If you have successfully lost a large amount of weight but are frustrated by loose, sagging skin around your abdominal and thigh areas, you’re not alone. Excess skin can affect your self-confidence, or make finding clothes difficult. Body contouring may help you gain your confidence back.


What is body contouring?

Surgical body contouring removes excess, sagging skin and fat and improves the contour of the body following major weight loss. Due to the decrease in elasticity (or ability to “bounce back”), this excess tissue will not go away with continued diet or exercise.

Body contouring surgery is also called a “body lift” procedure and may include these areas:

  • Abdominal area (locally or extending around the sides and into the lower back area)
  • Buttocks
  • Thigh area (inner, outer, back of or around the thigh)


Because there are many factors to think about — such as your anatomy, weight loss history and multiple procedures available — you should talk with our plastic surgeons about your goals. We can help you complete your weight loss journey.
