Skin Removal After Major Weight Loss

Skin Removal

After Major Weight Loss

Brachioplasty
(Arm Lift)

A brachioplasty, commonly called an arm lift, is a surgical procedure to reshape and provide improved contour to the upper arms and connecting area of chest wall.
Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward
• Tightens and smoothest the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region
Fluctuations in weight, growing older and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise.
Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms is sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat.

Thigh Lift

Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.

If fitness and weight control efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical lift may be right for you.

Buttock Lift

A buttock lift, or gluteal lift, improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports skin and fat in the buttock area.

Aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight and genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity that can result in sagging of the buttocks.

In order to achieve a smoother and more pleasing contour, excess sagging skin and fat are removed.

A traditional gluteal lift will not make a butt larger, but may improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface.

This procedure may be included in a body lift or may be performed separately.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Breast lift surgery (Mastopexy) removes excess skin that has accumulated around the breast during pregnancy or weight changes. Placement of a breast implant can be combined with this procedure to achieve the desired result.

A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted. A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:

Pregnancy
Breastfeeding
Weight fluctuations
Aging
Gravity
Heredity

Abdominoplasty

This surgical procedure is used to remove skin excess and fat from the mid-lower abdomen and to re-tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall.

The procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a bulging abdomen. It is important to know that in cases of massive weight loss the incision can be combined with a horizontal and a vertical cut, this depends on the assessment of the Plastic Surgeon.

It is indicated for:
– Excess or sagging abdominal skin
– A protruding abdomen out of proportion to the rest of your body
o Abdominal muscles that have been separated and weakened
o Excess of fat tissue that is concentrated in your abdomen
If you have plans to become pregnant or lose weight in the future, it is important to discuss this with your plastic surgeon.
