Goals of Body Contouring
Surgery after weight loss (body contouring) removes prominent skin folds and fat that cause people to feel uncomfortable participating in social activities or wearing swimsuits and sportswear.
People interested in this surgery have generally reached a stable weight while eating right and exercising more. But some areas, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, legs, arms, and head and neck region--especially after pregnancy – may have skin folds and excess fat. Body contouring may help people improve their appearance and quality of life while also improving their physical and emotional state.
Body contouring includes surgical procedures such as a tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, lower body lift, face lift, breast lift/augmentation, and liposuction. These can be done separately or in various combinations.
In all body contouring procedures, a detailed consultation and a thorough understanding of the procedure and its anticipated outcomes is the key to patient satisfaction.
