Body Contouring

Obesity rates are increasing in America. However, as more people come to understand the dangerous health hazards of excess weight, an increasing number are also opting to lose that weight. Some are able to do so with lifestyle changes like diet and exercise. Others choose to get help by way of gastric bypass surgery. The resulting change is termed “massive weight loss,” which is generally considered a reduction in weight of 100+ pounds or at least 50% of your excess weight.

Losing that much weight is a truly amazing accomplishment. Unfortunately, it can leave you with a new set of problems. The fat is gone, but the skin remains.

As you gain weight, your skin grows and stretches to accommodate increasing fat deposits. Think of a balloon as it inflates. Conversely, significant weight loss dramatically reduces the amount of fat, but most often, the skin is no longer elastic enough to contract accordingly. So, like a balloon, it becomes floppy. You’re left with excessive sagging skin, most commonly in the abdomen, breasts, back, flanks, upper arms, buttocks, thighs and face.
