The most important thing about a body-contouring procedure after major weight loss is personalizing the procedure. Everyone’s body is different and reacts to weight loss differently. People have different problem areas, and the quality of their skin is different. All of these factors need to be considered before surgery.

Some people tend to accumulate a lot of fat in their upper arms but not in their legs. That means that there is a good chance that they will have excess skin and fat around their upper arms after they have lost a significant amount of weight. They will likely require an arm lift but may not need a thigh lift.

If you have lost a significant amount of weight and are in need of personalized surgical body contouring, contact our office today to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Louis Strock.
