If you've lost an extensive amount of weight recently, congratulations! Exercising regularly and eating right is a great way to maintain the weight loss without feeling as though you are denying yourself the foods you love. However, many patients who have lost a lot of weight aren't ready to showcase their body at the beach quite yet--they may be self-conscious about sagging skin or volume loss in the breasts. This is when the team at Hillcrest Plastic Surgery can help with body contouring procedures.
How can I tone my body after weight loss?
There are several ways to tone your body after weight loss. One way is to use body contouring treatments available with a plastic surgeon. This may include any of the following treatments for patients to consider:
- Tummy tuck
- Arm lift
- Buttock lift
- Body lift
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
These treatments can help eliminate excess, stubborn fat that remains after weight loss while contouring the body for a more streamlined appearance. In addition, they can help improve the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite that might also impact the skin's appearance. Patients can focus on just one part of the body, or have an entire body lift done at once, allowing our doctors to work on the most problematic areas at the same time to reduce downtime and recovery.
Which one is right for me?
During a consultation appointment with one of our plastic surgeons, patients can ask questions about the various lift procedures and how they can improve the body's appearance and contours. Each treatment plan is customized based on each patient’s unique needs. Our team will evaluate the body, talk to patients about their goals, and make educated recommendations regarding the best way to achieve their desired changes with plastic surgery. Patients should also have realistic expectations as to what can be achieved, and can review before and after photos to see patients who have previously had the same procedures done.
