Body Contouring After Weight Loss – You Deserve It!

After major weight loss, sometimes the skin loses its elasticity and is unable to conform to your new smaller body size. After all the hard work and commitment it took to lose the weight, you may still be unhappy with the way your body looks and feels. It can be hard to exercise with pounds of loose skin rubbing and getting in the way. No amount of additional weight loss can take care of this excess loose skin. This is the point when you should consider body contouring surgery.

Body contouring surgery removes the excess skin that your smaller body no longer needs.

This can include:
– face, jowls, and neck to remove excess hanging skin
breast surgery to fix sagging, flattened breasts
tummy tuck to remove the excess skin hanging over your abdomen
– arms to remove excess skin from the upper arms
– lower body such as buttock, and inner or outer thighs

The results of body contouring surgery can be seen almost immediately after surgery. However, there is a period of swelling and healing that must take place before the final results are evident. In addition, there will be scars from the procedure. Oftentimes it might take more than one procedure to remove all the excess skin if the weight loss was substantial. It’s important to have realistic goals and expectations from any plastic surgery, including body contouring.

Depending on the procedure you are having done, the recovery time can be minimal or it can be more substantial. This can be a fairly substantial surgery that will result in a huge change for your body. As a result, there will be some pain and soreness immediately afterward. You will need to avoid exercise for a period of time, including bending and/or lifting. If your body contouring procedures include the lower body areas such as abdomen or thighs, you might have to avoid standing fully upright until the internal stitches heal. As with most surgery, to avoid the risk of blood clots forming and moving to your heart, you will need to get up and moving as soon as possible after the procedure. As long as you keep your weight under control and lead a healthy lifestyle, the results of your body contouring surgery should last a lifetime.

Make sure you are open and honest with your cosmetic surgeon about your concerns and expectations when you go in for your first consultation. Your plastic surgeon wants the best possible outcome for you, and to achieve that they will need all the information you can give them.

Follow all your doctor’s instructions carefully for the best outcome and fastest possible recovery time. After all the hard work of losing weight and changing your lifestyle, you deserve the body you’ve always dreamed of.

I was so pleased with the honesty and concern for my best interest that not only did the Dr. provide but also Rosie. They want you to be completely happy with your results and offer an honest opinion of what procedures will help you obtain that result. The nurses are so friendly and helpful before and after the procedure. I would and will refer Dr. Zavala to my friends and family.

Doctor explaining what he was going to do before the procedure step by step and also how I was going to feel after the procedure overall was a good experience. I cant express enough how amazing my results look and how much confidence I have gained.

Every time I came to the office the whole staff was always very nice and welcoming. The day of my surgery the nurses took great care of me and made me feel comfortable. The doctor is very nice as well. Also my boy did not react well to one of the medications and Dr. Zavala kept me longer to make sure I was ok and the nurses kept a close eye on me. They were all so sweet. I am very thankful for that!
