Body Lift after Weight Loss in Baltimore

Following weight reduction surgery, or any substantial amount of weight loss, skin and underlying tissues often lose elasticity and the ability to “shrink” back to your reduced body size. As a result, this skin that has been severely stretched is now unsupported. Upper arms may appear to sag, breasts may flatten, and the butt may lose its firmness. Some weight loss patients also notice problems with their abdominal area and extra pockets of skin in many areas of the body.

What Is Body Contouring?

Body contouring improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue. Ultimately this tissue works to support fat and skin giving your body a firmer appearance. Body contouring procedures also help to reduce excess sagging fat and skin. Procedures used during body contouring include:

I currently live in Baltimore, and I am wondering if I am a good candidate for Body Contouring?

Most patients considering body contouring have experienced drastic weight loss. If you have sagging extra skin, or pockets from weight loss, this procedure can may benefit you. Before you decide to undergo body contouring, however, there are a few important things to consider. If you hope to lose more weight, you may want to wait for your body contouring procedure as new problem areas may develop. Ultimately, it is important to be committed to leading a healthy lifestyle including proper nutrition and fitness after the procedure. If you are hoping to enjoy your slimmer body, and are content and motivated to maintain your current weight, body contouring may benefit you. Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Birely can assess your overall health and eligibility for the operation.

In Bel Air, Patients Experience the Results of Body Contouring

The results of body contouring following aggressive weight loss are usually immediately visible. However, it may take a couple of months to see the final results of all the recommended body contouring procedures to fully develop. Minimal thin scars will remain, but the overall results are frequently long lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness and when done by an experienced Plastic Surgeon like Dr. Brent Birely.

How Long is Recovery After a Body Contouring Procedure?

After your body contouring procedure, you will wear dressings or bandages on the treated areas. Because body contouring varies greatly from individual to individual, your recovery time will depend on your individual procedure. Your incisions will be supported with bandages or dressings. Dr. Birely will advise you on incision care, medication, and activity levels after you procedure. Some patients may also be given a garment to suppress swelling. You may experience swelling or bruising for a few days after surgery. Full results and complete healing can take up to a few months.
