If you have managed to lose a significant amount of weight, you deserve to be thrilled with the end result. Whether you did it through diet and exercise or a surgical weight-loss procedure, you are to be congratulated on achieving your goal. If, however, you have made it to your target weight, but you are not happy due to excess skin, loose tissue, or issues with your physical proportions, then body contouring may be the answer.
After a large weight loss, areas such as the upper arms, breasts, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs may be left with a saggy, deflated look.
Weight loss often leaves behind excess skin that cannot shrink down to your new body shape. Skin elasticity is a function of age and heredity and is unlikely to change for the better as time goes on. As well, after supporting a large amount of fat for a long time, the underlying tissues may have become stretched and now lack tone. Finally, there may be stubborn fat deposits that have not shrunk in proportion with the rest of your weight loss, leaving you with an uneven look.
Body contouring is designed to correct these issues so that you can fully enjoy the results of your weight-loss efforts.
What is Body Contouring after Weight Loss?
Body contouring is a combination of a number of procedures, all of which are designed to remove excess skin and fat and to tighten underlying tissue in order to give you a natural, toned look and a firm, well-proportioned body.
A body contouring plan will normally encompass some of the following procedures:
Gives you toned arms by removing excess skin and tightening tissue.
Makes sagging breasts more pert and youthful; sometimes breast implants are used to improve size and shape at the same time.
Creates a nice, smooth, flat tummy by eliminating sagging skin and tightening slack abdominal muscles, as well as removing any stubborn fat deposits.

Improves the shape of the upper legs by excising unwanted skin and tightening the underlying tissue.
If a significant amount of weight has been lost in the face and neck, a facelift may also be recommended.
