Body Contouring

Body Contouring in the Greater Houston and Spring Area

Many people are able to achieve toned bodies through physical fitness and healthy diets. But, no amount of exercise or dietary control can improve loose, sagging skin or uneven body contours. Body contouring surgery is one option for people whose skin and underlying tissue has lost its natural elasticity due to massive weight loss, pregnancy, aging, sun damage, genetics or other reasons.

If your abdomen, buttocks, groin, thighs, breasts or upper arms sag or droop, you may consider body contouring for a solution. Body contouring not only removes excess skin and fat deposits, but it also improves the tone of the tissue beneath. Body contouring can also improve the appearance of cellulite that leaves you with dimpled, uneven skin.

Body contouring refers to a group of procedures that target different areas of the body. Dr. Wadiwala and his team will sit down with you to discuss your problem areas and your goals for the surgery. Common body contouring procedures include:

  • Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
  • Revision Abdominoplasty
  • Arm Lift
  • Body Lift
  • Fat Transfer
  • Liposuction
  • Thigh Lift

Even if you are still deciding which procedure is best for you, schedule an appointment with our Houston board-certified bariatric surgeon Dr. Wadiwala. He’ll be able to answer all your questions about body contouring and fat transfer in Houston!


Houston Liposuction Specialist

While liposuction at our Houston practice is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle, it can make you look and feel better. During the procedure, Dr. Wadiwala, our Board Certified Surgeon uses a specially-designed surgical instrument known as a cannula to break up and remove excess pockets of fat. Best of all, the procedure requires only small incisions!

It is important for plastic surgery patients to remember that this procedure is meant for body contouring and is not a treatment for obesity. You need to be close to your body weight to be an ideal candidate. Beyond your weight, it is critical to have the right goals – contouring and reshaping rather than seeing a smaller number on the scale.

Our patients see improvement in the contour and size of their stomach, hips, calves, arms, and thighs after liposuction surgery. Each liposuction patient’s needs and potential is individual and depends upon the amount of fat that is present beneath the skin as well as the skin’s elasticity. At your complimentary liposuction consultation, liposuction specialist Dr. Wadiwala will review with you the potential improvement that you can expect to obtain.

Tummy Tuck

You’ve worked hard to lose weight and to improve your muscle tone through diet and exercise programs. But when you have reached your desired weight but not your desired shape, it may be time to consider a tummy tuck.

When you were at a higher weight, your skin may have been stretched, and your muscles may have become weak and separated. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can correct this problem and leave you with a flatter stomach that better complements your healthy new weight. During this procedure, Dr. Wadiwala will make an incision in the lower part of your abdomen, through which he will tighten and repair muscles and remove excess fat, skin, and tissue.

Now that you’ve dropped the pounds, you’ve also dropped the skin – it probably hangs on your belly and creates an unflattering look. And no matter how many crunches you do, you just can’t seem to get those abdominal muscles anywhere near a six-pack. Without the help of plastic surgery, you might be stuck. No creams will lift lax tummy skin, no amount of crunches will tighten loose stomach muscles, and oftentimes even the healthiest diet will not be able to reduce certain fat deposits along the abdominal wall. Only abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) in Houston with Dr. Irfan Wadiwala can help you address these problem areas sufficiently.

Abdominoplasty is one of the most popular plastic surgeries for women and is becoming increasingly popular for men as well. This is truly a transformative procedure, and many of our patients tell us that they wish they scheduled surgery sooner. Picture yourself standing in front of a mirror in just your underwear seeing stomach that lies flat between your hips with no rolls or bulges over the elastic waistband of your underpants. You’ve done the work-outs, you’ve lost the weight, and you owe it to yourself to pursue your desired figure.

No matter where you had your surgery performed, give us a call and schedule an appointment with Houston based bariatric board-certified surgeon, Dr. Irfan Wadiwala.
