Successfully losing a considerable amount of weight can cause the skin to lose elasticity and hang off your frame, obscuring the results you worked so hard for. Regardless of whether you underwent bariatric surgery or achieved dramatic results with lifestyle changes, massive weight loss can leave you with sagging skin and pockets of fat in various areas such as the arms, thighs, and abdomen.
Liposuction at our Carmel, Indiana, office, serving the greater Indianapolis area, can be useful for fat removal, but it cannot address sagging skin. Generally, liposuction is only recommended after significant weight loss in combination with other body contouring procedures. Surgical options to address sagging skin include abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), arm lifts, breast lifts, and thigh lifts.
For certain cases, our doctors can utilize liposuction as part of a fat transfer to adjust the proportions of your figure after major weight loss.
