Loose and bulky skin is not uncommon following significant weight loss. Nor are a few stubborn fat deposits that simply refuse to respond to your efforts. These things, combined or alone, can serve to obscure your weight loss efforts, making your body instead look asymmetrical and awkward – and they may not ever go away on their own. This is where post-weight loss body contouring comes in.

During tummy tuck surgery, abdominal muscles are pulled together and reattached. This serves serval purposes, including a reduction in low back pain. Separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) impact core strength and place a larger burden on the back. Studies have found that, by reattaching and firming these muscles during abdominoplasty, low back pain can be eliminated.
Love handles is the name given to those stubborn deposits of fat around the hips, lower back, and abdomen. A result of fat accumulation, love handles can make the midsection look uneven or bulky. They can interfere with clothing options, make certain types of activities uncomfortable, and result in emotional dissatisfaction with the body.
A casual glance around any public area can show that a softer midsection is fairly common in men, particularly with age. Of course, there is nothing inherently wrong with a bit of bulge around the belly and, if it doesn’t bother you, there may seem to be no reason to address it. No reason, that is, except avoiding a premature death.
