When you lose a significant amount of weight in a short amount of time, your skin will not have time to shrink to your body’s new proportions. For some people, loose and sagging skin following weight loss will never go away. Others may choose to work and wait, implementing increasingly progressive exercises to try and encourage skin shrinkage. Sometimes this method is effective. Often it is not. What choice, then, do people who have lost substantial weight have?
Post Weight Loss Body Contouring
Body contouring surgery is one of the most reliably effective ways to eliminate sagging skin and stubborn fat deposits following major weight loss. Often effective individually, body contouring procedures can easily be combined to highlight the results of your weight loss, improve contours, expand clothing options, and, in many cases, enhance range of motion and physical ability through the removal of bulky and unwanted fat and skin.
The best way to learn what post-weight loss body contouring may be able to do for you is through a one-on-one consultation at the Norman or Edmond office of Dr. Jayesh Panchal.
Depending on the ways your body has responded to weight loss, Dr. Panchal may recommend one or more body contouring treatment. Among the most popular are:
- Liposuction to eliminate stubborn fat deposits from every area of the body
- Abdominoplasty to reduce bulky skin, reattach separated abdominal muscles, and sculpt and tone the midsection. Tummy tuck surgery may also eliminate stretch marks in some cases
- Thigh Lift to remove excess skin and restore optimal contours to the thighs
- Arm Lift to create a firm, ideally shaped upper arm
Each procedure is customized to meet the specific needs of the individual. During your initial consultation, Dr. Panchal will evaluate your frame and provide information on the procedures he believes will produce the best results.
