How can body procedures improve contouring after weight loss? 

Losing a significant amount of weight can do wonders for your overall health, wellness, and confidence. However, your skin often struggles to adapt to swift weight loss. If you’ve lost weight but now struggle with loose and sagging skin, some treatments can help, including surgical lift procedures.  

Dr. Kasden begins by administering numbing medication to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. He then creates an incision to access the tissue beneath your skin’s surface. He carefully trims away excess skin and fat tissue to create a tighter, more toned body shape. Next, he carefully closes the incision to begin the healing process.  

Some of the more popular lift procedures include:

  • Arm lift
  • Brachioplasty (upper arm lift)
  • Butt lift
  • Thigh lift 
  • Upper back lift

A lower body lift combines multiple procedures to create improvements in the areas beneath your waist.    

How do some of the popular body procedures work? 

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is one of the most commonly requested body procedures. This treatment begins with removing fat cells from areas like your upper thighs or abdomen. Once that fat is prepared for transfer, it’s drawn into a syringe and injected into areas across your buttocks. 

A mommy makeover is also a popular option. This is a combination of treatments like a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to get rid of loose skin and extra fat, as well as tightens the underlying abdominal muscles, breast augmentation, and labiaplasty to create a more refined body contouring and address changes to the appearance of your labia after pregnancy and childbirth.   

Liposuction is an option that uses suction to remove fat from certain areas of your body, including:

  • Chin and neck
  • Lipo 360 (abdomen, flanks, back)
  • Bra fat
  • Waist and hips
  • Buttocks (banana roll)
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Arms
  • Knees
  • Calves and ankles
  • Mons Pubis

A monsplasty is a surgical procedure that removes fatty tissue and extra skin from your mons pubis (mound of tissue in front of your pubic bone). A panniculectomy is surgical removal of hanging skin that covers part of all of your genitals.  

How can I improve my recovery process after body procedures? 

In the days and weeks after your procedure, avoid strenuous activity and rest to gain a swift and successful recovery. If you’re a smoker, find a smoking cessation program that works for you, and make every effort to quit for good in the weeks leading up to your procedure. Smoking damages your circulatory system and complicates the healing process.
