DIEP Breast Reconstruction – Post-Mastectomy Surgery – Phoenix, AZ
After weight reduction surgery or significant loss of weight, the skin often lacks elasticity and loses conformity to the reduced body size. This severely stretched skin may result in sagging upper arms, flattened breasts, or an abdominal area that extends around the waist sides like an apron. Excessive unsupported skin after weight loss surgery may also lead to thighs, groin, and buttocks that have hanging pockets of skin.
Phoenix plastic surgeons, Dr. Rozbeh Torabi and Dr. Radbeh Torabi, perform excess skin removal surgery to help patients achieve a smoother and well-contoured skin profile after losing substantial weight.
EXCESS SKIN REMOVAL CANDIDATES
To get the most out of your skin removal surgery in Phoenix, Drs. Torabi advise that you wait until you have maintained a stable weight for at least 6 months. This waiting process can help prevent additional loosening or stretching skin in the future. Your initial consultation at the Elite Plastic Surgery will be an excellent opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have about skin removal surgery. Our plastic surgeons will evaluate you on an individual basis and craft a treatment plan that works best for you.

EXCESSIVE SKIN REMOVAL SURGERY OPTIONS
Your Arizona skin removal treatment options may feature one or any combination of the following procedures:
Skin reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure typically performed under general anesthesia. Your plastic surgeon will carefully place incisions within the natural folds of the skin in order to minimize visible scarring.
During the surgery, the surgeon will work to excise the excess skin to create a better contour of the treatment area. Once this is done, the surgeon will close the incision sites in a way that ensures proper healing as well as minimizes post-operative scarring.
Following skin reduction treatment, the recovery process will vary from one person to the other – usually depending on the amount of skin removed as well as the area of treatment. Light walking and standing are recommended as soon as you are able to in order to ensure proper blood circulation and speedy healing. Patients should expect a degree of swelling, numbness, and soreness, but these usually subside within a few weeks. Your Phoenix skin removal surgeon will prescribe pain medication and provide precise instructions that you should follow to ensure proper healing. Patients should expect to take at least 2 weeks off work and should refrain from any form of strenuous activity for a period of 8 weeks.
