Body Contouring after Massive Weight Loss
Post-bariatric Body Contouring
Bariatric surgery can help you lose weight and improve your health. However, significant weight loss can come with unwanted effects such as loose, stretched skin. Dr. Peter Fisher specializes in body contouring surgeries for patients who have experienced massive weight loss.
Post-bariatric Breast Lift/Augmentation
Many women who have lost a significant amount of weight experience drooping breast tissue and skin. To give you a perkier bust line, Dr. Fisher performs mastopexy, or breast lift surgery. It involves removing excess tissue, pulling the remaining skin taut, and repositioning the nipple and areola.
Lower Body Lift after Massive Weight Loss
A lower body lift can include tummy tuck, pelvic reduction and lift, lateral thigh lift, buttock lift, and fat transfer. In addition, Dr. Fisher has created the hip flap technique to allow patients to retain a more feminine figure than traditional circumferential abdominoplasty usually provides.
Arm Lift after Massive Weight Loss
If you want lean, fit arms after massive weight loss, Dr. Fisher can perform a brachioplasty, or arm lift. To begin this surgery, he may perform liposuction to remove any remaining fat. Then, he will create a posterior incision on the underside of your arm to remove skin and tissue.
Thigh Lift after Massive Weight Loss
To help patients achieve a lean, feminine shape, Dr. Fisher performs thigh lift surgery. Dr. Fisher will use one of three surgical techniques, depending on your needs: a spiral thigh lift, a vertical or “longitudinal” incision, which could extend all the way to your ankle, or an oblique thigh lift.
Dr. Fisher and our team are dedicated to helping you feel confident and relaxed going into surgery, so we provide detailed pre- and post-operative instructions. After surgery, most patients can return to work within two to six weeks, but should make sure to rest and wear compression garments.
Patients frequently travel to Dr. Fisher’s practice because he is the best at what he does: safely delivering outstanding cosmetic results. We know how to make traveling to the clinic as easy as possible for out-of-town patients, providing explicit instructions as well as helpful suggestions.
How to Choose a Body Contouring Surgeon
Choosing a plastic surgeon to help you change your physique after massive weight loss can be a difficult decision. Dr. Fisher has over 25 years of experience as a plastic surgeon, and is a pioneer and renowned authority in body contouring for patients who have undergone significant weight loss.
Dr. Fisher has been available to answer all of my questions and provide me with not only professional medical expertise, but also a much appreciated level of personal empathy. I would 100% recommend Dr. Fisher to anyone who is considering plastic surgery.Brandi
