It’s about time you start feeling comfortable and confident in your own body. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Cara Downey, and her expert team of professionals are proud to offer body contouring procedures to residents of Houston, Sugar Land, The Woodlands, and the neighboring communities in east Texas.
What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring procedures at Heights Plastic Surgery refer to the surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures that reduce fat, build muscle, tighten skin and create an overall more fit and youthful appearance on the arms, legs, and midsection of the patient. Dr. Cara Downey has more than 12 years of experience giving patients the bodies they worked hard for and deserve. All of our body contouring procedures should not be viewed as a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise; rather, they should be seen as a complement to an already healthy lifestyle. If you’re unsure which plastic surgery procedures are right for you, come in for a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Downey. She’ll sit down with you, listen to your concerns, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan for you based on your desired results.

How Much Does Body Contouring Cost Cost in Houston, TX?
The total cost for your body contouring procedure will depend on factors such as your surgeon’s fee, the location of your procedure, and other miscellaneous medical expenses. At Heights Plastic Surgery, we accept cash and all major credit cards. We are also happy to offer in-house financing through CareCredit® for patients on a case-by-case basis. Because body contouring is typically more about the cosmetic appearance of the breast and is less of a medical necessity, it is typically not covered by most insurance plans.
What Body Contouring Procedures Are Offered at Heights Plastic Surgery?
At Heights Plastic Surgery, Dr. Cara Downey and her team of professionals offer the following body contouring procedures.

- Tummy Tuck
- Average Cost: $3,000 to $12,000

- Brazilian Butt Lift
- Average Cost: $8,000 to $12,000
- The Brazilian butt lift involves harvesting fat from one area of the body via liposuction to be purified and transferred into the buttocks, creating a more shapely, firm behind.
- Butt Implants
- Average Cost: $5,000 to $8,000
- Butt implants can be used in conjunction with a Brazilian butt lift or can be used alone in the event that a patient would like a larger buttock but does not have fat to donate from a different area of the body.
- Lower Body Lift
- Average Cost: $8,000 to $15,000
- The lower body lift gives our patients who have undergone a massive weight loss the opportunity to get rid of the excess sagging skin around their midsection, lower back, and thighs.
- Average Cost: $4,000 to $6,000
- Labiaplasty is a cosmetic feminine procedure that reduces the size of the labia minora to create more symmetry in the patient and reduce discomfort when wearing tight-fitting clothes.
