Ideal Candidates for Body Contouring Surgery

Loose and severely stretched skin is often the result of massive weight loss. Your upper arms tend to sag and your breasts may look flat with nipples may point downwards. On the other hand, your abdominal area may overhang into the sides while your thighs, groin and buttocks may cause pockets of skin to appear. Dr. York Yates recommends a Salt Lake City body contouring procedure for individuals who have just experienced the aforementioned bodily changes.

Excellent candidates for body contouring surgeries include:

  • any adult who has achieve stable weight for the last 6 months
  • non-smokers
  • individuals who are in good physical and mental health
  • individuals with realistic expectations

It is relatively important for you to have stable weight because sagging pockets of skin will redevelop if you keep on losing weight. On the other hand, if you regain your weight, you will most likely stress your already thin skin from the trauma of stretching.
