Anthony Perrone, MD, serves as chief plastic surgeon at Maine General Medical Center in Augusta, Maine. In this position, Dr. Anthony Perrone provides patients with a variety of reconstructive procedures. He excels in various areas of plastic surgery, including burn reconstruction and body contouring after massive weight loss.

Weight reduction surgeries can provide many individuals with vital, lifesaving health benefits. However, the rapid loss of large amounts of weight can leave certain parts of the body out of balance with others. In order to address these issues, patients may be interested in body contouring. Body contouring, as provided by a trained plastic surgeon, can address issues of excess skin and sagging fat while at the same time reshaping the underlying tissue.

Body contouring is not a procedure itself, but rather an umbrella term used to describe a number of related surgeries. Some of the more common body contouring procedures include facelifts, breast lifts, tummy tucks, and medial thigh lifts. Individuals preparing for rapid weight loss surgery should discuss body contouring options with their surgeon.
