The next step after bariatric surgery is loose skin removal. After losing 30 lbs. or more, the skin may be permanently stretched. Cosmetic surgery is often needed to trim away the excess skin and fat that remains after reaching a stable weight.

For post-weight loss patients looking to remove loose skin, The Aesthetic Center is proud to offer post-bariatric surgery. Combining a belt lipectomy or tummy tuck with a thigh lift or arm lift puts the finishing touch on your weight-loss results. Our body contouring surgeons have helped thousands of men and women transform their lives with skin removal surgery so they can lead more fulfilling lives.

What is Post-Bariatric Surgery?

After reaching a healthy weight, you may find you have fat and loose skin that remains despite maintaining a healthy diet and exercise program. The abdomen, hips, buttocks, arms, back, and legs are among the most common trouble spots after losing weight from bariatric surgery. With Dr. Otake’s personally customized post-bariatric surgery patients can finally experience relief from the following:

  • Skin folds
  • Stretch marks
  • Stubborn fat

The 4 most common cosmetic surgeries among post-bariatric patients include tummy tuck, body lift, arm lift, and thigh lift.

Tummy Tuck With Liposuction

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is perhaps the most popular cosmetic surgery for men and women that have lost weight. This procedure is designed to remove loose skin, extra fat, and stretch marks on the abdomen.

Liposuction can be added for even better results. Our post-bariatric surgery team has been hand-picked by Dr. Otake for their advanced training and knowledge in tummy tuck surgery. This ensures our patients achieve the best tummy tuck results without the need for a tummy tuck revision surgery.

Body Lift With Liposuction

For patients with excess skin and fat on the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks, a body lift may be the right choice. Also known as a belt lipectomy, this 360-degree operation goes all the way around the waistline (or “beltline”). Our specialist body lift surgeon will trim away the loose skin, then the lower body skin is pulled upward and sutured in place.

This has a nice lifting effect, tightening skin on multiple parts of the lower body in one surgery. Stretch marks around the waistline will be eliminated as well. Liposuction may be added for additional fat reduction on the abdomen, buttocks, legs, and hips if desired. A body lift is more extensive than a tummy tuck. Because it addresses the entire lower body, it requires the skill of an experienced surgeon that is knowledgeable about the body lift procedure. Dr. Otake’s surgical team works harmoniously to deliver exceptional body lift results. With Dr. Otake, your body lift surgery is personalized to your body type.

Arm Lift

The upper arms accumulate fat quite easily. After bariatric surgery, saggy arm skin is a common problem. Arm lift surgery, also known as Brachioplasty or “armplasty”, provides surgical arm skin removal to dramatically tighten loose arm skin. An arm lift after weight loss leaves patients with tight, smooth arm skin.

Our arm lift surgeon will place the incisions neatly hidden on the inside of the arm, removing sagging arm skin and fat from the elbow to the underarm. Arm lift scars tend to heal nicely. Removing loose arm skin gives post-bariatric patients the freedom to wear the clothing they would like with confidence.

Thigh Lift

Saggy inner thigh skin is a frequent complaint among men and women alike. Since the thighs tend to store a lot of body fat, slimming down often leaves the skin loose. Skin folds on the legs can be itchy and uncomfortable, especially when wearing long pants to hide the extra skin. Our thigh lift helps post-bariatric patients struggling with loose thigh skin.

An inner thigh lift provides thigh skin removal with a vertical incision. Thigh liposuction can further sculpt and refine the upper legs for a more shapely, slim, and attractive lower body. An inner thigh lift after weight loss surgery gives our patients the confidence to wear the clothes they like. Not only does it make shopping for pants and shorts easier, but most patients also report increased body confidence after thigh lift surgery.
