Why Cosmetic Surgery May Be Needed After Massive Weight Loss

 

Usually, the skin does not retain enough elasticity to return to its more attractive proportions after a massive weight loss. Every year, many people go through the difficult process of losing weight, but they do not always find happiness with their new body. In fact, many people are surprised at how unhappy they still are with their bodies. The fat is gone, but the skin that held it in place didn’t diminish in the same fashion; the skin is now sagging with folds that can cause a significant amount of pain caused by chafing and rashes. Chafing can cause infections to occur due to the irritation that results from this condition.

The physical issues are made more difficult because the sagging skin results in a loss of self-esteem which people thought would improve with their weight loss. However, they are now burdened with having to wear clothes that are too large just to hide the sagging skin. The clothes look baggy, and they don’t fit correctly, this is far from the results people were expecting. Their self-esteem did not increase, and often it dropped.

A study published in the Journal of Plastic Surgery showed that people who had cosmetic surgery to remove loose skin did much better over time. They could buy clothes that fit, and they felt good about being in social settings. Their level of confidence in intimate situations also improved.

The goal of cosmetic surgery is to restore the attractive proportions of the body by removing the sagging skin around parts of the body that create a poorly shaped body contour.
