Body Contouring Options After Extreme Weight Loss

If you have been on a weight loss journey, then you know how great it feels to have finally reached your goals. After taking the time and effort to watch what you eat, maintain a rigorous activity level, and make major changes in your life, you may want to sit back and finally enjoy the results of your hard work. But unfortunately, extreme weight loss can leave behind sagging, loose skin that may detract from your ability to appreciate your hard work. Fortunately, there are a variety of body contouring options available to help you create the sculpted look you have been seeking.

Body Lift

One of the most comprehensive methods for reviving your new and improved body and erasing the excess skin left from your impressive weight loss is with a body lift. Most commonly used to treat the abdomen, arms, back, breasts, buttocks, face, thighs and trunk, a body lift is a series of procedures intended to give you an overall sculpted and enhanced appearance. Instead of just targeting a single area, you can truly give your lighter body an overhaul, so that you feel confident stepping out in your smaller size.

Tummy Tuck

A tried and true method for removing excess skin, a tummy tuck has been trusted by men and women alike to help create the dream body they have always desired. While diet and exercise may have helped you shed the pounds, it unfortunately will not work as well in tightening up the flabby skin that remains. This is why a tummy tuck is so helpful. The procedure lifts the abdominal wall, before pulling it down and redraping it, so that the maximum amount of skin can be removed. Additionally, the abdominal wall lining is tightened, giving you a flat, toned tummy and a perfectly defined waist.


Another excellent option for redefining your new body after weight loss is VelaShape®. This noninvasive procedure specifically targets areas of the body that have been resistant to your weight loss efforts. Although not a replacement for weight loss, it can sculpt the areas of the neck, arms, thighs, buttocks, flanks and abdomen, to put the final touches on all of your hard work. During the procedure, mechanical rollers massage and smooth out the skin while sending radiofrequency into the treatment area. This kills the fat cells, which will then be naturally flushed out of the body.
