OVERVIEW

Weight loss whether though diet and exercise or through bariatric surgery is a great accomplishment you should be excited about and proud of. However, many patients don’t realize the kind of physical changes they may see after achieving their weight loss. After fat tissue is lost, your body may experience the burden of loose extra skin or isolated pockets of fat tissue that are resistant to any further diet and exercise. There are many body contouring procedures you may wish to consider after achieving your weight loss to create a more contoured and smooth silhouette.

Loose skin after weight loss restrict your mobility, it makes everyday movement and exercise much harder, and is also aesthetically unappealing. Additionally, pregnancy and aging can contribute to skin excess. Many patients feel embarrassed to reveal their bodies even after losing a significant amount of weight. Body contouring procedures can help you feel more confident in your body again.

To achieve the best contoured result sometimes requires several staged operations. A combination of procedures may be performed at each stage to address several areas at once that need tightening or contouring. These staged procedures are performed several month apart to allow maximal healing between operations.

PROCEDURES
  • Lower Body Lift

Lower body lifts allows for tightening the buttock, hips, abdomen, back of the thighs, and outer thighs. Most commonly circumferential lower body lift is combined with a tummy tuck to address excess skin and fat all the way around lower torso. Alternatively, lower body lift can be performed at the same time as a thigh lift.

  • Upper Body Lift

An upper body lift may include surgery to remove fat on the back along the bra line, arm lifts, or breast lifts. This allows for a more toned upper body.

  • Tummy Tuck

Also called abdominoplasty is one of the most popular body contouring procedures. It allows for removal of extra fat and skin from the stomach and restores a flatter abdominal contour.

  • Arm Lift

Remove excess skin of ‘bat wings’ that are so dreaded by many patients. Skin in the arms becomes saggy as a result of weight loss or aging. Arm lift helps to restore a smoother arm appearance.

  • Thigh Lift

Removes fat cells and excess skin from the inner thighs producing more toned thighs and a slimmer silhouette. Loose skin in the thigh may not only be unattractive, but also be a source of discomfort for patients causing chafing and making wearing clothing uncomfortable.

  • Liposuction

Extremely popular body contouring procedure that reduces stubborn fat deposits by permanently removing fat cells. Liposuction can be done on several different body areas at one operation. If you have stubborn fat that does not respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be the key to improving your appearance.

  • Breast Surgery

Breast surgery is often performed for massive weight loss patients. Breasts are very susceptible to size changes with changes in weight and with pregnancy and breastfeeding. With all of those changes taking place, you may be left with saggy, deflated breasts or breast size that does not match the rest of you body frame. Breast reduction, breast lift or even breast augmentation with an implant can help reduce the size of the breasts if needed restore breast volume and shape, or move them to a more natural position on the chest wall.

  • Facial Surgery

Facial surgery is surprisingly often needed after weight loss. Most patients don’t realize that the face changes with weight loss. You may notice sagging skin around jowls and neck and hollow appearance in the cheeks. Facelift or neck lift can refresh your face by removal of excess skin and give you a more youthful appearance.
