What Body Contouring Can Do for Your Body

What Body Contouring Can Do for Your Body

by Chelimar Miranda (SU)
There are a few rites of passage in life that we as women go through, some exciting, others joyful, some scary, and some that we just plain dread. Whether you can’t keep up with the balancing act of proper diet and exercise (it’s not easy), or your metabolism isn’t what it once was, body image is important to many women. Not losing stubborn fat can be distressing and cause our self-esteem to be lowered, as well as cause a lack of confidence in our bodies.

There are many things you can do to initially lose weight, but that alone might not get you the body image you envision. Many popular body contouring options do not guarantee someone’s problem areas go away overnight, however, a new technology has been introduced that has revolutionized body slimming in a safe and effective way.

Individuals who have experienced major weight loss often discover that their skin is sagging due to a lack of elasticity. The skin normally conforms to the body’s contour, but since their skin has been severely stretched for a long period of time, it is now unable to adjust to the reduced body size. After weight loss, body contouring can help improve the shape and tone of the tissue that supports fat and skin. It is also useful in removing sagging skin after surgically done weight reduction.

After a significant weight loss, the upper arms may appear loose; the breasts may sag; the skin in the abdominal area may fold around the sides; buttocks and thighs may appear like hanging pockets of skin. Aside from being unsightly, sagging skin can lead to several problems. For one, it could affect the person’s mobility. This condition could also have a negative effect on a person’s self-image.

What is Body Contouring?

Dramatic weight loss has many benefits, but after weight reduction surgery, or any substantial amount of weight loss, the skin and tissues often lack the elasticity to conform to the reduced body size. Following major weight loss, body contouring improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin and removes excess sagging fat and skin.

Benefits of Body Contouring:

Age, sun exposure, and genetics all determine how well the skin “bounces back” after significant weight loss. For many people, the skin does not completely conform to the body’s smaller shape, and it can become saggy and cumbersome. Many men and women find that their excess skin makes them appear overweight even if they’ve met their weight-loss goal, and the excess girth limits mobility even if they are now physically fit. Body contouring procedures will rid the body of excess skin and provide several other benefits:
  1. One procedure can target multiple body parts: Depending on the person and procedure, body contouring may be performed at the same time on multiple body parts to produce optimal results.
  2. Safer techniques: Body contouring procedures have been performed for decades, and the techniques are constantly improving. As with any surgery, there are risks associated with the procedure, but choosing an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon will allow you to receive the results you’ve always wanted.
  3. Results are long lasting: The results of body contouring procedures are permanent and provide superior results over less-invasive options. Body contouring procedures can remove several inches of skin and provide more dramatic results.
  4. Comfort: Without excess skin, the body not only appears firmer but also feels better. Even simple exercises like walking and jumping become easier and pain-free.
