In the months leading up to the summer, I see an influx of women seeking to re-contour their figures. They are usually trying to plan ahead, getting their ‘problem areas’ taken care of well in advance of spring and summer's more revealing clothing styles.
Removes loose, hanging skin from the body, after gastric bypass surgery, stomach stapling or gastric banding by my experience i will suggest to every body that dont go for these surgeries for body wt loss(most of the patient have not very good experience after these surgery). Excess skin commonly loses its elasticity and hangs from the arms, legs, chest and stomach. Body contouring, also known as body shaping or a body lift, is performed to improve this condition. The complete body contouring process includes liposuction, tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, and other procedures as necessary on a case by case basis.
2 to 5 hours, depending on the amount of skin to be removed. Surgeons may schedule follow-up operations over several months.
Long scars on the inside of the legs, underneath the arms, across the stomach, and extending across the hips. They may take several years to fade.
Modest amounts of pain, bruising and swelling are present after the procedure. Pain is controlled with medications while any excess fluid is drained away by special instruments. Back to work: 6 weeks. Resume exercise: after 8 weeks. Healing of scars: up to 1 year.
Possible risks include blood clots, infection, and bleeding under the incisions.
Permanent, but sensitive to diet and exercise.
A tummy tuck, (abdominoplasty) is usually the first step in body contouring. Excess skin is then removed from legs, arms and breast area.
