About Post Weight Loss Surgery
After major weight loss, you may have excess skin around your abdomen, arms, thighs, legs, neck, face, lower back, chest, and more. Depending on your areas of concern, Dr. Basile can combine various techniques to remove excess skin and tighten these areas for a leaner, better body contour.
Am I a good candidate?
Candidates for post weight loss body contouring must be in good health. Your weight must also have been stable for at least the last six months and you should plan to continue a healthy diet prior to the procedure to refrain from stress post-procedure.
How is Post Weight Loss procedure performed?
A consultation with Dr. Basile will allow you to have a better idea of the procedures necessary to achieve your goals. Several procedures may be necessary to achieve those goals, but these typically can be performed at the same time or may need a staggered approach to not put too much strain on the body. If multiple procedures are necessary, Dr. Basile will strategically plan your procedure to ensure all are cohesive. Typical procedures that can be considered post weight loss include:
- Tummy Tuck to remove and tighten skin around your abdomen
- Liposuction for a better contour in the areas that have remaining fat
- Breast lift or reshaping as sagging may occur for men or women during weight loss
- Arm lift to remove flab and achieve thinner arms
- Thigh lift to tighten and tone your upper legs
- Face or Neck lift
Results and Recovery
Depending on the extent of your surgery, more or fewer incisions may be necessary. That is part of why Dr. Basile strategically plans the procedure prior to make as little incisions as possible in similar areas. Incisions will be placed within the contours of your body to keep them as hidden as possible. Scarring for these locations will fade over time, and with optimum care are commonly unseen. Prior to your procedure, Dr. Basile will prescribe you medications to minimize pain. Recovery and downtime will depend on the procedures you underwent. You can expect to need some assistance at least 24 hours prior to your surgery. As long as your weight does not significantly fluctuate prior to your procedure, your results will be permanent.
