Surgery After Weight Loss
Losing a large amount of weight is rewarding, but the let-down occurs when excess sagging skin prevents you from feeling confident in your new physique. If you have lost a substantial amount of weight and have areas of loose and sagging skin, Post-Weight Loss Contouring may be appropriate. Dr. Burke uses a combination of techniques to surgically reshape the body, tighten loose and sagging skin in the face, neck, arms, abdomen, love handles, buttocks, thighs, and legs, as well as sculpting and contouring areas of irregular fat deposits.
In general, Dr. Burke performs the surgeries in stages and recommends all patients be at their desired weight for several months before undergoing Post-Weight Loss Contouring.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR WEIGHT LOSS BODY CONTOURING SURGERY
Depending on the areas treated and extent of your procedure, Post-Weight Loss Contouring may be outpatient or require an overnight stay. Procedures are generally performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Renee Burke will be able to evaluate your individual situation more specifically during consultation.

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Burke creates exceptional results by combining the skill of an accomplished plastic surgeon with empathy and compassion.
RECOVERY FROM WEIGHT LOSS BODY CONTOURING SURGERY
Recovery depends on the extent of your procedure. Light activity can be done the day after your procedure. A return to more normal activity may take up to two weeks. Compression garments will be worn throughout your recovery to reduce fluid retention and compress the skin to your new figure. Results can be long-term, but weight loss/gain or pregnancy after your procedure may alter your appearance.
