Surgical body contouring, sometimes referred to as skin surgery, removes the excess sagging fat and skin and can improve the shape and tone of the underlying tissue. It reshapes the body giving it a more normal appearance with smoother contours. This is usually the final phase in the weight loss experience. Typical areas treated include the abdomen, back, thighs, buttocks and arms.
Before embarking on such surgeries, individuals must ensure that they have reached the plateau in their weight loss and that their weight is stable. They must be healthy with no major medical issues and non-smokers. During the consultation process, Dr. Turner will discuss your expectations and review the various procedures possible, as well their outcomes and risks, to determine if any of these procedures are an option for you.
