Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss FAQ
The final step in your weight loss journey
Body contouring after weight loss is often the final step in a long journey to better health, happiness, and self-confidence. Imagine the freedom you will feel when the excess skin and tissue left on your body is gone for good! It is a very rewarding procedure.
Will I be able to perform a greater range of exercises after body contouring?
Yes! Especially if you are suffering from excess skin that hinders motion when performing rigorous exercises and activities. Loose skin on the abdomen can create discomfort during many exercises, and excess hanging skin tissue on the inner thighs can lead to chafing or rashes.
Will I look good in tighter clothing?
If you want to be able to wear the clothes that you feel suit your style with confidence, then body contouring is the answer. You can wear tighter clothing, looking great – no more worries about hiding the excess skin that remained after your weight loss. Body contouring gives your figure a sleeker, trim figure that you will feel confident revealing in tighter, figure-hugging outfits.
What about my breasts?
While losing a great deal of weight is very rewarding, and healthy, your breasts can be left looking very saggy and deflated. They can be completely restored with a custom breast lift, so they are round, plump, and youthful in appearance. For custom body contouring in the Woodlands, meet with us in a private consultation at SGK.
Which areas can be addressed with body contouring?
Many areas can be addressed with the body contouring surgery at SGK. Some of these areas include:
- Breasts or chest area
- Tummy and waist
- Inner thighs
- Upper arms
These are typically the areas of the greatest concern – and they can be fully restored!
Will my skin naturally bounce back over time?
Once you have lost a massive amount of weight, the skin may be unable to “bounce back” due to loss of elasticity. Surgery is often the only solution to address excess hanging skin – and stretch marks.
What about correcting stretched muscles or hernias?
When people have gained an immense amount of weight, muscles can stretch beyond their capacity, creating a tear in the structure, and a hernia. If you have stretched, split looking abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) or have developed a hernia, these problems can be corrected in a custom body contouring procedure, which often involves tummy tuck. By correcting hernias and tightening the underlying muscle structure, your abdomen will appear tauter, firmer, and far more attractive and youthful.
Are the results long-lasting?
The results of body contouring are long lasting but must be maintained with a healthy diet and regular exercise. The results can be amazing, and if you had the ability and motivation to lose weight in the first place, then your enhanced contours can drive you to continue to stay fit and healthy!
I have excess skin on both the front and back of my body. What can you do?
A custom body contouring procedure will address every area with excess skin and tissue. A body lift procedure can be performed to remove excess skin around the entire waist and lower abdomen and remove excess skin and tissue on your lower back as well.
