Losing a significant amount of weight is to be applauded. The process takes hard work whether achieved with diet and exercise alone or via bariatric surgery. The results of weight loss, however it is achieved, can be life-changing. Patients feel healthier, more energetic, and should feel more confident. The problem with weight loss, though, is that the skin doesn’t always respond the way we’d like. When tissue retraction is minimal, the body may lack the contours that one would like to embody. Excess skin and tissue often remain in areas like the arms, abdomen, thighs, hips, and breasts.
If you have reached your goal weight only to be left with excess, sagging tissue, you may benefit from the assistance of an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Raymond D. Jean approaches every treatment, surgical and non-surgical, with the uniqueness of each patient in mind. Utilizing appropriate techniques and extraordinary artistry, he can help restore the right accents in the right places of your body.
Body Contouring after Weight Loss
People who lose a great deal of weight don’t necessarily need a body lift to look and feel their best. Those who do receive a personalized treatment plan developed by Dr. Jean based on their needs and body composition. This is why it is beneficial to consult with an experienced plastic surgeon for body contouring. At Main Line Plastic Surgery, patients enjoy exploring their various options for better body contours after weight loss. Examples of body contouring procedures include:
- Breast Surgery
- Arm Lift
- Thigh Lift
