I see many patients who have successfully lost weight, but who are left with loose sagging skin. Post Bariatric Plastic Surgery addresses the skin laxity associated with massive weight loss. It can improve physical appearance and in many cases physical discomfort also.

What Areas Need Tightening After Weight Loss?

Everyone gains weight in different areas, so Post Bariatric Plastic Surgery is tailored to the individual needs of each patient. Common areas requiring lifting are the tummy, breasts and arms; however, thigh, face, back and buttocks lifts are also common. Examples of all these procedures are available on my main website:

The Tummy Tuck is Number One

The most commonly performed tightening procedure after weight loss is the Tummy Tuck, also known as Abdominoplasty.

Post Bariatric Plastic Surgery Tummy Tuck Skin Tightening

After massive weight loss, residual and redundant skin can be unsightly and uncomfortable. A Tummy Tuck removes extra skin and fat and tightens the muscles, too.n

The patient above lost over 100 pounds. The changes were remarkable, however she still cannot bed over without feeling the large roll of skin that remains on her abdomen. A Tummy Tuck was performed to remove the excess abdominal wall skin. In addition, excess fat from the lower belly was removed and the muscles of the abdominal wall were tightened.
