Body contouring after weight loss If you have lost a significant amount of weight through bariatric surgery or diet and exercise efforts, the team at the Breslow Center commends you. By overcoming obesity, you have improved your health and appearance and added years to your life.

One of the common drawbacks of massive weight loss — especially if it happened rapidly — is leftover loose skin that hangs off of the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, thighs, breasts, arms and face. This is unsightly, can cause health problems and might severely affect self-confidence.

Drs. Gary Breslow and Jordan Farkas can help. They offer a selection of plastic surgery procedures specifically designed to eliminate loose skin and improve the body contours. These procedures are a wonderful way to enhance life after massive weight loss. For many patients, body contouring is the final piece of the weight loss journey.

Before our doctors explain the available options, they will highlight a few advantages of post-bariatric body contouring.

Creates More Noticeable Results

Often, the folds of loose skin are so prominent that they conceal the results of massive weight loss. You might see excess skin as a reminder of your old life and associate it with the unpleasant emotions you experienced when you were obese (e.g., anxiety, depression, low self-confidence). By removing this skin and enhancing your body contours, our plastic surgeons can help you enjoy the results of your hard work and dedication.

Reduces Health Problems with Excess Skin

Excess saggy skin and skin folds aren’t simply a cosmetic concern, they are also problematic health-wise. Loose skin is prone to irritation, infection and rashes. It can also be difficult to clean. Surgically removing this loose skin is the best way to resolve these health problems.

Sparks Motivation to Maintain Results

Studies have shown that people that undergo post-bariatric body contouring are more likely to maintain their weight loss results through healthy lifestyle habits. This is linked to the point we highlighted about making your results noticeable. When you can clearly see your new physique, you will want to maintain it by making good choices about your diet and activity level.

What Are My Options?

Drs. Breslow and Farkas offer a range of procedures to improve different areas around the body. These procedures require a lot of effort to remove excess skin and enhance the body’s contours, but the results are tremendously rewarding. Our doctors will suggest a plan of treatment based on your specific areas of concern. Options include:
