New York Facial Plastic Surgery Can Repair Sagging Skin
People who lose a significant amount of weight, whether the old-fashioned way through diet and exercise or the modern way through Lap-Band surgery, are thrilled with their achievement, and they should be; but few are prepared for the unpleasant after-effects of sizable weight loss (see our previous post). When skin is stretched by weight gain, it begins to lose some of its elasticity. When the fat that supported the over-stretched skin is removed, the skin lacks the ability to “snap back.” Without support, it lies more loosely over the bones and muscles that give your face and body form, creating wrinkles, furrows and sags. For many NY women and men the gulf between the slim, taut face and body they have been imagining throughout the weight-loss process and the disappointing reality is devastating. Having invested so much emotionally, physically and financially in the transformative process, they are heart-broken to still be embarrassed by their face and figure.
Fortunately, wrinkled cheeks and sagging jowls do not have to be a life sentence. Adding an additional step to the transformative process – facial plastic surgery – can turn dreams into reality. With the help of an expert board-certified NY facial plastic surgeon, people who have accomplished significant weight loss can achieve the attractive appearance they desire.
Completing the transformative process begins with a private consultation with a Manhattan facial plastic surgeon. Expect the cosmetic surgeon to examine the structure of your face and neck, the condition of your skin and the extent of wrinkling, furrowing and sagging. He will also discuss with you your appearance goals before tailoring a cosmetic surgery program to meet those goals. Depending on the extent of damage, your surgeon may recommend a single procedure or a combination of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. The good news is that by adding this final step to the transformative process, you can be happy and proud of your appearance.
