Losing a tremendous amount of weight is a life-changing achievement. After massive weight loss cosmetic surgery, refers to any number of procedures used to adjust the contours of a patient’s body following extreme weight loss.
Following weight loss surgery, patients may find that their body contours are drastically changed. The skin may hang loosely off one’s body and no longer conforming to the new, slimmer body shape.

It’s important for patients to be at their goal weight before surgery. Maintaining a steady weight for at least three to six months before having this type of surgery is important for the desired outcome.
We tailor procedures based on your objectives, anatomical needs, and overall health. Recommendations can include options to target one or more problem areas on the body such as the face, neck, arms, abdomen, back, buttocks, or thighs.
Patients who have lost massive amounts of weight will need adequate nutritional support prior to any surgery because key wound-healing nutrients can be low.
