Body Plastic Surgery Charleston SC
Body plastic surgery and contouring procedures are becoming more popular every day. One reason for this is the recent dramatic increase in the number of patients undergoing weight loss surgeries.
Generally, people are also becoming more concerned about diet, exercise and weight management. Following massive weight loss patients are often left with large amounts of redundant skin, causing moisture, rash and irritation in areas throughout their body. While topical medications can have a temporary effect on these conditions, surgical resection of the redundant tissue is the definitive treatment. It is important to remember that wound healing issues and scarring are result of body contouring. It is unclear as to the cause, but patients who have had weight loss surgery tend to have more challenges with wound healing than patients who have not had weight loss surgery. In order to remove the areas of redundant skin, incisions are necessary which leads to scarring. For our body plastic surgery patients, we attempt to place the incisions in areas which hide the scar when possible, but ultimately patients are trading redundant skin and fat for scars, which most patients are happy to do.
