Body Contouring

After Major Weight Loss

Body contouring following major weight loss improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin and removes excess sagging fat and skin.

Body contouring results

The results of body contouring following significant weight loss are visible almost immediately; however, it can take two years or more to see the final results.

Body Contouring Before & After Photos

Visible scars are something you must accept to achieve a body contour that matches your new weight and proportion.

The results of body contouring are generally long-lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness. However, most of your initial improvement should remain.

Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.

Following your physician's instructions is critical to the success of your surgery.

It is important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, motion, swelling or abrasion during the time of healing. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.
