The abdomen is a primary concern for most patients following weight loss. Your excess abdominal skin can look like a sack, with your belly button in a lower position. If you have worked hard to develop your abdominal muscles, you want to be able to reveal a flatter, more toned mid-section. An extended tummy tuck can provide you with the results you desire.
Tissue accumulation along the waist and hips can obscure the attractive definition many patients, especially women, are attempting to achieve. Removing this unwanted skin and fat during an extended tummy tuck can help provide more definition and attractive curves in women and create a leaner, more tapered waist in men.
Flabby arms are a common complaint among people who have lost a significant amount of weight. Low-hanging tissue that creates a bat wing appearance prevents many patients from wearing the clothing styles they want. In some cases, this excess skin causes painful irritation. Choosing arm lift surgery as a part of your post-weight loss contour can restore slimmer arms.
Sagging tissue along the chest is common for both men and women after losing weight. In women, drooping breasts can create an unattractive appearance. A breast lift is designed to reposition sagging breasts for a perkier and more youthful appearance. In men, sagging chest skin can displace the areola, robbing them of a masculine contour. Removing excess chest tissue can create a more defined chest.
A double chin can turn into excess submental skin following weight loss, and this lack of facial definition may not reflect the leaner contours you have achieved throughout the rest of your body. Excess neck skin is especially common in older patients who suffer from natural age-related facial laxity. A neck lift can recontour your neck and chin, which will add better facial definition and restore a leaner, younger-looking neck profile.
