Finalize Your Weight-Loss Transformation by Saying Goodbye to Excess Skin

After celebration-worthy weight loss transformations, men and women are often left with large amounts of excess skin that hang and hide their hard work.

From liposuction treatments to eliminate the remaining pockets of fat to skin removal surgeries to lifting procedures, body contouring after weight loss can help sculpt and define your contours.

What Is Body Contouring After Weight Loss?

Body contouring procedures are often performed for men and women who have lost significant weight (usually over 100 pounds). With that type of weight loss, men’s and women’s skin cannot contract to the new, slimmer contours, and individuals are left with unsightly and uncomfortable skin and underlying tissue.

A collection of body, breast, and face contouring procedures can be performed to eliminate the excess and accentuate your weight loss.

What Are the Benefits of Body Contouring Post-Massive Weight Loss?

Men and women choose body contouring procedures to:

  • Sculpt body contours by eliminating stubborn pockets of fat
  • Tighten and trim loose, hanging skin
  • Reduce chafing and rashes caused by excess skin
  • Restore healthier and youthful-looking contours
  • Define their silhouettes
  • Highlight their curves

Is Body Contouring Right for Me?

Men and women considering body contouring procedures have excess skin and fat that are distorting their body shape. Candidates for body contouring should be at or near their goal weight, in good overall health, and non-smokers with realistic expectations for their results.

Dr. Sadeghi will examine your body contours and discuss your medical history during your consultation to determine if you are the right candidate for body contouring.

What Can Body Contouring After Weight Loss Include?

Liposuction

Liposuction removes stubborn fat from the body, including in the abdomen, hips, lower back, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves, ankles, breasts, arms, and neck.

This treatment has many variations; however, the overall goal is the same across the board: to slim and sculpt the body.

During traditional liposuction, small incisions are made, and a cannula (hollow tube) is inserted to break up and suction out unwanted fat cells.

Lipo360

Liposuction 360 (Lipo360) offers total abdominal body contouring as it performs liposuction around the entire circumference of the midsection (lower abdomen, waist, hips, lower back).

VASERlipo®

VASERlipo® uses ultrasound technology to disrupt the fat prior to suctioning. This allows for the easier removal of the fat cells and results in less swelling, pain, and downtime.

High Definition Liposuction

Hi-def liposuction uses precise movements and tools to remove smaller sections of fat. This technique is performed to create more defined and natural body contours, such as a six-pack.

Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL)

Power-assisted liposuction replaces the standard cannula with a motorized cannula that vibrates to disrupt the fat cells. This allows for more comfortable and easier removal.

BodyTite®

BodyTite® is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to remodel tissues, including unwanted fat cells. This treatment results in slimmer, more sculpted contours.

Outstanding care. Beautiful results.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery offers significant contouring of the lower and upper abdomen. This treatment removes excess skin and fat and tightens underlying abdominal muscles to restore a firmer and more sculpted midsection.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift addresses loose skin and fat on the inner or outer thighs. This surgery tightens and tones the upper thighs and helps eliminate the uncomfortable rubbing of the legs.

Arm Lift

Much like a thigh lift, an arm lift targets excess skin and fat in the upper arms and can help eliminate the “batwing” appearance.

Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery is performed to lift and tighten sagging breasts. While some breast ptosis (sagging) is expected with age, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, it can be intensified by significant weight loss.

Facelift

While not always as pronounced, massive weight loss can have a significant impact on your facial contours. A facelift after weight loss can trim excess skin and reposition facial tissues to restore a tighter and more youthful face and neck contour.

How Much Does Body Contouring After Weight Loss Cost in New Orleans, LA?

The cost of your body contouring after weight loss will vary depending on the techniques being performed and the extent of correction needed. Additional cost factors, such as anesthesia, facility, operating room, and surgeon’s fees, will also impact the total cost of your body contouring treatment.

Dr. Sadeghi will provide you with an accurate cost estimate during your consultation once he has developed a surgical plan. Financing options are available.

How Long Is the Recovery After Body Contouring?

The length of your recovery period will again vary depending on the body contouring treatments you underwent. While non-surgical body contouring with BodyTite® requires no downtime, surgical procedures like tummy tuck surgery, thigh lift surgery, and arm lift surgery will result in up to a few weeks of downtime.

Most patients can return to work and their normal activities within one to two weeks; however, strenuous activity should be avoided for at least six weeks.

Dr. Sadeghi will provide you with recovery instructions that pertain to your particular treatment plan.

Will My Body Contouring Results Be Permanent?

Body contouring results are intended to be long lasting or permanent. Additional weight fluctuations and events like pregnancy will impact your results; however, it will not negate them.

To ensure lasting, quality results, maintain a stable weight with a healthy diet and a proper exercise program.
