Finish a Weight Loss Journey with Body Contouring

After successfully putting in the time and effort to lose weight (great job!), you may be discouraged to learn that some work remains to be done. Loose, sometimes sagging skin is frequently left behind after losing weight. Body contouring can reduce the excess skin that is still around even after the fat is gone.

Overview of the Problem

Weight loss conceptWe don’t need to tell you that losing weight is great for your health; it reduces the risk of many obesity-related health issues. At the same time, losing a significant amount of weight can bring up other issues—mainly the amount of that is often left ‘hanging’ after the weight beneath it is lost. Loose skin is commonly present in the chest, abdomen, back, arms, buttocks, hips, and thighs; however, every body adapts to weight loss differently, and skin can be left behind anywhere on the body. A body contouring procedure can resolve this problem for many patients.

Circumferential Lower Body Lift

The most common problem areas we see with our patients are the abdomen, flanks (love handles), hips, buttocks, and thighs. The procedures involved with this type of body contouring surgery of the lower body can be complex. That is why Dr. Franckle typically counsels our patients about targeting these areas first to resolve them before moving up to the chest and down to the legs. Most patients recover in minimal time, and they feel satisfied with the notable improvements to the midsection of the body.

Additional Procedures

After recovering from the first operations, patients can expand their body contouring to the chest and arms to eliminate excess skin in these regions. Depending on the individual patient, this process may involve more than one surgery to achieve the desired results. After resolving the upper body issues, a thigh lift is typically the final step. Tightening skin in the legs will provide patients with a firm and smooth contour.

Anyone who has lost a large amount of weight has reached a significant goal. Dropping pounds and reducing fat is not an easy process, so anyone in this situation deserves to feel proud of this accomplishment. Many patients agree that a body contouring procedureafter their weight loss helps them gain the sleek and svelte physique that they desire.
