Realizing your dream of losing weight is a difficult journey but is ultimately very rewarding. Following a significant weight loss, often after Bariatric Surgery, pregnancy, or diet and exercise regimens, many people cannot enjoy their new bodies due to remaining excess skin. Luckily, there are many options for Plastic Surgery After Weight Loss, including Body Contouring and Body Lift to help patients eliminate this loose skin after weight loss and achieve the body that they’ve dreamed of, and worked so hard for.
Body Contouring: removes excess sagging fat and skin while improving the shape of the underlying support tissue.
Body lift: removes excess sagging fat and skin and can improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface, commonly known as cellulite. Areas that a body lift may include:
- Abdominal area: locally or extending around the sides and into the lower back region
- Buttocks: low, fat or uneven shape
- Groin: may sag into the inner thigh
- Thigh: inner, outer, posterior or thigh’s circumference
Plastic Surgery After Weight Loss at Ohio Plastic Surgery Specialists is a great solution for people in good health who have excess skin after a dramatic weight loss. Patients who undergo weight loss surgery are forced to make serious dietary changes that help them lose a tremendous amount weight very quickly, but many are then restricted in the clothing they can wear and the activities they can participate in because of excess skin that can make anyone feel self-conscious. By the same token, people who have lost a significant amount of weight following a healthy change in their diet and exercise regime, or after pregnancy, also deal with the unpleasant side effects of loose, excess skin around not only their breasts, abdomen, and thighs, but also other areas of their bodies.
