massage therapist and they raved about my first day results! I will update this if anything changes. I would recommend this doctor!"- C.O. / Google / Jan 28, 2021

Who qualifies for body contouring?
Body contouring may help if you have loose, droopy skin on your body (on your buttocks or breasts, for example) or stubborn fat that doesn't respond to diet and exercise. Fat deposits can collect in certain places —like the hips, flanks, neck, abdomen, and lower back — creating unwanted bulges in those areas. Good candidates for body contouring in Dallas, TX are people who are at their goal weight but want a firmer, more defined figure.
Our Body Contouring Technique
After your consultation, Dr. Huertas will devise an aesthetic treatment plan for you, which may include both surgical and nonsurgical treatments. Dr. Huertas's goal in surgery is to create very small incisions that can be easily hidden behind clothing and to remove unsightly fat and excess skin, leaving a slimmer, tighter contour. Nonsurgical services can be performed at CosmeticGyn Center. Body Sculpture is a minimally invasive technique that sculpts and contours your body into a more sleek and desirable form by removing unwanted areas of excess fatty tissue using small cannulas.
What to Expect
We'll send you home to heal and recover after your procedure. It's common for patients to combine several body contouring procedures in multiple areas at one time. Body contouring was created to sculpt the body, so whether you choose surgical or nonsurgical procedures or some of each, you should notice a tighter, thinner body and a more curvaceous figure. We're here to guide you through the process.
Body Contouring Frequently Asked Questions
What will my body contouring procedure include?
The combination of procedures will be outlined during your consultation with Dr. Huertas and will depend on your unique needs and goals. Procedures may be scheduled in stages, depending on your general health and how many areas you want to address. Typically, we'll group the stages by combining either the upper body (stomach, breasts, arms, neck, face) or the lower body (thighs, butt, flanks, knees). This staging helps minimize the possibility of complications, such as blood loss and infection. This also shortens the length of time needed for recovery.
Will I have scarring after my surgery?
In general, surgical body contouring will result in scarring. Most patients find that once the incisions have fully healed, they no longer worry about scarring because of the significant benefits of this life-changing surgery. Dr. Huertas will do his best to hide the appearance of scars by placing the incisions in natural skin folds or in less visible areas. Post-surgery scar care is also very important. He might prescribe topical creams and ointments to improve your healing. Over time, the scars will lighten and blend into your normal skin.
How long will my body contouring results last?
If you take good care of yourself, the surgical results of body contouring can last a long time. To help prolong your results, you should maintain a healthy, stable weight. Dramatic weight changes or childbirth after your surgery may affect your results. Natural aging will continue, so you'll probably develop loose skin again as you get older. Ask Dr. Huertas about tips that may help you sustain your results.
