At Wright Plastic Surgery, we celebrate your weight loss victory but also acknowledge the often unforeseen result—excess, sagging skin.
Whether you lost weight with semaglutide shots or another method, our specialized surgical procedures remove loose skin and refine your hard-earned results. Let’s explore how we can help you fully embrace the new you.
Weight Loss and Skin Elasticity
Rapid weight loss often leads to excess loose skin. This occurs because your skin has stretched over time and lacks the elasticity to conform to your reduced body size.
Psychological Impact of Excess Skin After Weight Loss
For many, saggy, loose skin after weight loss is disheartening. It can affect self-esteem and body image, often overshadowing the joy of weight loss success.
Surgical Solutions at Wright Plastic Surgery
Recognizing that each body is unique and each weight loss journey is personal, we provide a range of procedures to address loose skin and put the finishing touches on your weight loss achievements.
Arm Lift: An arm lift tightens and reshapes the upper arms, addressing loose skin that can occur after weight loss.
Thigh Lift: This procedure reduces excess skin for smoother skin and improved contours. The result? Firmer, more youthful-looking thighs.
Body Lift: This comprehensive procedure targets the abdomen, buttocks, waist, hips, and thighs in one surgery for a dramatic transformation of the mid and lower body.
A tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area, resulting in a smoother, contoured midsection.
A breast lift raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue, restoring an uplifted breast profile.
A facelift elevates and firms sagging skin in the face and neck area for a dramatically rejuvenated facial appearance.
Many patients complement their facelift results with nonsurgical treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers. These injectable treatments smooth lines and wrinkles and add subtle volume and softness where needed.
Preparing for Your Surgery
Preparation for your surgery begins with a health evaluation to ensure you’re both physically and mentally ready for a cosmetic procedure. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your concerns and customize a surgical plan to achieve your goals.
What to Expect During Recovery
The nature of the surgery and personal healing factors will influence your recovery. Patients can typically stand and take short, gentle walks on the day of their procedure. Most return to work and light activities in about 2 to 4 weeks and resume complete activities in 6 to 8 weeks.
Swelling may take 3 to 6 months to subside completely. As you recover, you’ll gradually see your body’s new contours take shape.
