Weight gain stretches the skin beyond its limit to accommodate the buildup of fat in the body. When fat is eliminated through a weight loss program or surgery, lax skin is left hanging from a someone’s arms, belly, back, and thighs. The problem with loose skin is that no amount of dieting and exercise can get rid of them, so some people opt to have them cosmetically removed.
Although a non-surgical option like Ultherapy can reduce loose skin, it can’t completely address huge amounts of it. Only a skin removal surgery from an experienced plastic surgeon can get the job done and give the patient the body contour they want.
If you’re interested in getting rid of your loose skin, then here are cosmetic options for you to consider. Depending on the severity of your loose skin, your plastic surgeon may recommend two or more of these procedures to get the results that you want..
A thigh lift a procedure that people typically get to have firmer and more slender legs, but it’s also effective for removing the extra skin and fat around the thighs.
By adding volume to the buttocks, the skin is stretched to accommodate the amount of transferred fat or the inserted size of butt implants. This results to smoother skin and rounder buttocks.
A tummy tuck doesn’t only get rid of excess skin and reduce fat around the tummy, but it also improves the condition of your abdominal muscles as well, making them tighter and more toned.
A breast lift removes the excess skin and reshapes the breasts to improve their symmetry and lift them for a better contour. If you want to add volume and size to your breasts with implants, a breast augmentation can be worked into the procedure to add to the improvements of a breast lift.
This procedure involves incisions made along the underside of your arm to remove the fat and loose skin in that area. After an arm lift, your arms will look firmer and shapelier.
BodyTite and FaceTite are procedures similar to liposuction—but it uses radiofrequency energy instead, and it’s minimally invasive. It destroys the fat on administered areas, removes loose skin, and stimulates collagen production. BodyTite and FaceTite devices are specially designed to treat sagging skin in the jowls, jawline, neck, upper arms, back, abdomen, and thighs.
A facelift pulls loose skin and lifts underlying fat and muscles to reposition them to make beautiful and youthful-looking facial contours. It’s great for addresses sagging skin in the neck and jawline areas.
