If you have recently lost a significant amount of weight, congratulations on completing your weight loss journey! But you may not feel as though there is something to celebrate. Often, extreme weight loss leaves flabs behind where the skin has stretched or where stubborn fat has refused to leave. In these cases, there are a few surgeries that can be very helpful in getting back the figure you are looking for.
An arm lift is usually done to remove excess skin and stubborn fat from the upper arms. Often, when people gain weight, their upper arms become flabby, and weight loss does not necessarily fix this problem. An arm lift will remove the excess skin and any remaining stubborn fat so that you can have the slim arms that match your new figure.
A thigh lift accomplishes the same thing as an arm lift, but it’s for your thighs. The thighs are often one of the places that stubborn fat refuses to leave. Even if you do manage to lose the weight from your thighs, you could be left with stretched skin that is highly unflattering. A thigh lift will help you regain a figure that matches your efforts.
A belt lipectomy is one of the most common procedures after extreme weight loss. Most people who gain and lose weight see the most significant change in their abdomen. Weight loss in this area can leave you with flabby excess skin that prevents you from wearing the size you worked so hard to get into. A belt lipectomy removes excess skin in a belt around your abdomen, hips, and back.
