Surgical Procedures & Innovations Contouring Post-Weight Loss
Following significant weight loss, including that achieved by diet, exercise, gastric bypass, or gastric banding, the patient typically has significant areas of skin excess. This commonly includes excess skin of the abdomen, breasts, arms, and thighs. Plastic surgeons address these problems with many different potential options, including abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast lift or reduction (or in the case of males, gynecomastia excision), upper arm lift, medial thigh lift and lower body lift. These patients may also be candidates for other procedures including liposuction and facelift. Your plastic surgeon can discuss with you the various surgical options to optimize your appearance following weight loss.
