Massive Weight Loss
After massive weight loss, many women and men find themselves with excess skin that is unable to adjust well to the body’s new contours and hangs around the abdomen, neck, thighs, arms, legs, and buttocks. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Newman offers post massive weight loss plastic surgery to help Westchester, Long Island, and NYC patients get rid of this extra skin to renew their confidence and quality of life.
What is massive weight loss surgery?
As the results of massive weight loss are uniquely expressed across individuals, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to post-weight loss plastic surgery. It often involves a number of procedures to address the unique needs of each patient. These procedures often include:
- Arm lift (brachioplasty)
- Lower body lift
- Breast lift with or without breast implants
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
- Upper body lift
- Thigh lift
The procedures above remove and tighten sagging skin, sculpting the body into its best shape. The result is a more natural and youthful appearance.
I had surgery done previously by another doctor and I was unhappy with my results. Dr. N has done surgery on several of my friends and has done more of this than any of the other doctors I went to. In the end this was definitely the right choice.Scarsdalemom
What are the benefits of post-weight loss surgery?
- Removing loose or sagging skin
- Creating a more youthful body profile
- Improving self-esteem and emotional well-being
- Maximizing the gains from bariatric surgery
Am I a candidate for massive weight loss surgery?
Candidates for massive weight loss surgery are those who have sustained a weight loss plateau for at least 6 months. Waiting for a stable weight has a number of benefits, which include:
- Enabling patients to fully integrate a healthy lifestyle into their daily routine through exercise and diet.
- Allowing the skin to take its natural position following weight loss―in some, it may “snap back” quickly, whereas for others, it may take time.
- Ensuring that any improvements from the surgery will be based on the body’s best shape and will, therefore, last longer.

How long does post-weight loss plastic surgery take?
Plastic surgery after massive weight loss is highly customized to the unique needs of the individual. The complexity and number of procedures required to achieve your vision will determine the length of treatment. It is also important to note that undergoing a series of procedures will take significantly longer because of recovery periods between each successive surgery.
