At Carolina Plastic Surgery, we offer multiple surgical procedures to help you achieve your aesthetic goals, including excess skin removal for tighter, more natural-looking body contours. Dr. Saira Saini has extensive experience in this procedure and can create professional, beautiful results that are renowned throughout the area.
What Causes Excess Skin?
Having sagging, drooping, excess skin on the body is a common cosmetic condition that is primarily caused by dramatic weight loss and by the natural aging process. Having excess skin can cause self-consciousness and a loss of confidence in your body image, and at Carolina Plastic Surgery, Dr. Saini can help improve body contours with excess skin removal.
The Excess Skin Removal Procedure
The extent of this procedure often depends on the individual and the amount of correction needed. Multiple areas of the body can be targeted during excess skin removal, including the:
In some cases, it may be possible to have multiple areas operated on in the same session. These options can be discussed with Dr. Saini during your consultation, and if you are approved for surgery, a customized plan will be created for you to help you achieve your goals with as little downtime as possible.
The healing process can be different for each patient, but most patients experience mild swelling and bruising as the skin contours heal. Dr. Saini will also discuss any aftercare instructions that may be necessary for your incision sites and advise you on when you can safely return to work and normal activities.
Although there may be some visible scarring, Dr. Saini will place incisions carefully and discuss the incision patterns with you prior to your procedure. Full results should be visible after the initial healing process, and Dr. Saini will schedule follow-up appointments with you to monitor your healing and progress.
Not all cases of excess skin qualify for surgery. The best way to find out if you are a candidate for excess skin removal is to schedule a consultation at our Fayetteville office and have your individual condition evaluated.
