For those that have lost a tremendous
amount of weight, either naturally, or through gastric
bypass surgery, these individuals can still possess
loose hanging skin on their bodies. Unfortunately,
no amount of dieting and exercise will remove this
excess skin. So even after the fat is gone, pounds
of excess skin can still hang from the bodies, making
various areas appear baggy. Body contouring, also
called a body lift, offers a surgical solution. This
is a procedure where excess skin is removed throughout
Various procedure such as tummy
tuck (abdominoplasty), breast lift, and other procedures
can be combined with other body contouring procedures
in order to achieve a total body lift. This is a very
extensive procedure, where excess skin is removed
and the remaining skin is pulled, tightening it up.
The entire body lift is completed in two or three
sessions. The result is a smoother, less baggy appearance
throughout the body.
For a major procedure such as body
contouring, it is important to have a thorough understanding
of the procedure before making a decision. This procedure
offers many benefits, but it is an extensive procedure
and there are many possible risks involved.
