Massive weight loss as a result of dieting, aggressive physical exercise or bariatric surgery, often leads to saggy skin and stubborn fat on various body parts. These chunks of loose skin often refuse to disappear or reshape to your new body contours, which can take away some of the joy experienced when losing weight, as you dreamt of that svelte figure for so long, only to have all the excitement crushed by these ugly pockets of saggy skin and fat.
Massive weight loss as a result of bariatric surgery using, gastric bypass, gastric banding or gastric balloon placement, results in contour deformities of various body areas. Body contouring consists of a series of surgical procedures designed to deal with this very problem. These procedures can help reshape the following body parts: Arms, Abdomen, Hips, Thighs, Chin/neck, Buttocks and Legs.
A candidate needs to meet certain medical criteria in order to qualify for a body contouring procedure. Mr Javaid will examine your general health, medications and discuss your expectations and scars before proceeding for the proposed procedures. Above all, the candidate needs to be realistic and resilient in terms of physical and mental health.
Some areas of the body are resistant to dieting and exercising. Liposuction can be used to remove fat from such areas. Non-smokers compared to smokers, heal faster post-surgery. Good skin elasticity also promotes better and quick healing. Visit the Liposuction page »
Saggy skin is quite prevalent in the upper arms. An arm lift also called brachioplasty or arm reduction is performed by making incisions behind the arm, from armpit to elbow. This procedure tightens the upper arms, giving them a smooth and firm shape. Visit the Arm Lift page »
Thighs are especially resilient to exercise and dieting. With the help of thigh lift, loose skin and excess fat around the thighs and groin are removed through careful incisions. This surgical technique may be followed by liposuction. Visit the Thigh Lift page »
The abdomen is the region most people are quite conscious about. A flat stomach improves the silhouette of the body. A tummy tuck also involves removing excess skin through incisions, resulting in a smooth and tight abdomen. Patients with excessive skin roles in the flanks, may benefit from Fleur-de-lis type abdominoplasty and patients having saggy buttocks may benefit from circumferential abdominoplasty to tighten the abdomen and uplift the buttocks simultaneously. Mr Javaid will guide you with the best option in your bindividual case after having examined you in detail. Visit the Tummy Tuck page »
This is also known as gluteoplasty. Excessive weight loss may lead to saggy skin in the back region, creating skin folds above waistline and sagging of the buttocks. A back and buttock lift not only removes the excess skin from this region, but also rejuvenates the overall appearance of buttocks and lower torso. Visit the Buttock Lift page »
The skin around the chin and neck is removed giving smoother skin and a youthful look by neck lift or full facelift which includes neck lift. Click here to visit the Facelift page » or Click here to visit the Neck Lift page »
