He made history on Tuesday night when it was revealed that he'd lost 239 pounds, a full 55.58% from his original weight, the most lost in Biggest Loser history. He's Danny Cahill, and he just won $250,000.
Many people find that after significant weight loss they struggle with the excess skin that's left behind. There are luckily several cosmetic surgery procedures available to assist in removing the loose skin that exercise cannot. Procedures such as a tummy tuck are available for those who've lost a moderate amount of weight. For those who've lost a larger amount, a body lift may be the better option.
The body lift is also known as circumferential abdominoplasty as it removes not only the excess skin and fat on the stomach, but also wraps around to the sides and back. The procedure is a risky one as it involves the loss of a greater amount of fluid loss than other similar surgeries but can be highly beneficial for those with a great amount of excess skin.
Also available are arm lifts and thigh lifts. These procedures can help tone the areas most affected by weight gain, and subsequent loss. Breast lift surgery is also available for women who have lost volume in their breasts and would like to achieve a perkier, fuller appearance.
Before undergoing any weight loss program, it is best to consult your physician. There are alternatives to traditional diet and exercise which include medical weight loss and gastric bypass procedures, though these procedures require patient compliance to truly work best.
