For many, surgery is the first, not last, stop on the weight loss journey. After dramatic weight loss, you may notice unwelcome loose or sagging skin.
Our plastic surgeons can reshape your body to better accommodate the new you. From tummy tucks to face lifts and breast contouring, you can get one step closer to the person you’ve always wanted to be.
First, talk with your surgeon and make sure you’ve maximized your weight loss. Then consult with a plastic and to learn how body contouring can improve your health and boost your appearance. A consultation is intended to educate you without requiring any commitment on your part. At a consultation, you can expect to discuss:
- Your goals and personal situation
- Surgical options for body contouring
- Likely outcomes of procedures plus any potential risks or complications
- Recommended course of treatment
- All your questions
The good news is the effects of body contouring are visible almost immediately. However, it may take one to two years for the final results to appear fully. Body contouring after major weight loss typically yields long-lasting results as long as you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As you age, the body naturally loses some firmness and scars may be visible. However, most of your initial improvement should persist.
