Body Contouring After Weight Loss for Men

Losing a significant amount of weight is a big accomplishment, whether you shed pounds naturally through diet and exercise or through bariatric surgery. Unfortunately, many men experience post-weight loss sagging skin that makes it difficult to enjoy the results of their hard work. This extra skin not only comes with cosmetic concerns, it can also make physical activity uncomfortable, lead to painful chafing, and result in infection.

How Male Body Contouring Surgery Can Help

If you find yourself still hiding your body even after you’ve lost the weight, our board certified plastic surgeons can help you finalize your weight loss journey with body contouring after weight loss through body lift surgery. Body lifting for men can provide you with an attractive masculine contour by removing excess skin and tightening remaining skin in the following areas:

  • Abdomen: remove excess skin, tighten muscles, and highlight abs (a tummy tuck for men)
  • Flanks: tighten the sides of the body to better showcase underlying muscle definition
  • Buttocks: reduce leftover pockets of fat and skin in the lower buttocks
  • Thighs: minimize the appearance of hanging, loose skin between the legs and on the outer thighs to help clothing to fit better

Your Body Lift at Center for Plastic Surgery

Men and women have different needs when it comes to body contouring, and it’s important for you to choose a surgeon who understands how to approach the male physique. Here at CPS, our board certified surgeons have many years of experience working with male plastic surgery patients. We have an eye for masculine contouring of the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and back, allowing us to customize your procedure to your natural anatomy and desired results.

After your body lift surgery, your body should be dramatically thinner with a sculpted, masculine shape. Your clothing will fit better, and you will be able to enjoy sports and exercise more freely and comfortably.

Body lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and often requires an overnight hospital stay. Because body contouring after weight loss involves the extensive removal of skin and tightening of underlying muscle structures, the recovery period is more intensive. You will need to avoid strenuous activity for at least four weeks after surgery and will need to return more frequently for follow-up visits to ensure you are healing properly.

We know many patients are worried about scarring, which is an unavoidable aspect of surgery. Our surgeons take care to place scars as inconspicuously as possible or where they can be hidden by clothing. Most scars will fade if treated correctly, and our staff is happy to discuss treatments and products available for minimizing the appearance of scars.
