A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that tightens the abdominal skin and underlying muscles. For many people; after childbirth or extreme weight loss, the abdominal muscles separate and the skin is left stretched and saggy.
A traditional tummy tuck addresses these issues by placing an incision below the bikini line and from one hip to the other hip. This eliminates loose and damaged skin, along with abdominal stretch marks and scars from previous surgeries. Sutures are then used to repair the separated abdominal muscles creating an “internal corset”, restoring a more toned and flatter mid-section. Depending on your body shape, Dr. Heistein may combine the tummy tuck procedure with liposuction or breast lift to achieve the best possible results.
Body Contouring after Weight Loss
After losing large amounts of weight as a result of bariatric surgery, many patients may still have extra skin left over, especially around the abdomen. Before bariatric surgery, the abdomen is usually the area of the body with the most fat distribution and therefore excess skin once the fat has been shed. Body Contouring procedures are designed to tighten and remove this extra skin in order for a man or woman to be able to wear properly-sized clothing and avoid getting rashes in the folds of the skin. Skin tightening or removal is an excellent way for a post-bariatric surgery patient to take another step towards leading a healthier and happier life.
Dr. Jonathan Heistein has worked with post-bariatric patients for years around the Dallas/Fort Worth area and understands how intimidating skin tightening and body contouring surgery can be. He will ensure that you understand each step of the process and that all of your questions are answered.
Abdominal skin tightening is the most common body contouring procedure after massive weight loss and is performed in one of three ways: panniculectomy (skin tightening), belt lipectomy (lower body lift) or tummy tuck. There are also other skin removal procedures that can be done on the arms, thighs, chest, back, buttocks and breasts. The skin removal method you and Dr. Heistein choose will depend on your overall health, as well as the amount of loose skin you have following bariatric surgery.
Breast augmentation with implants is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed by Dr. Heistein.
Breast augmentation is an excellent way to regain confidence about yourself and your body. Many women find that a procedure for breast augmentation with breast implants provides the self-esteem boost that they have been seeking to look good in certain clothing or bathing suits. A breast augmentation is performed by inserting breast implants with the ultimate goal of increasing the size of the breast, or to replace volume lost due to pregnancy or weight loss.
