Excess Skin Reduction surgery for men & women who have lost a significant amount of weight is also referred to as Body Contouring Surgery or Body Lift Surgery.
Many people who lose weight after suffering years or decades of obesity end up with loose skin folds that cannot be resolved through exercise. These skin folds cause postural issues, skin chafing and flapping noises and lead patients to feel less satisfied with their weight changes after bariatric surgery or other weight loss efforts. Plastic Surgery is the next step for reducing unwanted skin folds, redundant skin and crepey-looking skin as well as mal-distributed adipose tissues in areas of the body such as the waist, abdomen/torso, upper torso, back, breasts, face, neck, upper arms and thighs.
Key procedures for Body Lift and Body Contouring include:
- Extended abdominoplasty
- Belt lipectomy (Torsoplasty)
- Arm Reduction (Brachioplasty)
- Thigh Reduction (Thighplasty)
- Breast Reduction
