Today, more men and women are turning to post-weight loss body contouring as a way of highlighting their slimmer figure and shedding unwanted reminders of their former weight. Here are six post-weight loss body contouring procedures that can help highlight the new, thinner you.
1. Arm Lift
An arm lift removes and reshapes sagging skin underneath the arms. Also known as brachioplasty, this procedure can give your upper arms a toned, youthful appearance.
2. Breast Lift
A breast lift raises and reshapes your breasts for a younger, firmer look and feel. Without affecting cup size, a breast lift can be optimized to reposition your nipples and improve sagging after weight loss.
3. Breast Lift with Implants
When paired with a lift, breast augmentation adds volume to deflated or drooping breasts while also improving breast position. Depending on your body type and desired outcome, the two procedures together may give you the best results.
4. Thigh Lift
The inner thigh area can be resistant to diet and exercise, often causing irritation during physical activity. A thigh lift gets rid of excess fat while lifting the skin for a fitter, slimmer result.
5. Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck can create a leaner, fitter looking abdominal area. By removing excess skin and fatty tissue, as well as tightening separated abdominal muscles, abdominoplasty can be an excellent way of achieving a more youthful midsection after weight loss.
6. Body Lift
A lower body lift is essentially a tummy tuck combined with a thigh and buttock lift. Different areas of your lower body can be targeted for tightening, toning and lifting to create the desired outcome.
