Perfect Plastic Surgery Procedures for Patients Post-Weight Loss

Posted April 28, 2018 in Post-Weight Loss Procedures

Patronella_Weight_Loss_Patient_PhotosFor patients who have lost a substantial amount of weight, the excess skin that remains can often become bothersome and emotionally taxing.

Losing any amount of weight can be one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself since you are improving your body’s health while also gaining confidence in your body’s aesthetic. Those rewards are often marred and hidden beneath layers of excess skin. Dr. Patronella offers hand-tailored body contouring procedures specifically designed for the weight loss patient.

Why Am I Left With Excess Skin?

While your body is well-equipped to lose excess fat and tone muscle, your body cannot always control the way skin reacts to weight loss. Over the course of weight gain, your skin slowly stretches to accommodate the fluctuating size. Unfortunately, due to aging, your skin simultaneously loses the elasticity that prevents it from shrinking back down to size.

What Can I Do?

Excess, undesirable skin is not something to you have to accept. Body lift procedures after weight loss can finalize your transformation and leave you ready and willing to show off your hard-earned results.

True Form Tummy Tuck®

A True Form Tummy Tuck® removes excess skin and pockets of fat while creating the most natural-looking abdominal contours offered with any tummy tuck technique. Dr. Patronella devoted more than 10 years to perfect standard tummy tuck surgery methods to give you the most beautiful, authentic looking results possible.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift targets sagging on the thighs, which results from weight loss and aging. In this procedure, excess skin is excised, and the remaining tissue is redraped to give you a tightened, enhanced contour.

Arm Lift

An arm lift can be beneficial for many men and women who have lost a substantial amount of weight, as loose skin is common on the upper arms after weight loss. This procedure removes excess skin and arm tissue to create a slimmer, more toned appearance.


Liposuction is often used in combination with the above procedures to enhance your body’s contours further. Even after substantial weight loss, stubborn pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise often remain. Liposuction removes these pockets to leave you looking slimmer and trimmer.
