Excess Skin Removal

Excess skin removal is a surgical procedure that tightens loose or sagging skin that may appear due to weight loss, pregnancy, age, or more. Restoring skin firmness can instantly restore a smooth, youthful contour to various body areas.

Pre and Post Operative Instructions

Excessive skin removal surgery is an excellent option for many patients who suffer from excess loose skin or skin folds in their chest, midsection, arms, and/or lower body. When drastic changes happen to our body, our skin sometimes does not have time to conform to our new body contour, resulting in a body profile overshadowed by extra skin. 

We recommend patients wait until they have maintained a stable and desired weight for at least six months before undergoing this procedure for maximum results. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will provide a comprehensive exam and discuss your goals to understand if this procedure is correct for you.


A firmer, more smooth body contour


Loss of inches in problem areas like thighs, arms, and midsection


More comfortable fit to clothing


No more irritation and rashes due to skin rubbing together

During surgery

Incisions are placed in the natural folds of the skin and other inconspicuous areas whenever possible. Through the openings, your surgeon will remove the excess skin to better contour the treatment area. To close the incisions, your surgeon will use a unique layered suturing technique that minimizes tension to minimize scarring.

After surgery

Your recovery will vary, depending on the specific areas addressed and the amount of skin removed. Patients typically experience some soreness, swelling, and numbness in the area treated that subside within a couple of weeks.

Your surgeon will provide specific instructions for optimal post-operative care, including an advanced scar management protocol after the initial healing period. Your surgical team is always available and will closely monitor your recovery in the weeks and months following surgery.
