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.

Ideal Candidates

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.

Surgical Technique

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.
