Body contouring is a medical procedure used to remove cellulite, sagging skin, and fatty tissue. Though a body lift – a procedure contouring several trouble areas – is dramatic, it can be necessary to fully deal with these embarrassing issues. Why does skin sag in the first place?
Dramatic weight loss, the aging process, genetics, and damage from the sun all reduce the skin’s elasticity level. When skin has a lower-than-normal degree of elasticity, it loses its structural integrity and droops. Liposuction cannot fix this problem, because it only removes fat. Thus, body contouring is required.
