Losing a lot of weight is a significant achievement. Losing weight and sticking to it takes a lot of focus, dedication, and a strong desire to want to accomplish your weight loss goal. However, if you have lost a lot of weight, you probably realize by now that this does not automatically mean that you end up looking like the models you see on the covers of magazines. After weight loss, it is probable that you have a lot of excess skin, especially around your midsection, breasts, and arms. Hanging skin after weight loss is due to your skin's inability to completely contract. Once you have lost weight, it is difficult if not impossible, for your skin to shrink back to your former size.
The skin's inability to recoil completely and pockets of fat that are resistant to weight loss are several reasons why so many people take advantage of reconstructive plastic surgeries after major weight loss. Body contouring plastic surgeries after major weight loss are designed to help remove excess skin, tighten the affected area, and make your clothes fit better. Often, plastic surgery after weight loss will allow you to engage in your favorite activities without feeling uncomfortable because of excess skin or excess flab.
The decision to undergo these reconstructive plastic surgery procedures after major weight loss should not be made lightly. These "nips and tucks" are in fact serious surgical procedures. For this reason, you should not leave your plastic surgery up to just anybody. You want to have your plastic surgery procedures performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon who has the skills and expertise needed to deliver fantastic results. You want a plastic surgeon with specific training when it comes to the body contouring procedure that you are going to have done.
