Do I Really Need Cosmetic Surgery After Massive Weight Loss?
Many patients who have lost a substantial amount of weight feel conflicted. They are elated at the changes they’ve made, but disappointed that their appearance wasn’t what they expected. Body contouring surgery can help you achieve the body you’ve dreamed of. By removing excess skin after losing a large amount of weight, you can feel more comfortable in your new body. You’ve worked hard to get where you are and we’ll help you finish that journey.
Body contouring after massive weight loss has many cosmetic and physical benefits including:
- A “Firmer” Appearance: Often, after losing a lot of weight, the body looks loose and droopy. Body contouring surgeries can “firm” up your appearance for a smoother, tighter look.
- Clothing Fits Better: Some styles of clothing can be difficult to wear when you have excess skin. Body contouring will open the door to clothing possibilities you’ve only dreamed of.
- Easier to Exercise: You’ve worked hard to lose that weight, make sure you keep it off. Exercise is a key to a healthier lifestyle. Body contouring can make it easier to get out and move, helping you achieve your long term weight goals.
- Drop Those Final Pounds: Stretched-out, excess skin can weigh more than you think. Body contouring can help you drop those final pounds.
- Feel More Comfortable: Excess skin is often uncomfortable or painful.
