Body Contouring After Major Weight Loss

Following weight reduction surgery, or any substantial amount of weight loss, the skin and tissues often lack elasticity and cannot conform to the reduced body size. As a result, skin that has been severely stretched is now unsupported:

  • Upper arms may sag and appear loose and full
  • Breasts may flatten and hang with nipples pointed down
  • Buttocks, groin and thighs can sag and cause hanging pockets of skin
  • Abdominal area may extend around the sides and into the lower back area, resulting in an apron-like overhang

Surgical body contouring following major weight loss improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin, and removes excess sagging fat and skin. The result is a more normal appearance to the body, with smoother contours. This is, in essence, the final phase of your total weight loss experience.
