A common side effect of major weight loss, either naturally or via surgical treatment, is lingering excess skin and pockets of fat. Many people end up frustrated after achieving their weight loss goals when they find that their skin has lost its elasticity and no longer contours to their body size. Body contouring encompasses lifting procedures on all parts of the body, from the face and neck to the limbs and torso. If you have lost weight recently and experience sagging, excess skin, you may be a good candidate for this procedure.
Body lifting procedures involve surgical removal of excess skin under general anesthesia. Often patients will have several areas requiring surgical lifting and a staged approach with 2 to 3 surgeries will be necessary to ensure safety for the patient.
