Your Best Options to Remove Saggy Skin
Weight loss is one of the significant achievements you can make towards a more active and healthier life. However, weight loss may leave heavy and loose folds of skin, a stark reminder of how far you’ve come, thus presenting a new challenge. Sagging skin makes it difficult for you to enjoy the benefits of your weight loss. Therefore, you will need to contact a specialist who can help eliminate the sagging skin and restore some visually pleasing body contours. If you feel burdened by the extra skin after significant weight loss, several procedures can be used to eliminate it and enhance your self-confidence and comfort.
Options to Achieve a Trimmer and Firmer Body Shape
Plastic surgery removes the extra skin, thus improving the tone and shape of the tissues within your abdomen, face, breasts, thighs, arms, and buttocks. Different types of cosmetic surgery will help you gain a firmer body shape. They include.
Body Lift (Body Contouring)
Body contouring surgery is one of the standard procedures that can be used to improve your body’s appearance after weight loss. The results of the procedure are durable if your weight remains stable. One cut is made along your abdomen, and the surgeon removes the extra sagging skin. The same procedure is also used when lifting and tightening the waist, thighs, hips, arms, and buttocks.
After a body lift surgery, you may get a tummy tuck. The procedure is used to flatten the stomach when weight loss, diet, and exercise have not worked as expected. After making one large cut, the surgeon manipulates the skin, muscles, and tissues and restore the weakened abdominal muscles. The belly button is moved to suit your current shape. The procedure results in a flatter and firmer abdomen that matches your new trimmer shape. The scars left usually fade after some time.
If you have sagging breasts, going for a breast lift will help in lifting and reshaping them. During the process, the surgeon will remove the excess skin and tissues on the breast. The nipple is also re-positioned higher on the chest to suit the breast’s shape. Sagging breasts can also be eliminated, and a breast implant used to replace them.
