Dr. Rumalla knows that every patient is different, so he will tailor your contouring treatment to your unique goals.
Improve Your Body ImageEven 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.

Who Can Body Contouring Benefit?
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 WeightPatients 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-SmokerSmoking 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 LifestyleIn order to maintain their results, patients must be committed to a healthy lifestyle that includes a well-balanced diet and regular exercise.
"He Was Extremely Caring, Knowledgeable and Genuine"
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!View On Google
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 SurgeryView On Google
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 Surgeryin 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.

SmartLipo and Cellulaze
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.

After assessing all areas of concern, our team will work with you to create a customized plan and treatment timeline so you know just what to expect every step of the way.
What Is Body Contouring Recovery Like?
Whether you’ve undergone a tummy tuck or combined several procedures, body contouring recovery can vary. Recovery is around four to six weeks or longer before patients can resume normal activity, although some may return to desk work in less time.
Some patients may need to wear compression garments to speed up the recovery process and help with circulation. It is crucial that you avoid physical strain until you are cleared by Dr. Rumalla, or you could risk tissue damage.
At our facility in Fort Worth, TX, we ask our patients to attend all follow-up appointments so we can assess the results and ensure recovery is going as planned.
How Long Do Results Last?
Results can last 10 years or more. It's important to keep in mind that as you age, your results will change. The best way to achieve long-lasting results is to maintain a steady weight and regular exercise after your recovery. Leading a healthy lifestyle allows you to get the most out of your plastic surgery results.
