Post-bariatric surgery, also known as "body lift surgery," is an effective surgical process used to tighten skin after weight loss. Excess skin is removed, and what remains is lifted and tightened to better fit the patient's new body. This usually takes place over the course of several visits to our surgical facility, as your surgeon addresses each area of your body that has excess sagging skin.


Post-bariatric body contouring is not a single procedure, but rather a collection of procedures, such as arm lift, thigh lift, neck lift, lower body lift, and abdominoplasty. Each of these is used to tighten skin after weight loss in a specific area of the body.
