Individuals who have lost a large amount of weight often suffer from an excess of loose and saggy skin, especially around their arms, abdomen, thighs, hips and buttock areas. Regardless if it was accomplished by traditional weight loss methods, gastric bypass, or weight reduction surgery, it is completely natural for your skin to lose elasticity.
Body contouring following major weight loss improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue, and removes excess sagging fat and skin. It may include a combination of body, breast, arm, and thigh lifts. A Belt Lipectomy, also known as the lower body lift, offers the most dramatic transformation of the mid and lower body. It re-sculpts the abdomen, hips, and buttocks. Body lift procedure is most commonly performed on post bariatric patients but not exclusively.
