What is After Weight Loss Body Contouring?

When large amounts of weight are gained, the skin will stretch to accompany the body’s new size. However, when a large amount of weight is lost, the skin can only retract so much. Patients who undergo bariatric surgery have massive weight loss. The result is large amounts of excess stretched skin that sags all around the body. Stretched, loose skin may be uncomfortable and unrewarding after all the effort that was put into losing weight. Body contouring procedures can refer to many different surgeries. Ultimately, these treatments will work to remove stretched skin and excess fat deposits.

The following is a list of surgical procedures we offer for post-weight loss patients: 

  • Arm lift: correct sagging of the upper arms
  • Tummy tuck: correct apron of excess skin hanging over the abdomen
  • Liposuction: contouring problem areas with stubborn fat
  • Breast Augmentation and Rejuvenation: restore your breasts to a youthful, natural appearance
  • Gynecomastia: restores male breast and chest area to a natural contour, using liposuction to remove excess tissue
  • Facial Rejuvenation: A facelift or neck lift will help reduce unnecessary, stretched skin in the face.

Prior to your surgery, Dr. Arslanian and his team will give you a list of instructions to prepare your body. These can include fasting for a certain amount of time and abstaining from alcohol and blood thinner medication.
