What Are Medical Aesthetics in Austin?

Medical aesthetics include a variety of in-office treatments created to subtly enhance a person’s face, neck, or body. Many of these procedures involve devices that sculpt and firm the skin, or use injections that soften or enhance your appearance. Generally, these treatments require minimal downtime, and most procedures take an hour or less to complete.

At B+A Medical Aesthetics, our specialty is aesthetic procedures that can smooth and tone your body post-weight reduction surgery or extensive weight loss.

Weight Loss at B+A

B+A Surgeons is a family team founded by Dr. Nicole Basa and Dr. Alan Abando over 17 years ago. As a practice that specializes in bariatrics, we offer patients a comprehensive approach to weight loss to ensure they see success. We have curated a safe, caring environment where you can transform into the healthiest, happiest version of yourself.

Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery is the most effective option for long-term weight loss. Our years of experience in this specialized field allow us to support you throughout your surgical journey. Choosing one of these procedures may feel intimidating, but we are here to help.

B+A Surgeons offer 4 different types of bariatric surgeries to our patients:

Gastric Sleeve: This surgery removes approximately 75% of the stomach. It helps reduce hunger signals and restricts caloric intake.

Gastric Bypass: This procedure reroutes part of the digestive tract to decrease caloric absorption and reduce the size of the stomach.

Modified Duodenal Switch (SADI): This surgery combines a gastric bypass (where part of the stomach is rerouted) and sleeve gastrectomy (where intestines are rerouted).

Gastric Band Removal: We don’t perform gastric band surgery because it typically provides ineffective results. However, we can remove your band and, if you’d like, replace it with a more effective weight loss solution.

Weight Loss Program

We created our comprehensive weight loss program to help patients achieve their weight loss goals without necessarily undergoing weight loss surgery. We incorporate the following methods within our program to address patients’ needs:

Post-Weight Loss Aesthetics

The following medical aesthetics in Austin treatments are ideal for helping patients contour their bodies following significant weight loss.

Non-Invasive Treatments
Evolve Transform

Evolve Transform uses radiofrequency (RF) to create heat in your skin’s subdermal layers, followed by vacuum shaping and energy pulses to contour your figure. Evolve’s 3-technology approach helps:

  • Tone muscle
  • Tighten skin
  • Eliminate fat
  • Smooth cellulite
Evolve Details

After your consultation, we’ll schedule your first Evolve appointment. For the best results, we advise clients to have 6 to 8 sessions, each 1.5 hours long.

Evolve is a pain-free procedure, but sometimes, patients feel mild suctioning, warmth, and muscle contractions during the treatment.

We can treat all skin types with Evolve and can use this technology on the following body areas:

  • Arms
  • Legs and thighs
  • Abdomen, love handles, and stomach
  • Buttocks
  • Back

While you won’t have to take any time off to recover from Evolve, we recommend the following post-procedure regime to speed up its firming and trimming effect:

  • Keep skin moisturized
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Eat healthy food

EMSCULPT uses radiofrequency (RF) and high-frequency focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to build muscle and eliminate fat. The non-invasive technology works by:

  • Using RF energy to get rid of excess fat cells and firm skin by stimulating your body to create elastin and collagen.
    Using HIFEM to trigger rapid muscle contractions to build muscle and stimulate your body to shed fat cells.

After your consultation, we will schedule your first EMSCULPT appointment. For the best results, we advise patients to have 2 treatments a week for 3 weeks. Each appointment is 30 minutes long.

We use EMSCULPT to contour the following areas:

  • Abdominal muscles
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Calves
  • Arms

This treatment is pain-free; most patients only notice the feeling of their muscles contracting during their appointment.

Anyone can benefit from this treatment and will see the best results that can last more than 12 months if they maintain a healthy lifestyle post-EMSCULPT.

Minimally-Invasive Treatments

Morpheus8 uses microneedling and radiofrequency laser technology to tighten and firm skin on the face and neck. It can also address stretch marks and scarring on the body.

Morpheus8 Details

We recommend patients get 3 treatments, which we’ll schedule and space apart during your initial consultation. Each treatment is 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the area we’re treating.

Because Morpheus8 is minimally invasive, we apply numbing cream to the area we’re treating. We may also advise you to take an over-the-counter painkiller to help control any sensations you may feel during the treatment.

Morpheus8 Recovery

After Morpheus8 treatment, most people notice 2 to 3 days of swelling and redness and need 3 to 5 days for their skin to recover. This is the general recovery timeline you can expect:

  • The first 48 hours after treatment: Avoid sun exposure, do not apply makeup, and do not exercise. We advise patients to sleep on their backs with their heads elevated to minimize pain and swelling.
  • Day 2 through 4: Skin may start to peel and feel dry.
  • Day 5 through 7: Skin irritation will have diminished.

We’ll provide detailed post-procedure skincare instructions so you know how to care for, cleanse, and moisturize your skin following your treatment.

BodyTite With Lipo and Skin Excision

BodyTite works by using 2 electrodes, one of which is placed under your skin into fatty tissue, while the other is placed on top of your skin. The electrode on top of the skin melts the fat, while the internal electrode removes it.

BodyTite Details

This procedure is considered minimally invasive surgery. It takes an hour to complete in addition to the liposuction, and patients typically only need 1 treatment. You’ll need to prepare for 2 to 10 days of downtime, and will see results for approximately 5 years.

We can use BodyTite to treat the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Knees
  • Neck
Additional Medical Aesthetics in Austin Treatments

We also offer a range of other aesthetic options to help people address loose or sagging skin on their neck and face or to help eliminate excess facial and neck fat:


Kybella is an injectable treatment containing deoxycholic acid. It can eliminate submental fullness caused by fat below the chin. It’s a good option for people who have lost weight but struggle to eliminate it in the neck and chin.

Most patients need 3 to 6 treatments spaced 1 month apart. Each injection takes 15 to 20 minutes, and you’ll typically see results within 4 to 6 weeks. There is little to no downtime following your injection.


MyEllevate involves using the ICLED® Surgical System to place a suture support system within your skin without visible incisions.

Once the doctors have administered local anesthetic, Dr. Basa or Dr. Abando will make small 1 mm punctures near your platysma muscle bands and place the sutures around your muscles. They will gently reposition the tissues and lift your neck.

This procedure takes 1 hour and typically requires 2 weeks of downtime. With proper maintenance, your results can last up to 5 years.


FaceTite can tighten the skin in the lower face and neck with adjustable-depth fractional RF energy combined with bipolar RF. We use this procedure to address skin that has lost elasticity, sagging jowls, and double chin fat.

Patients will need to take some time off following FaceTite and wear a compression garment throughout the day and night for 3 days. Most patients see results in 3 to 4 months that last up to 5 years.
