Skin Removal Surgery
Following significant weight loss, many patients struggle with excess skin on the abdomen, breasts, back, arms, buttocks, and thighs that may hang and disrupt their daily life. Whether caused by lifestyle changes, diet and exercise, or bariatric surgery, patients deserve to feel good after losing weight. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer excess skin removal surgery to allow patients to feel more comfortable and confident in their own skin after losing weight and can even occur simply from aging as collagen production lessens. Excess skin removal is performed during body lift surgery to accentuate both the upper and lower body.
What Is Excess Skin Removal Surgery?
When we gain weight, our skin stretches to accommodate our new size. The longer the skin is stretched, the more elasticity it loses over time. This means, even after we lose weight, the skin may never fully stretch back. Loose skin is common in patients after an extreme weight fluctuation, as well as after having children.
Excess skin removal surgery combats loss of skin elasticity by trimming away the excess skin and re-draping it over the treatment area for a more sculpted appearance. This procedure is not only performed for cosmetic reasons, but for clinical ones as well. Excess skin can limit movement and encourage bacteria growth that can lead to skin rashes and infections. At Astra Plastic Surgery we specialize in excess skin removal to help patients feel like a new and improved version of themselves.
What Are The Benefits Of Excess Skin Removal Surgery?
Excess skin removal surgery has many benefits that can change both the way patients look and feel. It is important to note that excess skin removal is not a weight loss surgery, rather it targets excess skin and fat left behind after weight loss. The benefits of excess skin removal surgery can be long-lasting and life-changing for many patients.
