For patients who had bariatric (weight loss) surgery, or lost a significant amount of weight by other means, the excess skin in the arms, breasts, truck, and thighs, can be improved with body contouring procedures.
The cases and results below are based on Dr. Gutowski’s own patients. They are a representative sample of the hundreds of body contouring procedures that he personally performed on patients who achieved dramatic weight loss. Results are based on each individual patient’s goals, expectations and body proportions. Dr. Gutowski is experienced with the following types of procedures for patients who lost weight after bariatric surgery:
- Arm & forearm lifts
- Breast lifts, reductions & augmentations
- Mini, standard, extended & corset tummy tucks, including a “no drain tummy tuck“,
- Body lifts (circumferential tummy tucks) and offers a “no drain body lift”
A body lift can be done in 3 to 4 hours and if a hernia is present, it can be fixed at the same time.
For more information and to discuss body contouring procedures after weight loss, you may contact Dr. Gutowski to schedule an appointment and view more before and after photos.
