Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey Post Weight Loss Body Contouring
For many people, body sculpting after bariatric or post weight loss body contouring isn’t just a second chance, but really a chance for a second life.
Body sculpting after weight loss surgery can help you improve your appearance, and create the personal lifestyle changes and results not possible with diet and exercise alone. With body sculpting, the loose skin, skin folds, and tissues can be reshaped around the abdomen, waist, legs, arms, breast, and neck.
In normal weight loss, the retraction of skin and tissues to their previous state is expected. However, in weight loss following surgery, the skin and tissues are permanently damaged. And, in the case of skin, the elastic fibers are broken, lending to the skin’s surface appearance.
While body sculpting is an option for many people, it should only be considered when your weight has stabilized after bariatric surgery. This time period can range from 6 months to 2 years depending on your pre-operative weight. Only your doctor can determine a treatment plan that’s right for you.
