Losing a significant amount of weight (more than 100 pounds) through weight loss surgery or through specific exercises and diet is certainly a great accomplishment. It indeed leads to a positive outlook towards life. However, the person who has undergone bariatric surgery for weight loss of more than 100 pounds will eventually have heavy and loose folds of skin in various parts of the body like face, arms, back, breasts, abdomen and thighs. The skin loses its elasticity and sags as the result of stretching for a longer duration.
After undergoing weight loss surgery, the skin fails to get back to its normal size and shape. Body contouring process is the surgical procedure carried out to remove the excess skin, thus giving a more toned look after the weight loss surgery.
