It is not uncommon for someone to lose a significant amount of weight but still struggle with the appearance of a few stubborn body parts. Even beyond small, stubborn fat deposits, you might also struggle with excess or stretched-out skin on the abdomen, upper arms, thighs or other parts of the body. In a case like this, your cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Trenton C. Jones, M.D., might recommend a body contouring procedure.
Many people who are interested in body contouring might also be interested in an arm or thigh lift to correct additional areas with sagging skin. This might also include some minor liposuction or liposculpture to improve the overall shape of the arms and legs.
Your personal preferences and the amount of weight you’ve lost will determine the degree of body contouring that the surgeon recommends. This might also include having another procedure performed at the same time to address multiple problem spots in one single session.
In many cases, body contouring can also be performed in conjunction with another procedure such as a breast lift. This is a common option because breasts often experience significant changes along with any change in body composition.
If you’ve lost a significant amount of weight and you’re interested in addressing a few trouble spots, you should call Cascade Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa at 801-762-8989 to see if you’re a good candidate for a body contouring procedure in Utah County, Utah.
