It may be necessary to contour the body after losing a significant amount of weight, whether the loss of excess weight was achieved through a strict diet or bariatric surgery. While it is exciting to see the pounds drop away, many are dismayed to be left with stretched skin that droops and hangs, requiring surgical body contouring. At University Plastic Surgeons, we assist those who need to recontour the body and create a more pleasing, attractive appearance, free from sagging skin and tissue.
Your Body Contouring Procedure
As body contouring is a customized surgical plan, the procedures involved will vary. For a very extensive body contouring, the new body contour will be achieved in stages. One or more procedures may be performed in one surgical appointment, depending upon what is needed in your case.
Customized Body Contouring Procedure
Every patient is different, and your body contouring procedure will be planned to address your unique problems. The range of procedures that may be required include:
- Tummy Tuck Addresses loose abdominal muscles and any hanging "apron" of excess skin.
- Lower Body Lift Corrects the appearance of the lower body, addressing abdomen, buttocks, the groin area, and outer portion of the thighs
- Breast Lift The skin on the breasts may have stretched, and as the excess weight is lost, the breasts are left lower on the chest and look saggy and loose, requiring a breast lift
- Arm Lift Many patients who have lost significant weight are left with an abundance of excess skin on the upper arms that must be tightened and sculpted
- Thigh Lift For a total thigh tightening, a more complete surgical procedure can resolve the sagging skin and tissue on the entire thigh region
- Liposuction Advanced liposuction may be employed to extract any lingering pockets of excess fat on various body areas
