Losing a substantial amount of weight is a major achievement that you should be proud of. However, while the weight may have gone, reduced elasticity in your skin makes it unable to bounce back to a tighter, firmer appearance, leaving you with excess or sagging skin that affects your overall new look. The good news is that many different cosmetic procedures can address excess skin removal and give you the toned and tight appearance you are looking for.
Facial Signs of Aging
Whether you have lost a substantial amount of weight due to weight loss or are losing facial volume due to aging, this loss of fat and facial volume can lead to sagging facial skin and wrinkles that can affect your facial appearance. While you may not be ready for a facelift, dermal fillers can help to reduce wrinkles and add volume to your face, helping to restore a more youthful appearance.
Excess Tummy Skin
When your tummy carries excess weight, the skin stretches to accommodate the increased fat. When you lose the weight, your skin may not have the elasticity it needs to conform to your smaller shape, resulting in sagging skin around your middle. A tummy tuck is designed to remove this excess skin and tissue, as well as tighten abdominal muscles, giving you a toned and firm appearance.
If you have pockets of stubborn fat, adding liposuction to your tummy tuck may further enhance your results.
Significant weight loss can also reduce the volume of your breasts, leaving excess skin that sags, similar to a deflated balloon. A breast lift procedure can help remove the excess skin and tighten the remaining breast tissue, restoring a perky breast appearance.
Lost Breast Volume
While a breast lift is an option to reduce the excess skin, many women are looking to restore the volume lost in the breasts. A breast augmentation procedure with implants allows you to restore your breast volume, giving you the body contours you desire. In some cases, you may benefit from both a breast augmentation, as well as a breast lift, in order to achieve optimal results.
If you have reached your weight loss goal but excess skin is keeping you from the body contours you have worked hard to achieve, the team at Kobienia Plastic Surgery is ready to help you find the right procedures to give you the body contouring results you have worked hard to achieve.
