Age, sun exposure, and genetics all determine how well the skin “bounces back” after significant weight loss. For many people, the skin does not completely conform to the body’s smaller shape, and it can become sagging and cumbersome. Many men and women find that their excess skin makes them appear overweight even if they’ve met their weight-loss goal, and the excess girth limits mobility even if they are now physically fit. Body contouring procedures will rid the body of excess skin and provide several other benefits:
1. One Procedure Can Target Many Areas of the Body
More than one body contouring procedure may be performed at the same time depending on the extent of correction to be made. This is often convenient for those who have lost a significant amount of weight since these patients typically have excess skin in several areas. A lower body lift alone will remove skin from the thighs and midsection, which will make a significant improvement.
2. Significantly Improved Comfort
Without excess skin, the body not only appears firmer but also feels better. Even simple exercises like walking and jumping become easier and pain-free. No chafing or pulling, no excess weight or interference, and no unsightly jiggling can be found after certain body contouring procedures.
3. Stubborn Areas Are Finally Improved
Expensive lotions and wraps can temporarily improve excess skin, but nothing can provide the results of body contouring procedures. Stubborn areas like beneath the upper arms and the lower abdomen can be perfected with an arm lift and a tummy tuck. Sometimes, liposuction or Coolsculpting® can be used in addition to body contouring to provide even better results.
4. Safe Techniques
Body contouring procedures have been performed for decades, and the techniques are constantly improving. As with any surgery, there are risks associated with the procedure, but choosing an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Doezie lowers all risks significantly. During your consultation, Dr. Doezie will review all risks with you to help you determine if body contouring procedures will be right for you.
5. Results Are Long Lasting and Superior to Many Other Options
The results of body contouring procedures are permanent and provide superior results to less-invasive options. Body contouring procedures can remove several inches of skin and provide more dramatic results.
