Body Contouring

Massive weight loss provides a number of long-term health and lifestyle benefits, but it also can result in stretched, sagging skin.

Body contouring removes excess tissue and tightens skin to help you enjoy your achievement to the fullest.

Learn how body contouring procedures by Dr. Vishnu Rumalla in Fort Worth, TX, can help you achieve your goals... 

Amazing Benefits of Body Contouring

Enhance Your Confidence

Major weight loss is an achievement, but stretched and sagging skin can make it difficult to enjoy your results. Contouring treatment at our state-of-the-art offices in Fort Worth, Southlake, and Keller, TX, can boost your self-confidence like never before and help you feel proud of the skin you're in.

Enjoy Customized Treatment

Your individual needs determine the kind of procedures that will make up your treatment plan. A body contouring plan can potentially include a facelift, breast lift, tummy tuck, thigh lift, arm lift, and liposuction. Dr. Rumalla knows that every patient is different, so he will tailor your contouring treatment to your unique goals.

Improve Your Body Image

Even though you've experienced significant weight loss, it can be difficult to view yourself as someone who is healthier and slimmer if you have excess skin and fat. Body contouring signifies the end of your weight loss journey and allows you to finally celebrate a new you.

Reduce Skin Issues

Massive weight loss patients can experience skin rashes and even infections in the crevices formed by loose skin. Body contouring procedures can give you tighter skin, which can reduce the risk of infection and uncomfortable skin conditions.

Dr. Rumalla is an angel. I can’t recommend him enough! I’ve had two surgeries done by him and not one complaint. He takes time to explain everything, never rushes you, always has a smile on his face and he genuinely cares about you. The staff is amazing, the pricing is fair and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Dr. Rumalla has been practicing for 18 years and it shows in his love of his work, and the quality of his work. He and his staff at both locations are professional, friendly and very attentive to my needs and questions. I know they probably hear the same things day after day, but I have always been treaded with kindness. They all truly care about their patients. I am extremely picky about my doctors and when I considered having plastic surgery, mastopexy, I read all the reviews. Stop reading now and schedule an appointment with Dr. Rumalla, you will not be disappointed. I have and will keep recommending Dr. Rumalla to anyone who asks.

Who Can Body Contouring Benefit?

Dr. Rumalla has helped a large number of patients who have achieved massive weight loss and are looking to improve their shape and form. These patients usually fall into two groups:

Weight Loss through Bariatric Surgery

Patients who have had bariatric surgery, such as gastric bypass or the placement of devices that reduce stomach capacity, often experience massive weight loss. These patients then have to address their remaining excess skin.

Weight Loss through Diet and Exercise

The second group of patients has accomplished their weight loss through diet and exercise, sometimes with the help of medically supervised weight management. Still, this form of weight loss can result in loose skin.

In either case, the effects of massive weight loss on the appearance of the body are often dramatic. Though patients are glad to have achieved an overall improvement in fitness and wellness, they are often left with loose skin that compromises the definition of their body contours. In many cases, this keeps patients from fully realizing the transformations they desire.

What if I Have a Medical Condition?

Patients who have achieved major weight loss experience an improvement in their overall medical condition, but still may have conditions like diabetes and hypertension. These conditions need to be managed before Dr. Rumalla can provide body contouring.

Patients who have had bariatric surgery may have metabolic problems like electrolyte imbalances or anemia that need to be corrected prior to surgery. Dr. Rumalla can coordinate care with your primary care doctor to help you achieve candidacy for these procedures.

Other Candidacy Factors

Stable Weight

Patients must be at or near their ideal weight in order to be considered for body contouring. Large weight fluctuations can potentially compromise surgery results.

Non-Smoker

Smoking significantly increases the risk of surgical complications. Patients must quit smoking for an allotted time in order to be approved for body contouring procedures.

Committed to a Healthy Lifestyle

In order to maintain their results, patients must be committed to a healthy lifestyle that includes a well-balanced diet and regular exercise.

I just had a Tummy Tuck, Muscle Repair and Lipo done a few days ago. I’m more than pleased with the outcome so far! I picked Dr. Rumalla because he was extremely caring, knowledgeable and genuine. He took time to care for me at the hospital after my surgery and I was grateful for that. There is no need to look any further for a plastic surgeon, this is your place!

My name is Lisa and I am a registered nurse. I had a tummy tuck done in December. The results are amazing!!! I have a completely flat abdomen and the area looks fantastic. I can not be more pleased. The staff were so helpful and Dr. Rumalla is easy to talk with and his surgical skills are superior. The whole experience was so worth it. I have my last visit next week. I cannot wait for summer outfits for the first time in a long time. Thank you all at Tarrant Plastic Surgery

Is Treatment Covered by Insurance?

Patients often ask what role health insurance can play in paying for plastic surgery. Insurance companies will often consider paying for a significant breast reduction or a panniculectomy (excision of loose skin below the pubis which can cause rashes and other complications). In these instances, insurance will only pay for the extent of treatment needed to resolve practical issues. You can expect that any degree of treatment performed for cosmetic purposes will require paying out of pocket. During your consultation at any of our offices in the Fort Worth area, we will be able to provide an estimated cost of treatment.

What If I Can't Afford It? Financing Options Are Available

Here at Tarrant Plastic Surgery in Fort Worth, TX, we strive to make treatment accessible to all. We offer discounts if you undergo multiple body contouring procedures at once. We also work with CareCredit®, a third-party financing company that can split the cost of treatment into monthly payments.

Dr. Rumalla and his staff provide an atmosphere of knowledge, care, and honestly that are first rate. My pre-op visits were very informative to what I needed personally from surgery, to what my surgery entailed, and projection of results. I was completely in awe on the time Dr. Rumalla gave me during my post-op visits. He was very maticulous and always answers all my questions in depth, I always left my appointments thinking “I found a world class surgeon right here in North Texas.” I am 13 weeks post surgery and I couldn’t be happier with the results I attained from Dr. Rumalla’s skilled hands! If you are looking for perfection look no farther, Dr. Rumalla is your surgeon!

Our team sees every patient as a unique individual who deserves the best results possible.

Consultation

Our plastic surgeon will conduct an in-depth consultation to learn about your treatment goals and create a custom plan. He will walk through your medical history, examine your body, take measurements, and discuss your treatment in full detail.

Anesthesia

When it is time for your procedure, you will be placed under general anesthesia by a board-certified anesthesiologist. This will ensure your comfort at all times.

Incisions

Whenever possible, our plastic surgeon will create incisions in discreet areas that can be easily covered with clothing. The locations of the incisions depend mainly on which combination of body contouring procedures you select.

Removal

Our Fort Worth plastic surgeon will remove excess skin and fat from the desired areas. He will then tighten the skin to ensure a smooth surface. Finally, he will close the treated areas with sutures.

Recovery

Patients will rest in our recovery room under guidance from one of our nurses. You are welcome to stay overnight, and we will walk through all discharge and aftercare instructions with you. We offer pain pumps to help you manage discomfort during recovery, and we will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your healing progress.

Committed to Protecting Our Patients

Due to our highly skilled team and years of expertise, it is unlikely for a complication to occur after surgery. However, we want to provide our patients with an extra layer of protection and peace of mind by offering CosmetAssure®. CosmetAssure is a supplemental insurance coverage program that covers any complications that may occur within the first 30 days after surgery. We hope that this helps our patients feel more secure and at ease during their time with our Fort Worth practice.

Dr. Rumalla Discusses Liposuction

Many body contouring plans involve liposuction. In this video, Dr. Rumalla discusses the advanced alternatives to traditional liposuction we have available at our offices in the Fort Worth area.

Alternatives to Traditional Liposuction Utilizing the Most Advanced Tools for Our Patients

Bodytite

Bodytite is a minimally invasive procedure that is similar to liposuction, but relies on radio frequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to liquefy fat and remove it from areas such as the thighs, arms, and buttocks. Thermal energy is applied under and above the skin so that fat removal and skin tightening can be achieved during a single procedure. Bodytite can provide incredible benefits without the lengthy recovery time associated with more invasive surgical techniques.

SmartLipo and Cellulaze

SmartLipo® and Cellulaze™ are procedures that deliver laser energy directly under the skin to liquify fat before it is removed. Meanwhile, the laser enhances both the thickness and appearance of your skin by stimulating collagen production. Cellulaze is designed to minimize the "orange peel" look associated with cellulite by releasing the fibrous bands that pull the skin down.

Coolsculpting

Coolsculpting is a treatment approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that uses cold temperatures to target and destroy fat cells. It can be used to treat several different areas of the body. The procedure uses carefully regulated cooling plates to bring fat cells down to a temperature at which they are irreversibly damaged. The damaged fat cells die and are naturally eliminated by the body over the following weeks and months.
