Surgical Options After Massive Weight Loss

Tummy tuck surgery addresses sagging skin, fatty tissue, and loose or separated muscles in the abdominal region. The incision will be made from hip to hip to remove excess, sagging skin while tightening the underlying rectus muscles.

Breast lift surgery is designed to lift and tighten breasts that have developed ptosis (sagging). This procedure is designed to tighten underlying breast tissue, remove excess skin, and reposition the nipple-areolar complex. Women who opt for breast lift surgery enjoy firmer, perkier breasts.

Losing a massive amount of weight affects the face as it does the rest of the body. Facelift surgery can tighten the underlying muscles in the midface, correct jowls and nasolabial folds, and remove vertical banding in the neck. The result is a younger, smoother facial aesthetic.

Body lift surgery focuses on reshaping and toning the thighs, buttocks, and flanks. During this procedure, excess skin and fat are removed through a circumferential incision around the midsection, producing an improved contour.

Even after losing a substantial amount of weight, you may struggle to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that resist the effects of diet and exercise. Liposuction can rid you of these unwanted fat deposits, leaving you slimmer and complementing your new muscle tone.

Arm lift surgery reduces excess skin the upper part of the arm, tightens the underlying supportive tissue, and eliminates pockets of fat in the arm area. Having sculpted and defined arms can enhance your self-confidence and make it easier to show off your hard work in sleeveless tops.

Surgery After Weightloss Recovery

Your recovery will vary slightly depending on which procedures you undergo. During your recovery, you will be asked to wear compression garments over the surgical sites. These are designed to reduce swelling and encourage blood flow. Drains may be placed to aid in the healing process. Dr. Perez-Gurri and Dr. Garcia will go over how to maintain and care for these drains as well as inform you when they will be removed. Patients typically take up to two weeks off work from desk-type jobs. Physically strenuous jobs may require more time off. Slow walks are encouraged as soon as you can manage in order to increase blood circulation and aid in the healing process, and normal exercise can be resumed after six weeks. All surgical procedures will result in some degree of scarring at the incision sites. Dr. Perez-Gurri and Dr. Garcia work meticulously to make these incisions as inconspicuous as possible, and all scarring tends to fade with time.


“I chose to go with Dr. Garcia for my thigh lift due to his recommended treatment of a Vaser lipo assisted thigh lift to attain the best results. I am so happy with my results thus far and I was told that I won’t see the full results for 12 weeks. I can finally feel confident in a bikini!”


“This was my first time going to see a plastic surgeon and all I can say is “WOW”. The staff was amazing since the moment my hubby and I arrived. The doctor was very sincere and genuine. I can honestly say that they truly care about their patients. Thank you for making me feel very comfortable.”

Miami Surgery After Weightloss FAQ

Candidates for surgery after massive weight loss should be in good general health, not smoke or use tobacco products, and have realistic expectations of the procedure. Candidates should be near their ideal weight and have demonstrated maintenance of that weight for several months.

While uncommon, it is possible to experience complications, such as:

  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Bleeding
  • Anesthesia risks
  • Infection
  • Changes in sensation
  • Nerve damage

These procedures are designed to remove excess skin and some fat deposits. While this may result in the loss of a few pounds, these surgeries are not intended for weight loss and should not be used as a substitute for diet and exercise.

Surgery after massive weight loss will not affect your ability to have children or risk your safety in any way. It is important to know, however, that any additional pregnancies or weight gain may affect and diminish the results achieved through abdominal procedures.
