Body Contouring Surgery Is Used, Especially After Major Weight Loss When A Lack Of Elasticity Can Result In Heavy And Loose Skin.

After taking great strides to lose weight, either through dieting and exercise or bariatric surgery, it can be upsetting to then have upper arms that appear loose or hanging pockets of skin around the abdomen, buttocks and thighs. This can contribute to a range of health problems, including personal hygiene issues, skin thinning, skin tearing, back and shoulder pain, poor posture, infections and chronic rashes, as well as difficulty exercising and walking.

Body contouring post weight loss surgery is aimed to define various body areas, such as the upper torso and arms, the waist, abdomen, buttocks and thighs. These procedures are not a weight loss alternative nor a method of fat reduction, however, should be considered as the final phase of your weight loss experience

There are several options and stages when it comes to body contouring after weight loss, all designed to remove excessive amounts of skin a and reshape the remaining skin. As everyone is different, Dr Lim will develop a personalised surgical plan that focuses on your current condition and goals.

For more information on these procedures, select from the treatments above or contact our office for a consultation.
