Weight loss is one of the main goals for many plastic surgery patients. Many patients generally say they’d like to lose more bodyweight, whether interested in facial surgery, breast surgery, or a body contouring treatment.
So, once you achieve your body weight goal, what next? What procedures are available to help you keep your new physique, maintain motivation, and get closer to your ideal body? Here, Dr. Farber discusses two different types of procedures that can help patients after they’ve lost weight.
After losing significant amounts of body weight, there is generally excess skin left behind. This is because the skin has been stretched beyond its ability to return to its original form, and surgery is required to remove the excess skin to create a tight, smooth, contour-hugging surface.
Lifts include tummy tucks, halo lifts, Brazilian butt lifts, arm lifts, and thigh lifts, each designed to remove excess skin from a particular body area and sculpt that body part into a pleasing aesthetic form.
Lift procedures are generally more extensive surgeries or can be considered macro procedures that generally treat more extensive areas. For some patients, this is ideal, but for others, more advanced and localized treatment is perfect. For this, Dr. Farber offers body sculpting.
Body sculpting is the process of further removing unwanted fatty tissue and tightening the excess skin further. These procedures are generally done to help patients near or at their ideal body weight and who have successfully eliminated excess skin.
Liposuction and high-definition liposuction are ideal procedures in such cases. They complement a weight-loss routine by adding the finishing touches to a physique, which can help with muscle definition and tone.
