Here's the scenario: you have lost A LOT of weight and are extremely proud of yourself, which you definitely should be.
The tricky part is that you still have excess skin left, which is a reminder of the “heavier” version of you.
Fortunately, there are several plastic surgery procedures that can remove this extra skin and dramatically improve the overall shape of your body, as well as your confidence. These procedures include body contouring (body lift), tummy tuck and breast lift.
Dr. Michael Olding, MD, the director of the Cosmetic Surgery Center at GW Medical Faculty Associates and the chief of Plastic Surgery at George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences, discusses if you are a good candidate for plastic surgery after weight loss, as well as the risks and benefits with each procedure.
