Body Contouring After Weight Loss

loose skin after weight lossLosing weight is a huge victory – but for many people, it can introduce a whole new set of problems.  Massive weight loss may make skin appear saggy and baggy, which can make an individual self-conscious about wearing smaller clothes.

Does this conundrum sound familiar to you? If you’ve lost weight but are embarrassed about sagging skin, you don’t have to hide under your bigger clothes.  You deserve the opportunity to wear those smaller shirts and jeans you’ve been dreaming of.

You deserve body contouring after weight loss from Dr. Nia Banks at the Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery.

Remove Excess Skin with Body Contouring

Located in Lanham, Maryland and serving the greater Baltimore/Washington DC areas, the Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery specializes in body contouring, particularly for patients who’ve lost a great deal of weight.  Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Banks uses advanced technologies and techniques to tighten and remove excess skin, allowing patients to proudly show off their weight loss.  The end result is smoother skin that perfectly contours a patient’s new figure.

One of the best body contouring treatments after significant weight loss is a tummy tuck.  This procedure uses an incision in the abdominal area, which provides Dr. Banks access to the abdominal muscles.  Dr. Banks then pulls the abdominal wall down, which changes the positioning of the stomach.  At this point, all excess skin is removed, providing the patient with a sleeker and more contoured appearance.

Tummy tucks are also popular options for patients who have lost weight after a pregnancy.  The tummy tuck helps repair the abdominal wall, which may have been weakened by the pregnancy.  The end result is a flatter stomach and a more defined waist.

Ideal candidates should be in good health and close to their ideal weight.  Most patients will see full recovery about two weeks after the operation.

In addition to a tummy tuck, Dr. Banks provides a number of body contouring solutions, including arm lifts, laser liposuction, and more.  For more information about body contouring after weight loss, schedule a consultation with Dr. Banks at the Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery in Lanham, MD today.
