Losing weight is a big step towards wellness. But sometimes when you lose too much weight, you end up not liking what you see in the mirror. This is because of the loose skin and tissues left behind hanging from most parts of your body. It happens because the skin lacks the elasticity to return to its original form or adapt to the size of your new body.
When this happens, it is time you decide to have a body contouring procedure to get rid of the hanging skin and tissue, as well as uneven bulges and curves. There are many procedures that you can opt for body contouring which include Abdominoplasty (Tummy tuck), Brachioplasty (Arm lift), Mastopexy (Breast lift) and Buttocks and thigh lifts.
Here, we will explore how these procedures are performed and how body contouring is beneficial for you.
The body contouring procedures might be accomplished in a single session, or you can arrange with your surgeon to have it done in stages, or one section of your body at a time. Most commonly, body contouring is done within three stages under general anesthesia.
Abdominoplasty: This procedure is used to remove excess or hanging skin from your stomach area. If done by a professional and experienced surgeon, your tummy is left toned and firm.
Mastopexy: During this procedure, the surgeon usually trims off the sagging skin of the breast and re-positions them on an upward level. During some occasions the breasts might require an implant to replace the fat you lost during your weight loss journey.
Brachioplasty: After the weight is lost, you might end up with what is commonly known as ‘bat wings’. During this procedure, the loose and sagging skin under your upper arms is pulled tight by the surgeon, and the extra skin is discarded.
Buttocks and thigh lift: When it comes to this area, the surgeon raises and tightens the skin over the buttocks and thighs to get rid of the excess tissues and skin. This leaves the areas with less visible dimples, sagginess and with more defined features.
It is quite essential to undergo body contouring treatments after losing weight because most of the times, the skin becomes loose and starts hanging. To cope up with this condition, skin tightening and re-positioning is required which is possible through body contouring procedures mentioned above.
