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 loose 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 oftentimes a long and difficult journey. Often 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 these 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 include a higher self-confidence thanks to a significant reduction in the burdensome “floppy” skin – resulting in an improved contour, body image and enhanced 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 the reasonable expectations for the goals you wish to achieve.
