Body contouring removes excess skin to reveal the tone of underlying tissue
Significant weight loss can be one of the most intense battles you can have with yourself
Losing a large amount of weight can ultimately be a very emotional journey and can be an exercise in perseverance; especially for individuals who plan to lose over 20kg. There are many ways to change your life, from living with major weight issues, to living a more fit and healthy lifestyle. But getting your physique to where you want it to be – including your skin and overall body shape – can be a more complex challenge for people who have lived with major weight problems for a long period of time.
If you are struggling with excess skin, body contouring may be able to help you define your body.
Complete body transformation through body contouring
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is a combination or series of surgeries to remove excess folds of skin. Surgeries usually associated with a body contouring procedure include liposuction and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). A range of operations may be required to address all of your body contour concerns. Some of these may be able to be combined in a single operation to address multiple areas. The planning for this, and decisions about staging and timing will be discussed in your initial consultations with Dr Yang in Brisbane.
Is body contouring safe?
As with any major surgery there are a certain amount of risks and potential complications. Common side effects include bruising and swelling. The shape of the body may change over time, and the final result may not be noticeably visible for a few months.
How much does body contouring cost?
Because of the number and complexity of the surgeries involved, a combination of body contouring procedures can be costly. We encourage patients to book a consultation with Dr Yang to discuss your concerns, perform an assessment and go over all of the relevant details including the procedure in more depth and the cost.
