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.

"Dr Toledo is INCREDIBLE. I seriously could not recommend him enough. I had my rhinoplasty 6 weeks ago and it was the BEST experience. First and foremost, when my mom and I went to my initial visit, Dr. Toledo could tell I was nervous as I’m getting married in September, but he assured me my nose would look amazing after 6months.. he then said it would look great by 6 weeks. I was hesitant to believe him, but it’s now been 6weeks and I am shocked at how wonderful my nose looks. Dr Toledo’s approach is very natural and he doesn’t make you look like a different person, which is a sign of a good surgeon. He’s done thousands of rhinoplasties, so I knew this was nbd for him and I felt very good with my decision. The procedure itself was easy, only took 2 hours and I had minimal pain—I didn’t have to take any pain meds and was back to normal within a few days. Dr Toledo is truly an expert and I’m already so happy with my results."- E.P. / Google / Apr 20, 2023
"Rhinoplasty 10 day ago changed my life! It was perfect - I went to several consultations with other surgeons including in Beverly Hills and Texas! I've wanted a rhinoplasty for YEARS. When I found myself in Dr. Toledo's office I INSTANTLY knew he was the one. He asked me what my goals were and effortlessly showed me what he could achieve. When I saw the simulation he created-- it was exactly what I wanted. I paid and booked my surgery right away. I felt comfortable throughout the entire process. I am 10 days post op and LOVING my results. When he took the cast off I CRIED. It was perfect. The recovery itself wasn't bad at all! I didn't bruise or swell too badly. Dr. Toledo is by far the king of rhinoplasties in the DFW area so consider that when making your decision. His skill and experience speaks for itself, not to mention his results! I put my full trust in him without hesitation and would do it again and again. Book your consultation! You owe it to yourself to have your rhinoplasty done by the most experienced doc. I'm so excited to see my nose as time goes on! It's only going to get better. LOVE YA TOLEDO, THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES OVER"- E. / RealSelf / Apr 09, 2023
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.
