Manhattan, New York (PressExposure) September 11, 2009 -- When people lose a great deal of weight, they generally seem to be healthier, fitter, slimmer and more confident. But often there are chances of having loose or hanging skin following a weight loss surgery or pregnancy, or after weight loss achieved primarily through dieting and exercise programs. In such cases, body contouring surgery can be the ideal solution to your problems.
Achieve a New Positive Body Image through Body Contouring after Weight Loss
Body contouring procedures can tighten and lift loose skin from weight loss, and help you achieve the proportioned and pleasing figure you desire. To remove the excess skin and fat and restore a shapelier contour, multiple body contouring procedures are performed at once. Here are some of the commonly performed procedures that fall under the definition of body contouring:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Breast reduction
- Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty
- Arm lift
- Thigh lift
- Upper body lift
- Butt lift
General anesthesia is normally used and the procedure takes two to six hours to perform, but varies depending upon the degree of contouring required, extent of fat deposit, and or combination of procedures performed. The hospital stay and recovery time also varies, depending on the extent of the procedure and other risk factors. Like all other surgical procedures, body contouring surgery has risks, including bruising, swelling, infection, and burning.
Regain a Firmer, More Youthful Appearance
It is always preferable to seek out the help from a plastic surgeon who has a great deal of successful experience - who can provide you with the best contouring results. Also, be sure to review the pros and cons of each procedure, recovery course, the possible risks and complications, and all about the aesthetic outcomes you can expect.
