Benefits of Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss
When a patient loses a significant amount of weight through bariatric surgery or traditional weight-loss methods, they can be left with a large amount of excess skin that detracts from their newly enhanced figure. Body contouring surgery is designed to tighten and reshape loose skin and underlying tissue, helping to improve a patient's physical appearance and confidence. At San Antonio Plastic Surgery Center, skilled surgeon Dr. Peter Fisher can use several different contouring procedures to help remove excess skin and create a more taut and smooth silhouette. We can review the many benefits of body contouring after massive weight loss with you during a personal consultation at our San Antonio, TX, practice.

Boost Your Confidence and Appearance
Dr. Fisher and his staff specialize in using body contouring to help improve the lives of patients who have experienced massive weight loss. The excess skin that remains after bariatric surgery can significantly detract from your appearance and new commitment to a healthier lifestyle. By eliminating extra tissue around the stomach, arms, thighs, and other areas, we can complement the results of a bariatric procedure. For example, when a female patient loses a large amount of fat in the upper body, their breasts can sag and their can nipples become stretched. In these cases, Dr. Fisher can use a breast lift procedure to reposition the areolae and provide a more youthful appearance to the bust.
Restore Your Health
In addition to impacting your appearance, excess skin can also negatively affect a patient's health. Folds of loose tissue can make hygiene more difficult, resulting in chafing or leading to the development of a skin infection. Furthermore, sagging skin around the arms or thighs can also limit a patient's range of motion. Dr. Fisher can use a number of contouring procedures to help reveal your tighter curves and slimmer figure, boosting your confidence and physical appeal.
Customizing Your Procedure
Dr. Fisher understands that each patient has unique concerns and goals. When you visit our office, our compassionate team will work closely with you to develop an effective treatment plan that will best meet your needs. The type and complexity of your contouring treatments will depend upon the amount of excess skin retained in each area of your body.
It is important to note that body contouring is not designed to help you lose weight, and it will not help reshape your body. Rather, it is ideal for patients who have already undergone weight-loss treatment. Dr. Fisher works with patients to help identify the best time for body contouring during their weight-loss journey. After surgery, patients should use proper diet and exercise to help maintain the results of their body contouring procedure.
