Losing massive amounts of body weight is certainly an achievement. Yet, one of the downsides of weight loss is the resulting excess loose skin and stretch marks when overly stretched skin fails to return to its previous shape and form. Fortunately, plastic surgery after massive weight loss can help!
Below are the most common cosmetic surgery procedures that have been proven to help those who have recently experienced massive weight loss:
- Breast Enhancement Procedures (Breast Lift/Breast Augmentation) – This procedure is ideal for women who are left with deflated breasts and excess sagging skin following weight loss. Male breast reduction can also significantly reduce sagging skin amongst formerly obese or overweight men. In some cases, liposuction may be combined with male breast reduction if excess pockets of fat are also present.
- Arm Lift – Bingo wings, or having excess skin and fat in the arms, is another common problem following weight loss. For most of our patients, diet and exercise doesn’t seem to help. An arm lift procedure can help make your arms appear toned following weight loss.
- Lower Body Lift – This could be a thigh lift, buttock lift, or a combination of both. Like an arm lift, excess skin is trimmed and re-draped in these procedures.
- Tummy Tuck – There are various surgical techniques that can be used in this procedure but a firmer and flatter abdomen is the end goal of this procedure.
