Surgery After Weight Loss for Men

Dr. Parker performs surgery after weight loss, also called post-weight loss body contouring surgery, in Paramus to help men from Ridgewood and throughout Bergen County, North New Jersey, and surrounding areas get rid of loose, sagging skin that remains after they achieve their weight loss goals. He restores tighter contours that help patients look better and feel more comfortable in a wide range of clothing and strives to achieve scars that are as inconspicuous as possible. These personalized procedures are performed after massive weight loss, whether through bariatric surgery or diet and exercise.

Does Loose Skin Eventually Tighten After Weight Loss?

After significant weight loss, people are often left with a tremendous amount of loose, sagging skin around many different parts of the body. In addition to being unattractive, excess skin can cause irritation, hygiene issues, and problems with finding clothing that fits properly.

Unfortunately, neither diet nor exercise can tighten or diminish this excess, loose skin. The only treatment option is to have it safely removed and the body re-contoured by a qualified plastic surgeon.

Options for Surgery After Weight Loss

After weight loss, patients have differing needs for body contouring surgery to lift and tighten specific areas of the body. In general, these combination surgeries include one or more of the following procedures:

  • Body lift combines abdominoplasty with an outer thigh and buttock lift to reduce excess skin on the belly and flanks, tighten abdominal muscles, and restore firm, smooth body contours.
  • Male breast reduction restores firmer, flatter masculine chest contours and reshapes the nipple and areola if necessary.
  • Arm lift reduces hanging skin on the upper arm for a fit, more youthful appearance.
  • Thigh lift for men tightens sagging skin on the upper leg to improve contours and reduce chafing. At your consultation, Dr. Parker will talk with you about your desired improvements, examine your areas of concern, and create a personalized surgical plan for you.
