surgery after massive weight loss

life after weight loss

Weight loss is a tremendous accomplishment that has numerous health benefits. However, once you have reached your weight loss goal, your body may not appear as fit and healthy as you would like. Skin can be loose and sagging, and some patients find that their body shape looks incongruous. If this is the case for you, consider surgical body contouring at Intermountain.

After weight reduction surgery or substantial weight loss, the skin and tissues often lack elasticity, having lost their ability to conform to a smaller body size. Skin that was once stretched out becomes unsupported, causing it to sag. In the breast area, this causes flattening, sagging, and downward-pointing nipples. Our surgeons correct sagging, flattened breasts using a breast lift. This can be done in conjunction with other post-weight loss procedures such as tummy tuck or arm lift.

Common body contouring surgical procedures such as liposuction, tummy tuck, arm lift, butt lift, and thigh lift are particularly beneficial for patients who have achieved dramatic weight loss. We can remove excess fat and skin from nearly any part of the body, improving the tone of your body for a more smooth and natural body contour. Tummy tuck, liposuction and other body contouring procedures can help you further improve your confidence in your appearance.
