Body contouring procedures are designed to improve the appearance in people who have excess skin and fat in the abdominal area, especially after weight loss surgery. Following a weight loss surgery like gastric bypass or a sleeve gastrectomy, many people lose a tremendous amount of weight in a relatively short time period. This weight loss means that a great deal of fat is gone, but the skin will remain. That skin can become a frustrating and embarrassing problem for many people. Body contouring procedures can excise that skin and create a much improved new contour. The body contouring procedure takes only around 25 minutes, and multiple sections of the body can be contoured during the same procedure if desired.Who is a Good Candidate For Body Contouring?
In most cases, the ideal candidate for body contouring is a person who has lost the desired amount of weight after their weight loss surgery. Once a patient's weight has become stable, body contouring can produce truly dramatic and impressive results.
There is virtually no recovery time for body contouring surgery. Patients usually report only a slight feeling of tenderness, similar to the feeling after a workout at the gym.
