After Weight Loss Cosmetic Surgery

The 5 Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures after Weight Loss

Plastic Surgery Procedures

Whether from surgery or through diet and exercise, weight loss is on the rise. Shedding significant pounds is rewarding, however, many are left with loose, hanging skin once the weight is gone. Unfortunately, excess skin can’t shrink to the body’s slimmed-down size. Body contouring procedures after weight loss remove loose, sagging skin to reveal new, sleek contours. Five procedures in particular are in hot demand after weight loss.

  1. Breast Lift

    As breasts grow, the skin or tissue that contains them expands. Following weight loss, breast volume may decrease but the skin is stretched out, which causes sagging breasts. A breast lift removes extra skin and tightens surrounding tissue to create a new, uplifted contour and elevated breast position.

  2. Lower Body Lift

    This surgery is customized to target the regions of a person’s body where loose, excess skin hangs. A lower body lift can tighten and sculpt the buttocks, thighs, hips and abdominal area.

  3. Thigh Lift

    A thigh lift removes excess skin from the back of the thighs or the inner and outer thighs. This procedure can offer a more proportioned contour and result in firmer, smoother skin.

  4. Tummy Tuck

    One of the most popular cosmetic procedures, a tummy tuck, can address protruding bellies, weakened muscles and sagging skin. Once healed from the surgery, patients emerge with flatter, better-toned abdomens.

  5. Upper Arm Lift

    Skin on the upper arms can droop downward, creating the appearance of what some people call ‘bat wings.’ An upper arm lift not only removes excess skin, it tightens the underlying tissue to provide more tone and definition.
