Obesity is considered an epidemic in America with one third of the population reportedly obese. With such a situation, many businesses have come into play to try and curb the ever growing numbers. This revelation has been met with a number of products and solutions to promote rapid weight loss. Treatments such as bariatric surgery or even strict dieting are being used to bring about drastic loss of body fat and weight.
Unfortunately, one effect of this is that it often stretches out the skin and underlying tissues to their limit. So even if one loses weight, the abundance of skin still stands an unwelcome effect. This skin is unable to adjust well to the body’s new contour and hangs around the abdomen, neck, thighs, arms, buttock regions. Massive weight loss surgery is a collection of medical procedures that address these undesirable effects. It is perfect for patients who have undergone massive weight loss and have excess skin that they would like to get rid of.
Understanding the Procedure
As the results of massive weight loss surgery are uniquely expressed across individuals, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. It can involve a number of procedures to address the unique needs of each individual. These procedures include:
- Lower body lift
- Augmentation mastopexy
- Upper body lift
- Thigh lift
- Mastopexy (Breast lift)
Today is a week since my surgery and I just saw Dr. Newman for my second post-op visit. I am so thrilled. First of all his staff is wonderful. I am amazed at how I feel now only one week later. Dr. Newman told me that I'd be OK to return to work this past Monday only 3 days after surgery. Honestly, I didn't believe him but as it turned out he was correct. I returned on Tuesday after surgery last Friday. At this point I have almost no pain and I only have a small bruise on my left side. My result is amazing and exactly what I told him I wanted. I heard from other people how good he is and, to be honest, I'm amazed at how easy this was. Go Dr. N!!!JessieRK

Am I An Ideal Candidate For This Procedure?
Candidates for massive weight loss surgery are those who have sustained a weight loss plateau for at least six months. This happens for a number of reasons. First, it enables patients to fully integrate a healthy lifestyle into their daily routine, through exercise and diet. It also enables the individual’s skin to take its natural position following weight loss – some may ‘snap back’ quickly whereas others may take time. The six-month plateau period positions the surgery so that any improvements made will be based on the body’s best shape and will therefore last longer.
