Why seek a Body Contouring Procedure?
Body contouring after major weight loss improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports your fat and skin — and removes excess sagging fat and skin. 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, possibly resulting in:
- Upper arms that may sag and appear loose and full
- Breasts that may flatten and hang with nipples pointed downward
- An abdominal area that may extend around the sides and into the lower back area in an apron-like overhang
- Buttocks, groin and thighs can sag and cause hanging pockets of skin
Body contouring results in smoother contours and a more normal appearance to the body. This is, in essence, the final phase of your total weight-loss experience.
