What Is Body Contouring?
After losing a considerable amount of weight, you may find that you have unwanted excess skin hanging on areas of your body and making it look undesirable. Many people complain of irritation due to skin-on-skin chafing, as well as awkward looks as they try to hide their floppy arms or belly. You’ve taken a number of positive steps in losing weight, and body contouring can make your figure look like new by removing this extra skin.
Benefits of Body Contouring
In addition to improving your figure, body contouring can help alleviate discomfort from clothing or chafing. Both men and women report the following benefits as a result of body contouring:
- Their self-esteem improves.
- Their self-confidence is greater.
- They find it easier to talk to and approach people.

How Is Body Contouring Performed?
Body contouring can be done in a single session, or in multiple steps for safety reasons. Often, it requires large incisions which will depend on the area being treated and lifted. As it can take some people years to lose the weight, so too will it take time for your body’s natural structure to adjust to the new “you” and for your skin’s elasticity to improve.
Body Contouring Recovery
After the surgery, you may be advised to wear specific kinds of compression garments or take steps to deal with swelling or bruising that may accompany the procedure. Some scarring is to be expected, but these will fade over time and with proper care. Be sure to follow the specific instructions you are given after your surgery takes place.
