Body contouring options after weight loss

Losing weight (and keeping it off) is a lot of hard work. There are strict diets to follow, tough workouts to complete and temptations to avoid. If you’ve successfully achieved significant weight loss, you absolutely deserve to have the body you want.

Unfortunately, the downside to losing weight often comes in the form excess skin and other unwanted physical side effects. It’s not fair that saggy skin doesn’t disappear with the fat you’ve lost. Luckily, there’s an array of plastic surgeries and facial treatments that can give you the appearance you want to feel confident and beautiful everyday.

Common plastic surgeries

Arm lift

An arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess sagging skin under the upper arm. This surgery is popular with patients who lose a significant amount of weight because exercise cannot correct the drooping appearance of upper arms. Arm lift surgery will give your arms a tighter, smoother look once healed.

Results are expected to last a long time, as long as patients maintain a stable weight and exercise regimen. Candidates may qualify if:

·        You have significant upper arm skin that lost its elasticity

·        Your weight is relatively stable

·        You are not significantly overweight

Tummy tuck

A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin from the abdominal area while also building a firmer abdominal profile by restoring weakened muscles. Despite normal exercise and healthy eating, many people struggle to achieve the look of a more toned abdomen. Significant weight loss can also leave the stomach area with saggy or excess skin.

After about two weeks post-surgery, your abdomen will be firmer, smoother and a better match to the proportions of your body type and weight. The scar from tummy tuck surgery can take anywhere from a few months to a year to fade. You may qualify for this surgery if:

·        You have a stable weight

·        You’re a non-smoker

·        The appearance of your abdomen bothers you

Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation can be utilized to correct several aesthetic concerns, including restoring breast volume after significant weight loss, increasing the overall size of breast or improving breast symmetry. This surgery can improve the shape of breasts and enhance your self-confidence.

It is important to know that breast implants are not considered to have long-lasting effects. Over time, breasts naturally change from hormonal factors, aging and weight changes. You should see your plastic surgeon annually to evaluate the condition of your breast implants. Candidates may qualify for breast augmentation if:

·        You are not pregnant or breastfeeding

·        You are dissatisfied with your breasts’ size, shape or symmetry

·        Your breasts have lost their volume due to pregnancy or weight loss

Facial enhancements


Kybella is an injectable treatment that safely removes fat around the chin to lessen the appearance of a double chin. This treatment is more effective than simply losing weight because Kybella permanently destroys fat cells rather than shrinking them only.

Doctors prepare a patient for plastic surgery

Each treatment is administered at least one month apart, with no more than 6 treatments per patient. The injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes with multiple, small injections per treatment session.

Juvederm XC

Juvederm XC is an injectable gel that helps smooth away facial wrinkles and folds while adding volume to your skin. It can give you a more youthful appearance for up to one year.  It is also used to correct facial concerns, such as filling in acne scars, correcting lip deformities and filling in dark circles under the eyes.

If you’re unsatisfied with your physical appearance and are ready to make a change, call the medical professionals at Northwest Weight Loss Surgery to schedule an appointment today.
