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.
