Skin Removal Surgery
After a massive weight loss, it is often necessary to perform a skin removal surgery in order to restore a smoother and natural looking skin appearance. Sometimes, the surgeon may recommend this surgery after a pregnancy or to correct the severe aging effects on the skin. Your surgeon will customize the surgery plan according to the amount of sagging skin in one or more areas of the body.
The kind of surgical technique your surgeon chooses to perform this procedure as well as the discreet incision placement will impact the long term outcomes of your surgery. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides skin removal surgery to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations.
The appearance of droopy or hanging skin around your waist and abdominal area can be corrected with a tummy tuck as part of your skin removal cosmetic surgery. Your surgeon may also tighten loose and separated underlying abdominal muscles in this procedure. Sometimes the navel may be moved to a new, more natural looking position as part of the abdominoplasty surgery.
Upper Arm Lift
Massive weight loss can sometimes cause the appearance of loose and hanging skin in the upper arms. To correct this condition, your surgeon may recommend an arm lift plastic surgery. In this procedure, they will create an incision along the bottom of the upper arm or in the armpit (if lesser amount of skin removal is involved).
Sagging skin in the upper leg area can occur after a major weight loss or due to aging effects. When you gain excess weight, it can cause fat tissue pockets to occur in your thighs and buttocks. Later on when you go through a weight loss, the area will deflate, causing the skin to remain hanging if it has become inelastic. A thigh lift contouring procedure can restore the smooth, youthful look of your thighs.
A weight loss surgery will help you reduce a dramatic amount of excess weight, but it could result in the appearance of unsightly rolls that extend under your bra line to your waist or even lower. Your surgeon can eliminate the loose skin and fatty tissue pockets with a back lift surgery. With this skin removal cosmetic surgery procedure, you can achieve attractive and natural looking curves that you will feel proud of.
Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift or a traditional buttock lift plastic surgery procedure can eliminate sagging skin from your rear end. If you want to restore definition and tighter contours in your lower back, waist and hips, a butt lift surgery can help. A Brazilian butt lift is less invasive because it does not involve fatty tissue removal. Depending on your needs, your surgeon will recommend the appropriate technique to restore a younger looking posterior.
Lower Body Lift
Lower body lift surgery combines one or more procedures, such as thigh lift, buttock lift, and tummy tuck surgery. If you need a more comprehensive skin removal surgery, your treatment provider may suggest a lower body lift to eliminate large amounts of sagging skin from multiple lower body areas. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV, and nearby areas for skin removal surgery.
