Whether weight loss is achieved through diet and exercise or through bariatric surgery such as gastric bypass or Lap Banding, excess skin is often a result of this dramatic weight loss. When achieving dramatic weight loss, especially in a short period of time, the skin does not shrink back to its original form. Body lifting procedures can help to eliminate excess skin and give patients the confidence and body contour that they desire. Many individuals consider the removal of this excess skin to be an exciting and central part of the transformation process.
It is not uncommon to have these reconstructive body lift surgeries performed in stages. Common surgical procedures following a major weight loss include; Arm Lift (Brachioplasty), Breast Lift (Mastopexy), Thigh Lift – Buttock Lift and Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty). All of these procedures are performed in our fully accredited Oakville clinic.
