Body Sculpting

Conveniently located to serve Fort Worth & Southlake, TX

Body sculpting, or body contouring, procedures focus on reshaping different areas of the body by removing excess fat, tightening loose skin, and/or repairing weakened muscles. At our plastic and reconstructive surgery practice, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Heistein uses his skill and experience to provide transformative results for our body sculpting patients in Fort Worth and Southlake, TX.

Body Sculpting Procedures 

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) – This procedure can give the stomach a flatter, smoother, and more toned appearance. Both the upper and lower areas of the abdomen are targeted in this procedure. Loose, hanging skin is surgically removed, along with excess fat. Liposuction may be used to eliminate more considerable deposits of unwanted fat, if needed. Stretched or damaged abdominal muscles can also be repaired.

Mini Abdominoplasty – A mini abdominoplasty, or mini tummy tuck, is similar to the traditional tummy tuck but focuses only on loose skin and excess fat in the lower abdomen. The incision for this procedure is smaller than with a full tummy tuck, and less tissue is removed, so recovery tends to be quicker.

Body Contouring after Weight Loss – After undergoing massive weight loss, patients often have loose, drooping skin in one or more areas of the body. Body contouring after weight loss frequently involves a combination of procedures to firm and tighten the contours of the upper arms, abdomen, thighs, and/or buttocks. Post-weight loss body contouring options include:

Liposuction – Liposuction is a body sculpting procedure performed to remove excess body fat to eliminate extra bulk and create slimmer contours. During a liposuction procedure, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted through a small incision and used to separate fat from the surrounding tissue. Fat cells can then be extracted from the body through the cannula using a medical suction device. Common liposuction treatment areas include the neck, abdomen, flanks, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms. 

BodyTite™ – BodyTite™ is an advanced body sculpting procedure that can both eliminate fat and tighten skin. The BodyTite™ system employs the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy to liquify fat, which makes it easier to remove via liposuction. The heat generated by the RF energy also helps to tighten sagging skin.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Body contouring surgery is a safe and effective option for many men and women who are in good overall health, close to their ideal body weight, and have realistic aesthetic goals. 

Many women who have gone through pregnancy find that body sculpting surgery helps to restore the appearance of their pre-pregnancy figure. Individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight can also be excellent candidates. Many patients who experience age-related fat accumulation and/or skin laxity can also benefit from body contouring surgery.
