Benefits of Body Contouring After Weight Loss

When people lose a large amount of weight, they are often left with sagging skin that hangs over their newly slimmed bodies. This excess skin hides the results and efforts of their weight loss journey and leaves many people continuing to search for self-confidence in their bodies. At K Plastic Surgery, patients use our body contouring procedures as the last step in improving their physique so that they can achieve their ideal bodies.

What is Body Contouring?

At K Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kayastha uses a variety of cosmetic procedures to customize each patient’s body contouring for their specific needs. Common procedures include a tummy tuck to tone and strengthen the abdomen or a lower body lift to target loose skin around the entire midsection (stomach, buttocks, and thighs). Women may also choose to have a breast lift to improve the appearance of sagging breasts. An arm lift, panniculectomy, and male breast reduction are other common procedures included in body contouring surgery.

Benefits of Body Contouring After Weight Loss

Improves Body Contour.

After significant weight loss, patients are left with loose skin folds around the abdomen, arms, thighs, breasts, face, neck, and buttocks. This is because the skin has been stretched for a long time, causing it to lose elasticity and sag. Through different body contouring procedures, excess skin is removed from all areas of the body for a better body contour.

Increases Satisfaction After Weight Loss.

Patients become more satisfied with the results of bariatric or gastric bypass surgery if they also undergo body contouring. They may be reminded of their weight loss struggle if they continue to see loose skin. Body contouring removes this excess skin to create a toned and slimmed physique that patients can feel confident about! This confidence will exude into their socialization, intimate settings, and career, bringing happiness to all aspects of their lives!

Helps Patients Maintain Weight Loss.

Body contouring removes hanging, excess skin that can decrease mobility for people after significant weight loss. The excess skin left after their weight loss can also be frustrating and embarrassing, leaving people unmotivated to move forward with their exercise routine. By removing the excess skin and slimming the body, weight loss patients’ confidence is restored and it is much easier to move around and work harder to maintain their lowered weight. With weight loss surgery, they can actually see the results of their work and will want to maintain that weight loss.
