Body Contouring After Weight Loss

Although losing weight is often rewarding, it can unfortunately result in sagging skin. After weight loss in Louisiana, many people who want to remove the extra skin that hangs around the body choose to have a lower body lift.

Gravity and aging can also contribute to sagging skin. A lower body lift tightens the appearance of skin by removing excess skin and pulling the remaining skin closer together for a more toned, healthy look.

To get started with your body contouring procedure, request a consultation at The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery or call our office at (318) 562-1433. Conveniently located in Shreveport, we serve patients from Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas, and offer a complete array of cosmetic surgery and skin care treatments through Jade MediSpa.

Who Needs It

Those who are overweight or have lost a significant amount of weight are the most likely candidates for lower body lift plastic surgery in Louisiana. This procedure can benefit those with a significant amount of excess skin hanging from their legs and buttocks.

The Surgery

During the operation, excess fat and skin is removed to smooth out the contour of the lower body area. An incision will be made all the way around the stomach and back. The scar from this incision should not be noticeable in most swimsuits. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia.

Case 206: After Massive Weight Loss

Case 258: After Massive Weight Loss

This 52 year old woman lost 65 lbs with diet and exercise.  She was left with the residual skin and resistant fat of her flanks.  I liposuctioned 7 lbs of fat and the skin apron removal weighed 10.5 lbs.  At 3 months, her scars are still immature and pink, but her shape will be a permanent change as long as she maintains her new healthy lifestyle.  She went from an apple shaped body to an hourglass.

Case 455: After Massive Weight Loss

This 37 year-old patient came in to see Dr. Wall Jr for a mommy makeover wanting improvement in her overall shape.  She has the typical problems seen in most moms, with a focus on her breasts and circumferential trunk.  She underwent Dr. Wall Jr’s well-known “360 shrink wrap” procedure, his version of an advanced tummy tuck with SAFELipo of her circumferential trunk, not just the typical ‘spots’ of liposuction performed elsewhere with tummy tucks. With this approach, the tummy tuck includes a dramatic tightening of all loose skin and musculature, as well as a comprehensive, smooth, and natural removal of all the excess fat all the way around her mid-section- front, sides, back, and everywhere in-between. She also underwent a short scar breast lift along with a breast augmentation to achieve the look she wanted of fuller, perkier breast with nipples centered over the breast mound.  Here she is 1 year after surgery.  Notice the overall improvements to her body, including improved contour of her figure, better proportions, and a three dimensional, athletic appearance of her abdomen and belly button.  The patient reports, "I feel more confident in clothes and I love my results!" The patient is down 4 dress sizes, almost 8 inches lost in her waist and 7 inches lost to her flanks! Her contoured shape will be a permanent change as long as she maintains a healthy lifestyle and weight. IMPLANTS: MENTOR SMOOTH ROUND GEL MODERATE CLASSIC PROFILE 445 ccBRA SIZE BEFORE:   38C              BRA SIZE AFTER:   36DDRESS SIZE BEFORE:   12            DRESS SIZE AFTER:   4WAIST SIZE BEFORE:   42.91"       WAIST SIZE AFTER:   35.23" FLANKS:   46.85"                            FLANKS AFTER:   39.37"

Case 534: After Massive Weight Loss

This mother of 3 states her reason for choosing to have plastic surgery was "removal of excess skin after losing over 100 pounds, increase my confidence, healthier lifestyle, and to look like I used to." She also stated that the reason she chose The Wall Center and her plastic surgeon was because "I read the reviews and talked to people and only heard and read wonderful things about Dr. Holly." During her consultation she discussed with Dr. Holly that she was focused on an improvement of her tummy area and excess fat around her waist, but realized that what she really wanted was a dramatic change to her entire trunk, circumferentially. She also wanted slimmer thighs. During Dr. Holly Wall’s examination of the patient, it was recommended that she undergo SAFELipo of the circumferential trunk incorporated with her comprehensive tummy tuck using a very low incision and beautifully recreated umbilicus, as well as SAFELipo to the thighs. When asked how the patient feels about her results, she reported "I LOVE IT!!! I am so much more confident. I can look in the mirror without crying. After you lose so much weight, the excess skin is so depressing. Dr. Holly gave me back my life! From day 1 the staff and Dr. Holly treated me with so much respect and love. They have seen me from start to finish and kept up with my progress. They make you feel like family, very special and individual, not like a client or patient or way to make money. Just genuine and celebrate with you in your new journey. I love them and tell everyone I meet what they did for me!" The Post Op pictures were taken 1 year after her surgery. Notice the overall improvements to her body including improved contour of her figure from pear shape to hourglass. Her proportional feminine shape will be a permanent change as long as she maintains a healthy lifestyle. DRESS SIZE BEFORE:  14    DRESS SIZE AFTER:  6
