Body contouring after major weight loss reduces the excess skin and fat that is left behind after a major weight loss.
This sagging skin commonly develops around the face, neck, upper arms, breast, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. If you have lost a significant amount of weight either through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, and you are at your optimum weight loss goal, you may be a good candidate for this procedure.
Depending on individual patient factors and the extent of surgery needed, multiple operations performed in stages may be required. In such cases, the waiting period between surgeries ranges from weeks to several months or longer.
