About Body Contouring
The term "body contouring" is one that is regularly used in the aesthetic industry to represent a number of procedures that can create a shapelier figure. Individuals who have lost weight, or whose weight has fluctuated over the years, may desire to have a body contouring procedure at Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center to reduce fat, tighten the skin, and sculpt certain areas of the body. In addition, body contouring can be used for men and women who are aging and find that diet and exercise alone no longer provide the shape they desire. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George A. Toledo offers numerous body contouring options, including thigh lift, butt lift, arm lift, breast lift, and liposuction procedures. The possibilities to redefine and rejuvenate your physique are endless.
Dr. Toledo knows that no two patients are alike and performs thorough pre-surgery consultations to understand each patient’s weight loss journey, medical needs, and cosmetic desires. For Dr. Toledo, this is one of the most important parts of the surgical process as he is able to listen to his patients and create a customized treatment plan.

"So impressed with Dr. Toledo's rhinoplasty results! And even more impressed with how much my breathing has improved! I didn't even realize how blocked my breathing was until now, it really is life changing. Beautiful results. And a perfect little nose!"- J.D. / Yelp / Mar 24, 2019
"Let me start by saying if you are looking for a plastic surgeon, schedule a consultation with Dr. Toledo today! I had decided I was going to get a facelift two years ago, but wanted to find the right doctor and not rush into anything (even though I was eager to look younger again!) There are an almost overwhelming number of plastic surgeons in Dallas, let alone the state of Texas, so I was confident I would find a place. I had gone to three consultations at other offices and thought I would be happy at any of them, but when I came to see Dr. Toledo, I immediately saw the difference and knew this was the place I wanted to schedule my surgery. I felt at home right away - the office feels very comfortable and the staff were all friendly and warm to me. During the appointment, Dr. Toledo listened to my concerns and what I was hoping for in terms of results. He was honest and straightforward, explaining what was possible and what was not. He clearly has a great deal of experience and not only knows what is best, but took the time to explain what he could do for me. Just from the first appointment it is easy to see that Dr. Toledo cares about his patients and was not trying to sell me on different treatments or procedures. In fact, he even told me that I didn't need the eyelid surgery that I was considering as well! He wanted me to be happy with the results, but made sure I had realistic goals. The day of my surgery I was very nervous, but as soon as I arrived to the office (the surgeries are done right in the office building!) everyone put me at ease. My recovery was manageable and the staff were incredibly patient with my questions and called multiple times to check on me. It has been 3 weeks since my surgery and I could not be happier! I feel like years have been erased off of my face and I have a new confidence that I haven't had in a long time! I don't shy away from the camera - I feel gorgeous! Thank you, Dr. Toledo."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Jun 18, 2019
"Being an out of town patient, I was nervous to find a surgeon to perform my rhinoplasty but I consistently found the best reviews regarding Dr. Toledo. Those, along with very good recommendations from family friends, led me to choose him and I am so grateful that he did. He made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process and the office staff, particularly Esther, made it as easy and understandable for me as possible. Since I live 5 hours away, the initial consultation took place over the phone and the paperwork was electronic. I had an appointment the day before to officially meet him in person and discuss any last minute questions or concerns, making it very easy for me to manage coming into town. Dr. Toledo is very knowledgeable about the ideal proportions of facial features and he knew exactly what needed to be changed about my nose to achieve the look I dreamed of. He also put my mind at ease by showing me pictures beforehand of what he planned for my nose to look like after surgery. It turned out exactly how he said and I could't be happier! Every single thing he addressed before surgery looked identical or even better to what he showed me beforehand. I am very grateful to him. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Toledo to anyone thinking of any cosmetic surgery."- K.H. / Google / May 29, 2019
"Dr. Toledo performed my breast augmentation and after being more than satisfied, my sister and I came back exactly a year later for our rhinoplasty. He takes a realistic approach in plastic surgery and makes it absolutely perfect. I don’t think I could’ve ever gone to anyone else. He is honest and performs quality work and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to go with Dr. Toledo as my surgeon! Not to mention the nurses and staff there are so sweet!"- J.G. / Google / May 22, 2019
"My sister and I both had rhinoplasty done by Dr. Toledo and the results are outstanding. George Toledo has a way of transforming and creating the perfect nose to fit ones face with giving such a natural, but perfect nose. The ladies in the office are so sweet and they all have a way of making you feel comfortable and confident. I would recommend him to anyone! They offer so many services at the office as I am going back for a chemical peel in a few weeks. Love love love Toledo and his staff!"- J.R. / Google / May 20, 2019
Body contouring may help if you have sagging skin, deflated body parts (such as the breasts or buttocks), or fat in areas that are hard to lose. The neck, abdomen, lower back, hips, and flanks are examples of areas where fat deposits can collect, creating unwanted bulges. The best candidates for body contouring are Dallas, Texas individuals who are at a healthy, ideal weight and desire a tighter, more defined figure.
After your consultation, Dr. Toledo will create a body contouring treatment plan for you. This may consist of several surgical procedures. Surgeries, such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, and breast lift or augmentation usually require general anesthesia. The goal during these treatments is to create an incision that can be concealed by undergarments and to remove unwanted fat and excess skin, leaving a slimmer, tighter contour. Body contouring is an in-depth procedure that can take several hours to perform, depending on the number of treatments being administered. Dr. Toledo performs all body contouring procedures in the safety of his state-of-the-art facility, the Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center.
What to Expect
If you are having a surgical procedure, you will be sent home to rest and recover afterward. Nonsurgical treatments typically do not have any downtime. It is common for some patients to combine several surgical procedures on several areas of the body, which may require an overnight stay. Body contouring is meant to reshape the body so whether you choose surgical or nonsurgical procedures or a combination of both, you will notice a slimmer, tighter body and a more defined profile.
Frequently Asked Questions
What will be part of my body contouring surgery?
The combination of procedures will be outlined during your initial consultation with Dr. Toledo. Procedures may be scheduled in stages, depending on your overall physical health and the number of areas being addressed. Typically, the grouping will be staged with a combination of either the upper body parts (abdomen, breasts, arms, neck, face) or lower body parts (buttocks, thighs, flanks, knees). This staging helps reduce the risk of complications, such as blood loss and infection. This also shortens the length of time for recovery.
Will I have scarring after my surgery?
In general, a body contouring procedure will result in scarring. Most patients report that once the incisions heal, the scarring is no longer a worry as the benefits of this life-changing surgery are so significant. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Toledo will make every effort to minimize the appearance of scars by carefully placing the incisions inconspicuously. Post-surgery care is also very important. Topical creams may be prescribed to aid in the healing process. Over time, the scars will lighten and blend in with your natural skin tone.
How long will my body contouring results last?
With proper care, the results of your body contouring surgery can last a long time. To help maintain your results, you should remain at a healthy, stable weight. Significant weight changes or pregnancy after your surgery may impact your results. Natural aging will continue so you may eventually see loose skin develop as you get older. Talk to Dr. Toledo about suggestions that may help you sustain your results.
