A significant weight loss is often accompanied by excess, sagging skin. A post weight loss surgery seeks to get rid of the excess skin and tissue to streamline the body shape and contours.

After undergoing a major weight loss surgery, you may find excess, sagging folds of skin in some parts or all around you body. Having embarked upon your weight loss journey and finally reaching your ultimate goal, you may find that while you finally fit into the clothes you have wanted to be able to wear for a long time, the disappointment of how your bodies look underneath can take some of the shine off your triumph.

The best solution in such cases is to consult an experienced plastic surgeon to explore the different options available to improve the aesthetic appearance of the body after significant weight loss. The most common post-weight-loss surgeries include:

  • Body Lift
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Arm Lift
  • Breast lift
  • Thigh Lift
  • Buttock Lift
  • Genital Lift

The body areas which might not require any corrective procedure are the face, lower elbow, lower knee and they do not suffer much change post the weight loss surgery.

We often see that while people undergo the weight loss surgery, they are ignorant of, or choose to ignore the body lift corrections to give the desired look to their body. A plastic surgeon can help in removing the excess sagging skin, the fat cells, the tissues. Depending on patient to patient, a combination of two or more procedures may need to be performed. There are few important considerations which need to be planned to avoid complications and give the optimum results. Post the surgery, patients feel more confident about their new look.

    Dear Cocoona & Dr. Sanjay, Thank you so much for my Breast Augmentation procedure. Its 1 month on and I could not be happier with the result . All the way through from the initial consultation to the post op checkups, all your staff has been wonderful. The Dubai London Clinic for the surgery was fantastic. I would definitely recommend to others to Cocoona. Now if you could fix my handwriting skills please?
    Thanks again.

Love the All!
    Thank you & Best Regards

    I want to thank you for the great effort and expertise that you put in the hair transplant procedure which you did on me. You have fixed a big cut from a previous, very bad hair transplant in Jordan. It kept me very nervous and uncomfortable for very long time. Now, after conducting this surgery by you, I feel very very happy because the cut is almost gone. I like your personality and professionalism. I am really glad that I made a decision to come to Dubai and conduct the surgery at Cocoona Clinic Thank you very much.
