Body Contouring after Massive Weight Loss

North Raleigh Plastic Surgery
Welcome to North Raleigh Plastic Surgery. Our team of highly trained and compassionate healthcare professionals deliver excellent surgical results in a state-of-the-art medical facility.

Massive weight loss, whether it was accomplished through lifestyle changes or bariatric surgery, is an amazing achievement! But once the weight is off, you still may not have the figure you envisioned due to excess skin. When stretched beyond its capacity, like during massive weight gain, skin loses its elasticity and cannot bounce back when the weight is lost. With body contouring, Dr. Ortiz, board certified and world-renowned plastic surgeon can help you complete your weight loss journey and lose your excess skin.

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring after massive weight loss is personalized to each patient, depending on your body’s needs. The procedure may include some or all of the following surgeries: facelift, breast lift, arm lift, tummy tuck, body lift surgery, or thigh lift.

With each of these procedures, excess skin will be removed from the area, the underlying tissue will be smoothed, and the final result will be part of a tighter, more contoured figure. During your consultation, you will discuss each of these options and surgical procedures with Dr. Ortiz to decide which is right for you. If you have recently had bariatric surgery, Dr. Ortiz will consult with your physician to discuss your health and your upcoming procedure(s). It is best to wait 1-2 years after bariatric surgery to consider body contouring and your weight loss must be stabilized before you’re eligible. Continuing to lose weight after body contouring will cause sagging skin to reappear.

Celebrate your weight loss and finally be free from sagging skin with body contouring. Dr. Ortiz has two decades of experience helping women get the figure they’ve always wanted. From your first consultation to your final appointment, he makes sure you’re informed and at ease.
