Body Contouring in Austin Texas

Improve your body’s curves through a safe and non-surgical cosmetic approach

While a nutritionally balanced diet and exercise offer a clear path to weight loss, often times it’s not enough to eliminate those stubborn fat pockets around the midsection, buttocks, thighs, and arms or reduce unsightly cellulite. Why not get your body bikini-ready now by taking the fast track to losing excess body fat, reducing cellulite and tightening and firming your entire body?

At Ruthie Harper, MD, we offer both women and men several safe and effective non-surgical cosmetic approaches for reducing localized fat deposits, sculpting areas of fat accumulation, and removing cellulite to promote a smooth, slim appearance. Our body-shaping programs also include laser treatments and mesotherapy to help tone and tighten loose skin.


Mesotherapy injections are a safe and non-surgical cosmetic approach for reducing localized fat deposits, reducing cellulite, and tightening and firming skin. It’s a safe and highly effective body contouring solution for reducing fat and removing cellulite in targeted body areas without going under the knife.

Pioneered by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952, mesotherapy is a minimally invasive, non-surgical alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures including liposuction. In fact, mesotherapy is often the treatment of choice to correct lumps, divots, and unevenness that can develop as a result of liposuction surgery.

Mesotherapy treatments involve injecting a specific combination of natural plant extracts, pharmaceutical agents, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into targeted areas—such as love handles, belly fat, saddle-bag thighs, or even a double chin. In addition, mesotherapy treats cellulite by breaking up the connective tissue bands that trap fat and cause the dimpled effect. This helps prevent accumulation of new fat, leaving a smooth, dimple-free appearance on your skin.

Given its exceptional fat-reducing and rejuvenation capabilities, we have developed specific mesotherapy protocols to:

  • Reduce cellulite and contour fat.
  • Tone and tighten sagging skin on the neck, legs, abdomen, arms, and hands.
  • Treat stretch marks, scars, and wrinkles.
  • Rejuvenate and hydrate aging skin.

The procedure generally takes 30 minutes or less and requires no preparation or recovery time. Because there is no surgery, there is no risk from anesthesia and no post-surgical downtime. Generally, patients require 4 to 10 treatments typically spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart and they begin to see changes in the treated area after their 4th treatment.

Laser Skin Tightening & Rejuvenation

Genetics, aging, and weight loss can all leave you with areas of uneven skin texture or that “orange-peel” appearance. Our laser skin tightening and skin rejuvenation treatments use laser energy to stimulate your skin’s natural regeneration of collagen and elastin. The resulting increase in collagen helps minimize sagging, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks, and other irregularities, giving you more youthful-looking, smooth, and healthy skin.

We often recommend a series of laser skin tightening treatments in conjunction with our weight loss programs and cellulite treatments to produce the most dramatic results.

These laser treatments are perfect for all skin types and almost anywhere on your body, including face, neck and décolleté, abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks, and knees. Treatment programs vary with each patient, but we typically recommend 4 to 6 treatments that are spaced one month apart to achieve optimal results.
