Plastic surgery Houston is available for men and women that have dedicated themselves to a healthy lifestyle and have lost a lot of weight. They can turn to plastic surgery to remove excess skin, firm trouble areas, and lift sagging skin resulting from losing weight. A tummy tuck, breast lift, and fully body lift are all part of body contouring and are three procedures that may be needed after extreme weight loss.
A tummy tuck can help those that are fit and in shape but are having trouble getting rid of fat in the abdomen. Weak abdomen muscles may be to blame but the problem can be resolved by a Houston plastic surgeon. This procedure lasts two to five hours and patients are given pain medications for a few days after. Many patients are able to go home the same day as the procedure, while others stay overnight in a hospital or outpatient surgical facility.
Women that have lost weight may notice their breasts are starting to sag due to the skin losing its elasticity. Breast lifts are a popular procedure to remove excess skin and reshape the breast so it is firmer. Liposuction can also be used by both men and women to remove stubborn fat in the chest, arms, abdomen, thighs, and other areas.
Full body lifts are offered to patients after extreme weight loss and have excess skin on their back, face, thighs, trunk, and breasts. Scarring does occur and varies depending on how much skin is removed. Men and women that have only a small amount of loose skin are not recommended to use this procedure since it may not be worth the scarring.
Bariatric surgery Houston is available for the severely and morbidly obese that are suffering from obesity related medical problems. This surgery is used as a tool to start making better lifestyle decisions regarding diet and exercise. In order for this surgery to be successful, a patient has to fully commit to a healthy lifestyle and have a life long relationship with their surgeon.
