"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
"Dr.Toledo is very talented with his craft. I feel like he is very upfront and honest, which is what I would want from my plastic surgeon. He performed a rhinoplasty on me three years ago, such natural work, the few people I tell can't believe it was worked on. He also performed scar removal on my face, I could not find a doctor to perform it here in Houston, so I travel back to Dallas for Dr.Toeldo, my scar has now healed and my confidence has gone up ten fold. In addition I would like to say that his pricing is more than fair."- A.A. / Google / Oct 31, 2020

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.
