My TV Debut on TLC’s Skin Tight

Plastic Surgeon in Austin Featured on TLC Show Skin Tight

If you’ve been following along with Synergy Plastic Surgery on Facebook and Twitter, you know how passionate I am about my latest project, TLC’s new show Skin Tight. I am thrilled to have my Austin practice highlighted, and I’m even more honored to be an integral part of such incredible patient transformations.

The show was inspired by TLC’s hit My 600-lb Life and shares the next chapter of some participants’ weight loss journeys. For individuals who have undergone gastric bypass surgery or a significant shift in lifestyle, a common side effect is, unfortunately, unwanted skin that is left behind. This constant reminder of the lifestyle they’ve overcome spurs patients to want to reveal the bodies they’ve worked so hard for, and that’s where I come in.

As a plastic surgeon, reconstructive procedures following massive weight loss are challenging, but they are definitely some of the most rewarding treatments I perform. Weight loss patients commonly undergo a combination of procedures including upper arm lift, breast lift, tummy tuck, thigh and buttock lift, or liposuction. For patients like Tim (my patient featured in the Skin Tight season premiere), multiple major surgeries are required for optimal results. While each individual treatment plan is incredibly different, in the end, my ultimate goal is to help patients feel the confidence they deserve. Now with 17 pounds of skin removed, Tim is able to continue his fitness endeavors and actively participate in his young daughters’ lives.

This season, there will be successes and complications, tears of discomfort and of joy, and in the end, life-changing transformations, both physical and emotional. Along the way, I’ll be right there, sharing my thoughts and support for these incredible people and, of course, to answer any questions you might have about the process.

Catch Skin Tight on TLC on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. CST and be sure to follow along on Twitter using #SkinTight. Have a question or comment about the show? I want to hear from you in the comment section below!
