Post Weight Loss Body Contouring
Post weight loss body contouring procedures are useful when massive weight loss from diet and exercise or having had weight loss surgery leaves individuals with excessive skin throughout their body.
Face, arms, chest, waist, buttocks and thighs are the most common areas affected. Post weight loss body contouring procedures are designed to remove excess skin and contour the specific areas of concern. If combined, these procedures are lengthy and often require a 1-2 day hospital stay, but if done separately many of these procedures can be done on an outpatient basis.
At the time of your consultation you will address your goals and most often Dr. Lynam will recommend you start with surgery to address what bothers you the most, thus giving you a sense of accomplishment and control over what has been often times a long and difficult journey. Often one post weight loss body contouring procedure every 3-6 months will be done until a patient has accomplished their goals.
As with all procedures, risks are involved with the post weight loss body contouring procedures and should be discussed thoroughly with your surgeon. The most common problems after surgery relate to poor wound healing, infection, and poor scar formation. Your benefits are numerous, including a significant reduction in the burdensome “floppy” skin thus creating an improved contour, body image and enhance your self-confidence.
The most common procedures after massive weight loss are:
- Circumferential body lift or extended abdominoplasty
- Brachioplasty (arm lift)
- Thigh lift
- Mastopexy (Breast lift)
- Face Lift (Facial)
The above post weight loss body contouring procedures are all cosmetic surgery and are NOT covered by health insurance.

You will learn what are reasonable expectations for the goals you wish to achieve.

“Dr. Lynam was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Most importantly, he is well credentialed and an expert plastic surgeon. I was able to tell him what I wanted done, and after examining me, he felt that he could certainly meet my expectations. Well, he exceeded them! I am so very pleased with my results. He did both surgeries at the same time and he has turned back the clock on my figure by 30 years. I was concerned about recovery from such extensive surgeries at my age, but all went well. His office staff is pleasant and professional, too~~especially his assistant, Brigitte. I made the right choice, and am very, very glad that I had these procedures done by Dr. Lynam.”
