    Skin Removal Surgery After Weight Loss Surgery

    Skin Removal Surgery

    Skin Removal Surgery After Weight Loss SurgerySkin removal surgery is an increasingly sought-after procedure among women and men who undergo a massive weight loss. The plastic surgery is also effective in addressing post-pregnancy and aging effects which cause loose and sagging skin in some cases. The procedure involves one or more body contouring treatments to remove excess skin from areas such as the breasts, abdomen, love handles, upper arms, thighs, and buttocks.

    Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides skin removal surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.


    Severely drooping skin in the lower abdominal area may sometimes occur after a weight loss surgery. The sagging skin could hang down below the pubic region in some cases. This excess skin collection is medically known as pannus or panniculus. A panniculectomy skin removal cosmetic surgery can be performed to eliminate this excess skin.

    A panniculectomy will dramatically enhance your aesthetic look, and at the same time, it will mitigate any related discomfort, infection, or rashes. You can make comfortable movements and wear the clothes of your choice after this surgery. An abdominoplasty may sometimes be combined with a panniculectomy for more harmonious results.

    Thigh Lift

    A thigh lift plastic surgery can effective eliminate loose skin and excess fat deposits from the inner areas of your thighs. Your surgeon will create incisions in a discreet location, such as the hidden crease of the groin as well as the inner aspects of the thighs. Excess skin and fat will be removed through the incisions, and the thighs will be tightened to enhance your lower body definition and shape.

    Buttock Lift

    Similar to tummy tuck surgery, a butt lift plastic surgery involves excess skin removal, but from the posterior. Following a weight loss surgery, you may be left with a flattened and saggy look of the buttocks and outer thighs. This can be corrected with a butt lift surgery. The procedure involves placement of an incision just above the buttock through which the excess skin is removed.

    Male Chest Lift

    Male chest may sometimes develop large amounts of sagging skin following a bariatric surgery or simply because of aging. A chest lift cosmetic surgery in men can effectively correct this condition. Your surgeon will remove the loose skin and excess fat pockets with this procedure to reveal a youthful, masculine, and firmer chest.

    Back Lift or Bra Line Lift

    An upper back lift, also known as a bra line lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure to remove inelastic, excess skin and fatty tissue from across your upper back and the sides of the breasts (commonly called bra rolls). Your surgeon will create the scar in a discreet area so that it gets concealed underneath the bra.

    Lower Body Lift

    A lower body lift, also called circumferential body lift, is one of the common procedures included in a skin removal surgery. In this 360 degree comprehensive skin tightening surgery, your surgeon will remove hanging and loose skin from the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, lower back and thighs. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for skin removal surgery.
