Many people who opt for body contouring do so after significant weight loss. The procedures, of which there are a few, all remove excess sagging skin or fat while improving the overall shape of underlying tissue. In layman’s terms, contouring provides a toner, leaner appearance. The result is better proportions and smoother frame. Weight loss has countless benefits. At the same time, it does have some unpleasant side effects. The skin and tissue, for example, often lack any elasticity and cannot conform to your new size. Surgery is often the only option.
Body Contouring Procedures
There is a multitude of body contouring procedures designed to make your life better. For instance:
- Facelift – A facelift helps improve sagging around the mid-face, jowls, and neckline
- Breast lift – After weight loss, sagging or flattened breasts are common
- Tummy ruck – Excess skin hanging around the abdomen is tightened and reduced
- Arm lift – Sagging skin along the upper arms is tucked and tightened
- Thigh lift – Along the inner thigh, skin often sags after weight loss
Does Contouring Work?
If you’re looking to slim down, diet and exercise are typically the only reasonable answer. Even after losing the weight, you may have unsightly skin that sags and folds. This skin often makes us feel uncomfortable or at a loss of confidence.
There is no magic, automatic way to remove sagging skin. It’s a process. However, contouring has worked well to give many people the body they’ve worked so hard to achieve. It’s a proven way to tone and tighten the body after weight loss.
