A weight loss journey is one that takes years of dedication and discipline. For people who lose a significant amount of weight, loose skin or uneven weight distributions throughout their body can lead to loss of confidence in their new body. After achieving a difficult feat, plastic surgery can help those with weight loss enjoy their new body.
The most common procedures performed after weight loss include: tummy tuck, liposuction, arm lift, and breast augmentation. Tummy tuck and arm lift can remove excess skin and tighten it to match your new proportions. Liposuction often helps remove stubborn fat that does not respond to diet or exercise and can help tone your figure.
Breast augmentation can restore breast volume lost from weight loss. During weight loss, the breast can sometimes lose fat like the other parts of the body. In some cases, this can cause an imbalance of proportions that breast implants can solve. Additionally, weight loss can cause breast sagging due to excess skin or conversely, no fat is lost in the breasts, resulting in overly large breasts. Therefore, your plastic surgeon may recommend a breast lift or reduction.
