Body Contouring After Major Weight loss

Weight loss is a great achievement, but it can result in excess skin that remains stretched and loose. Body contouring procedures include face lifts, breast lifts, tummy tucks, arm lifts, and lower body and thigh lifts. These procedures remove excess skin and tighten underlying tissue to reveal the leaner body you worked hard to achieve.

Dr. Cohen works closely with patients to find the best treatment plan to suit their individual needs. Body contouring can sometimes be completed on multiple areas during one surgery, depending on the extent of treatment needed. It may also be done in several stages over time. Incisions are made in the treatment area, where fat and skin are removed to achieve the desired lift. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia.

The recovery for body contouring procedures will vary depending on the areas treated. Dr. Cohen and her team will follow you closely with a personalized care plan for your recovery and maximum results.
