After Weight Loss Surgery
Men and women who accomplish significant weight loss are to be commended, having overcome a big roadblock in their life. However, while their new figure represents a huge accomplishment, in many cases, they will be faced with new frustrations. This is often due to the loose skin left behind on the body. Significant weight loss generally leaves patients with skin that cannot conform to the new size. Regardless of where the loose skin resides, surgical intervention is needed to remove the issue. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George A. Toledo offers after weight loss surgery for Dallas, TX men and women. This can be a life-changing treatment at Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center and also serves as a final step in their weight loss journey.
"So impressed with Dr. Toledo's rhinoplasty results! And even more impressed with how much my breathing has improved! I didn't even realize how blocked my breathing was until now, it really is life changing. Beautiful results. And a perfect little nose!"- J.D. / Yelp / Mar 24, 2019
"Best Choice for Lower Facelift, Bleph and Breast Reduction!! - I can't say enough good about Dr. Toledo and his staff!! I live in Colorado and booked a procedure with Dr. Toledo for a lower facelift, upper eyes & breast reduction after seeing his before and afters online. I had a bad turkey neck that really bothered me, saggy upper eyes and I wanted a breast reduction. Going there I had expectations and they were completely surpassed. I have a jawline again! And my eyes he did perfectly. The breast reduction/lift is so good I almost cried when I saw them. As soon as the reduction was done all my back pain is gone!! So grateful. You never really know when you choose someone you haven't met and fly there for procedures. Hands down best decision I could have made!! His staff is so caring and makes you feel so comfortable. But equally important is due to his techniques I didn't even need the pain pills. I took over the counter Tylenol just a couple of times and the recovery was so easy and pain free. As you can see by the pictures I could have gone back to work a week after the procedures. He is sooo good at what he does and if I ever get any other procedures it will only be from him! HIGHLY recommend!!!"- L. / RealSelf / Jul 06, 2021
"Dr. Toledo preformed a rhinoplasty on me and he did an excellent job. During my consultation, he was very straight to the point and he was honest with what he could do. He realistically set my expectations with a digital mark up of my nose after surgery. I highly suggest you go to him for your procedure. His staff is also extremely kind and personable."- A.S. / Google / Jun 28, 2021

"I had wanted a rhinoplasty for over 15 years and was always just too nervous to commit. I wish I had met Dr. Toledo back then, his staff made me extremely comfortable and confident with the decision. The procedure and recovery were shockingly painless, thanks to Dr. Toledo's expertise. My nose is natural and more functional than I could have ever dreamed. He gave me very real expectations and I am beyond happy with the result. I would tell anyone not to fear the recovery if you have Dr. Toledo, the whole process start to finish was a breeze and I have my ideal result. Special thanks to Esther, who went above and beyond to answer all my questions, I could not be happier!"- T.S. / Office Visit / Jun 14, 2021
The ideal candidates for skin removal surgery are those who have loose and wrinkled skin due to losing a significant amount of weight. Generally, this issue is noticed early on during weight loss. If you have hanging skin, cosmetic skin removal at Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center can remove the deformity and secure the underlying tissue for a healthy, tighter look. It is important that patients be at their goal weight before undergoing this surgery.
Cosmetic skin removal surgery is generally considered a major treatment. It is performed using general anesthesia and can take about 2-4 hours, depending on how many areas of the body are being treated. Fat removal is usually used during surgery to remove fat, followed by skin excision. This operation does require larger incisions than less invasive cosmetic surgeries so scarring will be associated with this treatment. During surgery, every attempt is made by Dr. Toledo to place the incisions as inconspicuous as possible. Dr. Toledo or a member of his team will give you thorough scar care instructions for an effective outcome.
What to Expect
Once released from the surgery center, it is important to take a few days to recover at home. Tubes may be placed near the incision sites to help control drainage, and medical garments should be worn to help with swelling. On average, it takes roughly 7-10 days to get back to a full work day depending on the treatment plan. This surgery can be life changing for patients with visible results that are immediate. Finally, you will be able to wear the clothes you want and move freely without loose skin slowing you down.
