With swim suit season practically around the corner, many individual’s concern is that now may be good time to take care of “winter weight”.

Although body contouring is the reshaping of the body to achieve a more attractive appearance, a patient’s concerns may be related to genetic fat distribution or changes related to pregnancy or following significant weight loss.

It is important to understand that body contouring surgery is not a weight loss surgery but rather a shaping procedure. Under most circumstances, an appropriate candidate should be close to their ideal weight.

North Dallas Plastic Surgery for Body Lift Treatment

North Dallas Plastic Surgery for Body Lift Treatment

If you have recently lost a large amount of weight, you may want to consider body lift surgery.

While a body lift treatment isn’t a substitute for removing fat (that can be surgically done by liposuction), it is usually done on the patient who has recently lost a large amount of weight but it may be appropriate for anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight in the past.

The areas of focus might include the abdomen (in front or continuing to the sides and into the lower back area), the groin which might have some sagging skin, as well as the thigh and the buttocks, too. As you can see, a body-lift is not a “routine” procedure and must be individualized to meet a patient’s goals.

Liposuction in Dallas, Allen, and Plano – What’s New?

Liposuction in the Dallas, Allen, And Plano Area - What's New?

Traditional liposuction is the technique of vacuuming excess fat. Over the recent years a variety of devices have been introduced and used –  and by now many have been discarded. Originally the procedure was done in a ‘dry’ way, then came a ‘wet’ procedure. Even the device used during a liposuction has changed over the years.

At North Dallas Plastic Surgery (NDPS) we believe a well-educated patient can make the best decision on what is the best cosmetic procedure. We are a unique practice, and here are a couple of reasons why:

  • Consultation by the surgeon to provide a complete evaluation, recommendation, and thorough explanation of proposed treatment.
  • It is of utmost importance to understand whether you are a good candidate for liposuction alone or whether you would be better served by a tummy tuck.

Liposuction is a contouring procedure and not a weight loss method. At our practice, the type of anesthesia, the
surgical facility, and type of liposuction used are individualized for each specific patient.

Additional Surguries Needed after Weight Loss

The New York Time had an article earlier this month about those who, after bariatric surgery, have sought additional plastic surgery treatments to help with their new appearance.

We find this to be an interesting and realistic article – and bariatric surgery has certainly benefited many patients. From the perspective of a plastic surgeon, we see many patients in Dallas and Allen, TX, who have had bariatric surgery with massive weight loss, but we also see those who have accomplished the same from changes in diet and more exercise.

Regardless of the method of weight loss, except for the very young patients, excess skin of the trunk, breasts, and extremities is the usual result: obesity causes a loss of elasticity of the skin, causing an inability to shrink after the fat is gone. The benefit of a consultation with a plastic surgeon is to allow the weight loss patient to make an informed decision about skin tailoring surgery. The reality  is that this surgery can be expensive, but cost is only one of several factors to consider when making a decision about surgery.

What wasn’t mentioned in the article was the option of living with the excess skin – a choice that is up to the individual patient. Also it is important to understand that this type of reconstructive surgery usually involves multiple procedures to be able to obtain the optimal results.
