Losing weight is a big deal and men deserve to celebrate it. However, if weight loss happens too quickly, the skin may not adjust, causing it to become loose and flabby. For this reason, many come to us at Male Plastic Surgery LA seeking loose skin surgery for men in LA.
Procedures involving the removal of excess skin are often sought after by individuals who have undergone significant weight loss, either through bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) or lifestyle modifications. Cosmetic surgeries, such as panniculectomy, abdominoplasty (known as tummy tucks), and brachioplasty (arm lifts), effectively eliminate loose and sagging skin. These surgeries are aimed at enhancing appearance, comfort and confidence.
With Dr. Douglas Steinbrech’s many options for addressing excess skin in men, you can get rid of loose skin from your weight loss journey and attain the desired appearance.
What Is Loose Skin Removal Surgery?
There are various procedures aimed at tackling the pesky issue of excess loose skin, usually left behind from a quick weight loss. Whether it be natural weight loss or through something like bariatric surgery, there are several excess skin removal options to address the leftover loose skin.
Body sculpting or body contouring is an effective way to handle this problem. Body contouring is a surgical procedure that looks to remove excess skin following weight loss and it can be performed in many different areas and ways.
What Are the Different Types of Loose Skin Removal Options?
How Is Loose Skin Surgery Performed?
Prior to any procedures, a consultation is necessary. Dr. Steinbrech will begin by examining your specific concerns and objectives, and together, you’ll create a tailored plan for your skin removal needs.
This consultation aids in identifying areas where excess skin removal is required, planning incisions, and outlining your unique recovery process. Keep in mind that since each patient is unique, there’s no universal approach to excess skin removal.
It differs depending on the procedure, but typically speaking, incisions are made in the determined problem areas. During a tummy tuck, for example, incisions are made near the buttocks, inner thighs and lower stomach/abdomen. Excess skin is then removed and stretched over the needed areas.
Loose skin removal is not only about getting rid of excess skin, it is also about making your body appear natural and radiant, so that you can live with the utmost confidence.
Loose Skin Removal Recovery Time
Recovery time can vary from one patient to another. It depends on the complexity of your particular procedure and your overall health. Typically, you can anticipate experiencing some moderate pain and bruising in the initial week following excess skin removal and body contouring.
Depending on the procedure, recovery time can vary. Typically patients will be back to normal and see the full results of their surgery within two to six weeks. Following a tummy tuck, physical activity and work should be avoided for at least 10-14 days following the procedure. This includes working out and intense exercise.
When necessary, patients will be given compression garments to aid in the healing process and alleviate swelling. Pain medication may also be prescribed to help mitigate any pain one might have following their loose skin removal surgery.
