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. For a consultation, contact Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery today!
