It’s the holiday weekend and we all hope you’re enjoying it with great food, family and fun! We know the holidays can be an especially tempting time and those who’ve undergone significant weight loss as well as those in the midst of it, are feeling all the old temptations. We know the journey is long and trying and perhaps the hardest part of all is after it’s all done and you have accomplished your weight loss goal, only to be left with excess, sagging skin that no amount of diet and exercise can excise.

If you are dealing with extra skin under your arms, on your face or neck, back or thighs or in your abdominal region, you might choose to think about one of our many body-contouring procedures. A body lift can be personalized to fit each patients needs and desires to include whatever areas of the body need treatment. Sometimes a patient may choose to also incorporate other rejuvenation procedures as well to put the finishing touches on their new bodies. This could include breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, facial implants or blepharoplasty.

The most important thing, however, when visiting your Plastic Surgeon to discuss your options, is that you have realistic expectations and a healthy outlook. We all have things we would change about ourselves, for some of us, we actually can change those things. However, not unlike going to the grocery store when you are hungry, going to a plastic surgeon when you are really just unhappy with yourself overall, is not an ideal situation. Make sure you are in a good place mentally and physically before you decide to undergo any kind of procedure.
