3 Surgeries To Consider After Dramatic Weight LossPublished on February 25, 2015 by Tal Roudner
Problems associated with excess skin
This leftover skin causes patients to experience chafing, pain and decreased self-confidence. Dr. Tal Roudner offers several procedures that address this problem.
Extreme Weight-loss can lead to drooping skin – These 3 surgeries can help:
1. A Breast Lift
During a Breast Lift procedure, Dr. Roudner removes the excess skin and then tightens the tissue surrounding the area. He reshapes the area to support the contour of the new breast. If the areola is enlarged, this issue can be addressed as well. A breast lift rejuvenates a patient’s figure with a profile that is uplifted and more youthful looking.
2. A Breast Augmentation
Following significant weight loss, the breast may have a deflated or elongated appearance. When a breast lift is performed, the position of the nipple itself is key in the reshaping of the breast; however, when an individual has lost a substantial amount of weight, the skin of the breast is too large for the breast volume that remains.
For a Breast Augmentation to offer the patient the best results possible, the implant needs to fit the breast perfectly. Otherwise, the tissue and skin of the breast could move unnaturally over the breast implant.
If the implant necessary to fit the breast volume is larger than the size a patient wants, a variation of a breast lift may be necessary. This variation will allow a patient to have the smaller breast implant that is desired.
3. A Tummy Tuck
Tummy Tuck surgery is used after extreme weight loss to remove the loose skin and tighten the muscles within the abdominal wall. Another benefit of a tummy tuck is that stretch marks located on the lower abdomen may be removed along with the excess skin.
