Post-Weight Loss Plastic Surgery Video

Massive weight loss will shrink our volume, but does not reliably shrink our skin. In the before and after pictures above, breast volume is restored with breast implants. Sagging breast skin is tightened with a breast lift.  Excess abdominal skin is removed, and the belly bulge caused by stretched out abdominal muscles is flattened by tightening the muscle sheath.

Post-Bariatric Plastic Surgery is Plastic Surgery after Massive Weight Loss. Whether this is after a lifestyle change or after Bariatric Surgery, the amount of skin that persists after weight loss is often large and frustrating. This Post-Weight Loss Plastic Surgery Video reviews several of the most common treatments including: Lower Body Lifts, Tummy Tucks, Breast Augmentation, Breast Lifts and Arm Lifts. The results of Post-Bariatric Plastic Surgery are illustrated and narrated in this video with before and after pictures, which describe and demonstrate what Board Certified Plastic Surgeons can do for the skin excess that often occurs after weight loss.

Extremity Tightening Procedures

The majority of skin tightening procedures performed after weight loss are for the trunk; however, the face, arms and legs can also develop excess skin. Face Lifts (Rhytidectomy), Arm Lifts (Brachioplasty) and Thigh Lifts can help with excess skin on the face/neck, upper arm and thighs. Below is an example of an arm lift.

Brachioplasty literally means arm changing. An arm lift can change the way an arm looks, feels and fits into sleeves.

Brachioplasty changes the arm by removing the excess skin that often hangs off the upper arm after weight loss. The skin is removed from the lower border of the upper arm, leaving a scar along the bottom of the arm. This is the only procedure that can remove large amounts of excess skin.
