Post Weight Loss Body Contouring

Post Weight Loss Body Contouring

Post weight loss body contouring procedures are useful when massive weight loss from diet and exercise or having had weight loss surgery leaves individuals with excessive loose skin throughout their body.

Face, arms, chest, waist, buttocks, and thighs are the most common areas affected. Post weight loss body contouring procedures are designed to remove excess skin and contour the specific areas of concern. If combined, these procedures are lengthy and often require a 1-2 day hospital stay, but if done separately many of these procedures can be done on an outpatient basis.

At the time of your consultation you will address your goals and most often Dr. Lynam will recommend you start with surgery to address what bothers you the most, thus giving you a sense of accomplishment and control over what has been oftentimes a long and difficult journey. Often body contouring procedure every 3-6 months will be done until a patient has accomplished their goals.

As with all procedures, risks are involved with these procedures and should be discussed thoroughly with your surgeon. The most common problems after surgery relate to poor wound healing, infection, and poor scar formation. Your benefits include a higher self-confidence thanks to a significant reduction in the burdensome “floppy” skin – resulting in an improved contour, body image and enhanced self-confidence.

Dr. Lynam was professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. Most importantly, he is well credentialed and an expert plastic surgeon. I was able to tell him what I wanted done, and after examining me, he felt that he could certainly meet my expectations. Well, he exceeded them! I am so very pleased with my results. He did both surgeries at the same time and he has turned back the clock on my figure by 30 years. I was concerned about recovery from such extensive surgeries at my age, but all went well. His office staff is pleasant and professional, too~~especially his assistant, Brigitte. I made the right choice, and am very, very glad that I had these procedures done by Dr. Lynam.
