What Can Be Done After Massive Weight Loss?

Significant weight loss can leave behind stretched, sagging skin afterwards. While those who have worked hard to reach these goals are happy to be in an ideal weight range, they are often too shy or embarrassed to show off their results because of this excess skin that remains. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg in Hattiesburg, MS, men and women who have undergone massive weight loss can find solutions with the body lift procedures available at our office.

What Is a Body Lift?

A body lift procedure is typically performed after a patient has experienced significant weight loss. The fast loss of fat can leave skin and underlying tissue with a sagging appearance. A body lift procedure is a series of surgeries that can help remove excess skin, tighten muscles, and redistribute fat for a smoother, healthier-looking body contour–throughout the body. The results are dramatic and can make patients feel more confident with their new look.

Where Is the Body Lift Performed?

Dr. William Reno III and Paul Talbot of the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg can perform the body lift on various areas of the body, which may include the:

  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Legs

What Can I Expect After the Procedure?

With proper post-operative care and instructions from our surgeons in Hattiesburg, MS, body lifts can produce dramatic improvements in physical appearance and self-esteem. However, body lifting is not appropriate for everyone. It is best used for those with significant, massive weight loss that has left them with excess, sagging skin. This can become problematic as some patients may experience irritation of the skin, especially in the folds that have developed with this type of weight loss. It can also lead to infections between the skin as well. During a consultation appointment with Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot, you can determine if you are a proper fit for this or other surgical treatments to improve the body contours after extensive weight loss.
