Plastic Surgery After Weight Loss
Complete your transformation.
After major weight loss, many men and women are disappointed to discover that they now possess loose and sagging skin that no longer conforms to their new bodies. When this occurs, Dr. Sukkar offers a number of body contouring procedures that are designed to give you the smooth and firm shape you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
Are you a candidate for plastic surgery after weight loss?
It’s very common for patients to suffer from unsightly excess skin after bariatric surgery, pregnancy or weight loss through diet and exercise. It occurs because your skin loses its elasticity as it accommodates your larger frame, and thus remains stretched out even once you achieve a smaller size.
If you’ve lost a substantial amount of weight and are suffering with excess skin, there’s a very strong chance that body contouring after weight loss may be in your best interest. To be considered an ideal candidate, your weight needs to be stable, as losing or gaining pounds in the future will affect your results. It’s also important that you have a positive outlook and realistic expectations, and are committed to leading a healthy lifestyle moving forward.
