Have you recently lost a lot of weight on your own or had bariatric surgery, and now struggle with excess, loose skin?
Would you like to take your body contouring goals to the next levels? If so, it might be time to start thinking about post-weight-loss surgery at Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
How Does Post-Weight-Loss Surgery Work?
If you have recently lost a lot of weight, you may be left with excess skin. This sagging skin commonly develops throughout the face and body making your overall figure appear irregular and misshapen. Post-weight loss surgery refers to a variety of procedures that can be done to tighten and tone sagging skin that is left over after significant weight loss.
Post-weight-loss surgery can include any or all of the following procedures:
Body contouring treatments can be done as a stand-alone procedure or paired with other treatments for dramatic results and a single recovery period. Board-certified surgeon and body contouring specialist, Dr. Craig, works with each patient individually to customize the ideal treatment plan to meet their short and long-term goals.

Am I a Good Candidate for Post-Weight-Loss Surgery?
Patients can gain a more proportionate body, better body image, and more self-confidence with contouring treatments. If you have undergone dramatic weight loss either through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, you may be a good candidate for body contouring surgery. Patients should be at or close to their optimal weight before undergoing the procedure.
Men and women considering the procedure should be in otherwise good physical and mental health. Non-smokers typically respond the best to surgical procedures. The best way to get answers to your specific questions and to determine if you are a good candidate for this surgery is through a personal consultation with Dr. Craig.
“Dr. Craig is one of the most knowledgeable and caring physicians I have ever met. He has made me feel as if I am his only patient. I could not be happier with the results of my surgeries. Dr. Craig is truly an artist with the human body.”

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?*
The length of a typical treatment largely depends on the procedures you have chosen, and if those procedures will be performed at the same time. All post-weight-loss surgeries are performed under general anesthesia keeping the patient comfortable throughout.
What Results Will I See?*
Remember, no two patients will have exactly the same outcome. You should realize that to re-contour and shape your body after dramatic weight loss, you will have visible scars, and uneven contours can develop. While the results of body contouring are visible immediately, if you have poor skin elasticity or gain weight, you will have some relapse of the sagging skin.
Is There Any Downtime?*
The amount of recovery time you’ll need will depend on the procedures included in your post-weight-loss surgery. Dr. Craig will provide you with a personalized recovery plan after your treatment.
