You’ve Done the Work and Lost the Weight – Now What?

istock 519618162 300x200 1 It can be very discouraging – you’ve dieted and exercised religiously, and you have lost a lot of weight. However, when you look in the mirror, you still aren’t happy with what you see. You may have lost many pounds, but it can be next to impossible to get rid of that last bit of unsightly excess skin and fat. If you are looking for a way to tone up your body after weight loss, Dr. Jeffrey Dawes can help. Here are just a few of the procedures to choose from if you are looking for some tightening and contouring after weight loss.


Liposuction helps to make the body look more toned and slimmer by removing the last stubborn bit of fat that doesn’t want to leave certain hard-to-tone areas. Treatable areas of the body can include the thighs, arms, hips, waist, back, inner knees, chest, and chin.

Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)

A tummy tuck tightens and smooths muscles in the stomach area, as well as removing excess skin, giving you a slimer and firmer abdomen – the goal of many people who diet and exercise.

Mini-tummy tuck

If you don’t need contouring above your belly button and your abdominal muscle wall is not significantly protruding, a mini-tummy tuck may be the right procedure for you. The scar left after this procedure is shorter than in a traditional abdominoplasty.


You can work out to tone up your abs – but what can you do to tone up sagging skin on the face? A facelift, neck lift, corset platysmaplasty or a combination of procedures can get rid of sagging skin under the chin and jawline. Other non-surgical/ injectable treatments such as Belkyra (for under chin fullness) and Radiesse for the jawline may also be options.

Mastopexy (breast lift)

The breasts lose volume when the pounds come off. A breast lift can help to give breasts a firmer look, improve breast shape, symmetry, and projection, recreate a more youthful appearing breast and lift drooping nipples.

Thigh Lift

Fitness and weight loss may help strengthen and tone this area, but may not affect the saggy, flabby and/or dimply skin, lost elasticity, weakened tissue or localized fat deposits. This procedure will help attain firmer, more youthful looking thighs.

One or a combination of these procedures can help if you want to get rid of what remains after weight loss. You can finally get the results you’ve wanted all along, with a procedure from Dr. Jeffrey C. Dawes MD,  Plastic and Dermatologic Surgery in Calgary. Call (403) 571-3141 for a consultation today!
