What is Body Contouring after a Massive Weight Loss?

Body Contouring following massive weight loss is a term that can include multiple procedures designed to remove loose excess sagging skin and improve the overall shape and contour of your body. Whether you have lost significant weight through diet and exercise, or through bariatric surgery, you should be proud of your accomplishment and hard work! Unfortunately, losing a significant amount of weight can leave you with loose, deflated, sagging skin that can detract from your end result. Double Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Niki Christopoulos MD, FACS  will guide through you a thorough evaluation to determine which procedure or series of procedures is best for you. She will recommend the safest and most effective way to improve your overall contours and leave you with the confidence and body you deserve.
