Major weight loss, whether through surgery or diet and exercise, is highly transformative for patients, leaving them healthier, happier, and more energetic. However, the weight loss is often just the first step in their journey. In many cases, as the body shrinks down to its new, smaller, healthier size, the skin cannot shrink along with it due to a loss of elasticity.
The result is excess skin along the face, breast, arms, waist, and thighs that detracts from the new hard-earned physique. You can fix this with a cosmetic body procedure. A post-weight loss or post bariatric procedure in Fort Worth can help remove this excess skin so you can admire your new look.
Plastic surgery after weight loss or bariatric surgery, ranging from a mini tummy tuck to a full “body lift,” can dramatically reverse these changes. Each treatment approach will be different depending on your goals and priorities, so the first step will always be talking to a plastic surgeon in Fort Worth who specializes in post-weight loss surgery about what will work for you.
