Why should you consider plastic surgery after massive weight loss in Houston?

Losing weight can be a long and arduous process. After you’ve reached your goal weight, you might be disappointed to find that your body doesn’t look exactly as you pictured it would. Weight loss, especially massive weight loss, can result in loose skin on the arms, neck, back, legs, breasts, chest, hips, groin, and abdomen.

Aside from the aesthetic aspect of loose skin, sagging skin from massive weight loss can result in chafing, sores, infections, rashes, and other skin problems. Excess skin can also have negative effects on self-confidence and body image.

Houston plastic surgery after massive weight loss can correct many problems related to excess skin and can help you finally achieve the body you’ve always dreamed of.

What procedures are often performed after massive weight loss?

If you’re considering plastic surgery after massive weight loss in Houston, there are a variety of procedures that can be combined to give you the body you’ve always wanted.

Tummy Tuck

Sagging skin after massive weight loss is very common in the abdominal area, as this is the location where most people carry excess weight. An abdominoplasty, more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, can be the perfect solution. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon can remove excess skin, tighten abdominal muscles and redistribute fat to give you the body shape you want.

Arm Lift

Also called a brachioplasty, an arm lift procedure will remove excess skin from the upper arm and tighten and smooth the underlying supportive tissues. The result will be well-shaped arms that you can be proud to show off.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift removes excess skin on the inner thigh that results from massive weight loss. The procedure will tighten and firm the areas of the upper thigh and help you achieve the sleek, contoured look you’re looking for.

Lower Body Lift

A lower body lift, also called a belt lipectomy, is a plastic surgery procedure that reshapes the lower body, including areas of the hips, thighs, and buttocks. The surgery can include the removal of excess skin, liposuction of fat deposits and the tightening of muscle groups to give a more sleek and defined shape.

Breasts

As breasts are composed primarily of fatty tissue, they can undergo many changes during massive weight loss. In some cases, breasts may start to severely sag. Maybe you would prefer them to be larger or smaller to fit better with your new body shape. Breast augmentations, breast reductions, and breast lifts are all common components of plastic surgery after massive weight loss.

When is the right time after massive weight loss to consider plastic surgery in Houston?

Although it can be tempting to begin exploring surgery options as soon as you reach your goal weight, you will need to maintain a stable weight for at least six months for moving forward with plastic surgery for massive weight loss. In some cases, your surgeon may recommend a longer waiting period to give your body time to adjust to the massive weight loss. You’ll also need to be in good overall health at the time of the procedure and schedule it at a time when you can take sufficient time to fully recover from the surgery.
