    Weight loss body contouring (Surgery after weight loss)

    Body-Contouring Cosmetic Surgery in Delhi after Significant Weight Loss 

    Losing a large amount of weight (100 pounds or more) as a result of weight loss surgery or through diet and exercise is a major accomplishment that will enhance your health, your outlook on life, and your appearance.

    Many people who have achieved great weight loss can be left with large amounts of heavy, loose folds of skin around the abdomen, arms, thighs, breasts, buttocks and face. Skin can sag and lose elasticity as a result of being stretched for a long period of time. After significant weight loss, the skin often fails to shrink back to its former size and shape.

    Problems of excess skin

    Excess skin can make getting dressed a chore, limit mobility, and cause hygiene and medical problems. Chronic skin-on-skin contact can result in rashes and other sores that can lead to infection. In addition, excess skin can be a cosmetic issue. People who have lost a large amount of weight often want their bodies to reflect the new, more positive image they have of themselves. Many times, the only way to remove excess skin left after extensive weight loss is through body-contouring plastic surgery.

    Is body-contouring surgery right for me?

    The best outcomes from contouring surgery are achieved when these important criteria are met:

    Weight trend: For optimal results, body contouring should not be done for approximately two years following the start of any massive weight loss program. This time allows the skin to shrink as much as possible and your nutrition to be stabilized.

    Overall good health:

    People in poor health or having medical disease like diabetes or hypertension are not good candidates for body-contouring Cosmetic procedures in Delhi.


    You must be on a healthy diet? Problems such as protein and iron deficiencies can interfere with healing after Cosmetic Surgery in Delhi.

    Smoking history:

    Smoking slows down the healing process and increases the risk during and after surgery. You must quit smoking 6 weeks prior to surgery.

    Psychological status:

    You must be psychologically prepared for Contouring procedures?


    you must have realistic expectations with the procedure. Body contouring Cosmetic Surgery in Delhi will lead to marked improvements in your shape, but it is impossible to restore the skin or body to what it would have been without the weight gain. Even after body-contouring surgery, skin continues to sag over time as part of the normal aging process.

    Risks and side effects of surgery

    Most body-contouring Cosmetic Procedures in Delhi involve making an incision in the least obvious part of the area to be trimmed, removing excess skin, and suturing the area with fine stitches to minimize scarring. With these types of procedures, scarring is unavoidable.
