Significant weight loss leaves many people with heavy, loose folds of skin around the abdomen, arms, thighs, breasts, buttocks and face. Like a deflated balloon, it fails to shrink back to its former size and shape. Excess skin makes getting dressed a chore, impedes mobility, and can cause hygiene and medical problems. Chronic skin-on-skin contact can result in rashes and other sores, which can lead to infection. Of course, excess skin is also a cosmetic issue. People who have undergone dramatic weight loss want their bodies to reflect their new, more positive self-image. Body contouring procedures are the only way to remove the excess skin left after extensive weight loss. Skin-trimming procedures will help your clothes fit better and will allow you to participate more comfortably in your favorite activities. Our expert’s offers body contouring procedures that are designed for people who have lost massive amounts of weight.
Our experienced surgeons provide consistent, satisfying results tailored to the individual patient’s needs. To help determine whether you are likely to have a good outcome from body contouring surgery, our experienced plastic surgeons will consider some factors. They will be done based on each person’s body condition. Skin reduction surgery can be done in any stage of our life to minimize complications such as infection and blood loss. The surgeries are often done over a period of years, addressing one or two areas of the body at a time. Also, touch-up surgeries are often required later. Your surgeon will recommend a strategy tailored to address all of your needs in the safest and most efficient manner.
