Extreme weight loss comes with drastic lifestyle changes and a lot of work. While living healthier comes with a lot of benefits such as feeling better and being able to be more active, there are also some drawbacks in the form of excess skin. Not only is this loose skin not aesthetically pleasing to look at, it can be a constant disappointment for those that made so many changes to live healthier as it is a constant reminder of an unhealthy past. Thankfully, doctors and plastic surgeons are able to help you deal with this issue and help you become the best version of yourself.
There are plenty of weight loss programs that promise extreme weight loss, saying that people can lose dozens of pounds in a short time frame. These are often “starvation diets” that greatly limit how many calories are going in your body or intense exercise routines that burn fat. The most effective programs use a combination of both and are combined with supplements that lower the absorption of fats and increase how much fat the body naturally burns. Another option is undergoing surgery, such as a gastric bypass, to reduce the size of the stomach. These are all effective ways to lose weight quickly, but everyone should consult a doctor before going on a program.
One thing that isn’t talked about enough is the challenges that come with extreme weight loss. Not only can these impact your energy level and how your body deals with your daily routines, it can also leave excess skin. Unfortunately, this skin can cause health issues such as discomfort, rashes and infections on top of being uncomfortable for people that have worked hard to get into better shape. One way to combat this is body contouring surgery, which can remove the extra skin and help you feel more comfortable.
Body contouring surgery is a term that consists of several operations. These include lifts of the upper and lower body, breast augmentation, and lifts of arms and thighs. All of these remove excess skin and shapes it to be more aesthetically pleasing by being firmer. These types of procedures sometimes leave scars, although skilled plastic surgeons will make sure that the scar is minimized.
