For people who are significantly overweight, losing weight is a considerable achievement. It’s something they should be proud of. Unfortunately, for many people with noticeable weight loss, loose skin left behind can leave them feeling unhappy with their appearance. For those living in North West England, weight loss body contouring in Manchester could be the answer.

What is Weight Loss Body Contouring?

When people lose a lot of weight, whether following a specific diet, exercise or after pregnancy, they often find their skin has lost its elasticity. As a result, it can be unsightly or embarrassing in appearance, be difficult to move or exercise, or lead to skin irritations and infections.

Weight loss body contouring addresses these problems through surgery that removes the excess skin and fat. A qualified surgeon lifts and tightens the skin (which can include buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs and arms). As a result, the underlying tissue support improves, leaving the body tighter and more toned. What’s covered in the procedures depends on individual needs and is decided in consultation with the surgeon.
