Post Weight Loss

post weight loss patient

If you have lost significant amounts of weight – either through surgical means or diet and exercise – you may be surprised to find yourself with a body that does not look anything like you expected. Remaining stubborn fat deposits and loose, sagging skin often combine to obscure definition and produce a lumpy, uneven, and unhealthy appearance. If you find your post-weight loss body is not in line with the efforts it took to achieve, board-certified McLean plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside can help.

Are you dissatisfied with your current results from significant weight loss? Please contact New Image Plastic Surgery Associates online or call 703-742-8004 to schedule a consultation at our McLean or Reston location.

Body Countouring Options

Body contouring options that may be combined to help you achieve your goals include:

  • Liposuction for the removal of stubborn fat deposits throughout the body
  • Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to tighten abdominal muscles, slim the waist, and eliminate unnecessary skin from the midsection
  • Thigh lift to tone and trim the upper legs
  • Arm lift to reduce flabby skin and ideally contour the arms
  • Breast surgery including breast reduction and breast lift to produce a balanced and symmetrical chest

Facial plastic surgery is also common following substantial weight loss. Options such as facelift or neck lift to reduce jowls and double chin, forehead lift to eliminate upper facial sagging, and even eyelid surgery can all be used in combination with body contouring options to produce a look that is trim, toned, and healthy.
