Surgical Treatments Are Often an Option for Reducing Excess Skin
Skin is a living organ — in fact, it is the largest organ in the body. When you gain weight, your skin will stretch to adapt to the extra mass, but over time it will lose its elasticity. When you lose weight rapidly, the skin that once held the fat does not have time bounce back and adhere to your new shape. This means that often when people lose a lot of weight they end up with excess skin. Boulder Plastic Surgery is able to provide reconstructive surgery to reduce excess skin and help you achieve your desired body type.
Losing weight, staying fit, and a maintaining a healthy diet are the best ways that people can take better care of themselves. Losing weight can entail not only fat loss, but sometimes you can also lose muscle mass if you are not exercising properly as you decrease your calorie intake. This can result in flabby body areas and excess skin. Exercise and proper nutrition can help tighten this excess skin, but when it exceeds more than a little extra flab medical procedures may be necessary to help correct the problem. Excess skin can not only cause an undesirable look, but it can also be uncomfortable.
Men have a tendency to lose weight faster than women, which increases the chances of excess skin. Plastic surgery can tighten and extract the unwanted skin in order to help you attain your desired body shape. Sagging skin may appear in multiple areas of the body, including the arms, stomach, and legs. Any patients considering surgical procedures to remove excess skin also must be able to commit to a healthy lifestyle, including diet, exercise, and good skin care, in order to obtain the desired results. Your surgeon will discuss all important information prior to surgery as well as post-surgical care and a recovery regimen.
