Post-Weight Loss Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery

Procedures including upper body lift, lower body lift, tummy-tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) and a range of options designed to tighten the skin and improve the appearance of specific body areas are available. When individuals lose significant amounts of weight, or decide to have weight loss surgery to help them achieve this goal, they are undertaking a very important step on the road to better health. Weight loss surgery programs typically involve a comprehensive, long-term approach to help patients manage their weight loss safely and effectively, and adjust to new dietary requirements and lifestyle habits. Once a significant amount of weight is lost, severe risks to your overall health are likely reduced. However, excess skin and folds leftover from the period before weight loss can at times be very difficult to eliminate through traditional means, and can make you dissatisfied with your appearance. For those who choose to enhance their appearance after weight loss, cosmetic surgical procedures are available

Post-bariatric and after-weight loss surgery procedures should be performed at an accredited facility by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). This certification signifies commitment to only the highest standard of care.

Post-Bariatric and After-Weight Loss Surgery Procedures

Procedures offered to help those suffering from loose, excess skin and fat after weight loss surgery can address specific, targeted body areas for rejuvenation – such as the abdomen, arms, thighs, and breasts – or entire regions of the body at once. These procedures facilitate helping you enhance the body aesthetic for a tighter, more toned appearance.
