Surgical Body Contouring After Dramatic Weight Loss

Surgical Body Contouring After Dramatic Weight Loss

Losing a significant amount of weight is an achievement that you should feel proud of. However, after a dramatic weight loss, excess skin may be clouding how you feel about this accomplishment. We understand how frustrating it can be when you feel like nothing you have tried—not exercising nor body creams—has alleviated this problem. Fortunately, with corrective surgeries, you won’t have to worry about excess skin.

Types of Body Contouring Procedures

If you have lost a large amount of weight in a relatively short period of time, your skin’s elasticity may not have been able to keep up, sometimes resulting in excess, hanging, or loose skin. Types of body contouring procedures to correct this include:

  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast lift
  • Face lift
  • Thigh lift
  • Brachioplasty

Different bodies hold weight in a large variety of ways. Depending on how your weight was distributed, you may only need a procedure in certain problem areas. A plastic surgeon in Des Moines can help assist you in determining the ideal path to achieving your new body.
