This is not a grave problem as it can be easily fixed with the help of a simple body contouring surgery.

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a special type of surgery that most people opt for after they have lost massive weight. It will help you get rid of all those sagging skin which makes you lose your self-confidence and self-esteem. Once you have undergone the body contouring at our clinic, you will see how smoother contours will become. Of course, a dramatic weight loss will make you feel confident about yourself but it has some disadvantages as well. Such sudden change in weight makes your skin lose its elasticity. But with a simple body contouring mechanism, you can get your toned and firm skin back again.

How is the surgery following massive weight loss done?

The surgery following massive weight loss is nothing but a body contouring one and the various steps in the entire procedure are listed below:

  • To ensure that you do not feel any discomfort during the surgical procedure, the anesthetist will administer you with anesthesia. It might be a general anesthesia or even an intravenous sedation depending on your need.
  • Then the incisions will be given. The length and pattern of the incisions are determined by the surgeons before the surgery and both these factors depend on how much skin you need to get removed. But with the advanced techniques of our clinic, no extra incisions will be done and their exact location will be strategically determined. And the location of the incisions will be chosen in a way that you do not face any problem with them in future as they will get hidden by your clothing.
  • After the excess skin is removed, the incisions are approximated with sutures.

What preparation should you take before the surgery?

When you will visit your surgeon before the surgery, you must ask him or her about the preparatory steps that you should take before the surgery. The most foremost step involves letting your surgeon know about the medications that you currently have if there are any. And if those medications are not compatible with your surgery, then the surgeon might advise you to stop taking them for a certain period of time. Consequently, they might also suggest you some other medications to be taken. If you have the habit of smoking, then you should better stop it months before your surgery. There are certain drugs which must be stopped and these include aspirin and other herbal supplements as the most common ones.
