Cosmetic Surgery After Weight Loss
If you have recently lost a significant amount of weight, you are most likely experiencing many changes in your body. You probably feel better and can fit into smaller clothing, but may still be unsatisfied with your appearance. After all, weight fluctuation can cause irregular stretching in the skin or tissue that creates bulging and flab in certain areas of the body.
Men and women who experience a rapid deflation of their body due to fat loss typically have relatively poor skin quality. The skin has lost its elastic properties. This lack of elasticity is evident through stretch marks and cellulite (which are classic signs of permanent skin damage). These patients are NOT candidates for liposuction since removing more fat from already damaged and deflated skin makes the sagging skin appear even worse. For such cases, excisional cosmetic surgery techniques are ideal. The issue here is skin and muscular laxity as opposed to excess fat cells. Unfortunately, liposuction is only effective in eliminating excess fatty tissue. Luckily, we offer cosmetic surgery procedures that address saggy skin in our Chattanooga, Tennessee offices.
Cosmetic Surgery For the Upper Body:
An arm reduction, or arm lift, removes excess tissue, tightens sagging skin and reduces the arm size.
A breast lift repositions the breast and nipples to sit higher on the chest and is a great way to correct sagging.
If you are experiencing discomfort or embarrassment because of large breasts, you may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery.
Cosmetic Surgery For the Lower Body:
A tummy tuck removes excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles, giving the appearance of a slimmer midsection.
Can’t seem to lose that extra skin on your inner thighs no matter how hard you exercise? A thigh lift is an effective way to remove stubborn, sagging skin.
Re-contour your entire lower body with a body/butt lift.
Body contouring procedures are great for combating what dieting and exercising alone can’t. Fit better in your clothes and feel better about your body. Call or email us today!
