Body Contouring Surgery after Massive Weight Loss

Patients that undergo massive amounts of weight loss after bariatric surgery or through diligent diet and weight-loss strategies. Massive weight loss and post bariatric surgery patients in the Seattle region seek Dr. Sattler's skill with body contouring and breast lift surgery.  Dr. Scott Sattler offers the full range of tummy tuck, body lift, thigh lift, arm lift, face and neck lift and breast lift options for his Seattle area patients. 

After massive weight loss, patients often notice laxity of the abdomen, buttocks, thighs,  arms, face and neck, and a sagging of breast contour.  Several of these regions can often be addressed during the same cosmetic surgery procedure, thus maximizing a patient's available time for recovery. Surgical scars are kept in locations that can be concealed with clothing. These extensive body contouring procedures are typically done under general anesthesia. Recovery times can vary depending on the extent of the procedure. As with all cosmetic surgical procedures, the health of the patient must be optimal for good surgical results.

Body contouring procedures can be performed for both male and female patients after substantial weight loss. Each body contouring procedure is designed for the individual patient. In our experience, body contouring procedures generally start with contouring of the trunk using lower body lift or abdominoplasty techniques. These lower body lifting procedures can be combined safely with breast lift procedures. Additional procedures such as brachioplasty and thighplasty are usually done at a later procedure to simplify recovery time and minimize time under anesthesia. 

Dr. Sattler's body contouring surgery is customized for each patient to maximally rejuvenate these regions and achieve long-lasting results. The plastic surgeons at Sound Plastic Surgery are experienced and accomplished plastic surgeons that specialize in body contouring after massive weight loss.
