Losing a significant amount of weight can be a struggle. But doing so is not only a well-deserved and fantastic achievement; it can also be a transformational experience like no other—both emotionally and physically. However, significant weight loss can also cause loose, inelastic skin that droops and sags, which can greatly diminish the joy, excitement, and pride of having achieved your preferred healthy weight. Thankfully, post-bariatric body contouring is a simple solution to resolving stubborn excess skin.
Here are the three most prominent reasons people such as yourself may seek out post-bariatric body contouring to achieve their ideal body further:
No More Excess Skin
First and foremost, the primary objective of any post-bariatric body contouring procedure is to get rid of the excess skin that has been causing you trouble since your weight loss. This sagging occurs because the inelasticity of the skin makes it unable to conform to the small shape of your body. Moreover, this sagging isn’t just an aesthetic bother; it can also be responsible for physical discomfort such as rashes, chafing, and other forms of irritation.
A Simple Recovery Period
Though you’ll likely need to take anywhere from one to three weeks off from work, this time will allow you to rest up and ensure that your body has all the energy it needs to recover as quickly as possible. Any strenuous activities should also be tabled for two to six weeks, but this time will fly by with proper hydration, nutrition, and sleep. Dr. Miller will have a more detailed and accurate recovery timeline after your initial consultations.
More Comfortable Living
Finally, once the excess skin is gone forever and you’ve adequately rested and recovered from the post-bariatric body contouring procedure, you’ll be able to return to your life, hopefully feeling better than ever before. With taught, elastic skin, your everyday activities could feel effortless, and you’ll surely be happier now that your weight loss can truly be shown off.
