Massive weight loss surgery combines specialized surgeries tailored to your individual needs. Different body areas can be addressed in a single operation, including the lower body, midsection, and breasts, to help you fully reap the benefits of your incredible weight loss journey.
Is Massive Weight Loss Surgery right for you ?
Massive weight loss surgery is an excellent option for patients who have completed their weight loss journey but suffer from excess loose skin or skin folds in their chest, midsection, arms, and/or lower body.
During the initial consultation, your surgeon will provide a comprehensive exam and discuss your goals to understand if this procedure is correct for you.
Massive Weight Loss Surgery Options
There are many different procedure options when planning your massive weight loss surgery. Some of the most common procedures include:
Breast Lift: Tightens and lifts breasts for a perkier appearance for women or a flatter appearance for men.
Arm Lift: Lifts and reshapes the upper arm for a more tightened, contoured appearance.
Tummy Tuck: Tightens abdominal muscles and eliminates loose/excess skin and fat.
Liposuction: Eliminates specific areas of stubborn fat for a slimmer, more balanced physique.
Brazilian Butt Lift: Injects your natural fat from another area into the buttocks for a lifted, rounded appearance.
A patient care concierge will guide you through the entire consultation process, which can be attended in person or virtually. During the consultation, your surgeon will learn about your goals, answer any questions, and perform an examination to create a personalized surgical plan. Because a massive weight loss surgery typically involves more than one procedure, the preparation, and measurements can be extensive. Your surgical team will work to make a plan that best accomplishes your body goals, and you will be matched with a surgical coordinator who will walk you through each step of the preoperative process.
Your specific procedure will depend on what surgeries are included. Incisions will always be carefully placed where scarring will be inconspicuous and hidden under clothing. To close the incisions, your surgeon will use a unique layered suturing technique that decreases tension during the healing process and allows minimal scarring.
Most massive weight loss surgery patients experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas. Compression garments may be used to help reduce these symptoms while healing takes place. Patients usually can return to work and regular activities within two weeks, but strenuous activities like exercise should be avoided for six 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.
