Losing significant amounts of weight, whether through changes in diet and exercise or through bariatric surgery, can leave you with excess, sagging skin in more places than you’d probably like. Instead of settling with these less than pleasant results, there are steps you can take to achieve the look you desire and sculpt the body you’ve always wanted.
We’ve found that the best and most effective way to achieve these types of results is through plastic surgery or more specifically a body contouring procedure.
In this post, we’ll explore 3 Reasons Why Body Contouring Can Help After Extreme Weight Loss.
Unfortunately, when it comes to extreme weight loss, diet and exercise alone can only go so far. This same concept holds true post-bariatric surgery. You may have reached a point, or a plateau, where you’re unable to tone and tighten up certain areas any further. You may also be left with extra skin under your arms, on your tummy or even on your thighs. Since diet and exercise cannot combat these areas any more, plastic surgery can be a great option.
Another wonderful feature about undergoing a body contouring procedure is that you can be extremely selective. For example, if you know that you’re still losing weight in your arms and legs but have noticed that your stomach has not gone down in quite some time despite exercising and changes in diet, you can elect for a tummy tuck only. By being selective, you can avoid unnecessary surgeries and still achieve the look you want.
When it comes to losing weight and bariatric surgery, our guess is that you set out to lose a significant amount of weight to not only feel better but to also look better. Unfortunately, you may not have anticipated the excess skin and sagging that comes with losing so much weight. To achieve the results you want, you may have to take things one step further. Plastic surgery is the perfect solution to helping you finalize all of your hard work and achieve the look you truly wanted.
