Many parts of the body change with extreme weight loss through bariatric surgery in Los Angeles. After working hard to lose the extra pounds, it's natural for patients to want to improve their appearance. These are the most common procedures for me to perform for this patient group:
Abdominoplasty is the removal of large amounts of skin and fat from the lower abdomen. The upper abdominal skin is then pulled downward to redistribute it smoothly over the entire abdomen. The "six-pack" muscles of the abdomen are often tightened as well.
Breast lift surgery rejuvenates sagging breasts by repositioning the breast tissue and removing excess skin to create a firmer, more youthful contour. During the surgery, the nipples and areolas are often moved to a higher, more flattering location.
When patients lose weight, it accelerates the aging process in the face. Hanging skin of the neck, jowls and cheeks may make the patient appear much older than they did when they were overweight. A facelift effectively improves these problems to shave a decade or more off of a person's appearance. I achieve beautiful and natural-appearing results by using state-of-the-art facelift techniques.
Thigh lifts treat hanging skin and cellulite of the inner or outer thighs. A large amount of upper thigh skin is removed and the mid-thigh skin is lifted up toward the patient's waist. The incisions are concealed within the bikini lines.
Butt lifts elevate the droopy skin of the bottom that results following weight loss and aging. The incision is a continuation of the tummy tuck's waistline scar all the way around the back of a patient. The fatty tissue of the lower buttocks is repositioned to create more youthful curves.
The arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, is a technique to remove the extra skin and fat that hangs from the upper arm between the elbow and axilla. The incision is concealed on the inner aspect or back of the arm to be discrete. Arm lifts produce noticeably slimmer-looking arms.
