Silhouette cosmetic surgery

Harmony and balance of the body

The role of plastic surgery is to provide harmony and balance, creating a more attractive silhouette.

To reach this harmony, the silhouette must be considered as a whole. Consequently, different techniques of plastic surgery can be used separately or in association (liposuction, arm lift, thigh lift, tummy tuck, breast surgery, buttock lift or enhancement, etc…).

Silhouette surgery after major weight loss

Following weight reduction surgery, or any substantial amount of weight loss, the skin and tissues often lack elasticity and cannot conform to the reduced body size. As a result, skin that has been severely stretched now is unsupported:

  • Breasts may flatten and hang with nipples pointed downward
  • Abdominal area may extend around the sides and into the lower back area, resulting in an apron-like overhang
  • Upper arms may sag and appear loose and full
  • Buttocks, groin and thighs can sag and cause hanging pockets of skin

Surgical body reshaping following massive weight loss improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin, and removes excess sagging fat and skin.

The result is a more normal appearance to the body, with smoother contours. This is, in essence, the final phase of your total weight loss experience.
