Excess skin is an issue that can come about in several ways. After childbirth, the breasts and abdominal skin is often stretched as a result of dramatic growth. Once the areas become smaller, the skin stays at its larger size, drooping from the body. Body contouring as part of a mommy makeover procedure removes this skin.
Body contouring also makes a major difference after massive weight-loss surgeries like the Lap Band or a gastric bypass. If it has been at least a year since the surgery, your tissues will be ready for a body lift.
When a person ages, their skin loses its elasticity over time, becoming less tight. It sags, hanging off of the body as excess skin.
Regardless of the reason for your excess skin, body contouring is an effective solution that helps more and more people every day. To find out more, speak with Dr. Venkata Erella, a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience. Contact our office for a consultation.
