What Is Body Contouring?
After a dramatic weight loss, the skin may have difficulty accommodating to this new drastic change. Oftentimes, the skin does not have the elasticity to conform to this sudden adjustment in size. Body Contouring is a surgical procedure that removes any excess sagging skin or fat to help augment the shape of the underlying support tissue. This procedure results in a better proportioned appearance, granting a smoother-looking figure.
What Are Some Types of Body Contouring?
- Arm lift to adjust sagging skin of the arms
- Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, to tone and tighten the abdominal area
- Liposuction to rid the body of excess fat
