Have you recently lost a large amount of weight either through diet and exercise or as a result of weight loss surgery? If so, you should be incredibly proud of your breakthrough and are probably excited to show off your body. However, as you look into your mirror, you may see some lingering fat in troublesome areas. You may also notice a great deal of sagging skin where you once had fatty deposits. This is because your skin stretches out to fit over your fatty layers. Once you lose weight, your skin may not be able to bounce back to the correct shape and size. Instead of living with this excess skin, you can choose body contouring to help you feel completely wonderful about your body again. With body contouring, you can get the right tone and tightness in your skin throughout your most troublesome areas and can feel confident to show off your new shape wherever you go.
If you need body contouring, you have several options available. If you have stubborn pockets of fat over some of your most troublesome areas, you may best benefit from liposuction. Liposuction uses invasive techniques to remove fat cells from your body permanently. It can be used in many of the most common problem areas, including the abdomen, the buttocks, the inner and outer thighs, the love handles and even the dreaded bra bulge area. Non-invasive options, such as CoolSculpting and SculpSure, can also help to contour these areas to reveal toned muscles beneath your skin.
On the other hand, if drooping, sagging skin is the bigger problem for you, you may benefit from a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and other underlying tissues. One of the most popular options is the abdominoplasty, commonly called the tummy tuck. This procedure removes excessive belly skin and tissues and may even allow us to tighten your abdominal muscles.
Of course, you may need to receive more than one of these treatments to look your best. Many times, we can combine treatments and do two surgical procedures at the same time. This can lessen your recovery time altogether and may minimize surgical and anesthesia costs. For example, many of our patients opt for simultaneous tummy tucks and liposuctions for the best results. You may also want to opt for one surgical procedure and follow it up with an aesthetic service for the skin.
We know that you want to feel good about yourself again. Once you have gone through all of the work to rid your body of excess weight, be sure that you follow up with body contouring to reshape your body. With our individualized services, you can reveal the real you and renew your confidence in your shape and size. Contact us today at the office of Dr. Joseph A. Russo to schedule your consultation.
