At The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery, our practice offers a wide range of treatments for any body and facial concern. One aspect of our facility is that of body contouring, and both men and women can enjoy modifications to specific areas of the body to enhance their curves and look their absolute best. Many of these include:
Body Contouring after Major Weight Loss
Whether patients have lost weight from gastric bypass surgery or good old fashioned diet and exercise, the loss of many pounds in a short period of time can result in lots of excess skin. Dr. Thuan Nguyen can perform reconstructive surgery to remove this extra fat that has become stretched due to weight gain and allow patients to feel confident in their new bodies.
A brachioplasty, also known as an “arm lift,” can be done to remove loose skin around the upper arms. This area can make many men and women self-conscious, especially when wearing tank tops and dresses that expose the arms. The procedure can remove both excess skin and fat at the same time to provide firmer, smaller arms.
Extreme weight loss often comes with aftereffects such as extra skin around the abdomen. This “apron” can not only be unsightly but can result in many personal hygiene challenges. The folds of the skin can cause infections and be a factor in developing lower back pain. A panniculectomy will remove this extra skin and tighten the area.
When weight loss results in extra skin around the thighs, this can become uncomfortable and rub against clothing. These individuals may also be more at risk for developing rashes and experiencing chaffing. A thigh lift will remove the extra skin and enhance the natural shape of the upper legs.
