After Significant Weight Loss, Body Contouring Can Improve Stubborn Areas

As you age, your metabolism slows and your body develops a propensity for storing fat. Even after putting in the hard work of making lifestyle improvements in diet and exercise, you might still have cosmetically unappealing areas on your body. This could come in the form of stubborn fat deposits or issues with excess or stretched out skin on the abdomen, upper arms, thighs, or other areas.

In a situation like this, your cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Mitchell Kaye, might recommend a body contouring procedure to address multiple problem areas.

During the body contouring, you might also be interested in having an arm or thigh lift to correct additional areas with sagging skin. This might also include some minor liposuction or liposculpture to adjust the underlying shape of the specific body part.

Your personal preferences and the amount of weight you lost will determine the degree of body contouring your surgeon recommends. This might also include having another procedure performed at the same time to address multiple problem spots in one single session.

In many cases, body contouring can also be performed in conjunction with another procedure such as a breast lift. This is a common option as breasts often experience significant changes along with any change in body composition.
