A significant weight loss can sometimes result in loose, sagging skin on specific areas of the body. The loss of fat and tissue elasticity can create excess skin, causing a disproportionate body physique. Sagging skin commonly develops around the face, neck, breast, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks and thighs. Post dramatic weight loss surgery works to reduce the excess skin and fat that has been left behind.
Patients who have undergone massive weight loss commonly have multiple operations performed in stages. In these instances, the waiting period between surgeries can range from weeks to several months. The surgical plan will be developed by Dr. Harris based on individual needs and factors
During the procedures, a sutureless closer method is used that not only creates a less noticeable mark, but also offers patients a microbial barrier that allows patients to shower immediately following the surgical procedure.
Post dramatic weight loss surgeries include a combination of the following surgical procedures: Face Lift (Rhytidectomy), Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty), Arm Lift (Brachioplasty), Breast Lift (Mastopexy), as well as Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck).
