Body contouring after significant weight loss helps give your body a firmer overall appearance. This treatment improves the shape of your body and the tone of the underlying tissue that had previously been used to support excessive fat deposits.
How Does Body Contouring Work After Weight Loss?
After major weight loss, body and skin tissue often lack elasticity, and excess skin may feel loose and saggy. Body contouring removes this excess tissue, allowing your skin to better conform to your new body size and shape. In the end, this gives your body a firmer shape more suited to your fitter, healthier body.
