Importance of Body Contouring after Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery and body contouring are the most common and more expensive surgeries these days. Body contouring helps patient’s skin fit their new body. After a massive amount of weight loss, most patients have loose and saggy skin that can cause wounds, rashes, infection and limit comfortable mobility.

Body contouring after a significant weight loss improves the shape and tones the underlying tissues that support fat and skin and removes excess sagging fat and skin.

Typical problems that occur after a significant weight loss include:

Loss of breast volume, droopiness or breast ptosis: Most women consider breast lift after weight loss. It can be done with or without the addition of breast implants to remove the shape, cleavage and fullness. For men there are various breast reduction techniques available based on the extent of correction required.

Sagging of the facial skin: Facelift, forehead lift and eyelid surgery are the required procedures to achieve complete facial rejuvenation.

Excess abdominal skin: Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty or lower body lift is the most preferred procedure after weight loss surgery. Total lower body lift can help to contour the entire lower body such as hips, abdomen, buttocks, outer and posterior thighs.

Skin hanging under the arms: Arm lift surgery is the needed procedure to lift and tighten the skin of the arms.

Wrinkling and excessive bagginess of the thighs: A thigh lift surgery can lift the inner thighs, while a lower body lift can deal with the outer and posterior parts of the thighs.
