It takes hard work and dedication to lose weight. People who have lost a significant amount of weight are often frustrated when they don’t see the results they imagined. Loose, excess skin that doesn’t shrink and tighten up after weight loss prevents patients from reaching their desired appearance. Dr. Shareef Jandali, a leading Connecticut plastic surgeon, offers skin tightening surgery to contour a patient’s body and maximize their weight loss results. Each surgery will be unique to accommodate each patient’s needs and desires. Some surgeries that may be performed include body lift, arm lift, thigh lift, tummy tuck, and breast lift.
One of the most popular skin tightening procedures after extreme weight loss is the body lift. By extending a typical tummy tuck incision around to the back, Dr. Jandali is able to lift and tighten multiple areas of the body. By removing excess skin and pulling the remaining skin tight against the body, we can lift and tone your body from the abdomen and lower back down to the thighs.
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, removes excess skin from the upper arm, between the elbow and armpit. This surgery is used to remove that unsightly flap of skin that is loose and flabby. During arm lift surgery, an incision will be made on the underside of the arm to remove excess skin and fat, leaving the arms tightened and toned.
Thigh lift surgery can be performed on the inner thighs to prevent your legs from rubbing together or on the outer thighs to treat saddle bags. During thigh lift surgery, excess fat and skin will be removed to contour the thighs. The scars from a thigh lift will be discreetly hidden along the bikini line.
For Dr. Jandali’s patients in Bridgeport, tummy tuck is a popular surgery to remove excess skin and fat around the abdomen. The stomach is a common area of concern for many of our patients. This is because the stomach is a natural place for the body to keep extra stores of fat. With this surgical procedure, that excess fat can be removed to leave you with a flatter stomach and more sculpted waistline.
Women who have lost large amounts of weight often find that their breasts have begun to sag. A mastopexy, or breast lift, can be performed to address this problem. There are various techniques that can be used during a breast lift. Dr. Jandali will customize the breast lift to address your areas of concern. In addition to lifting the breast to a more natural and youthful position, we can place implants to improve the shape of your breasts and restore any lost volume that may have occurred during weight loss.
