Am I a Good Candidate for Post Weight Loss Body Contouring?
You may want to consider body contouring if you’re unhappy with loose, sagging skin caused by significant weight loss. Patients should be close to their ideal weight before thinking about the procedure. Your surgeon may postpone body-contouring surgery until you’ve maintained a stable weight for a minimum of 6 months. PWL contouring can help you achieve your desired contours and give you the motivation to maintain a healthy weight.
The ideal candidate for the procedure is an otherwise healthy adult both physically and mentally. You should have realistic expectations about what the procedure can offer you as well as what to expect when it comes to post-surgical scars. As with any surgical procedure, non-smokers typically have the best outcomes.
What Results Will I See?*
Results from body contouring procedures after weight loss can vary dramatically from patient to patient. Patience is the rule with immediate improvement noticeable on the first postoperative day. Final results however usually take 3-6 months to be realized. An optimal outcome from most post-weight loss contouring procedures will occur as any post-surgical swelling subsides. Depending on your procedure, it can take several weeks to several months to fully realize your ideal outcome. Results from PWL body contouring are typically long-lasting with increased motivation for healthy lifestyle choices. Although you may have visible scarring, most patients say its a small price to pay for their newfound physique.
What is the Recovery Like?*
Like projected results, your recovery is dependent upon the extent of your procedure. Some men and women only need a week or two to recover, while others may need upwards of 4-6 weeks of downtime. You can typically expect your recovery to be equal to that of your most aggressive treatment. At the time of your initial consult, your skilled specialist will customize a recovery plan based on your specific procedure and lifestyle.
