Surgery After Weight Loss

Losing a significant amount of weight can help you feel happier and more energetic, but it might just be one step in the journey. When skin loses elasticity by being stretched for a long time, it often does not conform to your smaller figure after a successful diet/exercise program or weight loss surgery. Through post-bariatric plastic surgery, patients from San Antonio and the Austin area regain the confidence they deserve. Our highly trained, board-certified plastic surgeons understand your needs. Dr. Kerr is nationally known for his expertise in these procedures through his involvement with the popular television show Skin Tight on TLC.

Your Body Contouring Plastic Surgery Options

After massive weight loss, for each person is left with a unique combination of concerns with a variety of areas in need of enhancement to restore a contoured appearance. If you have reached a stable weight and are maintaining a healthy lifestyle, the time might be right to visit Synergy Plastic Surgery in Austin for body contouring surgery. Weight loss patients commonly undergo a combination of procedures, which can include one or more of the following lifting and tightening surgeries:

Upper Arm Lift

Arm Lift image

This surgery is highly effective at adding attractive tone and shape to the upper arm, an area plagued by hanging skin (sometimes nicknamed “bat wings”). Arm lift surgery typically requires an incision made along the inside of the upper arm between the shoulder and elbow for a scar that’s generally easy to conceal.

Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery raises the breasts to higher positions on the chest. In most cases, the results can be quite long-lasting. During the surgery, your surgeon may also remove unnecessary tissue in order to improve the shape of the breasts. The surgery also typically includes repositioning the nipples to sit higher on the breasts for complementary results. Read more about breast lift surgery.

Tummy Tuck

This popular procedure is well-known for its ability to improve the contour of the abdomen. Our doctors’ approach allows them to access the deeper layers of the abdomen for a lasting improvement. No detail is spared during abdominoplasty, as your surgeon can even reshape the navel for a beautiful midsection that looks great in — or out of — your favorite clothes. Our doctors may expand a regular tummy tuck for additional skin tightening by using one of the following techniques:

  • Fleur-de-lis tummy tuck includes a vertical incision to tighten the hips and waistline. Our Austin plastic surgeons use this advanced technique for patients with a great deal of extra skin. The results are unlike any other procedure.
  • Extended tummy tuck or belt lipectomy continues the horizontal abdominoplasty incision all the way around to the back to remove more skin than a regular tummy tuck and contour the waist.

Synergy is an amazing establishment. Dr. Mehta was my surgeon for my breast augmentation. He was absolutely amazing. I’m 4 months post op and the girls look great. I couldn’t be happier with the end result. From the consultation to the surgery to all my post op appointments he’s been so thorough, friendly, professional, and informative. If you’re looking for a surgeon visit Dr. Mehta. You won’t be disappointed!

I cannot say enough excellent things about Synergy as a whole, but specifically Dr. Bekanich! She helped bring me “back to life” after breastfeeding my daughter for five months. If you have any fears holding you back as to whether or not to go with this office, know these board-certified plastic surgeons are top notch and are also so caring and kind!

Age 53 (Abdominoplasty) I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Mehta and the staff at Synergy, Round Rock. The office is welcoming, and professional. As a 53 year old I was not sure if having a tummy tuck was the best idea. I went in for my initial consultation and I knew immediately I was having the surgery. Dr. Mehta was honest and told me what to expect from start to finish. After the surgery Dr. Mehta gave my husband his cellphone number just in-case we had concerns or questions. Dr. Mehta went above and beyond my expectations. I can honestly say there is no other surgeon I would recommend. Dr. Mehta I thank you for giving me hips again and a new sense of self confidence.

I have search the internet for great reviews and looked at each plastic surgeon’s photo gallery. I made a list and synergy was on top of that list. I called scheduled consult was scheduled Dr. Mehta. During the consult he address all my concerns and answered all my questions. I felt so comfortable and relaxed with Dr. Mehta and nurse coordinator Amanda. I knew that night I wanted him to do my surgery. all staff at synergy are incredible caring and nice. Dr. Mehta cares so much that he gives you his phone number if you have any problems. I have not had a doctor like that.It has been just 9 weeks after my surgery and the results have been incredible.

Dr. Mehta have really changed my life. I knew it was him since the very first visit. I visited different surgeons but at the end I knew I will choose him because of how comfortable I felt the first visit. Amanda, his patient coordinator and all staff at synergy are incredible caring and nice. Dr. Mehta patiently listened to my concerns and answer all of my questions both in person, over the phone and video call the day of surgery. It has been just two weeks after my surgery and the results have been incredible I can't wait to see my final results. His caring for his patients after surgery in unique ❤️🙏🏽

Margaret, Dr. Crawford's patient coordinator, is the BEST in the business. I have had several consults for my breast reduction, and even had a surgery date scheduled (with non-refundable deposit) with another surgeon, and have decided to move my surgery to Dr. Crawford before I've even met her face to face, thanks to Margaret's incredible service (and lots of research!). I feel so comfortable proceeding with surgery with this team and am ecstatic to see my results!

Margaret (patient coordinator) is THE most helpful person I have ever worked with in this industry. I had a breast reduction scheduled with a deposit at another surgeon, but after speaking to Margaret about having another procedure done at Synergy, I have decided to move the surgery to the Dr that she suggested. Not to mention, she answered my emails at 10:30pm with no hesitation!

Hopefully, I can express how absolutely pleased I’ve been with Synergy. Dr. Blagg must be the best BA surgeon in the country. I was blown away by the before and after results before I met with him. But he performed what I can only equate to a miracle on me personally. Beforehand, I met with other top surgeons in Austin, and they all truly pale in comparison to Dr. Blagg. From start to finish, he was caring and confident, arguably the two best characteristics of a surgeon, and he delivered results that exceeded every expectation. The frequent follow ups and wonderfully thoughtful nurses will make you feel more welcome than your own home. And I definitely cannot fail to mention one of the nurses in particular, Mariah Gilkey. She is a pure ray of sunshine that will shower you with so many compliments, you’ll be questioning if you even need surgery. She, specifically, made the entire experience exponentially better than I could’ve imagined. My only regret with Synergy is that, despite whatever I’ve paid them, I’ll never be able to adequately repay the life-changing results that they’ve given me. Thank you.

If I could give more stars, I would. Dr. Crawford and her team are amazing. From start to finish, everything went so well. I’m almost 4 months post of a BA, I am so happy I went with Dr. Crawford’s recommendation. She is honest, respectful of your concerns and questions and I felt extremely confident after my consultation. I am pretty petite and 265CC was a perfect fit for me! From the consultations, to surgery 10/10. I would highly recommend Synergy Plastic Surgery! Thank you Dr. Crawford for your amazing skills and personality! Thank you!

I’m super impressed with Synergy Plastic Surgery’s ability to listen and sympathize with their patients. My Patient coordinator, Margaret, has helped me tremendously with my surgery process and treats me as if I’m her own daughter. She is personable, and does everything in her power to make every patient feel taken care of. I called her struggling with some concerns of mine and she completely eased my stress and worries. My surgeon, Dr. Crawford, has a heart of gold and unmeasurable compassion. It’s truly admirable to have a doctor that is already putting so much time into her own busy job then to still dedicate time to volunteer and community work. I’ve watched her through social media change the life of children and others, and that makes me proud to call her my doctor. I’m excited to continue my surgical journey with Dr. Crawford!

I chose Synergy a few years ago to perform my breast augmentation procedure because when I was looking at their website before and after photos, not only did I like the way the patients looked after their surgeries, it was the one website that had someone monitoring the site and popped up and asked if I had any questions. They also had an awesome special running and were super nice when I called to ask for more details as several other places were not that I called. I decided to book a consultation with Dr. Ross Blagg because I watched some of his videos on the site and also on Instagram and really liked his personality and after photos. He seemed to really know what he was talking about and cared about his patients. He was the same way when I met him in person and I put the deposit down that day after our consultation. It took me almost two years to finally go through with my surgery due to life events and the pandemic, but I was finally ready in Nov 2020 and they even honored the price I was originally quoted! The nursing staff was so nice and warm when I arrived for my surgery and got me calm and ready for my surgery. I was nervous but not scared because I knew I was in good hands. The surgery was so quick and when I woke up I had very minimal pain and felt like I was ready to go within 20 minutes! The pain the next few days was no where near what I imagined it would be, and I definitely recommend this surgery with Synergy Plastic Surgery if you are feeling hesitant about breast augmentation in general. They will be the best ones to take care of you. It has been almost 4 months since my surgery now and I absolutely love my results! They are almost completely dropped now and my scars are also less apparent already! I can't wait to show them off at the beach soon!! 😀

Where to even begin in expressing how utterly happy I am to have discovered Synergy and Dr. Crawford. I recently lost 95 pounds and unfortunately was left with loose skin that could not be fixed just by working out. I requested in person consultations from 3 places, one being Synergy. I was able to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Crawford very quickly. My problem areas were my arms, stomach, legs, and breasts. Immediately within meeting Dr. Crawford, I knew she was going to be my surgeon. She was extremely thorough, listened to what I was wanting to achieve, but was also very kind and empathic. Walking out of the appointment I did tell them full disclosure I wanted to at least follow through with my other consultations, but I knew I was going to choose Dr. Crawford. My other consultations did not give me that same connection and warmth, and their pricing was absolutely not comparable. The staff at Synergy continued to follow up with me, made sure I did not have any questions, and even told me if I went elsewhere they were happy for me. Side bar - both the Round Rock and Austin facilities are beautiful and very clean, and every single employee there is kind and courteous. It was a no brainer in ultimately deciding to choose Dr. Crawford. I opted to do a breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and arm lift and am now 2 weeks post op. The morning of surgery I got extremely nervous (which is so not normal for me) and Dr. Crawford just sat with me and let me take as much time as I needed before we proceeded with surgery - another moment in which her qualities as not only a surgeon but as a person far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Crawford has continued to follow up with me throughout these 2 weeks and I genuinely cannot express how thrilled I am with the results already. Recovery has been a breeze (I was literally walking on my own day 1), my incisions are as flawless as they can be all things considered and I accredit that to Dr. Crawford’s talent and precision. I already have this newfound sense of confidence that I lost when I had gained the weight, and even when I lost it and had to face that new body I was left with. To anyone reading this, save yourself the time and book with Dr. Crawford. The pricing is fair and less than the other places I spoke to. You are not, I repeat you are NOT going to find someone like her elsewhere. She is so genuine, and really listens and cares about her patients. Aside from being the most genuine and kind Doctor I have ever had, her work is absolutely flawless. I really cannot stress enough, even without being fully healed how amazing I look and feel. This was one of the best things I have ever done, and would do it 100 times over, with Dr. Crawford, and Dr. Crawford only. I am very much looking forward to booking my leg lift as soon as I am healed and cleared, and would never even consider another person. Dr. Crawford, thank you for everything; you have literally changed my life and are my angel. P.S - Synergy and Dr. Crawford have not asked me to leave a review. I am doing this because her talent, work, personality, just everything about her deserves this and to anyone shopping around or are on the fence, do yourself the favor and meet with her. You will not regret it!

BEST RESULTS I'VE EVER HAD! I went pensively to get Botox & fillers/lip injections at the referral of a friend who looks amazing. I have had Botox before at other places & because I have a small forehead, have ended up in tears with hooded eyes. Most of my deep wrinkles are in my forehead. My appt was with Mara & from the first moment I could tell this wasn't just a job for her. It's her passion. She listened to EVERYTHING I said (which was a lot), spent time really studying my face & clarifying what I had said I wanted to accomplish. I was adamant no drooping of my eyes but PLEASE try to get some of the wrinkles out of my forehead. And I was also very specific about my lips looking natural but filled back in. She explained everything to me, was honest about what she felt she could accomplish in one sitting & I have to tell you I am shocked & amazed at how awesome the results are!! I have received more compliments in the last few weeks about how great my skin looks, asking about my face cream, how rested I look, and how pretty my lipstick is. That tells me she did EXACTLY what I asked. Natural & subtle. And the deep wrinkles on my forehead are almost completely gone!! I cannot say enough how much I trust her with my face/skin. I am genuinely impressed with her skills & knowledge. I have referred friends who are just as picky as I am & will continue to refer people as I truly believe they will be just as pleased with their results. Thank you Mara & Synergy for taking years off my face & giving me back much needed confidence.

Where do I even begin?! I received 6 other consults throughout the U.S. for my MMO before going to Synergy. After loosing more than 120lbs, I had very unique needs but realistic expectations. Within minutes of meeting Dr. Blagg, I knew he was my surgeon! We spent nearly an hour discussing my options and ultimately coming up with a surgical plan that we both felt was best. (Not many surgeons do that!) From the consult, to pre-op, surgery and post-op, the experience was phenomenal. The day of surgery was a breeze from what I can remember lol. Dr. Blagg called me to check on me though I vaguely remember it because of the anesthesia and pain meds. My recovery was so easy. I was up and moving the next day with minimal assistance. I'm now 3 months post op and couldn't be happier with my results as they exceeded my expectations. Dr. Blagg has great bedside manner, a sense of humor and not bad on the eyes either. He is genuinely a good person and you feel that in his presence. Janice, his coordinator, is so sweet and informative. At every point of my journey, I felt safe (which is important in the current climate). I literally don't have a single bad thing to say which is unusual because I'm very critical. I'm so glad I trusted Dr. Blagg for my Mommy Makeover. I'll definitely be going back for all of my future cosmetic/plastics needs! If you're considering Synergy, do it, you won't regret it!

Thigh/Buttock Lift

Thigh Lift image

After massive weight loss, men and women alike often complain that excess skin around their thighs hampers their mobility and causes discomfort. Thigh and buttock lift removes this skin and tightens the thighs and buttocks for a proportionate, toned result that improves how you look, feel, and move.

Liposuction

Although the brunt of your weight loss is likely complete, liposuction can selectively improve and smooth smaller areas of the body that may still bulge with residual fat deposits. Liposuction requires very small incisions and can be easily added to other procedures. Read more about liposuction.
