Post Weight-Loss Excess Skin Removal
Post Weight-Loss Excess Skin Removal at Advanced Specialty Care
Gastric bypass surgery has helped many patients improve their lives through successful weight loss. Unfortunately, a large amount of lost weight often results in severe excesses of skin and fat throughout the body. This extra tissue can be unsightly and may cause problems such as back and neck pain. Poorly fitting clothing is also a common complaint. Excess skin removal surgery can remove this extra tissue and restore better proportions to a person’s body.
Extra skin and fat can be removed from the abdomen, arms, thighs, back, breasts and neck. Patients are generally very happy with their appearance after surgery and report that clothing fits better and they are less self-conscious.
The Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons at Advanced Specialty Care offer post weight-loss excess skin removal surgery on women and men. Consultations for skin removal surgery are available in one of our four convenient Connecticut office locations in Danbury, New Milford, Norwalk and Ridgefield.
