If you recently lost a significant amount of weight – whether through weight loss surgery or diet and exercise – you may be excited about reaching your goals, but disappointed with the way your body looks. Loose, hanging skin and excess tissue are common problems after weight loss. Some patients also notice stubborn pockets of fat in certain areas of their body that remain completely unaffected by exercise.
Body contouring can help you solve these problems and more, putting the finishing touches on an appearance you have worked hard to achieve.
Some of the most common body contouring procedures Dr. Lefkovits performs include:
- Liposuction – Removes localized deposits of fat, and improves contours in treated area.
- Tummy tuck – Removes excess skin in the abdominal region, and tightens loose underlying muscles.
- Thigh lift – Removes excess skin in the thigh area.
Dr. Lefkovits may recommend combining procedures (such as liposuction and a tummy tuck) in order to achieve the best possible results.
Anyone facing cosmetic issues after weight loss is potentially an excellent candidate for body contouring. As long as you have reached a stable weight and are in good general health, you can take advantage of the state-of-the-art techniques perfected by Dr. Lefkovits to help you look and feel better.
