Rob Kardashian's Weight Loss Makes Him a Body Contouring Candidate

Rob Kardashian - LocateADocRob Kardashian is the black sheep of the Kardashian clan. It is not that he is not good looking or rich or successful. Rather, he is a person who marches to the beat of his own drum. In fact, he does not mind messing up the Kardashian nest every now and again. Rob has always felt somewhat in the shadow of his famously gorgeous sisters. Although he has been shown much love and support from his family, especially from his sister Khloe, he always felt a little distant from the family.

Perhaps he was just a bit too different to fit in. However, Rob Kardashian has a personality that is larger than life. In recent years, he had gone through a major depression which caused an enormous weight gain. In fact, this weight gain caused him to have such emotional pain, he hid out for many months. He was most likely too ashamed to face the paparazzi. When he has sisters as gorgeous and in the spotlight as his Kardashian/Jenner siblings, he must have felt increasingly ashamed of his weight gain.

However, his love lady love, Blac Chyna, has come gloriously into his life and made him a happy man. In fact, Rob has been shedding weight like crazy and was last seen in March comfortably going shirtless. Chyna has been a source of inspiration for Rob to lose weight and keep it off. As a matter fact, she has taken up cooking clean and healthy meals for Rob resulting in him being motivated to lose weight and keep it off.

The two are notoriously in love and rumors abound that the pair might be getting engaged in the not too distant future. This bit of news has not gone down well with the Kardashian sisters as Kylie Jenner's boyfriend, Tyga, was famously seeing Chyna at one time. That relationship turned sour and the Kardashian clan is none too happy about the pair of lovebirds. Despite the tension, Rob has never looked better and more happy. The infusion of life that he is gotten from changing his eating, exercise, and motivational habits have done him a world of good. Not to mention, Chyna has helped him get back his mojo.

Unfortunately, one problem that Rob has is loose, sagging skin from losing enormous amounts of weight. There are procedures that can help tighten this loose skin after dramatic weight loss. The people who are the best candidates are those whose weight has been stable for at least six months, with the ideal of weight stability of eighteen months after weight loss. This ensures that this loose skin has shrunk to its minimal size in order to get the best results.

In addition, a person must be in good general health with no major medical issues such as diabetes or heart conditions. The best candidate for surgery will also have a lot of mental stamina as body contouring requires lots of patience. In addition, the patient must also have a clear understanding that their skin will not return back to its original shape after surgery. The patient must also keep a good diet and healthy habits.

A panniculectomy is a surgery which helps remove the apron of skin hanging down below the navel. The surgeon will make an incision around the pubic area and remove the excess skin and tighten it up with sutures. The best candidate for surgery is someone who is having problems such as infections resulting from the over hanging loose skin. Sometimes a drain is required which may require home care. Surgical tape is applied to the incision in order to speed healing. A panniculectomy is one of the most popular skin tightening procedures that are performed.

A lower body lift is intended to reshape the abdomen, waist, thighs, and hips. It is done through an incision that is made around the circumference of the whole body. The excess skin is removed and tightened with sutures. An abdominoplasty is also a popular surgery in which the excess fat is removed through an incision made near the bellybutton. The surgeon will then suture up the loose skin and the bellybutton will be pulled through and repositioned and sutured as well.

Liposuction is also a very popular procedure which contours and removes excess skin and fat through a tiny incision on hips, waist, trunk, and thighs. A cannula or thin tube is inserted through the layers of fat in those areas and a vacuum suctions out the excess fat. The surgeon then removes the excess skin and sutures it up.

A breast lift is a procedure in which the surgeon removes the excess fat from the breast and reshapes it to a new and youthful shape. In addition, the surgeon also repositions the nipple and areola so that the breasts are more uplifted and flattering to the women's shape.

A brachioplasty is a procedure which removes the excess skin especially from the back of the arms. The excess fat is then sucked out and the arm is reshaped to give a more youthful and flattering shape. A thighplasty involves tightening up the areas from the groin to the inner and outer thighs. The inner thigh lift is the most popular of the thighplasty in which the fat is removed through a vertical incision made in the inner thigh and the excess skin is tightened up. In addition, an outer thigh procedure may be also performed to tighten up excess skin in that area.

Many believed Rob Kardashian was once a sad vision of hopelessness. His ever increasing weight and the scrutiny from the paparazzi seemingly caused him to plunge even deeper into his depression. However, with a little help from his loving girlfriend, Blac Chyna, he was able to have hope again and lose impressive amounts of weight.

With that weight loss came the inevitable hanging and loose skin which may be a source of embarrassment. However, with the advances in medicine and surgical contouring, Rob has options to reduce that sagging look and once again recapture his youthful and handsome self. Body contouring has provided hope for those who have put in the hard work to lose weight by giving patients hope to look young and slim with skin that is firm, tight, and supple.
