Losing a significant amount of weight has quite a few benefits. Unfortunately, dramatic weight loss can lead to sagging skin. If you lose a significant amount of weight due to surgery or lifestyle changes, your skin may not have enough elasticity to conform to your current body size. This is where body contouring procedures can help. They can remove excess fat and sagging skin and enhance the shape of underlying tissues. The result is a more toned appearance with smoother contours. If you are a New Orleans resident who is looking to improve your body aesthetics, you should consider your body contouring treatment options.
After you have gone through your consultation and received instructions, the actual procedure is designed to be quite simple for your with your comfort and safely in mind. You’ll be given some form of anesthesia to ensure that you are numb but partially awake. We will create a customized procedure for you based on your wants and needs.
The tummy tuck is a popular procedure for those requiring body contouring after pregnancy or extreme weight fluctuations. These conditions can lead to remaining skin and muscles on the abdomen becoming overly stretched and sagging. The abdominal area is notoriously unresponsive to changes in diet and exercise for many people.
Medically known as an abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck procedure helps to remove loose and excess skin and fat, as it tightens your abdominal wall muscles. After this procedure, you will not have any remaining excess skin. Your stomach will be tighter, flatter, and more toned. The tummy tuck procedure should not be considered as a weight loss procedure. Rather, it is a body contouring procedure that is often performed after a person has lost a lot of weight.
