Body Contouring

Body Contouring in The Woodlands, TX

After losing a significant amount of weight, the skin of the upper arms, around the upper chest, and breasts may not retract fully. This causes a significant amount of skin laxity in the upper arms that makes wearing short sleeves or tighter clothing embarrassing for some patients. In addition, the excess skin folds around the back and drooping breasts can be unsightly.

What is Body Contouring?

By making carefully placed incisions on the inner arms and on the chest, this skin can be redraped and tightened to yield a more pleasing contour. This procedure may be combined with other body contouring procedures, such as lower body lift or breast surgery. Several drain tubes will be utilized for the next week after surgery.

Dr. Gordley is passionate about women rebuilding their lives post breast cancer treatment and this was obvious even during the initial consultation.

Aesthetic Body Contouring

Body contouring is a variety of cosmetic procedures that helps give your body a more fit and tone appearance. Patients that have lost a massive amount of weight often retain a significant amount of excess skin and hanging fat along their abdomen and outer thighs. This excess skin can wrap around the back as well. A traditional tummy tuck will fail to address the thighs and back and will be insufficient.

A tummy tuck tightens your midsection and may even include excess fat on the flanks.

Liposuction (including Ultrasound)

As we age, it certainly seems that fat accumulates in certain key areas that can be difficult to improve with exercise and dieting.
