For both men and women, weight loss helps to accomplish goals for living a healthier lifestyle. In some cases though, your new habits may not be quite enough to create the smooth, toned physique you were hoping for.  Body contouring after major weight loss is performed to improve the shape and tone of your underlying tissue and remove excess fat and skin. Sagging skin commonly develops around the abdomen, breast, face, neck, upper arms, buttocks, and thighs, causing your body to appear irregular and misshapen. To remedy this condition Dr. Markarian displays a special interest in a variety of different body contouring procedures – these include a tummy tuck, body lift, buttock lift, arm lift, thigh lift, and breast lift. A good candidate for these surgeries has undergone massive weight loss and has remained stable at his or her optimum weight loss

 The goals of body contouring after massive weight loss are to reshape the hips, abdomen, back, buttocks, flanks, arms, and thighs, to alleviate the emotional discomfort and rashes associated with excess skin, and to create a tighter, flattering and toned-looking physique. 

Cosmetic surgery after massive weight loss is performed under general anesthesia which means you will be asleep and feel nothing during surgery. Depending on the procedure, expect to stay overnight at a fully accredited surgical center, where a “private duty” nurse is available. The surgery itself generally takes several hours depending on the number of areas focused on during surgery. The procedure time will depend on the extent and nature of the treatment area.
