A plastic surgeon in Houston can give back the body a person wants through body contouring. With tummy tucks, liposuction, and full body lifts they are given a younger-looking body that is firm and healthy. Patients can select which procedures they have done if every procedure is not wanted. Body contouring is a great way to get rid of the extra fat when diet and exercise has not worked. After body contouring procedures, patients are left with more self-esteem about their new body.

Houston laser liposuction targets specific areas of the body and melts away the fat with only one treatment. It is commonly used for the neck, stomach, thighs, chest, or face. It also tightens the skin after fat removal so there is no sagging or dimpling. Laser liposuction is a minimally invasive surgery, which gives patients a faster treatment and recovery time. After the treated area is healed, patients have a natural look without the excess fat.

For those that have unwanted fat in the stomach area, they can consider a tummy tuck Houston. This procedure gives patients a firmer abdomen and can be done with liposuction depending on the amount of fat and skin that is to be removed. This is best for a person who exercises and is generally in good shape but has weak abdomen muscles, which often occurs after multiple pregnancies or with age. After a tummy tuck, Houston patients are given pain medications and can go home the same day or after an overnight stay.

A cosmetic surgeon in Houston that performs body contouring also offers body lift Houston. This is done once a person has lost 60 to 350 pounds and has excess skin on their thighs, trunk, face, breasts, and back. Since scarring occurs, it is not recommended for somebody with only a little extra skin. Body contouring helps both men and women that have trouble spots where diet and exercise are not working. Liposuction, body lifts, and liposuction can be used to lose the last few pounds after a pregnancy or diet. __________________
