Post-Bariatric Body Contouring
Conveniently located to serve Panama City, FL, Destin, FL, Lynn Haven, FL, Tallahassee, FL & Dothan, AL
After a massive weight loss, many patients have excess skin or stubborn fat that hasn’t gone away. Many times, this is in the lower abdomen, arms, and thighs. If this is an issue for you, Post-bariatric body contouring might be the perfect surgery for you. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Adil Ceydeli is an expert at these issues and considered by his patients as one of the best plastic surgeons in Panama City.
Below, we’ve outlined information on arm lift, thigh lift, lower body lift, and a panniculectomy. The practice is located in Lynn Haven, just north of Panama City, on the wonderful Emerald Coast. We look forward to beginning this journey with you!
Nips and Tucks After Massive Weight Loss
So you have done all of the heavy lifting and feel lighter and better. But are you more comfortable in your own skin now than you were 100 pounds ago? Something is still interfering with your weight-loss bragging rights. In this fast-moving world, you need to be more aerodynamic. You need a sleeker, more streamlined body. All of the excess surface whether on your chest, around your trunk, at your buttocks, or on your arms and thighs has to go. A number of plastic surgery procedures are designed to address these non-conforming areas and get you into shape. A breast lift, with or without implantation, can take care of excess skin on the chest; a tummy tuck and belt-excision does the same for the trunk; a buttock lift addresses the rear; while arm and thigh lifts handle the extremities. You may have excess skin in some unconventional areas, and we at Plastic Surgery Institute & Spa can apply plastic surgery principles to customize procedures that fit your situation.
Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
An arm lift, 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.
The medial thigh lift lifts and tightens the sagging skin of the inner thighs. 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. 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 fewer skin problems but 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 “belt lipectomy.”
