Even after dramatic weight loss, many are still unable to find satisfaction and confidence in their new body. A body that has undergone such a drastic change will likely have excess skin and tissue that has lost elasticity and does not conform to the new weight. Or a person may find that they reach their goal weight and still struggle with stubborn pockets of fat that prevent them from achieving the body contours they desire.
In cases such as these, plastic surgery has the ability to provide effective solutions for bodies struggling with excess sagging skin or stubborn fat. Plastic surgery after weight loss has helped many achieve the body they desire after diet and exercise have stopped producing results. Dr. Michael Whetstone at Las Colinas Centre for Plastic Surgery has over 20 years of experience performing plastic surgery procedures that have helped countless people get the body they have not only envisioned but also worked hard for.
Plastic surgery after weight loss provides a safe and effective means to improve body shape and contours as well removing and tightening excess skin and tissue. Among the plastic surgery procedures to undergo after weight loss are:
Tummy tucks, or abdominoplasty, removes loose, hanging skin and excess fat while tightening and restoring weakened muscle in the abdominal area creating a flatter, smoother stomach. Tummy tucks deliver great results for men or women who have skin or muscle that has stretched beyond its ability to return to normal. A tummy tuck can help you achieve the firmer waistline you desire after diet and exercise are no longer able to help.
Breast Lift (With or Without Augmentation)
A breast lift is an ideal procedure to renew breasts that have lost shape due to weight loss or weight fluctuations. A breast lift removes stretched excess skin, raises the breasts as well as the position of the nipple in order to reduce overhang and sagginess. Breast lifts can be performed without augmentation or in conjunction with breast augmentation. A breast lift can create breasts with improved contour, profile, fullness and shape in women who have lost large amounts of weight and desire breasts that are aesthetically appealing.
Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)
At the same token, men who have undergone a dramatic weight loss may find themselves with loose overhanging skin on their chest. Gynecomastia surgery eliminates excess fat, tissue and skin in order to produce a firmer, flatter chest with enhanced natural contours.
Face and neck lift procedures repair, tighten and lift loose sagging skin that result after weight loss. Skin that has been stretched often looses elasticity making it difficult to regain shape and at the same time creating sagging skin and lost definition. Face and neck lifts will improve and restore facial contours that will help reaffirm confidence after the great accomplishment resulting from a healthy lifestyle.
Liposuction removes pockets of excess fat throughout the body that are resistant to a healthy diet and exercise. Even after you’ve reached your goal weight, you may find that the shape of your body is not what you would hope. Liposuction is an effective means for reducing volume and enhancing natural contours. It has the ability to remove stubborn fat in isolated or problem areas.
