Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss
Individuals who undergo massive weight loss, either through weight loss surgery or diet and exercise, often face the problem of excess skin and lingering fatty tissue. After losing a large amount of weight, skin often can’t shrink enough to keep up with the body’s new contours. For some, the excess skin is strictly an aesthetic concern, but for others it can cause physical discomfort, chronic health issues and even restricted mobility. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sugene Kim performs post-weight loss body contouring surgery to help people from Houston, Conroe, and Spring, TX, and beyond reduce much of the excess skin and fat to improve their appearance and overall quality of life.

Who Should Consider Post-Weight Loss Body Contouring?

- Hanging skin around and under the abdomen
- Breast sagging
- Diminished breast volume

Post-Weight Loss Body Contouring Techniques
Because every individual’s concerns are different, there is no one-size-fits-all approach for body contouring after weight loss. Some of the most common procedures Dr. Kim uses to help men and women achieve a more streamlined figure after losing weight include:
- A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, to create a fitter, more toned midsection
- A breast lift, or mastopexy, to reposition and reshape sagging breasts
- Breast reduction to create lighter breasts and increase physical and emotional comfort
- Breast augmentation with implants to restore lost breast volume
- Liposuction to reduce fat deposits in problem spots
- An arm lift to reduce sagging arm skin and create a more toned upper body
- A thigh lift to resolve chafing in the inner thighs and create a slimmer, more streamlined lower body
- A facelift to tighten sagging jowls and create a more youthful lower face and neck
- Male breast reduction to treat gynecomastia and sculpt the male chest into a more masculine shape
During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Kim can assess your needs and make recommendations for the most suitable procedures for you. She will also explain the kinds of results you can expect and how best to care for your surgical scars.
While some people may benefit from multiple procedures combined into a single surgery, others may prefer a staged approach to their post-weight loss needs. Dr. Kim and her staff will work with you to determine the best schedule for your surgeries and how you can maintain your results with a healthy lifestyle.
