Body Contouring After Major Weight Loss Surgery
Weight loss has many benefits. However after any substantial amount of weight loss due to weight loss surgery and/or lifestyle changes, the skin and tissues often lack the elasticity to conform to the reduced body size. This may leave empty folds of skin on the face, neck, arms, chest, breast, tummy, back and thighs. These excess folds of skin can cause problems with rashes, problems with mobility and exercise, difficulty fitting clothing and concerns about body image.
This surgery removes excess skin and is tailored to fit the smaller body underneath. The improvement in body shape can result in scars where the skin is removed. Terry has extensive experience in patients with massive weight loss and surgery to correct and improve their body shape and can advise the best course of action to minimise scarring.
