Body Contouring after Weight Loss
Lower body, buttock, and thigh lifting procedures are used to excise redundant tissue and elevate the lower body. Excess skin and fat are removed and the remaining tissues are tightened to produce a slimmer, more attractive body contour. Weight loss and exercise can decrease the amount of fat, but the skin often remains loose and excessive. This skin laxity may be related to weight changes, genetics, gravity, or the normal again process. Patients who have excess skin as a result of pregnancy or significant weight loss may benefit greatly from these procedures.
