What are other ways to contour my body and lift my breasts other than surgeries?

I am 30 years old and have been overweight for more than 15 years. I will undergo an OMEGA LOOP BYPASS, my current weight is 125 KG and I am afraid of invasive plastic surgeries. What are other ways to contour my body and lift my breasts other than surgeries? I want to live my thirties fully and be able to do things I didn't do in my twenties. I do not want to end up with scars and cuts; this is why I thought of nonsurgical procedures that can change my life. I would appreciate your help.

None of the "non invasive" technologies (such as Thermage, Trusculpt, Ultherapy, Coolsculpt, Cellulaze, etc.) currently available are going to work after your weight loss. Do not be lured into spending any money on these procedures (which I have in my practice) but will NOT work for you. You will eventually have to make the choice between loose skin and scars. There is no way around this and when that time comes for you seek the advice of a Plastic Surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery who does body contouring procedures for their analysis and advice.

One of the best things you can do to live your life in your thirties to the fullest is to lose the weight that you have planned. The other things such as procedures to reshape your body will be a secondary "icing on the cake". Unfortunately, in my experience non-surgical procedures for patients who have undergone massive weight loss are usually unsatisfactory in their result. For the best results seek the consultation of a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. They have a website listing all the certified plastic surgeons. Members of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will all be board certified in plastic surgery and have demonstrated an interest and competence in cosmetic plastic surgery as well.

Congratulations on taking important steps to improve your health. Obesity can lead to multiple health problems in the future such as diabetes and heart disease. Once you have lost your weight, an evaluation by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon can help you to prioritize your goals in body contouring. Although there are some non surgical devices on the market that can help tighten skin, they are generally not sufficient to help with extremely loose skin that may or may not occur after massive weight loss. As you are losing the weight, you will be better able to judge how your own body's collagen and elastic fibers react to your body changing.
