It is a new year, which means it is time for a new you! After all the craziness of the holidays and not having time to go to the gym or eat healthy, you might have found yourself with excess weight or areas of your body that could use some extra attention. If your New Year’s resolution involves being healthier and losing weight, you may want to consider body contouring surgery. You could gain back that self-esteem and confidence you once had and become a new and improved you!
Patients who have experienced major weight loss and have excess skin may be ideal candidates for the following body contouring procedures.
Due to aging, the skin on the arms may begin to droop and sag, and there may be excess arm fat that just won’t go away even with regular diet and exercise. Arm lift surgery is performed by removing excess skin and fat from the arm between the underarm and elbow. This procedure reshapes your upper arm to result in smoother skin and contours, and it can provide a more toned, proportionate appearance to the arms.
Sun exposure and decreased skin elasticity can cause some women to have loose, saggy skin in the upper thigh area. With thigh lift surgery, this excess skin can be removed, resulting in firmer, more attractive thighs. For improvement of excess skin and fat on the outer thighs, a lateral thigh lift can be also be performed to get rid of the dreaded “saddle bags.”
Butt lift surgery is another option available. This procedure helps to lift the buttock and achieve a more youthful, round appearance. This can be performed using a variety of techniques, including the removal of the excess skin, fat injections, and butt implants to achieve the desired shape and lift.
For women who have had multiple pregnancies and for both men and women who have undergone major weight loss or experienced loss of skin elasticity due to aging, tummy tuck surgery can create a more attractive midsection. During this procedure, excess fatty tissue and stretched skin are removed, and stretched abdominal muscles can be sutured back together to create a more toned and slender abdomen.
To get rid of stubborn excess fat that is unresponsive to a healthy diet and exercise regimen, liposuction can be performed alone or along with tummy tuck surgery or other skin tightening procedures.
