What Type of Surgery is Needed After Weight Loss or Bariatric Surgery?

Following drastic weight loss, or rapid weight loss induced by bariatric surgery, your skin probably won’t bounce back to adjust to your new, slimmer frame. In fact, you’ll likely have large amounts of loose skin that fold over, creating the appearance of fat under your clothes. Our surgery simply removes that extra skin, in areas your surgeon will discuss with you in a consultation. As a result, your body will look leaner, and you’ll bypass any chafing typically associated with weight loss-induced loose skin.

The Differences Between Skin Removal and Tummy Tuck Surgery

While both skin removal and tummy tuck procedures focus on removing excess skin and diminishing fat deposits, a tummy tuck typically also corrects and strengthens the abdominal muscles. This is particularly useful if you’ve been pregnant, and especially if you have diastasis recti — or muscle separation — resulting from pregnancy, obesity, or other causes. A tummy tuck can tighten these muscles once more, reducing the tell-tale separation lines that form.

Skin removal takes away leftover skin and sometimes fat, but leaves your muscles as they are.

What is the Recovery Like
After Skin Removal Surgery?

Recovery times vary depending on which skin removal procedures you undergo, how much skin there is to begin with, and if you’re at a healthy weight. Typically, the healing process for full-body skin removal takes around six to eight weeks, with most patients needing anywhere from three to six weeks off work.

During recovery, you will need to wear a compression garment to promote healing and prevent swelling. Smoking can significantly increase the risk of complications post-procedure, so we recommend quitting at least four weeks prior. Dr. Greer will explain all this and more in a personal consultation with you.

How Much Does Skin Removal
Surgery Cost in Mentor?

The cost and duration of skin removal surgery is highly dependent on the individual and if you’ve had any kind of surgical procedures performed in the past. The amount of excess skin we need to take off, and whether you require fat removal, also factor into the cost. Dr. Greer will provide you with a detailed cost breakdown that addresses your personalized treatment plan, and includes surgical and facility fees and anesthesia.
