Post-Weight Loss Surgery
The number of people getting bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, has increased in recent years. Losing a dramatic amount of weight can revitalize the body and the mind. It can improve your health, energy, and self-worth, and it can prompt positive changes in your lifestyle. However, significant weight loss usually leaves behind loose, stretched skin that has lost its elasticity. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Josh Olson can help you take the next step after weight loss with body contouring surgery in Gilbert, AZ. He personalizes this procedure to complement your thinner silhouette and increase your confidence.

Reasons for Post-Weight Loss Surgery
People who have lost a significant amount of weight, especially through bariatric surgery such as gastric banding, gastric bypass, or a gastric sleeve, are often left with excess skin that hangs around the body. With cosmetic surgery, Dr. Olson can:
- Remove excess skin
- Tighten the skin and muscles of the upper and lower body
- Enhance the body’s appearance
- Increase confidence and improve self-image

Because weight loss generally affects many different areas of the body, a wide range of treatments makes up the category of post-weight loss body contouring. Dr. Olson can perform any combination of the following procedures to help you gain an appearance that accentuates your new trimmer physique.
Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
Extensive weight loss often leaves loose, hanging skin on the arms, which can be embarrassing and difficult to conceal unless you always wear loose, long-sleeved clothing. With very inconspicuous incisions, Dr. Olson can remove excess upper arm skin, leaving your arms looking firm and toned.
Lower Body Lift
The midsection, hips, buttocks, and thighs are also affected by significant weight loss. A circumferential abdominoplasty (or belt lipectomy) is similar to a traditional tummy tuck but extends all the way around to the lower back. It can eliminate excess skin around the midsection while firming the tissues of the buttocks and thighs. If the buttocks and thighs require more attention, Dr. Olson can perform a thigh lift to further tighten these areas.
Breast and Facial Surgery
The breasts and face may also require attention if they are left with loose, excess skin after weight loss surgery. To learn more, read about breast reduction, breast lift, and facelift and neck lift procedures.
Recovery & Results
Recovery time varies based on the procedures chosen. Dr. Olson will provide detailed instructions for recovery and provide ongoing support to monitor your progress. Once you heal, you will be able to fully enjoy your thinner body. With exercise and a balanced diet, you can further enhance your health, physical appearance, and sense of self-worth.
