Excess Skin Removal
Excess, loose or sagging skin can be one of the most frustrating results of weight loss. However, here at UK Aesthetic we have a number of surgical treatments which can be used to help remove and improve the appearance of sagging skin on various areas of the body.
What is Excess Skin?
After weight loss there may be areas of your body which have excess skin. This is sagging, loose, skin which is impossible to tighten or improve the appearance of via conventional exercise. This is extremely common and can be aesthetically displeasing. Especially following what has likely been months of hard work to lose the weight in the first place.
Excess Skin Removal Treatments
Being able to invest in excess skin removal can improve the final appearance of your body following weight loss. There are a number of procedures available depending on the area of the body where you are experiencing sagging skin. You may wish to combine some of these surgeries, as well as include liposuction in order to remove any stubborn fat.
Excess skin removal in the arm area is typically known as an arm lift (or brachioplasty). It aims to remove sagging skin and excess fat typically in the underarm area. You may wish to combine this procedure with liposuction; doing so can help to remove a larger volume of fat from the area.
Bum or Thigh Lift
Improving the appearance of excess skin in the lower body can often mean seeking a bum or thigh lift. This will improve the contour of the buttocks and thigh area, as again it aims to remove excess skin and stubborn fat pockets from the area.
A tummy tuck removes excess skin in the stomach area. This can come in a variety of forms; a partial or full tummy tuck, the mini tummy tuck, as well as the mummy makeover. Expectations and the desired outcome will be discussed during the consultation process and this should help you reach a decision.
The combined name for all of these treatments is body contouring. And if you are experiencing excess saggy skin in multiple areas of your body, then you may want to consider a combination of the above treatments to achieve the right body contour. Your desired outcome and expectations will be considered when making this decision.
