Procedure

Post-Weight Loss

Our patients who have achieved significant weight loss have unique needs that Dr. Patronella addresses with body contouring. Typically, a person who has lost a dramatic amount of weight will have excess skin and deposits of unwanted fat throughout their body. This unwanted tissue often obscures the new, attractive body contours patients have achieved through weight loss. With body contouring after weight loss, Dr. Patronella will improve your proportions to reveal a shapelier, more toned and fit physique.


Combined Body Contouring Procedures

You may have a number of problem areas following massive weight loss, all of which can be addressed for the best results. You can choose to combine procedures to achieve the overall aesthetic you desire. Undergoing procedures in tandem can save you time and money. Procedures that are often associated with body contouring after weight loss include:

Frequently Asked Questions

Financing Options
Every body contouring surgery is tailored to the patient. With Dr. Patronella’s expert advice, you will decide which procedures will help you achieve the results you desire.
Your recovery period will vary depending on the number of procedures undergone and the extent of correction performed. Generally, recovery lasts between four and six weeks. During the first week, you will experience some discomfort, bruising, and swelling. Dr. Patronella’s Recovery Guide has detailed helpful instructions for your recovery from body contouring surgery.
Most patients will have their body lift performed while they are under general anesthesia. This ensures patient safety and comfort. However, patients receiving minor corrections may be able to have their procedures performed under local anesthesia.
Many weight loss patients still have areas of localized fat that diet and exercise have not improved to the extent they desire. We can combine liposuction with other body contouring procedures to enhance the contours and proportions of your body.
