Getting Rid of Loose Skin After Weight Loss

Losing weight is a major accomplishment that we want to feel good about. Unfortunately, some of our successes can be hidden underneath layers of loose and sagging skin that doesn’t seem to bounce back with the rest of your body. Over-the-counter products can only do so much to tighten skin and, oftentimes, plastic surgery procedures are needed to help people finally see the body they worked so hard for.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck in Phoenix, AZ

One of the first things our patients tell us they dreamt about when beginning their weight loss journeys was being able to show off a tight, toned midsection. In reality, they’ve been left with a toned core covered with loose skin. A tummy tuck is a surgical cosmetic procedure that not only gets rid of the excess skin and tissue around the midsection, it also tightens the muscles in your abdominal wall. A tummy tuck can be performed with liposuction to get rid of those last stubborn pockets of fat that have been holding you back.

Arm Lift

When beginning our weight loss journeys, we often don’t think about the less prominent areas we tend to gain weight. After losing a large amount of weight, our patients are surprised by the amount of loose skin around their arms that chafes and prevents them from living comfortably. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical cosmetic procedure that removes this excess skin for sleek, smooth arms that don’t get in the way.

Neck Lift

The neck is another area that our patients don’t really think about when they think of stretched or loose skin. Loose and stretched skin around the neck and face can often drag our appearance down and make us look older than we actually are. A neck lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that lifts the neck and chin area for a smoother, more youthful look. Many of our patients combine their neck lift with a facelift to achieve an overall refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

Breast Lift

As we gain weight, our breasts get bigger. And, as we lose weight, our breasts start to get respectively smaller. Your smaller breasts may better fit your new frame, but the stretched skin around your chest is making them sag and hang. A breast lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that removes this excess skin and lifts the breasts to a more youthful and perky position without adding or taking away from their overall volume. If you’d like to enhance the size of your breasts, we’re more than happy to combine your breast lift with a breast augmentation for ultimate curves.

Body Lift

If you’ve looked at the surgeries above and thought to yourself “I want all of those,” a body lift may be what you’re looking for. A body lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that aims to remove excess skin from all points around the body. Typically broken up between and upper body lift and a lower body lift, patients who remove their excess skin from multiple parts of the body at once cut down on the cost of their procedure and their overall recovery period.
