Weight loss is perhaps one of the most common personal goals not only in America but also worldwide. Year after year, men and women strive to shed the extra pounds mainly because they want to maintain optimum health and consequently look better.
Here at our Tarzana body contouring surgery practice, it’s not uncommon for us to receive visits from individuals who just lost a significant amount of body weight with the desire to further improve their body transformation. Every so often, these individuals will find themselves with excess sagging skin and localized fat deposits in the arms, breasts (in males), abdomen, and thighs after having bariatric surgery. In most cases, no amount of diet and exercise seem to work in reducing the appearance of the aforementioned.
Good Thing There’s Post Bariatric Body Contouring Surgery!
Body contouring surgery after dramatic weight loss is a collection of individual procedures that is aimed towards improving body aesthetics and achieving the most natural-looking results possible. Specifically, a typical body contouring surgery plan here at our practice may include (but are not limited to) a tummy tuck, arm lift, breast lift, and a thigh lift.
