Sticking to the diet, exercise and lifestyle changes necessary to lose weight is a major step toward better overall health. But once you've achieved your ideal weight, you may be surprised and frustrated by the loose saggy skin that's replaced your bulge.
It's common for people in Indianapolis, Indiana and nationwide to consult with a plastic surgeon after dramatic weight loss in order to determine which cosmetic plastic surgery procedures are most likely to produce the smooth, svelte physique you desire.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, there are definite pros and cons to undergoing plastic surgery after weight loss. The biggest benefit is that plastic surgery procedures can help delete excess skin that may be causing uncomfortable chafing, and subsequently provide a valuable self-esteem boost. The potential downside to undergoing plastic surgery after weight loss is that you will have some scarring, and these surgeries cannot prevent you from gaining weight again in the future.
If you're in Indianapolis, Indiana and you feel confident that surgery can help you, here are the most popular plastic surgery procedures undertaken by patients who have experienced dramatic weight loss:
- Tummy Tuck/Abdominoplasty
- Lower Body Lift
- Breast Lift
- Upper Arm Lift
It could be that after you visit with Dr. Joseph Fata at Renaissance Plastic Surgery, you may determine that a combination of body contouring procedures will be the right strategy to help you reach your goals.
