Women seeking a tighter, more toned figure, may decide to turn towards surgery to help attain the physique that dieting and exercise alone cannot achieve. Dr. Rolando Morales, Houston, TX plastic surgeon, is able to create a silhouette that is firmer and smoother by using body contouring procedures to tighten loose skin, and facial fillers where volume has been lost. For women who have lost weight and are getting back into a fitness routine, these procedures can help provide a jump-start towards a toned, new figure.
Dr. Morales is well known in the Houston fitness community of gyms and trainers. As a competitive physique athlete himself, he understands the dedication and commitment it takes to improve your body. It is common for athletes to desire “fine tuning” of their bodies with breast volume restoration using breast augmentation, or the removal of stubborn areas of loose skin. Many athletes have had previous procedures, and may require revision procedures to restore their physique to a more natural appearance. Whether you need a single procedure or a combination of procedures, such as a breast lift and augmentation, or a tummy tuck, Dr. Morales has the eye of an artist and the gift of a skilled surgeon to turn your vision into stunning, natural-looking results.
"Dr. Rolando Morales is Top Notch! - Houston, TX - I'm a 39 year old mother of 5 who happily breastfed all of her children. Naturally, this caused a lot of loose skin and sagging in my breasts. My husband and I decided to move forward with the procedure so I'd have time to heal before my 40th birthday trip to Cancun, and while I was anxious about the procedure, I couldn't be happier with the results. At only 3 days post op, I already look amazing. Dr. Rolando Morales, here in Houston, made me feel very special from our first consultation until this day. He called me from his home the night of my surgery to see how I was feeling and sent 2 emails the following day. The roses and handwritten card was a lovely touch, as well. I will see him again tomorrow and will add anything I need to this review as time goes by. I may even get the courage to add photos because they are absolutely beautiful!"- N. / RealSelf / Jul 09, 2015

"55 Years Old, 2 Kids-Tummy Tuck Procedure - Houston, TX - Dr. Morales exceeded my expectations and is very honest about the final results. He gets an A+ in my book! - - Went in for surgery in May and here it is July 12th and I am moving around and healing wonderfully. The downtime is about a week and I had to stay in the hospital overnight since I had a tummy tuck. I am still a little puffy but in due time it will go down. It gets better everyday and I am loving the results."- B. / RealSelf / Jul 12, 2016
"My Transformation - Houston, TX - I had received a full tummy tuck back in March. I never thought I would consider this, but after years of getting back in shape after my 4th child, stepping on stage and doing all that I could to flatten the tummy, there was just no correcting the damage that occurred after multiple pregnancies and some huge babies! After extreme weight loss and multiple pregnancies, my stomach muscles were damaged, fascia stretched out, and my diet and exercise alone could not help this distended appearance no matter what! My surgeon was completely blown away after he learned that I stepped on stage last year and was even able to get my tummy down to do so.... I quickly learned that the min I was NOT in prep, the stomach muscles relaxed and I was back to square one. My husband and I talked it over for months trying to decide if it was even worth the time, money, and the scar that is left afterwards.... But we both decided that I had given it my all and we went ahead and planned the surgery. During this process, I learned that I had two additional hernias that needed repaired (had already had one in my belly button fixed), so we were able to get these fixed during surgery as well.Recovery has been pretty easy for me. The doctor said I was able to recovery quicker because of the great shape I was already in. The first week was painful and so hard to get up to walk around and even sleep. I had to sleep in a recliner the first two weeks. By week 4, I was back in the gym doing light cardio and training. Again, something that only my surgeon was able to agree with since my body was recovering quickly. By week 6, I was back in full swing with few restrictions! There has been much swelling since then, but each week I am seeing it go down and I love that my scar is healing much more beautiful than I thought it would.A few weeks ago my surgeon asked if I would join him as a co-guest on a Houston Morning Talk show, The Debra Duncan show, (Medical Monday segment), which is televised throughout Houston and our surrounding area. He wanted to talk about "Plastic Surgery after weight loss" (and children/mommy makeover-ish), with an emphasis on health and fitness. He also wanted to discuss post-baby, post-weight loss changes (breast deflation/sagging, excess skin of abdomen and laxity) of the body that cannot be "worked off" despite all the exercises, lasers, creams, garments, etc. He sees so many patients now that are inspired like me and by people like myself.. to push them to be healthy with their bodies, and help create lifestyles changes for the better. He mentioned he sees people who are considering "beginning their journey" into these healthier lifestyle changes, but sometimes they come in to have him do it for them (liposuction, contouring surgery, etc). What I love about my doctor is that he always encourages people who are too overweight, or just want to lose more weight to their ideal weight, to exercise, eat healthier before proceeding with plastic surgery. He believes solely in changing your lifestyle first and then proceeding with what your body can't do after you have tried those certain things. His surgical procedures are much better and even last longer if the patient is already in a better physical condition.The show is scheduled for July 11th, 2016, which is the week my husband and I are in Cancun. He tried to get the segment moved, but it just wasn't able to work. I had to sadly decline but was very excited and happy that I was asked in the first place to participate in. If you are able to, please tune in to receive more information about this topic and learn more the services and support my surgeon provides. People who know me, know that I am truly honest about my journey and I believe this is one of the reasons Dr. Morales asked me to begin with. I like to keep everything real in all aspects of my life and if I can share my story, whether it's my past, my current or even my future.... I will do so to help one person understand that some situations are nothing to be embarrassed about. I am here to help promote health and fitness. Inspire the lifestyle....but reassure those who have thought about procedures when all else has failed, it's ok. It's your body, your life, and your decision!! If you are looking for a wonderful, knowledgeable, friendly and very professional Plastic Surgeon, look no further!! I highly recommend Dr. Morales Plastic Surgery He is one of the best in Texas!"- C. / RealSelf / Jun 28, 2016
"45 Years Old, 2 Kids, 3 Pregnacies, Difficult Time Losing Fat in Some Areas, Saggy Breasts - Katy, TX - I love Dr. Morales. He was VERY patient with me. I had such a difficult time with my lipo and he realized it. He was always trying to find ways to help me heal faster. He checked on me and did everything he could to help improve my situation. He always used kind words. I could not have picked a better surgeon than Dr. Morales. He is simply amazing. - - I had breast lift and implants- this was worth it. I love my breasts. Lipo on 7 areas-I'm not sure this was worth it. I still haven't seen dramatic results on these areas like I thought I would see. I had a hard time recuperating from the lipo. Too much swelling caused me to miss work, prevented me from working out and just plain had me depressed me for months. The healing time was not what I expected at all. If I had known I would get these results and down time I probably would not have done it."- M. / RealSelf / Dec 15, 2015
Suite of Procedures
Many women feel that after losing weight, having babies, etc., that they simply cannot attain the figure they desire even with relentless workouts and a clean dieting program. Dr. Morales proves that this is possible with cosmetic surgery. Small enhancements can make huge improvements to a woman’s self-esteem, and in many cases, allows her to get back into shape with more confidence. His suite of female fitness surgeries may include one or a combination of the following procedures:
Breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures. It is especially common for women who have lost breast volume due to weight loss, but is especially desired by women who have lost volume due to weight training. It is a surgery that creates a fuller, shapelier breast, and for women who weight train, it ensures that the breasts stay full, while other areas of the body become lean.
Liposuction is a fat removal procedure that creates slimming results. Women, in particular, often find themselves battling isolated pockets of fat that remain on the thighs, hips and tummy even after fulfilling a dedicated exercise and diet program. Liposuction can remove these fat deposits and create the slimming look to jump-start a woman’s fitness regime.
Crunches, planks and sit-ups can be done daily, over and over again, but for some women it will not be enough to create the toned abdomen they desire. Because of weight loss, pregnancy and age, loose skin can reside in the abdomen. Abdominoplasty (also known as a tummy tuck surgery) can remove this loose skin, while tightening the abdominal muscles. The result is a firm, more toned stomach, which results in added self-confidence, allowing women to reach their fitness goals.
When women lose weight or embark on a serious training regime, not only is the body affected, but often, the face is as well. Weight loss and weight training can create a natural loss of volume in the face, including the cheeks, under the eyes, lips, and around the mouth. Injectable facial fillers are a great way to restore this lost volume, resulting in a smoother, fuller facial appearance. Dr. Morales offers a number of filler options depending on the volume needed and the aesthetic goals of the patient.
Women who take care of their bodies with a healthy diet and fitness program, want to look and feel good all over, not just from the neck down. BOTOX can create a “glowing” facial appearance, and help complement the figure you have worked hard to attain. BOTOX is a common injectable that relaxes the muscles under the skin so that surface winkles become softer in appearance. It is a common injection for the forehead and around the eyes.
