Losing any amount of weight is an accomplishment. Taking off a few pounds is rarely a problem. Adding in exercise is usually enough to tighten loose skin and muscles, but it is different when you experience a massive weight loss. The unhealthy weight is gone, but you a left with folds of hanging skin.

Types of Post-Massive Weight Loss Surgery
Gaines Plastic Surgery will create a custom treatment plan to resolve your issues with loose skin and muscles.
An arm lift (Brachioplasty) removes fatty deposits that are not responding to weight loss and exercise. The procedure lifts sagging skin on the upper arm, and it is often combined with abdominoplasty or liposuction.
Your weight loss can also affect your breasts. Your weight gain can cause the fibers supporting breast tissue. After weight loss, the fibers remained loose. It can result in sagging or ‘deflated-looking’ breasts that can negatively affect your self-esteem. A breast lift (Mastopexy) tightens loose fibers and skin. The procedure lifts your breasts with minimal scarring.
Dr. Gaines can also treat excess skin on your thighs with a lateral or medial thigh lift. The procedures safely remove excess fat that doesn’t burn away with exercise. Your weight loss can also leave you with sagging buttocks, but Dr. Gaines can tighten the skin and muscles during the procedure.
