If you've lost a significant amount of weight, it certainly gives you reason to celebrate. However, while childbirth, weight loss surgery, or a commitment to eating right and exercising can help you feel more energetic, the appearance of your body might not meet your expectations. Residents of the MetroWest and Boston areas turn to body contouring surgery from Dr. Stephen Pap to attain the fit form they desire.

Your Options

After major weight loss, you might notice that your skin cannot conform to your new, more compact contours because it has lost its elasticity. In addition to loose skin, you might also be bothered by isolated areas of fat that remain. Body contouring surgery is a customized combination of surgical procedures designed to remove this excess skin and fat and give you firm, compact body contours. Patients often require one or more of the following procedures:

Because weight loss affects each patient differently, Dr. Pap will customize a set of body contouring procedures to your unique anatomy. During your consultation, he will review your health history and ask you about your cosmetic concerns to determine which procedures will best help you achieve your goals.

What to Expect

Dr. Pap performs body contouring surgery in a hospital setting using general anesthesia. Some patients are able to go home the day of surgery; others must remain in the hospital for supervision.

When planning body contouring surgery, the most important factor to consider is safety. These procedures are long, and often have to be done in stages. Dr. Pap will generally not exceed 6 hours in the operating room with the patient under general anesthesia. This rule allows him to provide a safe surgical experience, while minimizing the possible complications. Dr. Pap will usually schedule the next procedure after the patient has healed and recovered properly from the prior procedure.
