Losing a dramatic amount of weight can result in a healthier, more comfortable lifestyle. However, there are some unwanted physical changes that come with weight loss, such as hanging tissue and loose skin. These can prevent you from showing off the hard work of your weight loss efforts, and some individuals become discouraged. With body contouring surgery, you can achieve the slim figure you’ve worked so hard for and complete your transformation!
Maintain a healthy weight
Before you can opt for body contouring, it’s important to maintain a healthy weight. Body contouring procedures are not an alternative to weight loss and should only be performed once you are within your ideal weight range. The procedure also does not prevent future weight gain, and a dramatic weight gain could reverse your procedure results. You’ll need to be ready to maintain a healthy diet and exercise even after your procedure.
Remove excess skin and tissue
After weight loss, individuals often notice their skin does not contract, resulting in sagging in multiple areas of the body including the upper arms, thighs, and abdomen. An arm lift, thigh lift, and tummy tuck can address these areas, removing excess skin and tightening the tissue to create a toned look. These procedures can be performed separately or combined for optimal contouring.
Restore breast volume
For women who have undergone a dramatic weight loss, the breasts are often negatively affected. Some might experience a loss of fullness and sagging. A breast augmentation can restore volume loss in the breasts to create a full, proportionate look with implants. A lift can also be added to restore the natural position of the breasts.
