Skin Removal & Tightening after Weight Loss
Losing a large amount of weight is a phenomenal achievement! However, after losing so much weight, loose folds of skin can remain. This excess skin can cause heavy folds on the arms, thighs, breasts, buttocks, face, and abdomen. Thankfully, excess skin can be tightened or removed with surgery after weight loss. These surgeries include tummy tucks, or abdominoplasties; buttock augmentation (butt lift) surgeries; breast lifts; and arm lifts.
Skin removal surgery offers you a firmer, trimmer, toned body to complement your amazing weight loss achievement. Oakland County board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali provides many types of surgery that can tighten your skin after weight loss.
Tummy Tuck Surgery after Weight Loss
After weight loss, patients have rid themselves of fatty tissue, but are often left with excess skin around the abdomen, flanks and lower back. This skin is normally of a poor quality, since it has lost its elasticity. Unlike excess fat, which can be lost through dieting or removed with liposuction, excess skin needs to be surgically removed.
Abdominoplasty (or “tummy tuck”) will benefit those individuals who need skin removed from the front and sides of the abdomen – for firm, tight “abs” after weight loss.
The incision is typically made in areas that can be cover by underwear or bathing suits. However, since these incisions do need to be longer to remove the excess skin, going to a highly skilled board certified plastic surgeon is essential. Board certified Oakland County plastic surgeon Dr. Ali ensures the smallest and least visible scars possible, while removing and tightening excess skin after weight loss.
Breast Lift Surgery after Weight Loss
After weight loss, breasts can lose their perkiness, and sag or droop. A breast lift can remedy this problem . A breast lift can firm and reshape your breasts, restoring a youthful and attractive appearance. During a breast lift, excess skin and tissue is removed, and nipples can be repositioned by Oakland County plastic surgeon Dr. Ali.
Many female patients also get breast implants, in addition to breast lift surgery, to improve their breast shape, size and position after weight loss.
Arm Lift Skin Removal Surgery after Weight Loss
Another area that can be an issue after weight loss is hanging skin in the upper arms, sometimes referred to as “bat wings”. During an arm lift, loose skin is removed with an incision along the underside of the upper arm by Oakland County plastic surgeon Dr. Ali.
Other surgical skin removal options include a back lift or bra line lift. During a back or bra line lift, excess skin is removed through incisions around the bra line. This leaves the patient with a firm and smooth upper back, and no loose or hanging skin.
