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 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

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.

Thigh/Buttock Lift

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.
