Body Contouring for Weight Loss
Following weight reduction surgery, or just about any substantial volume of fat loss, your skin layer and flesh often lack elasticity and cannot conform to the reduced bodily proportions. As a result, skin that is severely stretched now could be unsupported.
Is Body Contouring For Me?
Prior to under taking the body contouring procedure following major weight loss, weight reduction needs to be stabilized.
- If you continue to lose weight dramatically after your surgery, drooping pockets of skin may redevelop.
- If you rapidly regain the weight after your surgery, you may stress your skin, causing strain on skin tissue which in turn may cause stretch marks and widen scars.
If you had weight loss surgery, our cosmetic surgeon can work closely with your medical professional to establish the appropriate time for surgery to gain optimum results.
