After Massive Weight Loss

Significant weight loss, whether achieved through dieting and exercise or bariatric surgery, is something to be proud of.

Your Post-Weight Loss Procedure

Massive weight loss impacts the body in a variety of ways. While your health can be substantially improved by losing weight, your figure doesn’t always respond to weight loss the way you’d like it to.

People who’ve lost significant amounts of weight often carry excess skin around their abdomens and waists, which prevents their clothing from fitting comfortably. The inner thighs may have lingering fatty tissue or hanging skin, which can cause chafing as you walk or exercise. Finally, the upper arms, back, chin and breasts may sag, retain excess fat or otherwise affect your overall appearance.

Your post-weight loss body contouring can be accomplished in stages, or, if appropriate, in a single surgery that combines multiple procedures. The most common post-weight loss procedures are listed below. However, if you have a concern that is not addressed by these procedures, you can discuss your options with Dr. Campanile during your initial consultation.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, tightens the stomach skin and removes excess fatty tissue for a sleeker, fitter-looking midsection. A tummy tuck can also repair diastasis recti, or abdominal separation, a common issue for post-weight loss individuals.

Drain-Free Tummy Tuck

Dr. Campanile’s C.L.A.S.S. tummy tuck uses his exclusive drain-free technique that combines a traditional tummy tuck with liposuction for additional contouring.

Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular post-weight loss procedures and can be applied virtually anywhere on the body. The surgery removes fat cells from diet and exercise resistant pockets of fat, such as the love handles, thighs, abdomen, back, cankles or a double chin.

Thigh & Body Lift

Also known as a lower body lift, the thigh and body lift uses a customized approach to contour the thighs and buttocks by tightening the skin, repairing loose musculature and removing excess fat.

Arm Lift

A brachioplasty, or arm lift, is commonly used to reduce flabby upper arm tissue by tightening the skin and removing lingering fat for more toned upper arms.

Breast Lift & Augmentation

A breast lift, or mastopexy, repositions the breasts to a higher location on the torso to create a more youthful and perky breast appearance. A breast lift is often combined with breast augmentation to fill out volume while resolving breast sagging at the same time. Dr. Campanile performs breast augmentation using saline or silicone implants, as well as fat transfer breast enlargement.

Breast Reduction

A breast reduction can create lighter, more proportionate breasts once you’ve reached your weight loss goals. In addition to providing a more comfortable clothing fit and reducing physical discomfort, many women feel that breast reduction helps them look and feel sexier.

The Best Results For You

The best post-weight loss results are made possible when you work with your plastic surgeon to develop a customized approach to your needs. For some people, this may mean staging your procedures and following up with additional, nonsurgical treatments like VelaShape™ III to reduce cellulite or UltraShape® to fine-tune your body contouring results.
