Why should I get body contouring surgery?

Some of the most exciting potential benefits of undergoing body-contouring surgery in Houston, TX include:

Do I qualify for body contouring surgery?

Ideal candidates for body contouring surgery should have already reached their goal weight, within about 15 – 25 pounds, and should have demonstrated the ability to maintain a consistent weight for at least 6 – 12 months. Additionally, patients should be in good overall health, have no contraindications to general anesthesia, and have a good understanding of the recovery and results to expect after surgery. Dr. Morales will conduct a thorough consultation and evaluation prior to curating a body contouring treatment plan for you to ensure your procedure is appropriate, safe, and successful.


Will I have scars after body contouring surgery?

Most surgical body contouring procedures require incisions and some level of resultant scarring. Still, Dr. Morales shares in the desire to minimize visible scarring and uses advanced techniques and incision placement to ensure scars can be concealed as much as possible. For example, body lift surgery incisions may be placed along the beltline for men, while a woman’s tummy tuck incision can often be placed beneath the waistband of her underwear or swimsuit.
