Body ContouringBody shaping after major weight loss enhances the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin and removes hanging fat and skin.
These may include one or a combination of incisions in a circular pattern around the areola, in a line extending from the areola to the breast crease, and horizontally along the breast crease.
A breast implant also may be used to enhance breast shape and size.
The smoother, tighter contours that result from upper arm contouring are apparent almost immediately, although initially obscured by swelling and bruising. In addition, skin quality is dramatically improved in both appearance and texture.
Improving contours of the outer thigh may require an incision extending from the groin around the hip. Through these incisions your plastic surgeon will tighten tissues for a smoother, better toned thigh.
The risks include:
- Abnormal scarring
- Poor wound healing
- Wound infection
- Risk of anesthesia
- Skin necrosis
- Altered skin sensation
- Skin colour changes
- Major wound gap
- Fat necrosis and seroma formation
- Damage to the nerves and blood vessels.
These risk factors and others will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It is important that you address all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon.
