Surgery after massive weight loss
Skin Removal Surgery
Excess skin is very common after losing a large amount of weight. It may develop over the abdomen, lower back and buttocks, upper arms, and thighs. Surgery is really the only effective way to remove excess skin. There are some non-invasive treatments out there, but most of these are geared toward smaller surface area (e.g. along the jawline), and show minimal improvement at best. Surgery may be done:
- Over the upper arms (brachioplasty)
- Over the thighs (thigh lift)
- To lift the breasts (mastopexy)
- To remove skin from the abdomen
