Post Weight Loss Body Lift in Northern Virginia

If you are one of the thousands of men and women in Northern Virginia who has achieved dramatic weight loss naturally or through bariatric surgery, you know what an accomplishment it is and you should be celebrating your hard work, not worrying about hanging skin on the midsection, back, arm, or thighs.

The excess, sagging skin that remains after significant weight loss can keep you from enjoying your success, cause discomfort during exercise or routine activity, and make it difficult to find clothes that fit properly.

HOW CAN VIRGINIA BODY CONTOURING SURGERY HELP?

Body contouring after weight loss is an effective way to remove excess skin and tighten remaining skin to highlight your hard-earned weight loss results. Depending on the level of your excess skin and your desired outcome, your body contouring surgical plan may include one or more of the following procedures:

  • Tummy tuck or extended tummy tuck to tighten muscles & remove excess skin on the abdomen
  • Arm Lift to eliminate hanging skin and firm the upper arms
  • Thigh Lift to lift and firm sagging skin around the inner and outer thighs
  • Liposuction to remove additional unwanted fat deposits and refine the new body contour
  • Lower body lift to eliminate excess skin on the lower belly, hips, buttocks and thighs
  • Circumferential body lift (belt lipectomy) to remove excess skin around the entire trunk

Women in Northern Virginia might also consider breast lift surgery, with or without implants, to restore shape and volume to sagging breasts after weight loss.

ABOUT BODY CONTOURING AT THE CENTER FOR PLASTIC SURGERY IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA

Our board certified plastic surgeons have an eye for the aesthetic contouring of the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and back, and will remove excess skin to tighten and smooth these areas for a pleasing result. After your procedure(s), your clothes will fit better and you will be able to enjoy an active lifestyle in comfort.

Most body lifting procedures require an overnight hospital stay, as post weight loss surgery is more extensive and typically requires a more involved recovery process. Your procedure will be performed under general anesthesia administered by our board certified anesthesiologist.

After your surgery, you will need to avoid strenuous activity for at least four weeks. Body contouring surgery will result in visible scars, but our surgeons will take care to place them as inconspicuously as possible or where they can be hidden by clothes. We will also work closely with you to develop an incision care plan that will help your scars heal properly.
