If you recently lost a significant amount of weight, you may be excited to have finally reached your goal, but disappointed in the way your body looks. After major weight loss, many people are left with loose, stretched skin that cannot conform to their new body size. If you are experiencing this problem, body contouring in Knoxville may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Body contouring can address the following post-weight-loss problems and more:
- Sagging skin in the upper arms
- Flatter breasts that hang with nipples pointed downward
- “Overhang” of excess skin in the abdominal area
- Hanging pockets of skin in groin, thighs, and buttocks
If the folds in your loose skin become wet or infected (“macerated”), this can present a health problem as well. By removing excess skin and fat and improving the contours of your remaining skin, body contouring will improve the shape and tone of your body – putting the “finishing touches” on your weight loss experience.
