Something is still dragging amidst your weight loss bragging. In this new fast moving world, you need to be more aerodynamic. You need a sleeker more stream-lined body. All of the excess surface has to go, whether it‘s on your chest, around your trunk, at your butts, or your arms and thighs.

Breast lift with or without implantation can take care of excess skin on the chest, tummy tuck and belt-excision the trunk, buttock lift the rear, arm and thigh lifts the extremities. You may have excess at some unconventional areas, and we at Plastic Surgery Institute & Spa can apply plastic surgery principles to customize procedures to fit your situation.
Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
An arm lift, or otherwise known as brachioplasty, can remove the excess skin and fat deposits from your arms, leaving the upper arms with a more pleasing and youthful contour.
Medial Thigh Lift
The medial thigh lift will lift and tighten the sagging skin of the inner thigh. Incisions are usually placed in the groin.
A panniculectomy is performed to remove the hanging pannus, or apron of skin, from the lower abdomen below the belly button. The excess skin and fat above the belly button are not removed. A panniculectomy is often performed on patients who are still significantly overweight but have skin irritation from their hanging skin. After surgery, these patients have less skin problems but have little improvement in the contour of their bellies.
Lower Body Lift (Belt Lipectomy)
In one procedure, the sagging skin of the abdomen, outer thighs, buttocks, hips, and waist is corrected. Incisions extend completely around the body to remove a "belt" of excess skin and fat. Another common name for this procedure is a "belt lipectomy."
