How Much Does High-Quality Body Contouring Cost?
The cost of liposuction depends on the extent of the procedure, the size of the treatment area(s) and time.
Is Liposuction Right for Me?
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that provides targeted sculpting to problem areas where pockets of fat are stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise. However, it is important to remember that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. Potential patients who may struggle with obesity are encouraged to consider other options if they are morbidly overweight. If you have a significant amount of weight you want to lose, it’s best to postpone liposuction until you are within 10-15 pounds of your ideal body weight.
At your personal consultation with Dr. Bonnor M.D, F.A.C.S. at Texas Surgical Arts, he will assess your candidacy for liposuction and other body contouring procedures. To schedule an appointment, contact us online or call (281) 579-5638.
Stubborn fat can collect anywhere on the abdomen and our 360 Degree Liposuction procedure accounts for this by treating all of these areas in just one session. Lipo 360° is both efficient and cost-effective because it contours the entire midsection, including the belly, flanks and lower back.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
After liposuction or substantial weight loss, many of our patients are bothered by loose, excess skin. Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence when the skin has been stretched beyond the point where it can recover its elasticity. A tummy tuck at Texas Surgical Arts solves this problem. During an abdominoplasty, Dr. Bonnor artfully removes excess skin and tightens muscle. Women who have been pregnant or anyone who has experienced dramatic weight loss may need to bring the separated midline muscles back to their original position. This will help achieve the maximum benefit from a tummy tuck.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Liposuction is worth the investment for patients who seek a sculpted and appealing physique. Liposuction also pairs well with other surgeries like fat grafting and abdominoplasty. Bariatric patients will find benefits to strategic body contouring even after they have lost weight. That’s because stubborn pockets of fat can persist in the belly, thighs and love handles in spite of a healthy and active lifestyle. However, liposuction is a body-contouring procedure, not a weight loss procedure. This is an important fact for those with a high body mass index (BMI).
