Body contouring describes a set of procedures to target sagging skin, excess fat and loose tissues, creating a more beautiful body shape. Body contouring is both an art and science, and requires the meticulous techniques of a surgeon like Dr. Alexander Ereso. With his help, you can attain the attractive body contours and contours you deserve.
Body Contouring Candidates
You may be a candidate for body contouring if you eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly, yet have not been able to change your shape through your lifestyle choices. Maybe you have excess skin after pregnancy or losing a significant amount of weight. This is very common and easily treatable with body contouring.
When evaluating you for body contouring, Dr. Ereso will ensure that you are in good general health, do not smoke (or can quit prior to surgery) and do not have any medical conditions that could increase the chance of complications during or after your procedure. For the best results, you should be prepared to maintain your healthy lifestyle; if you are looking for a “quick fix” or substitute for diet or exercise, Dr. Ereso may gently discourage you from undergoing surgery.
Benefits of Body Sculpting
Body contouring will eliminate pesky fat and reshape your “problem areas.” Certain procedures can remove loose skin and restore a firm quality to loose, saggy skin. With a slimmer shape and firmer skin, you should feel a boost of self-confidence.
What Areas Can Be Treated
Body contouring can treat virtually any area of the upper or lower body. The most commonly treated areas include the:

Body Contouring Costs & Financing
Body contouring costs depend on factors such as the chosen procedure and your final goals.

Financing is also available through CareCredit.
