Here is a 62-year-old male following a skin removal surgery to correct his body contour.
Skin removal surgery is often the final step for someone committed to a new, healthier lifestyle. Following significant weight loss, people will observe a massive decrease in body fat, often resulting in major skin redundancy.
People who have undergone weight loss surgery, such as a gastric sleeve, will often experience 100 pounds or more losses after the first few years. Unfortunately, no amount of dieting or working out will make their skin recoil to give them their final dream body.
At around 40 years of age, our skin loses its ability to recoil back to its original shape and will remain loose following drastic weight loss.
This is extremely frustrating for someone who has made such an incredible transformation and commitment to a healthy life. Luckily for you, SurgiSculpt experts in skin removal surgery!
What is Skin Removal Surgery?
Skin removal surgery involves the excision of redundant skin circumferentially. It is an extremely large surgery and should only be performed by an experienced plastic surgeon. Excess skin will be found in the breasts, thighs, butts, arms, stomach, and back.
Therefore, SurgiSculpt surgeons meticulously appreciate all these areas before creating a skin removal plan that will transform your body to match your desired outcome.
Is Skin Removal Surgery Right for Me?
This surgery is a major commitment, and several factors should be considered before deciding. First, following your drastic weight loss experience, you need to hold a stable weight for at least six months.
The other important factor in this decision is whether or not you are interested in having children. To preserve your new aesthetic following post-bariatric surgery, it is heavily recommended that you only have this surgery once you are done having kids.
Skin Removal Surgery Outcomes
A circumferential surgery such as this will often involve a recovery period of about six weeks. Following surgery, patients can expect their results to be stable at around 6-12 months when all the swelling and redness from incision lines have resolved. Staff provides all their patients with a detailed recovery schedule involving at least five lymphatic massages that aid in healing and get you to your desired look sooner!
