What is a post-weight loss makeover?

By removing loose, sagging skin and stubborn fat deposits, post-weight loss makeovers help individuals achieve a smoother, firmer, and more proportionate body shape, enhancing their physical and emotional well-being after their weight loss journey.

What is the technique?

The specific procedures included in a post-weight loss makeover may vary based on individual goals and needs, but they often encompass the following.

Body contouring 

Body contouring procedures target areas with loose, sagging skin and stubborn fat deposits. Standard body contouring procedures include:

  • Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles
  • Liposuction to remove localized fat deposits from various body areas
  • Body lift to lift and tighten skin on multiple areas of the body, such as the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs
  • Arm lift (brachioplasty) to remove excess skin and fat from the upper arms
  • Thigh lift to address excess skin on the inner or outer thighs

Breast procedures

After weight loss, breasts may lose volume and develop sagging. The following breast procedures can restore a more youthful and proportionate appearance:

  • Breast lift (mastopexy) lifts and reshapes sagging breasts
  • Breast augmentation enhances breast volume using implants or autologous fat
  • Breast reduction reduces breast size and raises them for improved proportion and comfort
  • Breast implant exchange replaces existing breast implants with new ones

Facial rejuvenation

Weight loss can impact facial volume and skin elasticity. Facial rejuvenation procedures, such as the following, can help restore a more youthful facial appearance:

  • Facelift can lift and tighten facial skin, addressing sagging jowls and loose skin
  • Neck lift / platysmaplasty tightens the neck muscles and skin for a smoother neck contour
  • Neck liposuction removes excess fat lingering in the chin and neck area
  • Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) removes excess skin and fat from the eyelids, reducing puffiness and rejuvenating the eyes

Vaginal rejuvenation

Significant weight loss can also impact the vaginal area, leading to changes in vaginal laxity and aesthetics. Vaginal rejuvenation procedures can include:

  • Labiaplasty reshapes and reduces the size of the labia for improved comfort and aesthetics
  • Mons pubis lift addresses sagging and excess skin in the pubic area
  • FEMtite utilizes radiofrequency technology to tighten and rejuvenate the vaginal tissue

Skin tightening

In addition to surgical procedures, minimally invasive treatments can enhance the results of a post-weight loss makeover. These may include:

  • BREASTtite, which utilizes radiofrequency energy to tighten and lift the breast tissue
  • BODYtite to tighten loose skin and contour the body using radiofrequency technology
  • Dermal fillers to restore facial volume and address wrinkles
  • Skin resurfacing to improve skin texture and tone and reduce scars

What to expect

The day of the procedure arrives, and you'll undergo surgery under the care of Dr. Vinyard. Typically, general anesthesia is administered for your comfort. Dr. Vinyard meticulously performs the planned surgeries, ensuring the removal of excess skin and the refinement of body contours.

The recovery phase following your post-weight loss makeover is critical. Initially, you'll experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising, natural responses to the surgical process. Dr. Vinyard will provide prescribed medications and post-operative care instructions to help manage these effects and facilitate a smooth recovery.

Rest is essential during the early days of recovery, with strenuous activities to be avoided in alignment with Dr. Vinyard's guidance. Depending on the specific procedures performed, you may be advised to wear compression garments to minimize swelling, support the healing process, and aid in achieving desired contours.

Scheduled follow-up appointments with Dr. Vinyard are integral to monitoring your progress and ensuring your healing is progressing as expected. Gradually, as your body heals, you will notice a remarkable improvement in your contours as swelling subsides, revealing the refined and enhanced results of your post-weight loss makeover. Dr. Vinyard will provide clear instructions on when it's safe to return to work, engage in physical exercise, and resume your everyday routines, allowing you to enjoy the rewards of your transformative journey fully.
