After Weight Loss Surgery

Congratulations on losing a significant amount of weight. This is an impressive and great achievement. Unfortunately, while your weight loss represents a huge accomplishment, you may still be frustrated with your body thanks to loose, hanging skin throughout your body. Fast or significant weight loss commonly leaves you with skin that cannot conform to your body's new shape. Regardless of where the hanging skin resides, plastic surgery is needed to correct the issue. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary J. Rosenbaum offers after weight loss surgery to Miami Beach, FL men and women. This can be a life-changing treatment at Gary J. Rosenbaum, M.D., P.A. that serves as a lasting step in your weight loss journey.

Ideal Candidates

The ideal candidates for after weight loss surgery are those who have hanging folds of skin due to losing a significant amount of weight. Most often, this issue is visible early on as you lose weight. If you are challenged by loose skin, after weight loss surgery at Gary J. Rosenbaum, M.D., P.A. can eliminate the excess skin, then secure the tissue and remaining skin for a healthy, tighter look. You should be at or close to your goal weight before considering skin tightening surgery.

Surgical Technique

Plastic surgery to remove loose skin is usually performed as an inpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility. It is performed using general anesthesia and on average takes about 3 – 7 hours, depending on the combination of procedures in your treatment plan. Some liposuction is usually integrated during surgery to remove pockets of fat, followed by the surgical removal of skin. This surgery does make larger incisions than most other cosmetic surgeries, so you will have scarring. During your surgery, every attempt is made by Dr. Rosenbaum to make the incisions as inconspicuous as possible. Dr. Rosenbaum or a member of his team will give you detailed post-surgical instructions so your incisions heal to flat, thin scars that blend as much as possible into your normal skin.

What to Expect

Once released from our care, it is important to allow a week or two to recover at home. Tubes may be implanted near the incision sites to help control drainage and medical garments should be worn to assist with swelling. For the average person, it takes roughly 2 – 4 weeks until you can go back to normal activities but it could take longer. Dr. Rosenbaum finds that most of his patients are back to normal around 4 – 6 months. Skin removal surgery can be life changing for patients with amazing results that you can see right away.
