About Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery
It takes specialized training and experience to recognize the unique physical and psychological needs of people who have undergone massive weight loss due to diet and exercise, gastric bypass, or LAP-BAND® surgery. Respected plastic surgeons in Syracuse, NY, Dr. Anthony Deboni and Dr. Gregory Baum offer their patients the tighter body contours they desire through cosmetic surgery.
After significant weight loss, many of our patients from Utica, Watertown, and Syracuse choose body contouring surgery. The skin often loses its elasticity over time and remains stretched out once the excess weight is lost. Our board-certified plastic surgeons are skilled in a variety of procedures to remove this excess skin and improve the appearance of most any area of the body. Liposuction helps Syracuse patients eliminate the areas of diet-resistant fat that remain. Typical body contouring procedures include:
- Facelift and neck lift
- Arm lift and leg (thigh/buttock) lift
- Tummy tuck
- Belt lipectomy, which targets the sides and lower back, as well as the tummy tuck area
- Breast augmentation with or without breast lift
An improved shape is usually achieved over time with a series of procedures that are staggered over several months to optimize patient safety and ensure proper healing. At your consultation, Dr. Baum or Dr. Deboni will work with you to develop a plan that is customized to your unique needs and goals.
