Many people achieve the huge success of losing significant body weight, whether through their own means or through surgery. However, once significant weight has been lost, some people find their bodies still do not look as they had expected.

After major weight loss surgery or even significant weight loss over time, your skin and tissue may no longer have the same elasticity as before. The skin may be looser and begin to sag, meaning patients still feel self-conscious and unhappy with their image. Weight loss body contouring in Manchester and in many regions helps ensure patients can enjoy their weight loss and be proud of their new image.

Weight loss body contouring is a range of different procedures carried out by an experienced plastic surgeon. Mr Irfan Khan is a plastic surgeon Manchester patients can choose to visit after weight loss. In many instances weight loss body contouring in Manchester is an expectation after other weight loss surgeries and patients are ready beforehand. Before any patient can have this kind of surgery their weight must be stable.

What Happens During Body Contouring Surgery?

Your plastic surgeon will work with you to decide which areas of the body need contouring. This will vary from patient to patient. Surgeons such as Mr Khan commonly recommend:

  • Breast augmentation (usually uplift surgery)
  • Thigh lift
  • Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
  • Brachioplasty (arm reduction)

Liposuction is also an option for some patients, but as with all surgeries, it is not suitable for everyone. All surgeries have risks and patients have the opportunity to discuss these risks before agreeing to any procedure.

Recovery and Aftercare

Dependent on the surgeries you have, the aftercare and recovery will differ. Your surgeon and surgical team will ensure you have all the information you need to care for any wounds. You will also be given clear guidelines on pain relief medication and activities to avoid. The results may be visible immediately but like with most major procedures it may take a few months for full results to be visible.
