Plastic Surgery after Weight Loss to Contour the Body
Body contouring is a term that encompasses a number of plastic surgery procedures. These procedures are performed to improve the appearance of patients who have lost significant amounts of weight due to diet and exercise, childbearing or bariatric surgery. Most of the procedures aim to either tighten loose skin or remove excess skin and fat.
Body contouring is a process of plastic surgery done after weight loss often combined with other procedures like breast and face lifts to achieve a more proportioned look.
Liposuction, or the removal of fat, can play a major role in reshaping the body through plastic surgery after weight loss. Liposuction can be performed on almost any area of the body. Common areas include:
- Upper arms
There are some factors that can limit the amount of fat that can be removed from any one area. Liposuction is a delicate procedure and the doctor is careful to extract the right amount of fat, leave the patient’s fluids balanced, and not damage blood vessels or connective tissue. The expert physicians at Plastic Surgery Specialists of South Florida are what make us the first choice for liposuction and tummy tucks in Miami in body contouring.
Other Body Contouring Options
Body contouring is not restricted to liposuction. It can involve incisional procedures that cut away excess skin. Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, tightens the abdominal wall and can reduce sagging skin after weight loss. Thigh, arm and gluteal lifts can be performed with tissue from one’s own body. The newly popular Brazilian butt lift, for instance, uses your own fat to give the buttocks a fuller shape.
