Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss

Was 2014 the year of weight loss?

Massive weight loss has been on the rise for years, with analysts attributing this increase to everything from better diets to the popularity of shows like The Biggest Loser.

But as anyone who has experienced massive weight loss will tell you, losing that much weight in a relatively short time span comes with its fair share of problems.

While they might be overjoyed to have lost the weight, that doesn’t mean they’ve achieved the body that they wanted. Weight loss can leave excess skin behind that can not only detract from the excitement of dropping pounds but can also rub and chafe. And for many, no amount of diet and exercise can do much to eliminate this sagging skin.

Luckily, plastic surgeons have developed a variety of body contouring techniques specifically designed to serve those who have undergone massive weight loss. And as more people have lost more weight, it’s no surprise that these popular body contouring procedures, such as the lower body lift, have been on the rise as well.

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is an umbrella term that encompasses a wide variety of common plastic surgery procedures. Liposuction, breast lifts, & tummy tucks: these are all body contouring procedures.

Basically, Dr. Wooten will target specific areas of your body that contain stubborn pockets of unwanted sagging fat and skin. She’ll remove what’s not wanted and sculpt your body to produce an improved figure.

For those who have undergone massive weight loss, body contouring may be the only way they can eliminate the sagging, excess skin left behind. Our skin loses elasticity over time and your skin may not be able to adjust to the size of your new body. By removing this skin and contouring the body, Dr. Wooten can help you to double down on your weight loss and sculpt the figure you’ve been dreaming of.
