Posted on July 27, 2023 in Weight Loss Surgery by Lewisburg Team
Achieving weight loss is a commendable feat. Excess skin and stubborn fat can hinder your transformation. Post-weight loss procedures provide transformative options to help individuals attain their desired body shape. In this article, we explore the available treatments for those looking to complete their weight loss journey in Lewisburg, PA.
Renowned plastic surgeons at Lewisburg Plastic Surgery & Dermatology offer various body contouring options. These procedures address loose, sagging skin and residual fat deposits commonly occurring after weight loss, allowing individuals to achieve a more toned and proportionate appearance. The body contouring options include:
Even after significant weight loss, some individuals struggle with localized fat deposits that seem resistant to diet and exercise. Our board-certified plastic surgeons employ advanced liposuction techniques to remove excess fat from various areas, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, and neck. Liposuction is an effective solution for targeting these trouble spots and achieving a more streamlined figure.
A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) targets excess abdominal skin and fat and tightens the underlying muscles, resulting in a flatter, firmer midsection. This will eliminate an unflattering and physically restricting “apron” that can hang over the groin.
The corset body lift is an innovative procedure designed by Dr. Moya. For some patients, he found that a standard tummy tuck does not address excess skin on the entire abdomen that can occur with large amounts of weight loss. This procedure not only targets and reshapes the upper and lower abdomen, but also the lower chest and upper and lower back, enhancing the entire waistline. Regardless of your overall body size or amount of excess skin, this procedure can be tailored to you and your goals.
“Bat wings” or sagging skin on the upper arm is a common concern after massive weight loss. By eliminating loose skin and fat from the upper arms, an arm lift helps achieve a more sculpted and youthful arm contour.
The thigh lift procedure removes excess skin and fat from the inner thighs to create smoother, more defined legs. The lower body lift also targets the thighs and can be considered for patients with additional excess skin on the buttocks and abdomen.
As fat is lost from the chest and breasts, skin will start to sag and create the appearance of drooping breasts. For those experiencing sagging breasts after weight loss, a breast lift can restore a more youthful and uplifted appearance. Some weight loss patients can experience volume loss in the breasts. Breast implants can be added to a breast lift procedure to restore fullness & improve overall shape.
The lower body lift is ideal for individuals with sagging skin on the lower body, a lower body lift addresses excess skin and fat on the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks, providing comprehensive body contouring.
Individuals with overly large breasts can opt for a breast reduction procedure to reduce the volume and weight of their enlarged breasts. This can alleviate back and shoulder pain and improve body proportion, especially after significant weight loss.
