After Weight Loss
After Weight Loss – Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery
Losing weight isn’t easy – and when you’ve accomplished losing a substantial amount of weight it’s a major accomplishment. Wearing new, smaller clothing sizes only adds to the excitement of stepping on a scale and seeing a lower number. You’re healthier, happier and likely more active too. But many women may feel uncomfortable if they have areas of excess skin following weight loss and seek our help at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery.
Excess skin can not only look unappealing, it can also prevent your ability to take part in some activities and to avoid wearing the clothes that you’d like to. After putting so much time and effort into dieting and fitness to lose weight, you should have the option to wear the outfits you want – which is why a procedure at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery can help you achieve that goal.
What Happens After Weight Loss
A key difference between cosmetic surgery following significant weight reduction and other cosmetic treatments is the need to consider the whole body rather than just one area. Excess skin can pucker and sag over sections of the body such as the hips, breasts, abdomen, thighs and arms. Body contouring of the chest area, for example, would typically require a different procedure than reshaping the thighs, buttocks or arms. The skin’s texture and degree of laxity will influence incision sites, amount of skin to be removed and to which degree resulting minor scars will be noticeable.
You deserve to look your very best after working so hard to shed all those unwanted pounds.
