Body Contouring After Weight Loss is a big part of Dr. Avi Islur’s cosmetic practice. Losing weight (at any age) is a lot of work! Sometimes, after all that hard work to lose the weight, we are left with unwanted side effects such as hanging skin and stretchmarks.

What Can Body Contouring After Weight Loss Do For You?

Body Contouring After Weight Loss can dramatically improve your appearance. You worked very hard to lose the weight, now it’s time to enjoy it.

Significant weight loss through diet and exercise or following bariatric surgery (gastric bypass or lap-banding surgery) may result in loose and excessive skin which hides the results obtained by your weight loss.

Following at least 6 months of stable weight, excess skin and loose tissue can be removed through a variety of surgeries:

  • Surgeries are usually staged over several months to a year with multiple surgeries combined at the same time.
  • Liposuction maybe required to enhance and improve appearance.
  • Usually performed on a outpatient basis but may require admission to hospital.
  • Surgery is performed under general anesthesia in 3 to 5 hours.

Areas of the body are addressed through a variety of surgeries including:

Your Body Contouring After Weight Loss surgery will be custom tailored to your unique needs, individual results and recovery instructions may vary.

Panniculectomy Surgery

A panniculectomy can remove your unwanted, overhanging abdomen. A panniculectomy does not include a change in the belly button or pulling up of the pubic area.

The scar is similar to a standard tummy tuck, the incision lines are located at the junction of the pubic area and abdomen and extends laterally along the thigh and abdomen.

Note the significant difference between a panniculectomy and a tummy tuck on the illustrations below:

A panniculectomy can effectively eliminate rashes, ulcerations, moisture and hygiene issues but does not include cosmetic contouring. This may be an option for you if you are considering correcting the issues mentioned above, but a panniculectomy is not the right fit if you are interested in further cosmetic contouring.

This procedure can be performed alone and may be covered by provincial health care plans.
