Often, individuals who lose a significant amount of weight are disappointed to discover they still have not attained their ideal body. Regardless of the reason their weight loss occurred (healthier lifestyle choices, bariatric surgery, having a baby, etc.), these individuals may find that they are left with loose excess skin that has lost its elasticity and/or damaged underlying musculature that cannot be toned. Once this happens, no amount of diet and exercise can get rid of the surplus skin or correct damaged muscles. In addition, localized fat deposits can become stuck underneath the skin, making them resistant to an active, healthy lifestyle.
The good news is that Dr. Paul W. Loewenstein, a compassionate body contouring plastic surgeon in Milwaukee, can help. He offers a range of body contouring cosmetic procedures to help individuals like you finally achieve the figure they deserve.
Due to major weight loss, breastfeeding or simply the natural aging process, the breasts may start to sag, hanging low on the chest wall. The breasts may also look flattened, like a pancake. In addition, the nipples can start to point toward the ground instead of straight ahead. Thankfully, breast lift, or mastopexy, can help fix these aesthetic concerns.
With breast lift surgery, Dr. Loewenstein eliminates any excess skin and reshapes the breast mound as he moves it to a higher, more youthful-looking position on the chest wall. He can also reposition the nipple so it is higher up and centered on the breast. The result is perkier breasts. For women who require additional volume to improve the look of flattened breasts, Dr. Loewenstein can include breast implants in the breast lift procedure.
Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, is designed to remove loose abdominal skin that is hanging off the body, as well as repair any severely damaged underlying tissue, such as supporting musculature. With tummy tuck surgery, the Milwaukee body contouring plastic surgeon can also include liposuction to remove unwanted fat from under the skin. Tummy tuck can give patients who have lost a massive amount of weight the flatter, firmer abdominal profile they have worked so hard to achieve.
Other Body Contouring, or Lifting, Procedures
Similar to the intention of tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Loewenstein can also perform body contouring, or lifting, cosmetic surgery procedures on other areas of the body. For instance, he can perform arm lift surgery, or brachioplasty, to eliminate loose excess skin from the upper-arm area and tighten the underlying tissues for a svelter contour throughout the upper arms.
He also provides other variations of body lift cosmetic surgery, including lower-body lift, thigh lift and buttock lift. With these body contouring procedures, he can eliminate unwanted sagging skin and stubborn fat and repair any greatly weakened supporting tissue structures throughout the area of your choice, for a more toned look.
Sometimes after large weight loss the buttock area takes on a flattened appearance. Dr. Loewenstein performs the procedure know as the “Brazilian Butt lift”, which involves injecting fat from areas where it is found in excess to fill out the flattened buttock.
