It takes a great deal of inner strength and discipline to transform your life and lose a massive amount of weight. Obesity is a widespread problem in America and takes a toll on nearly every aspect of your life, from declining health to plummeting self-confidence. Many men and women have been able to lose hundreds of pounds through exercise, diet and determination, but massive weight loss also comes with a large amount of excess, loose skin.
Body contouring can help you fully achieve your goals for your health and appearance by removing sagging skin and stubborn fat through one or more plastic surgery procedures including:
Surgery is the only way to get rid of excess skin after massive weight loss. Some companies advertise creams and lotions that help tighten lax skin, but these products won’t work for you. Exercise can ensure you keep your new figure, but won’t address sagging skin either. You’ve likely spent years trying to achieve your weight loss goal—now that you’ve reached your target weight, body contouring can complete your transformation.
In order to be a candidate for body contouring, you should be at or near your goal size and maintain a stable weight with only minor fluctuations. Additionally, you’ll need to have someone available to help you during your recovery and two to four weeks away from work to heal after your procedure(s), depending on the nature of your job.
