Body Contouring after Major Weight Loss

Once an overweight person loses excess weight through diet and exercise, it’s not uncommon to have layers of excess skin afterwards. After working so hard to lose the weight, it can be frustrating to have this stretched-out skin draping over a newly thinner frame.Fortunately, there is something that can be done about this undesirable situation. In the plastic surgery world, it is referred to as body contouring after major weight loss.

Some of the more common body-contouring procedures that help reduce excess skin include the body lift, breast lift, arm lift, and thigh lift.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, body contouring after major weight loss can improve one’s shape and tone the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin; it also removes the excess sagging fat and skin.The results of body contouring after major weight loss are immediately visible. However, it’s important to note that the final finished product may take one or two years to achieve depending on the procedures performed and the time it takes to fully heal.
