As we all know, a healthy lifestyle is the best way to achieve the physique you desire – but for some patients, no amount of exercise and dieting seems to yield the contours they want.
In such cases, several cosmetic and surgical body contouring procedures can boost the effectiveness of a nutritional and exercise plan.
Procedures such as a breast lift, tummy tuck, or lower body lift can all reduce excess skin and improve the underlying tone and visible shape and contour of your body.
Particularly after substantial weight loss, patients can benefit significantly from procedures that remove sagging, loose skin, creating a taut, smooth figure. Many people lose weight after winter and want to be ready for the summer sun, and body contouring is a highly effective manner in which to do so.
How can I Benefit From Body Contouring?
Having a shapely, attractive physique means many things.
Having a body that matches your build and height, having smooth, healthy skin, and having toned, capable muscles all contribute to a fit, healthy appearance.
Many patients lose large amounts of weight, after which they have loose skin and stretch marks. Once patients achieve and stabilize their body weight and feel fit and healthy, it can be discouraging to have excess, flabby skin hiding the results of their dedication and hard work.
Here is where body contouring procedures are especially useful – by providing tight, smooth, healthy skin, and body contours that reveal the underlying musculature.
Specific areas of concern for many patients are the breasts, abdomen, and buttocks.
Over time, the breasts begin to sag and lose their shapely aesthetic. Breast lifts are an increasingly popular procedure undertaken to improve the shape and contour of the breasts after weight loss, aging, and nursing.
By removing excess skin around the breasts, skilled surgeons can reestablish firm, shapely breasts that sit in a youthful position high on the chest, and move the nipple and areola in a more forward position. This look is beautiful in summer attire, such as sports bras and bikinis!
Everyone likes to show a bit of belly in the summer to cool down and display the results of their hard work at the gym!
Fortunately, the tummy tuck has become a highly refined procedure that involves your surgeon excising unsightly, loose skin around the lower abdomen, which tightens the whole area up and results in a flat, smooth, attractive belly.
Butt or Thigh Lift
The bottom and thighs are yet another area particularly susceptible to lots of excess skin and poor contours after weight loss.
A Brazilian butt lift or thigh lift is the perfect procedure to eliminate “saddlebags,” and, for many people, help in achieving the sexy, elusive “thigh gap” that looks great in summer bikini bottoms or short shorts.
