Hello Rajiv,

Statistically, obesity is on the rise in our culture. If you have tackled your weight problem, you may have to consider cosmetic surgical intervention to address any excess or stretched skin.

Surgery To Remove Excess Skin After Weight Loss

If you've ever lost a great deal of weight, you may have realized some not-so-pleasant changes to your body. Losing weight can cause ripples and wrinkles in your skin, sagging body parts, and skin folds - just to name a few after effects. For some people, these cosmetic changes may seem like a small price to pay for losing weight and making their body healthier. For other people, however, the changes in their skin and other effects may be too much sometimes even causing physical problems. For those people, surgical intervention may be an option.

When you think of cosmetic surgery, you might only think of procedures such as face lifts and rhinoplasty. There are many other procedures that can be done to sculpt the body as well, and these procedures are often what those who have lost a lot of weight must have performed. One such surgery is abdominoplasty, which is commonly known as a tummy tuck. In this procedure, excess skin is removed and tightened in the stomach area. For patients who have lost weight and ended up with a large flap of skin overhanging their stomach, abdominoplasty can help by removing this excess stretched skin. The patient can then obtain a smoother, thinner appearance to their abdomen.

Another type of cosmetic surgery that is commonly performed is a breast lift. When a woman loses a massive amount of weight, she not only loses it in her stomach, thighs and buttocks. She will also lose weight in her breasts, which can cause them to become droopy. A breast lift can help to restore a more attractive appearance to a woman's breasts, by removing excess skin and tightening the muscles around the area. The nipple may need to be repositioned, and the surgeon can also change the way that the breast "drapes", to give it a more youthful and natural look.

A final type of cosmetic surgery that can be useful is liposuction. Liposuction is the removal of fat deposits under the skin by using a cannula which vacuums out the fat through a small incision. Liposuction can be useful to people who have lost most of the weight that they have wanted to lose, but are unable to lose fat from certain areas. The liposuction technique can be used to remove the fat in these areas, but should not be used to get rid of large amounts of fat all over the body.

Cosmetic surgery after weight loss can be a great tool to make patients who have endured losing weight feel even better about themselves. You've worked hard to lose the weight, now you can tune up your body for that perfect look.

If you want to know how I feel about this, click on my profile and read some of my anserws on the same question.I came back from Thailand 3 weeks ago. I had the full mummy makeover,and the tummy tuck and lipo were great, but the breasts were completely the ugliest things i had ever seen. I'm talking saggy below with implants under my chin, It was star wars freaky.So I had them redone the day I flew back to Australia (big mistake) and for the last 3 weeks have had nothing but pain, infected stitches, and no help from the company that sent me over there.If you want to get this done I ask you do one thing that I didn't. Organize post op care in your own country, because in Thailand they give you a bag of drugs and once you're out of the country you're on your own. NO surgeon will touch you, I was even turned away from a private hospital. The basic notion is you took the risk getting major surgery in a 3rd world country, this is what you get'.If I could do it all again I would save the extra money and get it done properly. It's not just you, it affects the whole family when mum can't get off the couch, mum can't drive the car, make the lunches, believe me it's a family affair!!Yes it's cheaper but I have breasts that will be scarred badly for life.Please choose wisely.Best of luck
