Why You Might Need Plastic Surgery After Significant Weight Loss

Weight loss is a major accomplishment, and you deserve to look and feel amazing after working so hard for this achievement. The benefits of weight loss are numerous and range from higher self-esteem and more energy to better cardiovascular health. However, one major setback a lot of patients will face is the resultant sagging skin that is a reminder of the weight they once had.

The best way to get rid of sagging skin forever is through professional removal from an expert plastic surgeon. Many of our patients consult with me, Dr. Olivier Deigni, for a solution to eliminate the sagging, loose skin left behind after significant weight loss. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I offer a number of surgical and non-surgical options at our facility. In this article, I discuss why you might need plastic surgery after significant weight loss.

Loose Skin: An Unfortunate Side Effect of Weight Loss

The truth is, after significant weight loss, your excess skin will not shrink back to the underlying bone and muscle structure but will simply hang off your body like poorly fitted clothing. This excess skin can affect everything from your self-esteem to your hygiene, how you look, move, and carry yourself, making it difficult to enjoy your weight loss and move forward with your life.

With body sculpting surgery, I can help you feel comfortable and happy in your own skin again.

Body Contouring Surgery After Significant Weight Loss

Body contouring surgery strategically targets loose skin and tissue to tighten and contour the body. These procedures are ideal following weight loss of any kind, whether through bariatric surgery or lifestyle changes. Here are the most common areas of concern for our patients:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Breasts
  • Belly
  • Buttocks
  • Flanks (love handles)

Your Options to Remove Sagging, Loose Skin

Our non-surgical procedures use state-of-the-art energy and heat technology to stimulate the skin’s contractive ability and encourage it to tighten. This also allows for enhanced body contouring and muscular definition. Non-surgical skin tightening is a good option for patients who do not wish to undergo surgery, and who are satisfied with excellent temporary results that will require ongoing maintenance.

The best way to eliminate a large amount of sagging skin is through surgical removal, where I excise the unwanted skin permanently. With surgical removal, once the loose skin is gone, it is gone forever. Surgical skin tightening is also known as body lift, and we offer lifts for many areas of the body, including stomach lifts (abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck), thigh lifts, breast lifts (mastopexy), back lifts (torsoplasty), butt lifts, and arm lifts (brachioplasty). I can also work with you to design 360-degree solutions with full body lifts.
