Considering body contouring after weight loss? Excess abdominal skin is very common after major weight loss or weight loss surgery. This loose, sagging skin does more than distort your newly slimmed body, but causes insecurity and frustration despite your recent weight loss achievement!
Read below to discover the 3 top plastic surgery procedures best for eliminating unsightly excess skin and achieve the body contouring after weight loss results you desire.
3 Plastic Surgery Options for Body Contouring After Weight Loss
To get your now slimmer midsection trim and contoured after your weight loss surgery, consider these three procedures recommended by Dr. Rotatori himself.
Also called a tummy tuck, this is a popular abdomen and body contouring procedure after weight loss. A tummy tuck removes excess skin, tightens weakened muscles in the lower abdomen and, in combination with liposuction, can help weight loss patients fully reveal their new, slim figure.
Similar to a tummy tuck, a panniculectomy removes your excess skin and fat, but it does not tighten the abdominal muscles or reshape the area around the navel. This is ideal for post weight loss surgery patients that are left with a “pannus,” or the extra skin and fat that hangs down on the lower abdomen that’s sometimes referred to look like an “apron.”
Lower Body Lift
Also called a belt lipectomy, this procedure addresses the front and back of your midsection and can have a lifting effect on your outer thighs and butt as well. During the procedure, a “belt” of skin around your abdomen is removed and the skin and muscles are tightened. This procedure is more extensive than an abdominoplasty or panniculectomy, but it is more effective for those who have moderate to severe excess skin on their back as well as on their front.
