Plastic Surgery Followed by Weight Loss :

Plastic Surgery Followed by Weight Loss
Exercise and proper diet are the best ways to lose your weight. But, several people have tried those ways for many years to lose their additional weight. Obesity can cause serious health problems in men and women and for people in this frustrating situation, weight loss surgery may be a choice.

Weight loss surgery changes the anatomy of your digestive system to limit the amount of food you eat and digest. Also, the surgery helps in losing weight and also reduces the risk of health conditions associated with obesity.

After undergoing the tremendous weight loss, you will be left with a great amount of excess, hanging skin at several areas of the body. The lack of elasticity of the remaining skin often causes excessive amount of skin to accumulate and hang in various parts of the body, such as neck, face, lower and upper abdomen, arm, back, buttocks, legs, thighs, calves, and breasts. Excess skin can also cause skin irritation, infection and skin breakdown.

Here are few plastic surgery procedures that most people consider after weight loss:

Body lift: It is one of the most common procedures to improve your body's appearance after a weight loss surgery. It can dramatically change your appearance and the results are permanent. It improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissues that support fat and skin.

Tummy tuck: This procedure is carried out as a part of your body lift surgery. It helps t remove fat and skin and in some cases it helps tighten the abdominal muscles thus creating a smoother and firmer abdomen. Some people may also need liposuction along with tummy tuck to make the abdomen firmer.

Breast lift: Breast lift surgery can help lift, firm and reshape a woman's sagging breasts. During the breast lift surgery, excess skin and tissues are removed and also the nipple is repositioned higher on the chest. Some women also require breast implant along with breast lift in order to improve the shape.

Arm lift: This surgery reduces excess skin and fat between the underarm and elbow. Arm lift reshapes your arms to result in smoother skin and contours and finally gives you a toned and proportionate look.

Thigh lift: Thigh lift surgery can reshape your thighs by reducing excess skin and fat thus giving you smooth skin and well-proportioned contours of thighs as well as lower body.

But all the people can't consider body contouring after weight loss. The results are usually dramatic and provide a significant functional and aesthetic benefit to the patient. You can be a good candidate for plastic surgery after weight loss if:

• You are a non smoker
• Your weight has stabilized
• You are maintaining fitness, healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition
• You have realistic goals and positive attitude towards the surgery
• You don't have any medical conditions that the healing process or increase the surgery risk
