Women and men who lose a significant amount of weight often find that excess skin hinders them from fully enjoying their new bodies. Cosmetic surgery can be a great option for my weight loss patients in St. Louis who want to refine their body contours and remove excess skin. Plastic surgery can also make it easier for weight loss patients to participate in their favorite activities and lead a more comfortable lifestyle.
Four procedures I recommend are:
- Tummy Tuck and Body Lift: These 2 procedures go hand in hand and are ideal for lifting and tightening the lower body. A tummy tuck and body lift can improve the abdominal contour, buttocks and thighs.
- Thigh or Buttock Lift: These are good options for individuals who want sleeker, slimmer thighs and firmer-looking buttocks. However, these treatments will not address excess skin and fat around the abdomen.
- Arm Lift: An arm lift can reduce the look of “bat wings” and improve underarm firmness and tone. In some cases, liposuction alone may suffice for patients with good skin elasticity and minimal skin sag.
- Breast Lift: Weight loss affects the breasts as well as the body. A breast lift can enhance breast shape and restore your breasts to a more youthful position.
