Surgical body contouring will remove the excess fat and skin that remained after major weight loss, improving the shape of the support tissue underneath. When the skin lacks elasticity after major weight loss, body contouring can help. The result gives a tighter, smoother appearance, and increases elasticity. In the process of body contouring, many procedures may be performed; facelift, breast lift, tummy tuck, lower body lift, thigh lift, and upper arm lift can all contribute to the positive and dramatic results of body contouring. Additionally, the completion of all these procedures in conjunction is much safer and easier than undergoing them separately, as it eliminates the requirement for sedation and surgery for multiple occurrences across long periods of time. Because general anesthesia is needed for the procedure, it is important to discuss the risks, along with your medical history, with your Orlando cosmetic surgeon beforehand. If you’re interested in body contouring, contact Dr. Richard Arabitg to find out if you are a candidate.
