Skin Reduction from Weight Loss

  


       SKIN REDUCTION AND OTHER PROCEDURES
          FOR SUCCESSFUL WEIGHTLOSS PATIENTS

Ever since I was in general surgery in the 1980's, there has been increasing interest and refinement of both restrictive and bypass operations for those who are substantially overweight. The result of this is a large number of patients who have lost a great deal of weight, but now are faced with excess skin and loss of elasticity.

Fortunately, there are very good procedures designed just for this group of patients. These are SKIN REDUCTION procedures such as Tummy Tuck, Upper Arm Lift, Medial Thigh Lift, etc.  These procedures are often done in concert with Liposuction and sometimes Breast Reduction or Breast Enhancement, depending on the patient's individual needs and desires.

This is somewhat similar to the "Mommy Makeover" but the magnitude of the problem is far greater. While the patient's appearance can be improved significantly, the results are not the same as the Mommy Makeover due to the severity of the original problem. 

Take a moment to view some of the procedures we have done to better understand the problems and solutions available.
