Options After Weight Loss
Weight loss in our society, and especially massive weight loss has been increasing due to increasing use of bariatric surgery. Oftentimes, the skin does not snap back to the original appearance and consistency because of the stretching that has occurred when overweight. In this circumstance, correction of skin excess and skin sagging is often necessary.
Common areas include the breasts, which may require breast implants and a breast lift, also the abdomen, which may require a tummy tuck. And for more severe weight loss, even operations such as body lifts and thigh lifts. Facial surgery may also be necessary, including facelifts, because weight loss can affect the facial appearance.
Although not all issues can be corrected, significant improvement can be achieved through the proper surgery with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
