Your healthy diet and regular exercise program may maintain a stable weight, but normal changes in your body over time may result in a change in proportions and curves that can affect your body image and self confidence. Further weight loss and exercise may not successfully reshape these problem areas. Body contouring performed by our plastic surgeon, Mark Pinsky, MD, can help patients “reshape” their body by removing fat or skin that has lost its elasticity. Areas treated by body contouring include the neck, upper arms, female and male breasts, abdomen, flanks, back, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees and ankles. It is not uncommon, depending on individual patient factors, the extent of surgery needed and surgeon preference, for massive weight loss patients to have multiple operations performed in stages. In such cases, the waiting period between surgeries ranges from weeks to several months or longer.
Dr. Pinsky, I have been a patient of yours since 2006. You and your staff have always exceeded my expectations. I always know I am in good hands!
