Significant weight loss is a noteworthy accomplishment. Whether through traditional means like diet and exercise or through bariatric surgery, losing weight can have a variety of benefits such as increased energy, lower blood pressure, less risk for diabetes, and more. Deciding to take the next step towards better health can be very rewarding. Unfortunately, an unhappy side effect with significant weight loss is loose, sagging skin.
At Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we offer two unique procedures to address skin laxity after significant weight loss. For patients who would like to achieve tighter, firmer-looking skin with a minimally-invasive treatment, BodyTite™ might be the best solution. Conversely, patients that would like to see more significant skin tightening may be a better fit for surgical intervention with post-weight-loss surgery.

Post-weight-loss surgery includes combining one or more procedures together with the goal of giving the patient a more defined body contour after losing a significant amount of weight. It is a highly customizable procedure that addresses a person’s individual concerns.
Weight loss surgeries are performed under general anesthesia to keep you comfortable throughout, and in many cases, you’ll be able to go home the same day.
Your surgery may include one or more of the following:
