Post Weight Loss Treatment
When you lose a significant amount of weight, it often happens that the fat from the body is not evenly shed off. Your belly may slim down perfectly, but your breasts or butts can remain as they were. Similarly, the breasts and the rest of the body may get slimmer after massive weight loss but the upper arms may remain unchanged. It can leave the body disproportionately shaped with some areas too thin while other areas being too broad. This is a fairly common condition where stubborn fats refuse to leave the body. Luckily, such a condition can now be cosmetically corrected with Post Weight loss treatment in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. Here’s all that you need to know about the procedure.

Weight loss Techniques
The technique of a Post Weight loss treatment is usually determined by the area which needs to be treated. Different procedures are carried out on different body parts…..
- Tummy Tuck – This technique is used to get rid of excess fat and skin from the abdominal region. It is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess fat from the belly using liposuction, tightening the abdominal muscles and then removing the extra lengths of skin. This causes the belly to get flatter and in proportion with rest of the body.
- Arm Lift – This surgical procedure is designed to make the arms tighter and thinner by removing all excess fat and hanging skin. The surgeon extracts the fat through liposuction, tightens the muscles and then cuts off all excess skin. Once stitched back together, the arms appear more firm and attractive.
- Breast Lift – Massive weight loss elsewhere in the body can leave the boobs saggy. A breast lift surgery gets rid of this sagginess and makes the breasts firmer, rounder and shapelier. The procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from the breasts and repositioning the underlying tissues. Sometimes the areola is also repositioned to a higher level to improve breast symmetry.
- Buttock Lift – Much like breast lift, a buttock lift is also designed to remove excess fat and skin from the buttocks to make them rounder, firmer and shapelier. A surgeon extracts all excess fat from the buttock region through liposuction and then repositions the underlying muscles to make the butts firm. Excess skin is then cut off and the incisions are stitched back together, leaving a nicely shaped pair of buttocks.
Post Weight loss treatments are usually extensive surgical procedures that require a significant amount of preparation. You will also need to set aside a budget to cover the entire cost of Post Weight loss treatment. Your surgeon will then advise you on all the important precautions and preparations that you need to make before going under the knife.
Your pre-op preparations will most likely involve some of the following.
- Getting some required lab tests done to ensure your suitability for the treatment
- Quitting cigarettes and alcohol for at least two weeks before and after the surgery. This is recommended to ensure quick healing.
- Adjusting your diet regimen to fit that recommended by your surgeon
- Taking prescribed medications regularly and discontinuing aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs.
Weight Loss Procedure
Post Weight loss treatments are surgical procedures that usually take between two to three hours to perform. All of these are carried out under local or general anesthesia so you don’t feel any pain during the procedure, however, there is usually some pain after the treatment which has to be dealt with medications.
Usually, a Post Weight loss treatment involves the following steps.
- Your surgeon will first administer local or general anesthesia to you to minimize any pain or discomfort.
- The surgeon will then make small incisions in the skin on the site that needs to be treated and insert cannulas through these incisions.
- Using liposuction or laser-lipo, fat is then removed from these locations.
- If need be, the surgeon will reposition the muscles to reduce sagginess
- If there’s excessive skin, the surgeon will cut it all off.
- In the end, the skin is stitched back together and the incisions are shut close. Medications and bandages are applied to the wounds to help the body heal quickly.
Post weight loss treatments can help you both, physically and emotionally by:
- Getting you rid of stubborn pockets of fat
- Making your skin smooth and taut
- Improving your contours and bringing your bodily features in harmony with each other
- Removing sagginess from different areas of your body
