Skin Tightening Surgery After Massive Weight Loss
Given all of the health problems associated with morbid obesity, it’s no surprise that more and more people are trying to lose weight, whether through natural means or bariatric surgery. What many come to realize once they’ve shed those excess pounds is that they require cosmetic enhancement afterward. It’s for that reason that so many New Jersey plastic surgery patients come to our practice inquiring about body sculpting and body contouring.
Dealing With Excess and Stretched Out Skin
You see, excess weight will lead to issues with skin laxity. As you gain weight, your skin can expand to accommodate the additional weight. Once that weight is lost, your skin will only be able to revert back so far. This is natural, and it can be a major concern for you aesthetically and in terms of your self-esteem.
The Only Option is Body Contouring Surgery
In order to reduce the appearance of stretched out skin and revise your overall body contour, the only option you have is to undergo various surgeries for body contouring. These surgeries are safe and effective, and they can all be combined in various ways to achieve a total revision of your appearance. Let’s take a moment right now to look a the various options for body contouring avaialble.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
One of the most common and most popular surgeries for body sculpting is New Jersey tummy tuck. During a tummy tuck, excess skin is removed from the lower abdominal area, allowing for less sagging of the belly. The surgery can be extended to reduce excess skin around the sides if needed.
Breast Lift and Enhancement Surgery
The chest and breasts can both be affected by fluctuations in weight. It’s for that reason that many people undergo breast lift surgery in order to improve the overall appearance of the breast area. In some cases, patients request a combined breast augmentation and lift in order to improve the overall appearance of the breasts.
Arm Lift Surgery
The upper arms can be altered a great deal by fluctuations in weight. This may mean flabby tricep areas or shoulder areas. To address these problems, there is arm lift surgery. By getting an arm lift, the excess skin can be removed and a more athletic or appealing appearance developed.
Butt Lift Surgery
The lower body is subject to many issues with body contour following major weight loss. It’s for that reason that the butt lift is so popular. During a butt lift surgery, excess skin and fat is removed from the buttocks, allowing you to achieve a more toned and attractive appearance.
Total Body Lift
Combining numerous surgeries is often known as a body lift. This is an especially important consideration if you were morbidly obese and have lost a lot of weight. A body lift should not be initiated until a certain degree of weight loss has been achieved, however. It’s important to discuss these issues with your physician.
