Loose skin can be a source of embarrassment and discomfort. If you’re struggling with loose skin, we’ve got the solution.
Loose Skin After Weight Loss
After losing a significant amount of weight, you can be left with loose, hanging skin. That can be very frustrating because you’ve put so much hard work and commitment into losing weight, only to be left with an imperfect body. And regardless of your most valiant attempts at diet and exercise, it will have no effect on loose hanging skin. That skin must be surgically removed.
Body Sculpting Techniques
A variety of body sculpting techniques can be used to sculpt and reshape the body, removing loose sagging skin. You can focus on one single procedure or combine a variety of procedures to reach your ultimate body goals.
The most common surgical procedure after weight loss is a tummy tuck. Many women also undergo a tummy tuck after pregnancy, and some find that their abdomens have loose skin from aging. Loose skin in the abdominal area can cause health problems like rashes, infections, and back pain. A tummy tuck can thin and firm the abdominal area by removing excess skin and fat. A tummy tuck is also beneficial for men looking for a more youthful, muscular silhouette. The procedure can help get rid of that unwanted gut or loose skin around the abdomen, revealing a toned, sculpted shape underneath. If you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly, the results of a tummy tuck are usually long-lasting.
After significant weight loss, you may want to consider a full body lift. Body lift surgery can be performed on various parts of your body including your abdomen, thighs, buttocks, breasts and arms. This procedure will address a variety of problem areas to give you the body of your dreams.
The upper arms can be a stubborn area for toning, and sometimes it seems impossible to sculpt them no matter how much strength training we do. A brachioplasty or arm lift can remove “bat wings” by tightening and reshaping the tissue under the arms. Fat and excess skin are removed giving the arms a smoother, more toned appearance. You’ll finally feel comfortable wearing a sleeveless shirt!
If your breasts have lost their shape due to weight loss, aging or pregnancy you might want to consider a breast lift or mastopexy. This surgical procedure raises and reshapes your breasts.
Loose skin on the thighs makes it difficult to wear shorts and short skirts without embarrassment. A thigh lift will remove the excess skin, giving you shapely, more attractive legs. Liposuction may also be included in the procedure to remove stubborn fat deposits and cellulite.
Loose skin on the face and neck can be addressed with a facelift or a neck lift. These procedures can reshape your facial lines and help you look years younger. This can be a real boost to your self-esteem.
