While massive weight loss is an accomplishment worth celebrating, many people struggle with their new appearance. Losing a significant amount of weight either through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery can leave excess, loose skin that hangs off the body (and possibly residual fat deposits). This often creates an undesirable appearance and overshadows a person’s weight loss achievement.
Fortunately, body contouring procedures designed to remove excess, sagging skin and fat can help restore beauty and confidence following massive weight loss. In this blog post, Burt Plastic Surgery explains the benefits of body contouring.
Massive weight loss, especially in a short amount of time, can leave loose skin that no longer contracts over the body. The person may look smaller and thinner, but folds of hanging skin can hide their slimmer shape. Body contouring procedures such as tummy tuck and arm lift remove excess, drooping skin. The result is a more attractive figure.
Massive weight loss patients often experience physical discomfort following their surgery. Hanging skin can be heavy and difficult to move around, making daily activities like walking painful. Excess skin that rubs against other parts of the body can cause chafing or irritation. Body contouring procedures remove this skin and help relieve physical discomfort. Following body contouring, many of our patients say they are motivated to stay active and maintain their slimmer, more attractive physique.
Many massive weight loss patients feel self-conscious about their appearance. Folds of sagging skin can be embarrassing and enough of a reason for someone to avoid wearing bathing suits or form-fitting clothes. Many of our body contouring patients experience a boost in self-confidence and feel like they can proudly show off their post-weight loss bodies.
