Body Contouring After Major Weight Loss
Body Contouring is an excellent way to improve overall aesthetics after major weight loss.
Northern Nevada has gotten serious about losing weight. The popularity of TV shows like The Biggest Loser has made a great many people in the Reno/Tahoe region rethink their lifestyle, and encouraged them to lead healthier lives. Whether you have lost a lot of weight through diet and exercise, or undergone bariatric or some other related weight loss surgery, following up with body contouring is the next logical step.
After you reach your new, healthier body weight, there can still be issues of excess and flabby skin and tissue all over your body. An upper and/or lower body lift can be the answer: necklift, armlift, buttocks and thigh lift, breast lift, and tummy tuck address these issues. Body Contouring procedures can serve to bring your overall body image into alignment with your more healthy height/weight proportions.
Body Contouring procedures can be performed in incremental steps.
Some people like to have all of their body contouring surgeries performed in one sitting, and there are valid arguments for taking all those steps at once: getting it all out of the way, a single period of healing and possibly integrating liposuction into the contouring. But it is hardly necessary get all of your procedures and lifts out the way in one day.
Many people like to spread their surgeries over many months, or even a few years, in order to heal between procedures or simply spread the costs over a longer amount of time. It is also possible to have more targeted body contouring procedures, as your new silhouette emerges over time.
