Body contouring is commonly performed on individuals who have recently undergone major weight loss and are looking to improve the appearance of their body, whether that be through a tummy tuck, thigh lift or arm lift. At Body by Motoki, Dr. David Motoki is trained to provide patients with these procedures to help them with their appearance goals. Today we are going to cover the three main benefits of body contouring and how it can help in your body image goals.
After an individual loses a significant amount of weight or ages, the skin tends to become saggy and less firm. With body contouring, you can obtain smooth and firm contours, providing the patient with a more youthful appearance.
After weight is lost, that loose skin can become an uncomfortable reminder of the excess weight you once carried. Large folds of excess skin are also susceptible to skin rashes, infections and irritation, which can potentially cause further health complications. Body contouring by Dr. Motoki can help reduce that risk and provide you with the comfort you deserve.
Weight loss has shown to improve physical aspects of the body as well as mental aspects. In several different studies, it has been shown that weight-loss surgery patients who have surgery to remove excess skin were more likely to keep the weight off compared to those who didn't have contouring procedures.
