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.

Preparing for body contouring surgery

In preparing for body contouring surgery, you may be asked to:

  • Get cleared for surgery by your bariatric surgeon and/or primary care doctor
  • Get a lab test
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Stop smoking well in advance of surgery
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements or other medications that may increase bleeding

Body contouring surgery should be performed in an accredited office-based surgical facility, a licensed ambulatory surgical center, or a hospital.If your body contouring is performed on an outpatient basis, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you to and from surgery and to stay with you for at least the first night following surgery.
