Gastric bypass surgery or any significant weight loss leaves excess skin. To complete the process begun with dramatic weight loss, patients come to us for a body lift. With an eye for aesthetic contouring of the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and back, our surgeons remove excess skin to tighten and flatten these areas. The end result is a body that is not only dramatically thinner; it is smoother and has a pleasing, natural-looking shape. A body lift is performed under general anesthesia and we ask patients to plan on an overnight hospital stay.
