You Go Girl!

If you just lost a large amount of weight, give yourself a big hug! You accomplished something that everyone wishes they could, and most struggle to achieve. The only downside that you’ve probably noticed is all that extra skin! The pounds are gone, but the sexy, svelte body you’ve been fighting for still seems a little out of reach. You’ve done the hard part, now let plastic surgeons do the rest. With body contouring surgery you can achieve the look you desire… and we promise, it will be the easiest part of your journey so far.

What to Expect

The board certified plastic surgeons at East Coast Advanced Plastic Surgery are experts in the area of body contouring after a massive weight loss. They outline this procedure on their website, explaining that body contouring surgery removes excess, and often sagging, fat and skin to improve the overall shape and tone of your body. This is how you get those curves you really want! Sounds kind of intense, but surgeons claim that you should be able to walk immediately following surgery, and will be up doing mild-impact activities within a day or two!

Curve Appeal

There are many areas of your appearance that can benefit from body contouring procedures.  Below is just a brief list of the areas surgeons typically remove sagging skin or fat from. Remember that every patient has a different story, and no two surgeries are ever the same. Your body contouring procedure may correct the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Upper Arms
  • Breasts
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Neck
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Knees

and Many Others!

Is This for Me?

That’s what you’re probably thinking, and the answer isn’t a simple yes or no. Your plastic surgeon will discuss all of your options during your confidential one-on-one consultation. It is then they will go over the following points:

  • This body contouring procedure is intended for patients with a history of obesity who have lost at least 80 pounds with diet and exercise or a gastric bypass procedure.
  • It is important that you complete your weight loss journey prior to surgery, otherwise your original problems may reappear.
  • Body contouring surgery can be performed at any age, but you must be able to withstand the stress of surgery.

Any questions or concerns you still may have can be addressed during your consultation. Don’t be afraid to put time into your research… the best surgical patients are those who know what they’re getting themselves into! Do something great for yourself, and look into body contouring surgery today!
