Congratulations, you've shed those pounds, hit your goal weight, or triumphed over a significant weight loss journey! An incredible accomplishment, but sometimes the victory comes with unexpected challenges. After all your hard work, it can be frustrating to look in the mirror and find excess skin or those stubborn pockets of fat in the abdominal area that are resistant to diet and exercise. 

Below, we will talk through the post-weight loss realities and uncover the secrets to achieving a toned tummy after weight loss. Through body contouring solutions tailored to your unique needs, we can perfect the body you’ve worked so hard to achieve.

The Effects of Weight Loss On Your Body

Weight loss decreases the amount of fat present in your body, and if you've gone through massive weight loss, your skin might remain stretched and sagging. This is because many times, your skin and tissues lack the elasticity to conform to your newly reduced body size. If you lose weight rapidly, your skin may even stretch and hang over your abdominal area. 

Each individual’s weight loss journey is different and presents unique challenges that require a personalized approach. Luckily, CAPS has a variety of body contouring procedure options to help you effectively achieve the abdomen of your dreams.

Body Contouring Procedures

Body contouring is the process of reducing and eliminating excess skin while tightening the surrounding areas. Body contouring can help you achieve your personal aesthetic goals after weight loss by targeting excess skin and fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. 

At CAPS, we offer both surgical and non-surgical body contouring options. Determining which type of body contouring procedure is right for you can be difficult. Read on to find out who is a good candidate for each procedure and the benefits you can experience.

If you’re still not sure, schedule a consultation with one of our seven award-winning plastic surgeons. They can help you determine which options will best achieve your goals.

Tummy Tuck After Weight Loss

tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a body contouring surgery that removes excess abdominal skin and fat while tightening and restoring the abdominal muscles. The tummy tuck procedure, also referred to as skin removal surgery, is one of the best and most effective ways to achieve a flatter, toned tummy after weight loss. 

By taking a personalized approach to each patient, our plastic surgeons are able to help you achieve the results you desire. To see what you can achieve by trusting the expert surgeons at CAPS, check out our tummy tuck before and after photos and hear what our patients have to say

“Two years ago I started my weight loss journey. I was able to lose 150 pounds. I was so proud of the work but I had abdominal skin and tissue that would not go away. Despite the excellent transformation that still bothered me. I decided to make a consultation at CAPS. From the first interaction with the team I was impressed. They have the best bedside manner of any Doctors I have worked with in my medical career. They listened, evaluated, and laid out the best options for me.

CAPS assured that I had everything I needed prior to the surgery. The day of the surgery they were just as amazing. The attention to detail was seen in my results. This was the best decision I ever made and CAPS is the best choice for a true patient centered approach to the surgical plan.”

There are two types of tummy tuck procedures; a traditional tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck. Both skin removal surgeries remove excess skin and fat, but a traditional tummy tuck also focuses on the abdominal muscle and is better for individuals with more skin laxity and muscle separation. If you have mild to moderate concerns in the lower abdomen, a mini tummy tuck may be better for you as it does not impact the abdominal muscles. 

To determine if a skin removal surgery after weight loss is right for you, schedule a one-on-one consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.

Non-Surgical Tummy Tuck

A non-surgical tummy tuck, also known as non-surgical body contouring, is a procedure that aims to tighten and tone the abdominal area without surgery. Non-surgical options use less invasive technologies to achieve similar results without making incisions. At CAPS, our non-surgical body contouring options include CoolSculpting Elite and Emsculpt Neo. 

CoolSculpting Elite is a very popular non-surgical tummy tuck option for individuals who are close to reaching their goal weight but still have stubborn pockets of fat in the abdominal area, even after consistent diet and exercise. CoolSculpting Elite uses a highly effective freezing method to target and eliminate fat cells in the abdomen. Your body will naturally and permanently eliminate the frozen fat cells from your body, resulting in 20-25% reduced fat in the abdomen. 

CAPS is the #1 provider of CoolSculpting in Ohio because our services are in such high demand. Book now to achieve the best CoolScultping Elite results by eliminating stubborn fat for good.

Emsculpt NEO is another popular tummy tuck alternative. Emsculpt Neo is the only non-invasive body contouring procedure that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle in the abdomen. By emitting both radio frequency and high-intensity electromagnetic (HIFEM+) energies, fat cells are permanently damaged and slowly removed from the body in that specific area while increasing muscle volume. 

Emsculpt NEO is best for individuals who are close to their goal weight and looking to tighten and tone abdominal muscles. Secure your booking now for remarkable Emsculpt Neo results, sculpting a more muscular abdomen at CAPS.

Minimally Invasive Body Contouring

A minimally invasive body contouring procedure is a surgical procedure that involves smaller incisions and a shorter recovery time than surgery. VASER LipoSelection uses a low level of ultrasonic energy in order to gently break apart fat cells. Once the fat cells are broken apart, they are then removed from the body with the use of liposuction. VASER is a great option for individuals who have stubborn fat deposits and want to tone their stomach while allowing their abdominal muscles to stand out better. 

If you think VASER LipoSelection may be right for you, schedule a one-on-one consultation with one of our skilled plastic surgeons.

At CAPS, we offer flexible financing options for plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures to make your body contouring journey more accessible. Our goal is to ensure that you can confidently pursue the procedure that aligns with your goals and preferences without financial stress.

Your journey to a toned tummy is unique, and the right solution depends on various factors, including your personal preferences, body composition, and desired outcomes. Whether you opt for a surgical tummy tuck or a non-surgical alternative like CoolSculpting Elite or Emsculpt Neo, our team of experienced plastic surgeons at CAPS is here to guide you every step of the way.
