Whether achieved by diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, dramatic weight loss can have a positive effect on a person’s self-confidence. However, in achieving your weight-loss goal, your body may have been left with excess fat deposits and sagging skin on various regions. These issues not only continue to worsen, but they also become nearly impossible to improve over time. To correct the negative side effects that result from losing a considerable amount of weight, many men and women turn to body contouring with Dr. Alex Mesbahi for an effective solution.
Benefits of Body Contouring Surgery
Through body contouring surgery, Dr. Mesbahi can help patients improve the following conditions:
- Sagging in the upper arms
- Breasts that appear flat
- Downward pointing nipples
- Apron-like overhang in the abdominal area
- Folds and pockets in the thighs
- Sagging skin in the buttocks region
Candidates for Body Contouring Surgery
Although a consultation at our Virginia practice is the most accurate way to determine if body contouring is suitable for you, there are some general characteristics that most patients have in common. You may be a candidate for body contouring if you:
- Are in good overall health
- Have no health conditions that can impair healing
- Are at a stable weight
- Have realistic expectations about surgery
- Do not smoke
Body Contouring Procedures
Since body contouring is designed to treat multiple areas of the body, several cosmetic treatments are performed concurrently with one another during the same procedure. The areas of your body that need correction will ultimately determine which of the following body contouring procedures are performed:
Removes excess skin and glandular tissue from the breasts while elevating the breasts and nipples to a higher, more attractive position.
Removes excess skin from the arms and tightens the remaining skin to reveal a slimmer, more toned appearance.
Removes hanging skin from the stomach area and restores a defined appearance to the abdominal muscles.
Reshapes the thighs to a more attractive contour by eliminating sagging and stretched skin.
Restores fullness and roundness to the buttocks by removing sagging skin and lifting the butt to a higher position.
Results of Body Contouring Surgery
The results of body contouring typically last many years, as long as you maintain a healthy weight and properly take care of your skin.
