Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring describes surgical procedures that help refine your body following dramatic weight loss. You may have lost weight with surgery or because of diligent lifestyle changes. 

When that happens, your skin and other tissues that stretched out when you were a larger size lose their elasticity and fail to conform to your new body size.

Body contouring surgeries remove excess sagging skin and fat and simultaneously shape the underlying support tissues. Your physique will look in proportion with smooth contours.

What are the types of body contouring procedures?

Body contouring procedures correct sagging skin all over your body. Procedures at POSH Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery include:

  • Facelifts to address sagging skin of the jowls, neck, and mid-face
  • Breast lifts to address sagging, flattened breasts
  • Lower body lifts to correct lax skin in your abdomen, buttocks, and thighs
  • Tummy tucks to remove an “apron” of skin
  • Medial thigh lifts to correct droopy inner thighs
  • Arm lifts to raise loose skin on the upper arm

Discuss your bothersome areas with Dr. Gbulie during your consultation and he can explain exactly which body contouring procedures are right for you.

Who is a candidate for body contouring?

If you’ve lost a notable amount of weight and are bothered by sagging skin, explore your body contouring options. 

The right candidates for body contouring are in generally good health and have stabilized their weight. Body contouring refines previous weight loss, it doesn’t serve as a method of comprehensive weight loss.

You should also be a nonsmoker and have realistic expectations from the procedure. 

Body contouring procedures offer a permanent solution to sagging skin, but it’s important for you to remain committed to a healthy lifestyle to avoid significant weight gain.

When will I notice the results of body contouring?

You’ll notice many of the benefits of body contouring immediately after your procedure, but the final results evolve over several months as swelling reduces and your skin settles. You may have some visible scars.

While gravity and aging continue to affect your skin, the effects of body contouring are long-lasting as long as you maintain good exercise and dietary habits.
