After losing a significant amount of weight, you deserve to feel proud and confident in your own skin. Unfortunately, after major weight loss, many people are left with loose skin and/or small pockets of stubborn fat that don’t respond to dieting and exercise.
Luckily, there are several cosmetic procedures that can create the physique you’ve always wanted after major weight loss. Some of the most popular options include:
Loose, sagging skin in the midsection can be made tight and smooth with a tummy tuck. This surgical procedure involves tightening the muscle and skin in the midsection and trimming away any excess skin or fat tissue. This creates a toned, contoured abdominal area that you can proudly show off at the beach or pool.
Mini Tummy Tuck
Patients who only need to tighten and contour the lower portion of the abdomen can consider a mini tummy tuck. This procedure also involves removing excess skin or fat and tightening the abdominal tissue, but only in the area that extends from the navel to the pubic region.
Liposuction is an effective method of removing stubborn fat that won’t respond to weight loss efforts. It can be performed on various areas of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, love handles, upper arms, back, calves, and thighs, to create a slimmer, more contoured look.
The liposuction procedure involves several very small incisions on the targeted area of the body. Then, a small tube called a cannula is inserted to draw out excess fat using suction. Several different methods of liposuction are available, including tumescent liposuction and ultrasonic-assisted lipoplasty.
