Plastic Surgery After Weight Loss
Losing weight is a major achievement! But once you’ve reached your goal, you might find that your new healthier, thinner body needs some additional fine-tuning. Although losing weight is often rewarding, it can unfortunately result in sagging skin. That’s because large amounts of excess skin that has been stretched around the abdomen, arms, legs, breasts and face may have lost its elasticity. After significant weight loss, the skin often fails to shrink back to its former size and shape. Plastic surgery after weight loss can remove the extra skin and improve the shape and tone of tissue in your arms, thighs, breasts, buttocks, face and abdomen.
There are several types of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures to help you gain a trimmer, firmer shape after weight loss. These include body contouring, also known as body lift surgery; tummy tuck, (abdominoplasty); butt augmentation; breast lifts; and arm lifts.
After weight loss in Denver, many people who want to remove the extra skin that hangs around the body choose to have one or more of the procedures mentioned above. Dr. Serota at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center offers excess skin removal (body contouring) surgeries designed specifically for patients who have achieved significant weight loss. Procedures that remove skin or fat, tighten and lift can help your clothes fit better and allow you to participate more comfortably in your favorite activities.
If you have achieved significant weight loss, congratulations on improving your health and quality of life! Now that you’ve lost the weight, you deserve to have a firm, toned body.
