Five Areas of the Body That Benefit From Body Contouring

By: Dr. Rolando Morales


Massive weight loss is a huge accomplishment. We know it is not easy to cut down on calories and hit the gym on a consistent basis. Even if you are pleased with your new figure, there are still challenges ahead. You may have loose folds of skin that cannot be treated with traditional weight loss methods. Others may struggle with small fat deposits in unwanted places.

If you have undergone extreme weight loss surgery or recently lost a great amount of weight, learn about body contouring procedures from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rolando Morales. Morales Plastic Surgery can help you treat areas such as the breasts, arms, thighs, abdomen, and buttocks. Learn about body contouring in Houston, TX, with a private consultation today.

Who is a candidate for body contouring?

Body contouring allows people to complete their long-term weight loss efforts through loose skin removal and excess fat removal. The great news is that these procedures can be performed on nearly any area of the body. However, it is important for candidates to go through an evaluation process before undergoing plastic surgery. Dr. Morales assesses patients to make sure they are generally healthy and near their goal weight. This is because body contouring is not necessarily designed for further weight loss.

Body contouring procedures we offer

During your initial consultation, we can discuss your goals and create a custom plan moving forward. Some patients only require one body contouring surgery, while others opt for a combination procedure. Our clinic strategically stages your treatment to make the most of your results. Body contouring in Houston includes the following:

  1. Breasts: create a lifted bustline by reducing loose or hanging skin

  2. Arms: lift surgery can treat sagging skin under the arms, also known as “bat wings”

  3. Thighs: improve sagging skin in the inner thighs to make your legs appear slimmer

  4. Abdomen: tummy tuck procedures can target loose skin and excess fat in the midsection

  5. Buttocks: a buttock lift can lift a hanging bottom to make it seem more toned

How body contouring works

Loose skin removal and excess fat removal is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. The duration of the surgery depends on which procedures are performed and the amount of loose skin and fat involved. While recovery can seem extended, our patients agree that their rejuvenated results are worth the wait. In fact, many people find that their new silhouette makes it easier to adhere to a healthy lifestyle. Additional benefits of body contouring with Dr. Morales include:

  • A slimmer and younger-looking appearance

  • Lose the heavy weight of your skin folds

  • Improve your personal hygiene

  • Reduce skin irritation and infection

  • Make certain exercises easier

  • Wear smaller, form-fitting clothes
