Common Cosmetic Procedures After Extreme Weight Loss

If you have lost 100 pounds or more, you have accomplished something wonderful for your health. You should be very proud of yourself, but you may still be lacking self-confidence. Often when people lose a significant amount of weight it results in flaps of skin, stubborn fat that will not go away with diet and exercise, or loose skin. Sometimes that is more devastating to self-esteem than the weight itself.

Thankfully, there are many cosmetic procedures that you can get to eliminate that extra skin and fat and improve your self-confidence. Here are a few of those procedures.

Arm Lift

One of the most common problem areas are the arms. While other parts of your body may tone up with diet and exercise, the arms often don’t snap back. When you had arms that easily flapped before you lost weight, chances are that they will not tone up. The excess skin after losing weight simply can’t be combatted without an arm lift.

Tummy Tuck

For some people, losing weight in the abdomen leads to a flap of skin and fat that can be uncomfortable and make clothes fit poorly. Again, the body can only tone and tighten so much with exercise. A tummy tuck removes this excess skin and fat so that you can be comfortable in your own body. In some cases, if the flap hangs low enough, you may be able to get this procedure covered by health insurance.

Butt Lift

The buttocks and upper thighs are another common problem area. When you lose weight, your butt will likely lose a lot of volume. Depending on how quickly you lost the weight, the skin and muscle may not be able to tone up easily. If you lost weight really fast, you’ll probably need a butt lift to get back to your original figure.
