Losing a massive amount of weight is an achievement to be proud of whether you accomplished it through diet and exercise, surgery or a combination of both. But many people find that after they drop 70+ pounds, there are still two issues standing between them and the body they’ve dreamed of: excess skin and stubborn fat. Body contouring after massive weight loss can be the ideal next step in your journey, but what are the biggest benefits of these procedures?
Your weight loss is a major accomplishment. Don’t let excess skin or stubborn fat prevent you from loving your body.
#1: Boosted Confidence
No doubt you are feeling better about yourself just from losing weight. Still, if loose skin has you feeling unhappy when you look in the mirror, you have room for a confidence boost. With post-bariatric weight loss plastic surgery, you can remove skin, tighten muscles, eliminate stubborn fat, lift your breasts and more — getting you close to the body you pictured before your transformation.
#2: Greater Comfort
Loose skin isn’t just an aesthetic concern; it is a sensory and health one as well. When your skin is sagging, it can pull on the rest of your body, causing pain and annoyance. Skin folds also get infected easily and can compromise your general health. Together, this can limit your mobility and result in recurring medical bills.
#3: Easier Shopping
Shopping after weight loss is one of the most enjoyable parts of getting slim. However, if you have significant excess skin, you might need to limit your outfit choices to those that can either pull in your skin or hide the shapewear underneath. With post weight loss body contouring, you can enjoy a wide variety of outfits.
