What is Body Contouring?

Following significant weight loss, extensive skin may be left after the fat has disappeared. This is because the skin typically does not have the resilience to snap back and cover the new body shape. Body contouring after massive weight loss is a procedure to remove excess skin or remaining fat and resculpt the figure to create a taut, healthy, proportioned figure.

What Results Can I Expect From a Body Contouring Procedure?

Patients who undergo body contouring will experience immediate, visible results following the procedure, which, with diet and exercise, are long-lasting. The changes will become more apparent with time as the body adjusts to its newly sculpted shape. As the procedure requires incisions, scarring is to be expected, but most patients feel the trade-off is well worth it. The scars fade with time, becoming less visible. The final outcome is a slimmed, contoured body, free from excess skin, fat, and tissue, with a figure that looks great in tighter clothing, with concerns about body image just a dim memory.

Arm Lift After Weight Loss

One of the most common areas to be left with hanging skin and fat is the upper arms. This aesthetic problem can be fully resolved with a custom arm lift. Excess skin and fat are removed, and the upper arm structure is tightened and sculpted, leaving the patient confident when wearing sleeveless tops, swimwear, and tight clothing – it is life-changing!

Thigh Lift After Weight Loss

After weight loss, the thigh region may be left with sagging, hanging skin, fat, and tissue. A thigh lift, performed by Dr. Trey Sands, will resculpt the thighs by removing all excess skin and fat, reshaping the area, and creating a slimmed, taut look.

What is the Recovery Process After Body Contouring?

The recovery after body contouring will take some time, but the rewards are great. During recovery, the treated areas are protected with compression garments to hold the newly reshaped tissues in place. Depending on the extent of the procedure, patients must avoid bending, straining, or lifting for two weeks or more, allowing the incisions to heal nicely. Any discomfort experienced in this stage of healing is managed with prescription pain medication. The SANDS Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery medical team will monitor the patient’s recovery with several follow-up appointments and offer guidance and support throughout the process.
