Whether it’s achieved through bariatric surgery or a strict but well balanced diet and regular exercise, losing a significant amount of excess weight can be a key step to living a healthier, happier lifestyle. However, the consequences of massive weight loss often include loose, inelastic, redundant skin in various areas of the body that may hang down, detracting from one’s otherwise improved appearance. In some cases, extensive lax skin can also create hygienic problems.

The good news is that men and women who are unhappy with their lax, stretched out skin following massive weight loss DO have several effective solutions. The following list includes some of the most common post weight loss procedures (and targeted areas) that can be used in order to remove loose, excess skin of various areas of the body.:

For individuals interested in improving multiple anatomic areas, these plastic surgery procedures can either be performed in separate stages or combined, the determination of which would be based on a variety of factors. For instance, if you wish to improve the appearance of drooping breasts, hanging arm skin and loose skin of your abdomen and mid-section, an abdominoplasty and lower body lift may be combined to form the first stage of treatment, followed later in time by a breast lift with/without implants and an arm lift.

If you are interested in getting rid of the excess skin and fat following your massive weight loss and rejuvenating your appearance, a customized treatment plan can be designed, working together with your board certified plastic surgeon, that will meet your unique needs and goals.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.

We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.

For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.

In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.

We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
