If you have recently lost a significant amount of weight to achieve your ideal body weight, we congratulate you on your achievement! However, many men and women who lose a large amount of weight will often still feel self-conscious in their own skin. This is often due to the loose skin that remains after being stretched. Skin may not have the elasticity to spring back into place as it did once before, causing extra skin folds in the areas where weight loss are most noticeable. After losing weight, many men and women turn to a plastic surgeon for body contouring treatments.
What is body contouring surgery?
Once a significant amount of fat is lost on the body, it can leave behind stretched, sagging skin. This can become problematic for patients who are interested in showing off their weight loss results but can’t wear revealing clothing because of this sagging skin. With body contouring surgery, Dr. Jessica Belz will remove excess skin that remains after weight loss to tighten and firm specific areas of the body. Some patients may combine body contouring surgery with other body treatments such as a tummy tuck or a breast lift or augmentation. During the initial consultation appointment with our team, patients can speak candidly with our doctor to find out the best solutions for their unique needs.
Why might I require body contouring surgery?
- Discomfort of extra skin
- Poor self-esteem and self-confidence
- Difficulty urinating or participating in sexual activity
- Difficulty walking due to excess skin
- Swelling or ulcers that develop between skin folds
- Infections that develop between skin folds
- Problems with hygiene, specifically in the groin area
During a consultation visit with Dr. Jessica Belz, patients can ask about the various areas that may need attention and take the time to fully understand what to expect before, during, and after their body contouring surgery.
