Creating a weight loss goal then achieving it is a great accomplishment. However, some people find that their body is still not at their ideal image and goal. One solution to this issue is to invest in surgery after losing weight in order to create a body image for yourself that makes you feel confident. The following are the most beneficial types of plastic surgery after weight loss.
Have you ever wished about having your dream stomach? Everyone desires a flat, tight abdomen with great muscle tone and no excess skin or stretch marks. Working out and getting in shape helps your muscle tone but it cannot restore your abdomen to a youthful contour. Therefore, plastic surgery of the abdomen (tummy tuck) can be used to remove excess skin, stretch marks, and fat. Additionally, the surgery aims to tighten the abdominal wall.
One beneficial type of plastic surgery to invest in after weight loss is the body lift because it is one of the largest and most rewarding procedures in body contouring. The procedure generally consists of a thigh lift, a buttock lift, and possibly a tummy tuck. Weight gain acts as a common cause of needing a body lift because of the overstretching of the skin. To assess whether you would benefit from a body lift, stand in front of a mirror and pull your lateral thigh and buttock up with both hands. If you pull up a large amount of skin and see significant improvement in the thigh/buttock area, you will benefit from a body lift.
Having children can create stretched or damaged abdominal muscles, loose skin, or sagging breasts. If you are looking to get back to your pre-baby body, a Mommy Makeover is the time-tested and proven answer. This surgical package consists of several different procedures that help restore the body to its pre-pregnancy shape. While a Mommy Makeover will be tailored to your needs, a typical procedure includes: Tummy tuck, Breast lift/mastopexy, Breast implants or fat grafting of the breasts, and Liposuction. Depending on your needs, a Mommy Makeover may also include: Areola or nipple repair, Brazilian butt lift (BBL), and Non-surgical options such as injectable fillers.
