Cosmetic surgery after weight loss
Losing a large amount of weight is a significant achievement. How your body changes when losing this weight depends on a number of factors, including age, skin condition, how quickly you lose weight and whether you exercise.
Loosing a large amount of weigh can leave you with unwanted loose or excess skin. Excess skin can affect both your self-esteem and your physical ability and prevent you fully benefitting from your weight loss success.
Cosmetic surgery such as reconstructive body contouring plastic surgery can help to reshape your body after weight loss with procedures including breast uplift, tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift and buttock lift and even facial surgery, helping you to enjoy your new body shape and size.
Patients who undergo reconstructive body contouring plastic surgery following massive weight loss can experience significant improvements in their physical function, emotional well being, body image satisfaction, physical wellbeing and quality of life.
Cosmetic procedures after weigh loss are different to those performed on non-weight loss surgery patients and require specialist surgeons. Our expert consultants are experienced in this type of surgery and will discuss your options carefully with you before going ahead.
To achieve the best body shape, you should be close to your ideal body weight before having this type of cosmetic surgery.
