If you have recently lost a significant amount of weight, congratulations! Weight loss is a hard and sometimes a gruesome journey, and seeing the pounds melt off the scale is exciting. The results of extreme weight loss on your body’s appearance can be less exciting. If you were overweight for many years, it is likely that you have some stubborn areas that just won’t tone back up. There are three common cosmetic procedures that people undergo after extreme weight loss to get their body back.
The upper arms are a very difficult place to lose weight and tone flabby skin. Even if you lift weights, you may experience some sagging and flabbiness in your upper arms after losing a lot of weight. The skin and tissues become stretched with weight gain and often just will not return to normal after weight loss. An arm lift removes the stubborn fat and excess skin and tissues so that you can have slender arms.
The abdomen is another problem area after weight loss. Many people find that, as they gain weight, they develop a flap of fat and skin that is difficult to get rid of. Even after weight loss, the flap may remain. This excess fat, skin, and tissue can be removed with a tummy tuck. You may want to combine the tummy tuck with liposuction if you have some stubborn fat in the abdomen or love handles that you want to eliminate.
Thigh and Butt Lift
A combination thigh and butt lift is a great way to tone up one of the most visible parts of your body. Many women, and some men, enjoy wearing clothing that accentuates the butt and legs. After weight loss, the butt can sag with excess tissues and fat, and thighs can look dented and flabby. A thigh and butt lift will correct these issues so that you can have the firm, tight buttocks that you are aiming for.
