After Weight Loss Surgery
If you have experienced significant weight loss, you are to be commended, having overcome a major hurdle in your life. The downside: while your new shape represents a huge accomplishment, you may now be faced with additional frustrations. This is due to the loose and wrinkly skin that remained on your body. Significant weight loss often leaves men and women with skin that cannot conform to their new, smaller size. Regardless of where the sagging skin resides, skin removal surgery is often needed to eliminate the issue. Double board-certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schoemann offers after weight loss surgery for Encinitas, CA men and women. This life-changing procedure can be performed at Schoemann Plastic Surgery Center, serving as the final step in your weight loss journey.
The ideal candidates for skin removal and tightening surgery are those who have excessive loose skin due to losing a significant amount of weight. In most cases, this issue is recognized early on as weight is lost. If weight loss has caused stretched skin, surgery at Schoemann Plastic Surgery can reduce the deformity and secure the remaining tissue for a healthy, tighter look. It is important that patients be near their goal weight before having this procedure.
