Whether it’s 50 pounds or several hundred pounds, weight loss may transform your life. Obesity, as well as critical illnesses like diabetes and sleep apnea, can be reversed. The risk of heart disease and cancer is also reduced. But, once the weight is lost, many people face another thorny issue: sagging skin. Excess skin can cause rashes and fungal infections between the skin folds. Moreover, it can be uncomfortable for certain people. Other potential difficulties include reduced movement, trouble peeing and sexual function issues.

body contouring

After extreme weight reduction, your skin lacks the suppleness to restore to its original form, resulting in:

  • Excess skin and a sagging upper arm.
  • Breasts are flattened and may point downwards.
  • The skin surrounding your abdomen may droop.
  • Skin pockets that hang around the butt.

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is a type of cosmetic surgery. It is becoming more popular for fixing loose, heavy folds of skin that remain on your body after excessive weight loss.

Reshaping your body after a significant weight reduction enhances your image. Body contouring will significantly improve your arms, back, thighs, stomach, and breasts. As a result, you’ll have a more typical body image by removing drooping skin and fat and replacing it with minor or concealed scars.

  • After extreme weight loss, the surgery removes extra skin and tightens the surrounding tissue.
  • Scars are kept to a minimum, thanks to advanced cosmetic surgery procedures.
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as post-bariatric body contouring procedures, are used.

What Role does a Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon Play?

Plastic surgery for body contouring can enhance the results you’ve already achieved after reducing weight. Our surgeons will assist you. In particular, in determining which plastic surgery operations are suitable for you, including:

  • Body Toning – tightening loose skin and tissues on the stomach, waist, hips, buttocks, and outer thighs for a smoother, more compact form.
  • Arm Liftincisions along the back of the arms are used to smooth and tighten the skin of the upper arms.
  • Thigh Liftcontour and tighten the groin and inner thigh skin and tissues.
  • Liposuctionused to remove localized fat deposits from the arms, chin, thighs, and hips.
  • Stomach Tuckto flatten your tummy and contour your waist.
  • Breast Proceduressuch as breast reduction and lift, can enhance the contour of the breasts.

Significant weight gain has a negative impact on your skin. The skin gradually extends to accommodate the buildup of fat tissue. Excess skin may not spring back into place if you lose a lot of weight. Stretch marks emerge. Skin folds on the lower belly, thighs, arms, chin, and breasts might occur due to weight reduction.

When a patient seeks correction from a plastic surgeon through body contouring, it’s critical to choose the correct team. That is one that inspires trust, confidence, and a sense of well-being.
