Coping with Drastic Weight Loss
The feeling of losing a bunch of weight – and keeping it off – is a great one, right? It’s something everyone who’s losing weight wants to achieve – that drastic weight loss that stuns all of your family, friends, and coworkers.
However, even with all the positives that come from the weight loss, there are some problems you may run into. Most noticeably, if you have sagging, loose skin that remains after your weight loss, it’s a good time to contact Dr. Randall B. Weil here at Randall B. Weil MD, FACS in San Francisco, California, to explore your options.
For women who’ve lost a lot of weight, you may notice that your breasts appear to sag more, and maybe even have flattened. A breast lift can restore your breasts to their youthful fullness. After drastic weight loss, this isn’t a “vain” procedure as breast lifts are often mistakenly viewed as. Rather, it’s a great way to make sure your body looks the way it should after a big weight loss.
The other area of your body that may need some love is your stomach and abdomen area. These areas are especially prone to sagging skin after drastic weight loss, but a simply “tummy tuck” is all that’s needed to get rid of that excess skin and restore your stomach’s firm, toned, attractive look you worked so hard to achieve.
