Following bariatric surgery or any method of rapid weight loss, it is common to have areas of loose, sagging, and unsightly skin. It is also common for deposits of fat to stubbornly remain, despite advanced weight loss techniques. For these reasons, many people look to body contouring procedures that can address excess skin and fat, and finalize weight loss results.
If you are unhappy with your appearance following significant weight loss, please contact George P. Chatson, MD today for an initial consultation. Appointments can be scheduled online or by calling our Andover, MA office at 978-528-1174 or our Nashua, NH office at 603-294-4189.
Enhancing Weight Loss Results
Post-weight loss body contouring options offered by Dr. Chatson include:
These options may be used alone but are most often combined for optimal results. What will best enhance your frame can be determined during your initial consultation with Dr. Chatson.
Liposuction and Abdominoplasty
While there are several treatments that can be used for body contouring following weight loss, liposuction and tummy tuck surgery are common in nearly all of these procedures. This is due to the specific benefits offered by these treatment options.
Abdominoplasty targets loose and sagging skin in the midsection – skin that is often unresponsive to diet and exercise. Tummy tuck surgery also tightens abdominal muscles that have become weakened through weight gain, helping restore a toned appearance while improving overall core strength.
Dr. Chatson utilizes power-assisted liposuction to help reduce surgical risks, and assist in more thorough removal of fatty tissue. Power-assisted liposuction is very effective at treating all areas of the body and may reduce the need for some lift procedures following weight loss.
