About Body Contouring

"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
"Best Choice for Lower Facelift, Bleph and Breast Reduction!! - I can't say enough good about Dr. Toledo and his staff!! I live in Colorado and booked a procedure with Dr. Toledo for a lower facelift, upper eyes & breast reduction after seeing his before and afters online. I had a bad turkey neck that really bothered me, saggy upper eyes and I wanted a breast reduction. Going there I had expectations and they were completely surpassed. I have a jawline again! And my eyes he did perfectly. The breast reduction/lift is so good I almost cried when I saw them. As soon as the reduction was done all my back pain is gone!! So grateful. You never really know when you choose someone you haven't met and fly there for procedures. Hands down best decision I could have made!! His staff is so caring and makes you feel so comfortable. But equally important is due to his techniques I didn't even need the pain pills. I took over the counter Tylenol just a couple of times and the recovery was so easy and pain free. As you can see by the pictures I could have gone back to work a week after the procedures. He is sooo good at what he does and if I ever get any other procedures it will only be from him! HIGHLY recommend!!!"- L. / RealSelf / Jul 06, 2021
"Dr. Toledo preformed a rhinoplasty on me and he did an excellent job. During my consultation, he was very straight to the point and he was honest with what he could do. He realistically set my expectations with a digital mark up of my nose after surgery. I highly suggest you go to him for your procedure. His staff is also extremely kind and personable."- A.S. / Google / Jun 28, 2021

"I had wanted a rhinoplasty for over 15 years and was always just too nervous to commit. I wish I had met Dr. Toledo back then, his staff made me extremely comfortable and confident with the decision. The procedure and recovery were shockingly painless, thanks to Dr. Toledo's expertise. My nose is natural and more functional than I could have ever dreamed. He gave me very real expectations and I am beyond happy with the result. I would tell anyone not to fear the recovery if you have Dr. Toledo, the whole process start to finish was a breeze and I have my ideal result. Special thanks to Esther, who went above and beyond to answer all my questions, I could not be happier!"- T.S. / Office Visit / Jun 14, 2021
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.
