Weight gain, pregnancy, and other lifestyle factors can cause significant changes in your body composition. This can cause excess fat to build up in your abdominal region. Even after putting in the hard work to lose weight and transform your appearance, you might still be left with excess skin on your abdomen.
In a situation like this, you should consider scheduling a consultation with the cosmetic surgeons at Artistic Contours. During this simple outpatient appointment, Dr. Mohammad Banki and his staff can assess the health and contributing factors associated with the excess skin, and present you with the most applicable treatment method.
An abdominoplasty, which is also known as a tummy tuck, can effectively remove excess fat and skin to give you a more visually appealing abdominal area. In some cases, this treatment can also be used to address minor muscle separation issues.
At your initial consultation, your surgeon will evaluate the muscle structure and shape in your abdominal region. This will help to understand the state of your current abdominal structure, so we can present you with treatment options as well as other lifestyle modifications to consider.
It’s important to understand that abdominoplasty is not intended to be a weight loss program. This method of treatment is not designed to remove excess fat, and cannot effectively treat health complications or conditions resulting from obesity.
If you live in the Warwick, Rhode Island area and you are struggling with loose skin after significant weight loss, you should call 401.732.1440 to schedule a consultation at Artistic Contours.
