Body Contouring After Weight Loss

Body Contouring Surgery Before and After PhotosMajor weight loss is a commendable feat and should make you feel proud of your accomplishments. However, the loose skin that remains after weight loss can put a damper on your achievements, causing you to continue to feel self-conscious about your appearance. Dr. Alex Mesbahi offers body contouring after weight loss to remove excess skin and tone your body so that you can embrace your newly improved body shape with confidence.

Who Can Benefit From Body Contouring After Weight Loss?

Undergoing major weight loss on your own or through surgery may leave you with stretched out skin. Your skin will lack elasticity and be unable to conform to your new body shape, and, consequently, it may appear to hang loosely from your body. The upper arms, breasts, buttocks, thighs, abdomen, and back are particularly likely to have skin that remains stretched after weight loss. If you have sagging, loose skin, you may be a good candidate for body contouring. To be a good candidate, you should also have stabilized your weight loss, have no significant health problems, and be a non-smoker. Above all, you should have realistic goals, a positive outlook, and be wholly committed to leading a healthy lifestyle with proper exercise and nutrition.

How Body Contouring Helps Transform Your Body After Weight Loss

Body contouring allows you to complete your body transformation after weight loss by removing excess skin and fat from trouble areas. This procedure can remove excess skin from the upper arms, breasts, buttocks, groin, thighs, back, and abdominal area. Along with removing sagging skin, body contouring can also remove fat from stubborn areas to improve body shape. By improving the shape and tone of your underlying tissues and tightening your skin, body contouring improves your overall appearance. All the hard work you’ve put in to lose weight and improve your body will be more noticeable and apparent. As you commit to living a healthy lifestyle and maintaining a stable body weight, your transformation can be long lasting and can improve your life for years to come.

If you’ve undergone major weight loss and are burdened by excess, loose skin, body contouring can transform your body. After body contouring, you can finally have the body you’ve been dreaming of and more fully appreciate your new figure.
