EXCESS SKIN REMOVAL PHOENIX

Skin Removal after Weight Loss in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Gilbert, Glendale, Mesa, and Paradise Valley

SKIN REMOVAL AFTER WEIGHT LOSS IN SCOTTSDALE, PHOENIX, GILBERT, GLENDALE, MESA, PARADISE VALLEY, AND CHANDLER, AZ

After a weight reduction surgery or significant weight loss, the skin and tissues often lack elasticity and lose conformity to the reduced body size. This severely stretched skin may result in sagging upper arms, flattened breasts, or an abdominal area extending like an apron around the waist sides. Excessive, unsupported skin after weight loss surgery may also lead to thighs, groin, and buttocks with hanging skin pockets. 

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

The right candidates for this procedure are individuals who have loose skin that is functionally, cosmetically, or emotionally troubling. You should be in good health and possess realistic expectations about the procedure’s outcome. Patients need to have enough recovery time to ensure proper healing and an excellent outcome.

If you are planning on getting a skin reduction procedure, keep in mind that there may be some scarring from this treatment. Our plastic surgeons at Elite Plastic Surgery employ advanced surgical techniques to minimize visible scarring and produce an exceptional cosmetic result.

BEST RESULTS FROM SKIN REMOVAL

To get the most out of your skin removal surgery in Phoenix, Drs. Torabi advises that you wait until you have maintained a stable weight for at least six months. This waiting process can help prevent additional loosening or stretching of the skin in the future.

Your initial consultation at Elite Plastic Surgery will be an excellent opportunity to ask any questions you may have about skin removal surgery. Our plastic surgeons will evaluate you individually 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:

SURGICAL PROCESS

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 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 to ensure proper healing and minimize postoperative scarring.

AFTER SKIN REMOVAL SURGERY

Following excess skin surgery, the recovery process will vary from one person to the other – usually depending on the amount of skin removed and the area of treatment. Light walking and standing are recommended as soon as you can 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 two weeks off work and should refrain from any form of strenuous activity for 8 weeks.

EXCESS SKIN REMOVAL FAQS

What is excess skin removal surgery?

Annoying, unsightly, and excess skin can naturally result from weight loss or aging. This treatment aims to get rid of excess skin from the face, neck, and abdominal regions. Our Phoenix cosmetic surgeons at Elite Plastic Surgery will recommend the best procedure option(s) for you depending on your problem areas.

What is the cost of a skin reduction procedure?

The cost of this surgical treatment depends on the combination of treatment procedures selected. Other factors that influence the cost of your skin removal surgery in Phoenix include surgical fees, anesthesia fees, and facility fees.

When can I expect to see results?

You’ll be able to get an impression of the outcome as soon as the swelling and bruising dissipate. However, it might take up to a few months before you can see the final results. Although the impact of this procedure is usually long-lasting, it can be reversed due to additional weight gain. The permanence of this treatment will vary from one patient to the other, but a healthy lifestyle can help.
