Body Contouring After Weight Loss

Losing a significant amount of weight is sure to improve your lifestyle and confidence! However, it can also leave you with stretched skin and loose tissue in several areas of the body. This can prevent you from achieving a toned contour and even discourage further weight loss efforts. With body contouring after weight loss, you can have your excess skin and tissue removed to complete your transformation. Here’s what can be included:

Tummy Tuck

The abdominal area can be highly affected by weight loss. With a tummy tuck, excess skin is removed from the abdomen and the underlying tissue is tightened. The belly button can also be repositioned during the process. A tummy tuck can also be extended to the sides and lower back if excess skin is present here. If stubborn fat is present in the area, liposuction techniques can be used at the same time for precise contouring.

Arm/Thigh Lift

Excess skin and tissue can be present on the upper arms and thighs as well. No amount of exercise can tighten the skin once it has stretched, but with an arm or thigh lift, the skin can be removed to improve your contour.

Breast Lift

When you lose a large amount of weight, the breasts can also lose their volume, resulting in sagging. With a breast lift, the breasts are lifted to a perkier position and volume is restored to the top of the breast. For significant volume loss, you may even consider a breast augmentation with implants to achieve a fuller, more proportionate look.


Even your face can be affected by weight loss, causing sagging in the lower face and neck area. With a facelift or neck lift, excess skin can be removed, and the tissue is tightened to restore your youthful looking facial features.
