AFTER MASSIVE WEIGHT LOSS
Body contouring after major weight loss is often required after bariatric surgery. The body contouring involves surgery that will remove excess skin and fat in certain areas that you are concerned about.
The most common procedures that are done after major weight loss include:
- Lower body lift
- Arm lift (Brachioplasty)
- Breast lift (Mastopexy)
- Thigh lift (Thighplasty)
- Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty)
The choice of procedures is dependant on what bothers you the most. It is common that a combination of the above procedures is done. It is however important to realize that there is a limit to what can be done in one operation and these procedures are often staged (not all done at once). This will be discussed with you.
Further information on each of the above procedures can be found in the relevant sections on this website.
