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 Dallas Cosmetic 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 Dallas Cosmetic Center. Contact our practice in Dallas, TX to schedule your consultation.

What Are The Benefits Of Body Contouring?

Body contouring by Dr. Huertas can help men and women enhance and remake their look with several great benefits, including:

  • Offers fully customizable treatment options
  • Reduces unwanted fat in problem areas
  • Tightens and firms loose skin
  • Sculpts and defines the body
  • Accentuates natural body curves

  • Effective for multiple body areas
  • Creates dramatic, long-lasting results

Who is a Candidate 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.

What to Expect During Body Contouring

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 Dallas Cosmetic 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 is Recovery Like After Body Contouring?

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 FAQ

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.

How does a surgeon determine the appropriate techniques to use in body contouring?
Dr. Huertas will assess several factors to decide on the appropriate techniques for body contouring. These include the patient’s overall health, the amount and location of excess skin or fat, skin quality, and the patient’s aesthetic goals. Advanced imaging and body scanning technologies may also be used to plan the procedure and predict outcomes. The choice of technique is a critical decision tailored to each patient’s unique needs, ensuring safety and the effectiveness of the outcome. Dr. Huertas will share information about your surgery to fully educate you about the process and recovery period.

How does nutrition impact the results of body contouring?
Nutrition plays a crucial role in optimizing the results of body contouring. A well-balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and proteins can aid in faster and more effective healing. Proper nutrition supports skin elasticity and muscle repair, which are pivotal during the recovery from body contouring procedures. Patients are advised to avoid extreme diets both before and after surgery, as significant weight fluctuations can alter the outcomes. Consulting with a nutritionist may be beneficial to establish a healthy eating plan tailored to support recovery and maintain results.

Can body contouring procedures affect body function?
Body contouring procedures are primarily cosmetic and designed to improve the appearance of the body. They typically do not affect the internal organs or overall body function. However, as with any surgery, there can be temporary discomfort, swelling, and changes in sensation near the treated areas. It’s important for patients to discuss all concerns with Dr. Huertas to fully understand the implications of the procedure.
