It is incredible how one can dramatically improve their overall health by losing weight, especially if they are obese. When someone loses a significant amount of weight, they often enjoy all kinds of health benefits, such as better sleep, increased energy, a boost in self-confidence, and the ability to lead a more active life.
However, a common byproduct of dramatic weight loss is excess, sagging skin, which presents a whole new set of challenges. The individual may have shed 100 or more pounds, but what they’re left with is all this extra sagging skin, which makes them uncomfortable in their new, healthier, thinner frame.
They accomplished something big, but the leftover skin keeps them from fully enjoying the benefits of their weight loss. Fortunately, an experienced cosmetic surgeon, such as Dr. Yuly Gorodisky can remove the excess skin and help restore patients’ confidence so they can enjoy their new, healthier bodies to the fullest.
Body Contouring After Weight Loss
If you have lost a lot of weight and you have loose, sagging skin leftover, skin removal surgery may be the procedure that will be like the finishing touches on your dramatic weight loss. Skin removal surgery involves various body contouring procedures that can be performed on the arms, legs, abdomen, torso, buttocks, legs, etc.
Popular body contouring procedures include, but are not limited to:
- Arm lift
- Breast lift
- Upper body lift
- Lower body lift (circumferential body lift)
- Panniculectomy (removes the “apron” of skin below the belly button)
- Thigh and buttock lift
Every patient is unique, so there is no way for us to say which procedure is right for someone until we meet with him or her in person. Depending on a patient’s needs, our Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Yuly Gorodisky may recommend other procedures to enhance the patient’s body contours after significant weight loss, such as liposuction, a facelift, neck contouring, or a breast lift and augmentation.
