Many overweight people who then go on to lose their excess weight are faced with a frustrating situation.  After investing a great deal of effort and time in the pursuit of a slimmer figure they can sometimes be left with excess skin and in some cases stubborn areas of fat that refuse to shift.  Such people can find that the only way to fix these problems and make the final step to the body they aspire to is to opt for plastic surgery.

Plastic Surgery Options

Loose skin can be removed through cosmetic surgery such as a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), arm lift, thigh lift and other similar procedures, all of which involve cutting away the excess skin.  Stubborn areas of fat can be removed with liposuction.  Liposuction surgery involves liquefying fatty deposits then draining them out of your body. Results are instant, although as with all surgery a certain amount of recovery time is to be expected; this can vary depending on the patient.
Weight Loss Surgery

An increasingly widely used tool in weight loss is gastric banding.  Gastric band surgery is suitable for those with a BMI between 35 and 50 and enables weight loss by helping to adjust eating habits.  The surgery consists of a band being placed around the stomach, dividing it into two sections.  When the first section is filled, the person feels full.  This reduction in appetite helps to reduce daily food intake and produce more healthy eating behavior.

As with all plastic surgery, tummy tuck, liposuction and gastric band prices continue to fall as the number of procedures increase.  Liposuction can be had for £1600 and gastric band cost has now fallen below £4000 in some places.
