When bariatric surgery hit the surgery scene, morbidly obese men and women had a new lease on life. This was a miracle of modern technology and science. However, just as quickly as patients lost weight, they quickly realized that rapid weight loss leaves behind unwanted results. With sagging skin on the arms, legs, abdomen, and chest, patients faced secondary issues as a result of once being obese. Surgeons wanted to provide a solution for these patients. And the solution isn’t only reserved for bariatric patients, even those who have lost significant amounts of weight can reap the benefits of body contouring surgery.

Understanding the Cost of Body Contouring Surgery
Body contouring’s price tag is one that shouldn’t deter clients from getting the surgery. Several plastic surgeons, including Dr. Mouchantat, work with patients via payment plans. Some insurance companies might even cover a portion of the cost. Loans can suffice when funds haven’t been allocated yet.
Money isn’t the issue here, but it’s something to consider when looking into body contouring. The cost can be managed with the right resources and attitude. Affording surgery costs means patients might have to be open minded and realistic about scheduling.
Understanding the Risks of Body Contouring Surgery
All surgery comes with risks. That goes without saying, however, it’s important that patients investigate the risks on their own, then ask their surgeons for more detailed information. While the benefits far outweigh the risks, it’s still a wise decision to be informed prior to agreeing to body contouring surgery. An educated patient is both confident and wise.
Understanding the Body Contouring Process
If there is sagging skin on the upper and lower halves of the body, the surgery may be performed in multiple sessions. This will depend on what is discussed during your one on one consultation with Dr. Mouchantat. If the entire body were to undergo body contouring, recovery could be challenging for some patients, but not impossible.
Patients should be aware that the majority of body contouring surgeries can be broken down into multiple sessions to alleviate the healing process. It allows patients to heal with plenty of time and attention.
