Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Nick Slenkovich provides patients with solutions to meet their aesthetic goals following weight loss through customized cosmetic surgery procedure plans and patient education.

The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) predicts that as the population increasingly realizes the health dangers of obesity, the number of patients seeking body contouring plastic surgery following dramatic weight loss will continue to rise in 2011.

For these individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight, the excess loose skin can detract from their weight loss achievements.

"As we gain weight our 'body suit layer' - the skin and supporting connective tissue in the fat layer between the muscle and the skin - expands and fills. After weight loss this body suit layer often remains lax. Body contouring is often an excellent option for someone who is close to their goal weight and wants to fine-tune their body shape," said Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Nick Slenkovich.

Many others will turn to plastic surgery to firm up laxity in the stomach area or remove stubborn fat deposits that remain resistant to diet and exercise.

"Whether it's fat cells or excess skin, each person's body is unique. As such, it's essential to customize each patient's procedure and consider the body's natural contours to effectively eliminate aesthetic trouble spots while also enhancing the contours," stated Dr. Slenkovich.

Dr. Slenkovich's unique approach to body contouring combines techniques that are often seen by other surgeons as stand alone procedures to provide a solution that best meets his patient's goals. To create a circumferential, refined effect Dr. Slenkovich performs liposuction to the hips and back as a standard step while performing a tummy tuck in Denver as one such example.

A board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Slenkovich specializes in post weight loss body contouring in Denver. He is routinely a guest speaker at bariatric and weight loss support groups throughout the metro Denver area where he provides insightful and helpful information for people who are just starting to plan their weight loss journey, as well as those who've already lost the weight and are now looking for a solution to rejuvenate their body shape and fully reveal their achievement. Throughout February, Dr. Slenkovich will a featured presenter at the weight loss groups and seminars at Skyridge Medical Center, University of Colorado Hospital, North Suburban Medical Center and Swedish Medical Center.
