To remove the excess skin and tighten loose tissues, post-bariatric surgery reconstructions are performed. Types of post-bariatric surgery reconstructions include:


Also called a tummy tuck, an abdominoplasty is an effective aesthetic procedure for patients with excess skin and muscle laxity in the abdominal region. Patients who usually consider an abdominoplasty procedure have one or more of the following:

  • Loose abdominal muscles with skin elasticity following pregnancy
  • Ineffective dieting and exercise
  • Desire to remove fat deposits and skin
  • Significant weight loss resulting in an excessive amount of skin

Circumferential Body Lift

A circumferential body lift removes excess skin and tissue around the abdomen, buttocks, and waist regions. If necessary, liposuction is also used during this procedure. Ideal candidates for a circumferential body lift should have:

  • Realistic expectations about the results of the procedure
  • A stable weight
  • Recently experienced significant weight loss
  • A healthy lifestyle

Breast Lift

A breast lift or mastopexy is a surgical procedure that raises and reshapes drooping breasts in order to renew your figure with an elevated and more youthful breast contour. Breast lift results are optimal in women with small to moderate-sized breasts. If your breasts are small or have lost volume, breast implants can be inserted in conjunction with a breast lift to increase firmness and size. Some benefits of a breast lift include:

  • Correction of drooping breasts
  • A more youthful appearance
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Better clothing options

Arm Lift

An arm lift or brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that eradicates a surplus of drooping tissue of the upper arm, which effectively reshapes the arm from the elbow to the underarm region. A brachioplasty procedure is able to:

  • Smooth and tighten the underlying supportive tissue that provides definition and shape to the upper arm
  • Lessen excess sagging skin that hangs downward
  • Reduce localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift or thighplasty aims to improve the appearance of your thighs by reducing excess skin and fat, which results in toned, smoother skin and better contours of the thighs and lower body. Thigh lift candidates often:

  • Possess a surplus of skin due to recent, significant weight loss
  • Have excess soft tissue around the thigh area
  • Wish to smooth out stretch marks
  • Want to balance out existing body proportions
  • Are committed to a healthy lifestyle following the operations
