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
"Dr. Toledo and his staff were incredible! They were so helpful throughout the entire process. They answered any & all questions I had before and after my surgery. Dr. Toledo gave me realistic expectations of what this surgery would be like which was helpful while recovering. He worked with me on perfecting what I wanted from the surgery and delivered exactly what we had decided together. I could not be happier with the outcome of my surgery, it is everything I wanted and more. I could not recommend this office enough!!"- K.W. / Google / Jun 24, 2020
"I have been going to Dr. Toledo for almost 30 years. I trust him and I will be going to him in the near future, since I am getting older. He makes you look you very best. I recommend him to family and friends."- E.C. / Healthgrades / Jun 12, 2020
"No More Fears That I Am Part Bird! And I Can Breath Better, Too! - First things first, just get it done. If you are here reading this, the only advice I have is: DO IT! Do not wait. I HAD a big hook nose with a bulbous tip. My profile was hideous - I never, ever uploaded any pictures of my profile. When I got my hair done recently, the stylist loved the result and wanted to upload them to her web portfolio. Luckily for me, she was kind enough not to upload the ones where my nose would stick out. As in, the shots were only of the back of my head. I turned my head slightly to each side to catch the light. With most folks, their nose would not stick out past their blown-out hair. Mine did, and it ruined the shots because all you saw was this big beautiful hair and a massive, long, hook nose. Speaking of hair, I could never cut my hair. Most people with bobbed hair have elegant noses, just because it attracts so much attention to your face. Short story short: it was bad. With all that said, I am thrilled I chose an EXPERIENCED surgeon!!! My nose had to be broken TWICE, which is not a common occurrence for this procedure. I had done three consultations, and Dr. Toledo was the final one. The other two surgeons were young and had excellent credentials, but I just knew my nose was going to be complicated - and it was. There was more to my nose that met the eye (more on that in a minute), and I cannot imagine what someone less experienced would have done halfway through the surgery when they realized the initial break was not going to be enough to generate the desired results. That is the kind of thing you can only handle easily with decades of experience. No amount of textbook learning would save you here. My surgery was long, too. He operated on it until it was perfect. I am so, so amazingly grateful that I put my nose in expert hands. Best decision! Apparently, due to the size of my nose, you could not tell that it was quite crooked on the inside. I got a great bonus - I CAN BREATH! While fixing my massively complex nose, Dr. Toledo performed a septoplasty. WHAT!?! There is a stark difference in my airflow before and after the surgery! I could not run before the surgery, and now cardio is much easier for me. He is an ENT, after all! Just another reason to pick him. I hope this review inspires you to pass on the less experienced surgeon and pick the experienced ENT who knows what he can deliver for you. He will not promise anything he cannot provide. The photo of the 'after' he generates is spot on (my actual is better). I wanted a copy of it so I could compare the before and after, but all I have to do is look in the mirror. He is an artist. My dad is super happy with the result and says my face looks the way it always should have."- N.R. / RealSelf / May 22, 2020
"Finally my nose looks how I have always felt it should - Dr. Toledo and his staff were very helpful, informative, and caring. I am a nurse who had two rhinoplasties done by a different surgeon 10 years and very unhappy with the results. Dr. Toledo confidently said he would be able to fix my nose. Finally my nose looks how I have always felt it should and it looks completely natural. I would highly recommend Dr. Toledo for a rhinoplasty as he is very skilled in this area."- A. / RealSelf / May 05, 2020
Body Contouring Ideal Candidates
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.
Body Contouring Surgical Technique
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 with Body Contouring
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.
Body Contouring 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.
