Firm Your Skin After Weight Loss With Nonsurgical Body Contouring

Featured Image

The excitement of losing weight can be short-lived when our skin appears saggy or loose. Nonsurgical body contouring at VIP Cosmetic Surgery can provide firmer skin and a more contoured appearance without invasive procedures or downtime.

Dr. Kenneth D. Farr is a board-certified ophthalmologist and oculoplastic surgeon who offers a range of cosmetic procedures that help make you feel more comfortable and confident. This includes the cutting-edge technology Morpheus8™ by InMode.

Below, our team describes how this advanced skin tightening treatment works and why so many patients choose to work with our staff after weight loss in Hilton Head and Okatie, SC. Call now to schedule your consultation.

How does loose skin develop?

Our bodies produce less collagen and elastin by the time we turn 30. These essential proteins are known for keeping our skin firm and elastic. Factors like sun damage and smoking only accelerate this process and cause loose, sagging skin that often appears wrinkled.

Weight loss is another major factor that leads to skin laxity. When we diet or have bariatric surgery, our skin may not have the opportunity to “bounce back” as quickly as we want, resulting in drooping on the face, neck, stomach, arms, and legs.

Saggy skin is difficult to tone through diet and exercise alone. Even our most diligent efforts may not be enough to achieve a contoured body. Fortunately, skin tightening treatments like Morpheus8 produce excellent results without plastic surgery.

How does Morpheus8 help?

Nonsurgical body contouring is an outpatient treatment at VIP Cosmetic Surgery in Hilton Head and Okatie, SC. It combines radiofrequency energy and microneedling technology to encourage natural collagen and elastin production. Morpheus8 sessions take 30 – 90 minutes to complete based on the size and number of areas being addressed. Dr. Farr develops personalized plans that help meet your unique goals.

Though cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin after weight loss, Morpheus8 provides excellent results without going under the knife. This option is perfect for those with mild to moderate skin laxity who are not interested in or candidates for surgery. Additional benefits of Morpheus8 include:

  • Minimal side effects
  • No anesthesia or sedation required
  • Safe for all skin types
  • Suitable for use on the face and body
  • Natural-looking, long-lasting outcomes

When can I expect firm skin?

Mild redness and swelling are normal side effects but should resolve several days after nonsurgical body contouring. As we mentioned, no long recovery times are expected. It does take time for collagen and elastin to rebuild, so you may not notice results for several weeks or months. However, outcomes are known to last for years with the right care. VIP Cosmetic Surgery can provide tips and advice on maintaining your results long-term.
