The surgeons of Artisan Plastic Surgery have helped many Atlanta body lift patients. Please read more about the procedure below and to learn whether you are a suitable candidate for the surgery.

Who is a good candidate for this procedure?

When you have successfully achieved significant weight loss, sometimes portions of your upper and lower body can hang or sag uncomfortably. Although you may feel better than ever before, your clothes may fit so poorly that you don’t feel as confident and proud of the success as you should. You’ve taken a critical step in improving your healthy, longevity, and quality of life. Are you ready to enjoy your new-found health unburdened by excess skin?

What does this procedure involve?

The surgeons at Artisan Plastic Surgery will discuss your concerns with you and explain the details of plastic surgery following massive weight loss. There are a number of options to consider, including which procedures are needed to achieve your desired results. You’ll work together to determine a surgical plan that best suits your needs to create the results you’re hoping for.

The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis while you are under general anesthesia. Since there are many options to which procedures are going to be performed, you must speak to one of our plastic surgeons in a consultation to learn the details of your specific procedure (or combination of procedures).

What is the recovery like from this procedure?

Although body-contouring surgery will create scars, our plastic surgeons take care to place the scars where they are least conspicuous. If treated correctly, your scars will fade. Most post-bariatric surgery patients in Atlanta, GA, find that a little scarring is a small price to pay for tighter skin and a better body shape and contour.

The Atlantic plastic surgeons at Artisan Plastic Surgery have the compassion, skill, and experience to work with you to develop a unique body contouring cosmetic surgery procedure. You deserve to look and feel good in your new body after all the weight you’ve lost. We can help you achieve a natural look, adding to your confidence and sense of accomplishment. Plus, your clothes will fit and look better.

Additional procedures that may enhance the result include breast lift, thigh/buttock lift (tummy tuck), etc.
