Why You Should Consider Body Contouring After Major Weight Loss


Why You Should Consider Body Contouring After Major Weight Loss

Achieving a major weight loss goal should be a cause for celebration! Reaching your ideal weight will improve your overall wellness and can make you feel more confident in your appearance. That said, the body doesn’t always adapt quickly after major weight loss, often leading to excess skin and stubborn fat in certain areas of the body. 

Body contouring can eliminate excess skin and stubborn fat after weight loss to help you achieve your ideal figure. This type of cosmetic procedure will help your body adapt to your new, lower weight so that you’re more comfortable and confident. 

What is Body Contouring? 

Body contouring can refer to multiple procedures. Dr. Mosiello will create a unique body contouring treatment plan based on your needs, which may include liposuction, a tummy tuck, and/or a breast lift. These procedures may be performed in one or multiple surgical sessions. 

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure in which stubborn fat deposits are suctioned away through a long, thin tube. Only a small incision is needed to insert the tube into the treatment area, which minimizes scarring. Liposuction can eliminate small deposits of excess fat that are resistant to exercise and weight loss. 

The tummy tuck procedure is used to help patients achieve a flat, toned belly. In this procedure, loose skin and fat are removed from the abdomen and the muscles in the abdomen are tightened. This helps the body adjust after major weight loss and gives the midsection a flatter, more contoured look. 

After losing weight, many women find that their breasts have a sagging, drooping, or deflated appearance. The breast lift procedure can resolve this concern by tightening and reshaping the breast tissue, which gives the breasts a perkier, more lifted appearance. 

The most successful outcomes from body contouring surgery are achieved when 

weight has been stable weight for at least a year. Ideal candidates are those who have overall good health and nutrition, who are non-smokers, and who understand no matter how tight the skin may be pulled, over time there will be a degree of relaxation. Surgery may improve body contours but it will not result in a “perfect” body shape.  Body contouring will address your cosmetic concerns so that you can fully enjoy your hard work after major weight loss.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
