What is Body Contour Surgery?
Surgical body contouring following major weight loss removes excess sagging fat and skin while improving the shape of the underlying support tissue. The complete body contouring process includes liposuction, tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, and other procedures as necessary on a case by case basis. The result is a more normal appearance with smoother contours.
What is the recovery time?
During your recovery from body contouring surgery, dressings or bandages will be applied to your incisions following the procedure. Small, thin tubes may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect. You may be instructed to avoid bending, straining or lifting for several days.
