Body contouring surgery is used to enhance the appearance of one’s body, especially after major weight loss when a lack of elasticity can result in saggy, heavy and loose skin.
After taking great strides to lose weight, either through dieting and exercise or bariatric surgery, it can be upsetting to then have upper arms that appear loose and saggy, or hanging pockets of skin around the abdomen, buttocks and thighs. This can affect your self-esteem and contribute to a range of health problems, including personal hygiene issues, skin thinning, skin tearing, back and shoulder pain, poor posture, infections and chronic rashes, as well as difficulty exercising and walking.
Body contouring surgery is aimed to improve various body areas, such as the upper torso and arms, the waist, abdomen, buttocks and thighs. These procedures are not a weight loss alternative nor a method of fat reduction, however, should be considered as the final phase of your weight loss experience.
There are several options and stages when it comes to body contouring after weight loss, all designed to remove excessive amounts of skin and correcting and reshaping the remaining skin. As everyone is different, Dr Lim will develop a personalised surgical plan that focuses on your current condition and desired goals.
For more information on these procedures, select from the treatments above or contact our office for a consultation.
