Post Weight Loss Journey|

A person’s weight-loss journey is a long process that doesn’t stop even after they actually lose those kilograms.

The common problem that many of our patients face after a major weight loss is that their skin is not elastic enough to conform to the new body dimensions. As a result, a lot of areas appear loose and saggy, such as the folds around the abdomen, or hanging “pockets” of skin around their arms, legs, groin, buttocks and thighs.

If you’re in the final stage of your weight loss journey, you can choose to have a body contouring surgery to improve the appearance of the problematic body areas and get rid of the excess skin. Body contouring procedure is not a substitution for any weight loss methods or fat reduction procedure. It is rather a final milestone of your post-weight loss journey experience. This type of surgery is carried out in several stages and that’s why you should consult your surgeon regarding your post-weight loss goals and your personal health circumstances prior to the procedure.

What Can Body Contouring Surgery Do For Your Post-weight Loss Journey Experience?

Having excess and heavy skin can not only have a detrimental effect on your mental health and self-confidence, but it can also cause physical health problems like hygiene issues, skin tearing, poor posture, infections, rashes and body aches. Body contouring procedure can help you remove the loose, hanging skin to achieve a well-built body and aesthetic proportions that you have always dreamed of. There are different surgical techniques that our surgeons use for body contouring, depending on the areas of the body that patients want to target:


Many people feel sensitive about the appearance of their lower body area, that’s why this technique is one of the most popular body contouring procedures. It can include the correction of many lower body areas, such as the lower abdomen, waist, hips, upper buttocks and outer upper thighs.

Risks Associated With Body Contouring Surgery

There are risks associated with the surgery because of the incisions required to eliminate excess skin and fat. Performing incisions on the body creates a risk of visible scars that will emerge after the surgery. It is important to consult with your surgeon regarding the possibility of scars as well as any concerns you may have about the procedure.
