Losing weight following bariatric surgery can lead to many health improvements. Unfortunately, an immense weight loss can also leave you with extra lax skin that hangs off your body. To achieve the slim figure you’ve been waiting for, you might consider one of these plastic surgery procedures post-weight loss!
A body lift combines procedures to target the upper or lower body. If your excess skin is present in the lower body, you might receive surgery to remove extra skin from the thighs, abdomen, hips, flanks, and buttocks. For the upper body, procedures will target the upper back, breasts, and arms. During your procedures, the extra skin will be removed, and underlying tissue may be tightened to achieve a well-contoured figure.
If most of your loose skin is present in the abdominal region, you might choose to have a tummy tuck as part of your post-weight loss procedure. This procedure can be customized to address your unique concerns when it comes to your midsection. After a tummy tuck, you can enjoy a flatter stomach and wear tighter clothes more comfortably!
For women who have undergone weight loss, the breasts can also be affected. If you experience sagging breasts due to extra skin, you could benefit from a breast augmentation with implants to restore volume or a lift to remove extra skin and lift the breasts to their natural position.
An arm or thigh lift can also be added to your body contouring procedure. Loose skin can be removed, and underlying tissue can be tightened to tone the arms or thighs.
Liposuction is a great procedure to have if you suffer from stubborn fat. It can be done alone or added to virtually any procedure to enhance results. Through small incisions, liposuction can remove stubborn fat cells for good to achieve a slimmer overall contour.
