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
"I had a rhinoplasty with Dr Toledo in December or 2021. I’ve wanted to fix my nose since I was a young and Dr Toledo exceeded my expectations. I had minimal pain post op. My nose really fits with the rest of my face now and I can breathe better. I’ve been an RN for 5 years and I researched multiple surgeons prior to my consultation. The staff was great and Dr. Toledo was fantastic. I’m very happy with my results and wish I would have done it sooner! Thank y’all for everything!"- B.S. / Google / Aug 11, 2022
"Perfect! New nose beautiful & recovery process was fast & painless - It's been almost a month since my rhinoplasty surgery. In summary, Dr. Toledo exceeded my expectations a million times over!Please please please do not let the other reviews about his "bedside manner" scare you. Dr. Toledo is honest, realistic, and he is not flashy or trying to sell you anything. His job isn't to praise you, it's to be the best surgeon he possibly can be. Let's be real, many people wanting a plastic surgery are insecure, fragile, and don't like to hear complete honesty. However, one should prefer a surgeon who is truthful and transparent. Moreover, Dr. Toledo is actually very kind and genuine!Not only is my new nose beautiful, the recovery process was seamless. It was fast and painless. I didn't even bruise (which says a lot about the accuracy, precision, and carefulness of a surgeon!) The staff was always kind and helpful when I called with questions. When I was a little anxious minutes before the procedure, the anesthesiologist told me that his wife had only gotten one procedure done: a rhinoplasty, and by Dr. Toledo. That alone proves how trustworthy and incredible Dr. Toledo is. I could type on and on about how amazing my experience was. I have no regrets. I would choose him over and over if I could. He is literally an artist in his craft. Just trust me, at the very least, schedule a consultation, and see what Dr. Toledo can do for you! "- M. / RealSelf / Jun 25, 2022
"The doctor and staff gave me an outstanding patient experience - I need to write this review! Have patience with me I am moving and starting a new job. I had my surgery April 21st and my consultation on April 20th. I wanted to give some credit to a girl on here I can't remember her name. I loved her results which caused me to make the phone call. I stayed in Dallas 11 days. I didn't need all that time. I hired a company for my overnight person. You will need someone with you for 24 hours after surgery. Dr. Toledo's office has the name of the company I used. Overall, my experience was 10/10, it was great. Dr. Toledo and his staff gave me outstanding patient experience. Treated me very well. I have no complaints. The rest of this review is going to be a little more detailed experienced."- M. / RealSelf / Jun 21, 2022

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.
