Phoenix, AZ — Losing a substantial amount of weight through diet and exercise and/or bariatric surgery can be a life-changing experience both physically and psychologically, says Phoenix plastic surgeon Steven H. Turkeltaub, MD. Most of the time, however, those individuals who have experienced massive weight loss find that they are left with loose, irregular, excess and often hanging skin and localized mounds of stubborn fat in several areas of the body. For people interested in addressing these cosmetic concerns, he notes that there are a multitude of different body contouring procedures available that can help them achieve a tightened, more sculpted and attractive figure.

At the Arizona Center for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Turkeltaub’s patients have a variety of post weight loss surgery options to choose from based on the specific areas they wish to target. He states that some of the most common procedures include:

Should a patient desire to address several areas of concern, Dr. Turkeltaub notes that multiple procedures can often either be performed in combination or in separate stages. “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.”

Ultimately, Dr. Turkeltaub states that the removal of the excess skin and fat that are present along with plastic surgical sculpting after significant weight loss can be exceptionally rewarding for individuals who made the decision to change their lives for the better through diet, exercise and/or bariatric surgery. For anyone interested in post weight loss body contouring, he strongly recommends seeking the expertise of an experienced board certified plastic surgeon who can custom-design a safe and effective treatment plan that addresses their personal needs.

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.
