Surgery After Extreme Weight Loss
Everybody is trying to be healthier these days! One of the first things people do to better the health of their body is to bring it into a healthy weight range. For some people, this means losing a lot of weight through diet, exercise, and sometimes even surgical methods.
One of the most popular types of surgery is bariatric surgery, a process that allows patients who suffer from obesity to undergo dramatic weight loss. Often, bariatric surgery replaces traditional dieting and exercise for those who have had trouble maintaining a healthy weight using more traditional means.
Unfortunately, one of the downsides of extreme weight loss, whether through diet, exercise or bariatric surgery is the presence of excess skin. The previous weight gain caused the skin to grow and lose elasticity. And now that the extra weight is gone, the skin may appear saggy and out of place.
Thankfully, we offer a number of procedures that will allow patients who have undergone extreme weight loss to rid themselves of excess skin and the last bits of unwanted fat.
Some of the typical surgeries include:
- Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck): Skin and fat between your belly button and pubic hairline is removed, while your abdominal muscles are reconstructed.
- Mastopexy (breast lift): The natural position of the breasts is restored, giving them a more youthful appearance.
- Brachioplasty (arm lift): Excess skin and fat from the arms are removed, improving the contours of the arm.
Getting rid of this excess skin and fat has many benefits. These procedures result in healthier skin, long-lasting results, smoother-contours and overall improved appearance. Call us today and schedule an appointment to rid yourself of any extra skin or fat!
