Non-invasive body contouring is an effective way to tighten and tone areas with stubborn fat deposits or loose skin. Whether you've recently lost a significant amount of weight or you are trying to get rid of that last bit of excess fat, body contouring can help you achieve your cosmetic goals fast.
The Effects of InMode Body Contouring
The InMode machines apply targeted RF energy to fat cells, which eliminates them.
The technology heats the skin and the tissue underneath the skin. This process encourages the development of collagen, which in turn causes the skin to tighten.
The machines use electrical muscle stimulation to force muscles to contract, increasing their strength and improving their appearance.
In addition to tightening skin, RF energy can also improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and blemishes. The InMode machines also have auxiliary tools we can use to improve the appearance of veins and perform laser hair removal.

Achieving Your Ideal Body Without Surgical Procedures
Bariatric Patients Benefit from Body Contouring
Northwest EndoSurgical is primarily focused on treating obesity through bariatric surgery. Our medical director, Dr. Matthew St. Laurent, is one of the most accomplished bariatric surgeons in greater Houston, TX. He has been in practice for more than 20 years and is board-certified in general surgery.
Dr. St. Laurent introduced aesthetic body contouring to his practice because he wanted to help his bariatric patients fully achieve their weight loss goals. No matter how successful a gastric bypass or gastric sleeve surgery can be, there is always a chance that stubborn fat deposits will remain in the buttocks, thighs, arms, or abdomen. Plus, patients who rapidly lose a massive amount of weight are likely to have some amount of excess skin. Our non-invasive body contouring procedures can refine the results of bariatric surgery and give our patients the bodies they've always wanted.
Now, we are happy to make our body contouring procedures available to individuals who haven't undergone bariatric surgery. If you have a few problem areas that you wish were a little tighter, you don't have to call a plastic surgeon. Contact our Houston-area practice today and experience the benefits of body contouring without the downtime and potential complications of surgery.
Candidates for Body Contouring
Body contouring achieves the best results when patients are near their target weight and committed to maintaining that weight with proper diet and exercise. Significant weight gain or loss after contouring can adversely impact results.
Body contouring procedures aren't designed to help you lose a significant amount of weight. They are meant to improve the tone of underlying tissues after weight loss. Though these procedures can finalize your results, you must have realistic expectations.

What To Expect During Your Contouring Procedure
Most patients can see their final results at around three months.
Recovery and Aftercare
While surgical treatments can leave scars and require a recovery period, our InMode body contouring treatments do not. They require no downtime and patients can often continue with their regular activities following treatment. Some things you can do to care for your treatment site after your procedure include:
- Be gentle with your skin for the first 24 hours
- Do not wax or exfoliate for about five days
- Do not laser for about three weeks
- Avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen
- Drink plenty of water

He is truly a gifted surgeon who holds every one of his patients as his top priority. His office staff and nurses exceed expectations and are ready to help in any way. I recommend, without reservationView on Google

But honestly the whole office staff is amazing and the hospital is also amazing. When I say no complaints I mean not one at all. I give Dr. St Laurent and staff a 100 out of a 100.View on Google

Body Contouring FAQ
What is radiofrequency (RF) energy and how does it work?
Radiofrequency (RF) energy is the same type of energy we use to transmit messages over the radio, television, and our phones. Over the last 20 years, it has become increasingly popular to use RF energy in skin procedures.
RF works well for skin procedures because it can be used to safely apply heat to deep levels of the skin. This heat initiates collagen production below the skin's surface, which in turn leads to a natural healing response and tightening of the skin.
How many sessions are required?
For the best results, somewhere between four and eight sessions with InMode Evolve or InMode Evoke are often required. When you meet with our doctor for a consultation, he will probably recommend scheduling weekly visits to our Houston-area practice.
Is this option better than liposuction or a tummy tuck?
It depends on your body. If you have only a small amount of excess fat or skin, then the nonsurgical procedure is probably preferable to plastic surgeries like liposuction because you can avoid the risks and downtime associated with them.
However, if you have a thicker layer of fat or a large amount of excess skin, then we may recommend visiting a plastic surgeon for a tummy tuck or liposuction procedure. When you meet with our team for a consultation, we will honestly recommend which option is better for you.
Can you receive nonsurgical body contouring after bariatric surgery?
Yes, many patients choose to have nonsurgical body contouring done after undergoing bariatric surgery or other plastic surgery procedures like liposuction. Due to the excess skin patients may develop as they lose fat, skin tightening procedures can improve their appearance and enhance their bariatric or plastic surgery results.
Is body contouring permanent?
Body contouring can be permanent since the procedure targets and destroys the fat cells in the treated areas; however, new fat tissue can still form at the treatment site, which is why patients must be committed to living a healthy lifestyle before treatment.
