Your Post-Weight Loss Procedure

Massive weight loss impacts the body in a variety of ways. While your health can be greatly improved by losing weight, your figure doesn’t always respond to weight loss the way you’d like it to.

People who’ve lost significant amounts of weight often carry excess skin around their abdomens and waists, which prevents their clothing from fitting comfortably. The inner thighs may have lingering fatty tissue or hanging skin, which can cause chafing as you walk or exercise. Finally, the upper arms, back, chin and breasts may sag, retain excess fat or otherwise affect your overall appearance.

Your post-weight loss body contouring can be accomplished in stages, or, if appropriate, in a single surgery that combines multiple procedures. The most common post-weight loss procedures are listed below. However, if you have a concern that is not addressed by these procedures, you can discuss your options with Dr. Campanile during your initial consultation.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, tightens the stomach skin and removes excess fatty tissue for a sleeker, fitter-looking midsection. A tummy tuck can also repair diastasis recti, or abdominal separation, a common issue for post-weight loss individuals.

Drain-Free Tummy Tuck

Dr. Campanile’s C.L.A.S.S. tummy tuck uses his exclusive drain-free technique that combines a traditional tummy tuck with liposuction for additional contouring.

Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular post-weight loss procedures and can be applied virtually anywhere on the body. The surgery removes fat cells from diet and exercise-resistant pockets of fat, such as the love handles, thighs, abdomen, back, cankles or a double chin.

Thigh & Lower Body Lift

The thigh and body lift procedures use customized approaches to contour the thighs and buttocks by tightening the skin, repairing loose musculature and removing excess fat.

Arm Lift

A brachioplasty, or arm lift, is commonly used to reduce flabby upper arm tissue by tightening the skin and removing lingering fat for more toned upper arms.

Breast Lift & Augmentation

A breast lift, or mastopexy, repositions the breasts to a higher location on the torso to create a more youthful and perky breast appearance. A breast lift is often combined with breast augmentation to fill out volume while resolving breast sagging at the same time. Dr. Campanile performs breast augmentation using saline or silicone implants, as well as fat transfer breast enlargement.

Breast Reduction

A breast reduction can create lighter, more proportionate breasts once you’ve reached your weight loss goals. In addition to providing a more comfortable clothing fit and reducing physical discomfort, many women feel that breast reduction helps them look and feel more confident.

The Best Results

Dr. Campanile will work with you to develop a customized approach according to your needs. For some people, this may mean staging your procedures and following up with additional, nonsurgical treatments like VelaShape™ III to reduce cellulite or UltraShape® to fine-tune your body contouring results.

After Weight Loss FAQs

What can I do about loose skin after weight loss?

There are a number of different body contouring procedures that can help eliminate loose skin and stubborn fat pockets. And many of these procedures can be combined into one surgery to maximize your results. Some people may opt to have their post-weight loss body contouring procedures done in stages if there are multiple areas of cosmetic concern.

After major weight loss, excess skin can gather around the abdomen, waist, thighs or upper arms. Dr. Campanile can target these areas to remove loose, hanging skin, while also addressing any stubborn fat that lingers on the body through liposuction.

Why do I still have fatty areas after losing weight?

It’s very common for some fat to remain after a weight loss, even if you’ve been working out and eating right. This could be the result of one or more factors such as age, genetics, hormones and your metabolism. Stress can even cause you to store weight around your abdomen. The good news is that liposuction is a very effective way to remove this kind of stubborn fat. Liposuction can be done almost anywhere on the body.

How soon after my weight loss can I have body contouring surgery?

It’s important to let your weight stabilize after a significant weight loss. If you had a surgical weight loss procedure, you’ll have to be entirely healed and get the all-clear from your weight loss surgeon. You should hold off until your weight has remained steady for several months before having any kind of body contouring. It can be difficult to wait, but your results will be better and probably last longer.

What if I gain the weight back after skin removal surgery?

If you gain back a significant amount of weight after having body contouring procedures, your results will be affected. Your skin may become stretched out again, and your results may be reversed. That’s why it’s important to make healthy lifestyle choices in order to maintain your results. If you exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet, you should be able to enjoy your beautiful outcome for many years.
