Most weight loss patients say they’re mentally and emotionally prepared for the fact their skin will droop as they lose weight. As their bodies change and they approach their target goal, however, they often find they’re not ready for the way they look in the mirror. Once one is able to accept that the redundant skin is not going to go away, the realization can be devastating. One of our patients once told us, for many people, if they can’t have plastic surgery to address the problem, “It’s almost worse than not having lost the weight.”
It’s important to understand, plastic surgery after weight loss can be complex, as it could possibly include multiple stages and many decisions will need to be made in order to optimize the results. However, more important than any other success factor is selecting the right surgeon with the credentials, experience and compassion to be your partner.
