What is Body Contouring?
Extra weight can cause damage to the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin over time. Significant weight loss, whether that be from diet and exercise, post-pregnancy, genetics or other reasons, often results in saggy skin due to the damage of the collagen and elastin fibers.
Body contouring, or body sculpting, is a surgical procedure that aims to reshape an area of the body and improve the appearance of the skin and tissue after major weight loss. Body contouring procedures work to:
- Get rid of extra skin
- Eliminate excess body fat
- Reshape or contour the area
