The Best Body Contouring Procedures After Weight Loss
Reaching your goal weight is outstanding, no matter what steps you took to get there. But after losing significant weight, many men and women experience another aesthetic problem – excess, sagging skin.
That’s where plastic surgery can help. Plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Bresnick can enhance your body shape and tone with procedures designed to address sagging skin and reinforce damaged tissues. Here are the top four surgeries he recommends to make your body look lean and toned.
1. Breast Lift
Youthful, perky breasts boost confidence and allow women to wear stylish clothing. An enhanced breast location is possible with the time-tested mastopexy procedure, better known as a breast lift. Top Los Angeles breast surgeon, Dr. Bresnick, can help you love your breast shape, especially if loose tissue and relaxed skin are cosmetic concerns after major weight loss.
Even after you attain your goal weight, stubborn bulges may remain. Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries worldwide because it addresses problem areas of diet- and exercise-resistant fat.
Dr. Bresnick offers tumescent or power-assisted liposuction to help you realize your ideal shape. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, these procedures provide natural-looking, long-lasting outcomes.
Dr. Bresnick also offers Renuvion skin tightening with your liposuction. This revolutionary procedure uses radiofrequency energy and helium gas to significantly tighten your skin from the inside as the liposuction is performed, allowing for a leaner look with tighter skin.
3. Tummy Tuck
Also known as abdominoplasty, tummy tuck surgery is an optimal procedure for people who need help with their core. Abdominoplasty is ideal for women who’ve had multiple pregnancies or patients of any gender identity who have achieved significant weight loss. The procedure also allows the removal of excess skin and fat at the same time as core tightening.
Dr. Bresnick is an expert in performing abdominoplasty, having lectured and taught hundreds of plastic surgeons on the topic. He was one of the first surgeons to explain the pain reduction pump for the tummy tuck procedure. He has published his findings in the leading medical journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
4. Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover addresses many cosmetic issues women face after childbirth and breastfeeding. However, this customized combination of plastic surgeries can also help address the consequences of significant weight loss. Adding one or more of the above-mentioned procedures into the same operation can help provide a comprehensive solution to sagging skin and loose tissues on the upper body.
