10 Nov I Lost The Weight, Why Don’t I Look Like I Thought I Would?
You finally made it. So why now is breast reduction and tummy tuck at the top of your “to do” list? You’ve had the weight loss surgery; the number on the scale is amazing…so why don’t you look the way you thought you would? Do you think you need a breast reduction now, when you thought your breasts would be back to their perky selves? Did you think your tummy would be flat and not require a tummy tuck?
Well, simply said, the fast weight loss bariatric surgery affords, is too fast for the elasticity of the skin to respond. Additionally, age, poor nutrition, dehydration, excessive sun exposure and smoking can all affect the elasticity of the skin.
The good news is it’s not a done deal. Body contouring surgery, also known as a body lift, can give you the ultimate body that you are looking for. When your weight has become stable you can then move forward with the body lift. But, enter into this phase of body rejuvenation knowing that it is not a walk in the park.
Additionally, there are other options that can help you achieve the ultimate results, such as liposuction, a tummy tuck, and breast lift. These procedures, one or all, can bring dramatic results, but with each surgery there are risks. Those risks need to be weighed and addressed with your plastic surgeon.
