Surgeries to address excess skin after significant weight loss
Congratulations on your weight loss! While you may feel triumphant in your battle against obesity, which is an amazing accomplishment, you may still find yourself feeling self-conscious about your body. Unfortunately, when a significant amount of weight is lost, patients will experience excess loose skin. This may be on a particular area of the body, such as the stomach, or everywhere. When weight loss occurs, the skin doesn’t always shrink in comparison, which is why certain procedures such as body lifts were created! Dr. Frank Ferraro of Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey is a Paramus, NJ area professional who proudly offers a variety of lift procedures to help patients feel more comfortable in their new bodies!
Matching your skin with your new body
Excess skin may hang on various areas of the body after significant weight loss has occurred. Because of this, it is important that patients ask their doctor about surgeries that are best for individuals after they have reached their weight loss goals. Removing excess skin can be done everywhere, and our team proudly offers the following procedures for individuals:
- Breast lift
- Arm lift
- Buttocks lift
- Tummy tuck
- Thigh lift
Which procedure is right for me?
Various areas of the body may be affected differently following weight loss. With this in mind, it is important that patients book a consultation appointment and evaluation with Dr. Frank Ferraro to determine which procedures they can benefit from the most. Some patients may have an all-over body lift performed, which touches all areas where excess skin remains, while others may have a specific area of concern, such as the tummy or the thighs. During the examination, patients can voice their desires with the plastic surgeon and find out which procedures will benefit them the most to achieve their goals.
