Achieve Your Desired Look
Unfortunately, it is common for patients who have achieved substantial weight loss to find that losing the surplus weight has not given them their dream figure. This is because major changes in weight can cause your skin to lose its elastic quality, rendering it unable to shrink back to a smaller size and shape after massive weight loss. This sagging skin may hang in folds off of your body. The good news is that Dr. Michael Burgdorf can help tighten up that skin for the dramatic results you’ve dreamed about and worked so hard to achieve. Let us help you with skin tightening in Nashville, TN!
Am I a Candidate for Skin Tightening?
You may be a candidate for a body lift and skin tightening procedure if…
- You suffer from excess skin that has lost its elasticity and droops off the body due to massive weight loss (often with the help of bariatric surgery), pregnancy, or the aging process.
- You still have localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.
- You suffer from damaged supporting tissues that make it difficult or impossible to firm up certain areas of your body.
To help with these difficulties, board-certified surgeon Dr. Michael R. Burgdorf offers a number of post-bariatric body contouring procedures, also called body lift procedures. These are intended to eliminate the excess skin and fat that often remain following massive weight loss, as well as repair any damaged underlying tissues.
Contouring Procedure Options
Specific body-contouring procedures offered at our office include:
- Buttock lifts
- Thigh lifts
- Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
- Arm lifts
- Breast lifts
- Belt Lipectomy, aka Full Body Lift
These body contouring procedures can be performed on their own or in combination for optimal results.
This can be an exciting time, and Dr. Burgdorf will take the time to educate you fully on each step of your transformation. During your initial consultation, Dr. Burgdorf will help you decide which areas of desired improvement are the most important to you, and he will customize your body contouring surgery treatment plan accordingly. As a highly trained and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Burgdorf’s utmost goal is to help you achieve natural-looking, aesthetic results through prudent treatment planning.
Skin Tightening After Pregnancy
The experience and aftermath of pregnancy can bring with it an incredible mixture of positive and negative emotional states, some of which relate directly to the significant changes that pregnancy has wrought on your body. One of the most affected physical areas is the midsection. Your skin and abdominal muscles stretch out, and they may struggle to return to their former state once your pregnancy has ended. As a result, you may be left with stretch marks and, in some cases, a flap or pooch of skin that hangs down from your belly.
Dr. Michael Burgdorf can help you achieve an appearance closer to your pre-pregnancy body through the abdominoplasty procedure, more commonly known as the tummy tuck. This procedure helps tighten your skin, reduce obvious stretch marks, eliminate any overhanging skin pooch, restore your belly button, and make your abdominal muscles visible again.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Burgdorf, he will discuss various factors with you to determine if now is the right time for you to have an abdominoplasty. Some questions he will consider are whether you have lost most of your pregnancy weight, whether you plan to have more children, and whether you’ve had a C-section or other abdominal surgery. Dr. Burgdorf will educate you fully on all your options, and he will help you decide not only whether a tummy tuck is right for you but when your tummy tuck should be performed to help you achieve maximum and lasting aesthetic results.
