Plastic Surgery after Dramatic Weight Loss

Losing weight, regardless of how much or how little, is not an easy feat, and you did it! But, for some people who have lost weight, they may still be left with a body image that makes them feel self-conscious. What gives? Well, for starters, losing a large amount of weight may result in sagging or loose skin, which no amount of exercise will correct or diminish. Thankfully, body contouring in Manhattan may be the right option for you.

What is body contouring?

Body contouring may use a combination of procedures to help remove excess skin, and even those last few stubborn pounds of fat, as well as lift and tighten sagging skin as a result of dramatic weight loss.

What type of body contouring procedures are available in Manhattan?

At Preminger Plastic Surgery, our boutique plastic surgery practice offers various procedures to help firm up and tighten your sagging skin. The procedure that is right for you will be chosen based on your individual need, the amount of skin and/or fat that needs to be removed, and your desires for an improved body image.

Dr. B. Aviva Preminger, MD, NYC female surgeon, offers lower body lifts and arm lifts. During your consultation with Dr. Preminger, she will determine which procedures are right for you. Here are the key components of each of these procedures.

Lower body lifts focus on the buttocks, abdomen, and thigh region of the body. These areas are most often affected by dramatic weight loss, leaving sagging or loose skin as a result. During the procedure, Manhattan’s plastic surgeon Dr. Preminger removes the excess skin from each of these regions of the body. The buttocks will have an improved size, slope, and appearance. The abdominal region will be flattened. And the thighs will receive a reduced circumference as a result of the excess tissue removal.

Arm lifts help get rid of what is known as “bat wings,” the area under the upper arm that tends to become loose and flabby with weight loss. Removing the excess skin also allows for removal of excess fat deposits, which results in smoother, tighter looking arms.

In some cases, liposuction may also be part of your treatment plan. The purpose of liposuction in Manhattan is to remove excess deposits of fat, eliminating those last few stubborn pounds.

For some individuals, less invasive body contouring procedures such as BodyTite™ or CoolSculpting may provide the toned and tightened look you desire following your weight loss, but without the downtime of surgical procedures. Keep in mind, however, that these two procedures are generally ideal for patients who have minimal amounts of loose or sagging skin.
