After losing a substantial amount of weight, many men and women find that their new, slimmer figure is obscured by excess skin. When this occurs, a body contouring procedure can be a vital final step on your weight loss journey.

Excess skin: A common problem after weight loss

When the skin is stretched for a long time, it eventually loses some of its natural elasticity. As such, it may not be able to contour to your new figure after losing weight – resulting in excess, sagging skin.

This common problem is disheartening to patients who have gone to great lengths to lose weight. Fortunately, a custom body contouring procedure can correct the hanging tissue and reveal the new body you’ve worked so hard to achieve.

The procedure
What to expect

Body contouring after weight loss is a personalized blend of procedures that are designed to remove excess skin from the problem areas that concern you most. Under general anesthesia, Dr. Fenner can perform multiple procedures during one surgery – delivering a comprehensive transformation. Although your body contouring experience will be customized to your needs, most of our patients select a combination of the following approaches:

  • Tummy tuck: A tummy tuck is designed to restore a firm midsection. When done correctly, the procedure can correct hanging skin, trim away excess tissue, and tighten lax abdominal muscles.
  • Breast lift: Drooping breasts are a common issue following substantial weight loss. When this occurs, a subtle lift can restore a light and perky chest. Depending on your needs, the lift can be combined with a breast reduction or a breast augmentation.
  • Arm lift: A mini or extended arm lift with Dr. Fenner is designed to remove loose skin in the area, unveiling the contoured arms you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
  • Thigh lift: The thigh lift is a common body contouring procedure after dramatic weight loss. The procedure can remove excess skin and fat on both the inner and outer thighs – revealing toned upper legs.
  • Lower body lift: If most of your lower body is affected by excess skin, a lower body lift may be in your best interest. This procedure can contour and elevate the abdomen, outer thighs and buttocks – dramatically improving your overall body contour.
