Skin Surgery After Weight Loss

You’ve received congratulations and compliments from your friends, family and coworkers. The gastric bypass surgery or other means of weight loss has helped you lose the large amount of weight you needed to lose, and you’re on your way to a healthier lifestyle.

The question now, you wonder, is what to do with all that extra skin?

You are not alone. Many patients who undergo major weight loss surgery are left to deal with the sagging skin. Some elect to just deal with the excess skin. Unfortunately, it never shrinks to fit your new size, but often hangs around your upper and lower abdomen, upper arms, back, thighs, neck and face as a reminder of your former appearance. Not only can it feel like your journey to weight loss is unfinished, the deep skin folds may cause rashes or hygienic problems.

In order to work move past this difficult post-weight loss phase, many patients look to body contouring procedures for removal of the excess skin. The results often boost self-esteem and confidence.

Among the many body contouring procedures specifically designed to reduce excess skin after major weight loss are:

  • Arm Lift
  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast Lift
  • Medial Thigh Lift
  • Panniculectomy
  • Lower Body Lift
  • Face or Neck Lift

The main focus during these procedures is the removal of excess skin and residual, localized fat deposits using a combination of liposuction and surgical excision. During the panniculectomy, for example, the skin and subcutaneous tissue that hangs from the abdomen like an apron is surgically removed.

An abdominoplasty can be performed in conjunction with the panniculectomy in order to reshape the abdominal muscles. Before the sutures are placed, the underlying tissues are tightened and the skin is lifted.

As with any weight loss surgery, the key to maintaining your ideal shape is committing to a healthy diet and exercise regimen. This type of “skin surgery after weight loss” may improve your outlook on life, but it’s up to you to maintain your new body shape.
