Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss

Large Large

Body contouring after major weight loss reduces the excess skin and fat that is left behind from the expansion of skin, loss of fat and lack of tissue elasticity that often occurs after a major weight loss.

This sagging skin commonly develops around the face and neck, upper arms, breast, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs and can make your body contour appear irregular and misshapen.

If you have undergone dramatic weight loss either through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, and you are at your optimum weight loss goal for 6 months at least, you are a good candidate for this surgery and may wish to consider undergoing this procedure.

The success of body contouring, whether it is done to reduce, enlarge or lift, is influenced by your age and by the size, shape and skin tone of the area to be treated. The contouring procedures usually leavenoticeable scars to achieve the desired result. Most patients find these scars acceptable and enjoy greater self-confidence when wearing a bathing suit or form-fitting clothes.

It is not uncommon, depending on individual patient factors and the extent of surgery needed for massive weight loss patients to have multiple operations performed in stages. In such cases, the waiting period between surgeries ranges from weeks to few months.
