For individuals finding themselves unprepared for the dramatic effects of rapid weight loss surgery (as a result of stomach stapling or gastric bypass), body contouring provides a solution. Following major weight loss, the skin remains dramatically stretched, unable to return to its natural elasticity. Body contouring targets the shape of underlying tissue that supports fat and skin. Body contouring is the process in which excess sagging fat and skin is removed from the body.
During this process, areas such as the underarms, breasts, abdominal area, buttocks, and upper thighs undergo skin tightening. Incisions are made in unobtrusive areas to minimize scarring. Oftentimes, patients undergo what is called a belt lipectomy during which the skin around the entire torso is tightened in “one stage”. This procedure includes: a tummy tuck and a buttock lift with/or without buttock augmentation.
