Bariatric Plastic Surgery Procedures After Weight Loss

After massive weight loss there may be excess skin and fat in multiple areas of the body. Body contouring procedures such as panniculectomy and thigh lift will remove the sagging skin and fat and will provide a more toned shape to your body. There are a number of different procedures that can be done to target your specific problem areas. If you are still actively losing weight, we recommend you postpone any body contouring procedures until your weight has been stable for at least 6 months. See before & after photos of panniculectomy and thigh lift below.

What is panniculectomy?

Panniculectomy is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the lower abdomen, leaving planned abdominal scars. It is not a treatment for being overweight. Obese individuals who intend to lose weight should postpone all forms of body contouring surgery until they have reached a stable weight. Panniculectomy can be combined with other body contouring surgery, including suction-assisted lipectomy in other areas, or other elective surgeries. Panniculectomy does not correct the abdominal muscles or other contour irregularities. It is usually performed when a pannus, or overhang of abdominal tissue, is present.
