Need for body contouring surgery after the weight-loss is not pre-determined. It depends on your BMI before the surgery, your age, genes and skin type and muscle tone prior the surgery and your physical activity after the surgery.
However to lose the excess weight and still not be in comfort because of the excess skin is not the best solution. Body contouring surgeries can help you achieve the figure you have always desired and wear clothes that you have always dreamed about!
In order to assess, whether you need a cosmetic surgery after your weight loss surgery it is usually recommended to wait until you have reached your weight loss goal, and it is stable for 4-6 months already. It can take from 15 up to 24 months and definitely not earlier than a year after your weight loss surgery.
The most popular procedures after the excess weight loss are:
- Liposuction – the procedure is used to remove smaller amounts of fat from hips and thighs, flatten the abdomen, shape the calves and ankles or eliminate a double chin.
- Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty -a surgical procedure to remove excess skin, tighten abdominal muscles and to flatten the abdomen.
- Breast lift, augumentation, reduction – to achieve a desired look of your breasts.
- Buttock contouring/lift – lifting or reshaping the buttocks for smoother and tighter look.
