Cosmetic Surgery Post Weight Loss Body Contouring

What is cosmetic surgery?

Cosmetic procedures focus on your appearance. Cosmetic surgery aims to enhance your body to help you become the best version of yourself, rather than change you into someone else.

Dr. Nazarian follows strict protocols to ensure that patients undergoing cosmetic surgery don't have any emotional issues or mental health problems that could affect their judgment. He also makes sure each patient is aware of what is possible to achieve and the limitations of a chosen procedure.

What types of body contouring surgery might benefit me?

Body contouring surgery is often done following significant weight loss to eliminate the sagging skin and flesh left behind. Examples include:

  • Arm lift for the upper arm
  • Facelift for the mid-face and neck
  • Lower body lifts for the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs
  • Medial thigh lift for the inner thigh

Dr. Nazarian excels in performing abdominoplasty, better known as a tummy tuck. This procedure removes excess skin hanging over your abdomen like an apron, a common problem not only in people who've lost weight but in women following childbirth.

You could also benefit from liposuction to remove excess fat. This procedure liquefies fat cells under your skin and sucks them out. It's suitable for large areas like the thighs.

What cosmetic surgery could I have on my breasts?

There are several approaches to improving the appearance of your breasts. If they're flattened after having children or as a result of menopause, Dr. Nazarian can perform a breast lift to raise the sagging tissue.

He can also perform breast augmentation, inserting silicone gel or saline-filled implants that increase the size of your breasts. Some women choose to have both a breast lift and breast implants. 

Alternatively, if your breasts are painfully large, Dr. Nazarian can carry out a breast reduction to make you more comfortable.

Do cosmetic procedures always involve surgery?

Increasing numbers of cosmetic procedures don't involve surgery, which means you experience less pain and a faster recovery. SmartLipo™, for example, is a way of reducing fat using energy from lasers rather than surgical removal.

Laser-assisted lipolysis and other procedures that use laser technology are excellent options when cosmetic surgery isn't possible, or you don't feel comfortable undergoing surgery.
