Body Contouring in Sugar Land, TX

Residents of Sugar Land, Texas, and Houston, Texas rely on Dr. David Stapenhorst for the highest quality care in Body Contouring. Body Contouring refers to a range of procedures used by Dr. Stapenhorst to improve the tone and overall appearance of the body. For an individual patient, Dr. Stapenhorst may recommend one or more Body Contouring procedure. Body Contouring is also used to help patients who have experienced massive weight loss. When obese patients lose significant amounts of weight, the skin does not have the elasticity needed to “snap” back into place. As a result, these patients have a significant volume of sagging skin.

Dr. Stapenhorst uses Body Contouring procedures to improve the appearance of the neck, upper arms, breasts, abdomen, back, hips, thighs and buttocks. Some of the most requested procedures are tummy tucks, thigh lifts, arm lifts, buttock lifts and liposuction. Other popular procedures include breast augmentations and breast reductions for women. Men who suffer from gynecomastia, or enlarged breasts, rely on Dr. David Stapenhorst for their male breast reduction procedures.

Dear Patients,

I am announcing the closure of my practice, Signature Plastic Surgery. Effective December 31, 2022, I
will be moving on to a new practice opportunity. I have enjoyed serving the people of Sugar Land since
2008. This has been a difficult decision for me to make, but I am looking forward to the new
opportunity, and I know that I will look back fondly on the past 14 years.
