Body Contouring at Plastic + Hand
The joy that major weight loss can bring can be offset by effects on skin and tissue that no longer have the elasticity to conform to the new body size.
Body contouring after major weight loss can help. Various procedures can be performed to remove excess sagging skin and fat while improving the shape of the underlying support tissue. Body contouring at Plastic + Hand is performed using general anesthesia in the comfort of our state-of-the-art Plastic + Hand Surgery Center.

What does body contouring involve?
Body contouring procedures may include:
- Arm lift: correct sagging of the upper arms
- Breast lift: correct sagging, flattened breasts
- Facelift: correct sagging of the mid-face, jowls and neck
- Lower body lifts: correct sagging of the abdomen, buttocks, inner and outer thighs

Who is the best candidate for body contouring?
In general, good body contouring candidates are healthy nonsmoking adults whose weight loss has stabilized, who have no medical conditions that could impair healing or increase risk of surgery, who have a positive outlook and realistic goals, and who are committed to leading a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and fitness.
What should I expect after body contouring?
While the results of body contouring following significant weight loss are visible almost immediately, it can take two years or more to see the final results. Visible scars are something you must accept to achieve a body contour that matches your new weight and proportion. The results of body contouring are long-lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness. However, most of your initial improvement should remain.
