Some areas of fat are resistant to diet and exercise, making us appear less fit and toned than we actually are. In addition, with extreme weight loss, skin loses elasticity, often creating an unwanted saggy appearance.
Many of these issues can be surgically addressed through body contouring after weight loss. Board Certified Itasca Plastic Surgeon Dr. Bradley Ashpole specializes in several body contouring procedures. Body contouring procedures can create a more sculpted look by removing stubborn fat deposits with liposuction and/or surgical excision and removal of loose skin in problem areas such as the abdomen (tummy tuck), thighs, arms and flanks.
Plastic Surgery Chicago Patients: Good candidates for body contouring include (but are not limited to):
- Men or women experiencing loose skin or a less than desirable shape after massive weight loss.
- Men or women that wish to target trouble spots in the stomach, thighs, buttocks or arms that don’t seem to disappear with traditional diet or exercise.
- Women that have sagging skin or a lower abdominal “pouch” after pregnancy and childbirth.
