For women who have lost a significant amount of weight and have areas of sagging skin on their bodies, a dermatolipectomy can help create a tighter, more appealing figure by removing the extra skin.
The Dermatolipectomy Procedure
The overall goal of a dermatolipectomy is to create improved symmetry between the abdomen and the rest of the body, resulting in slimmer, tighter body contours. As losing a significant amount of weight can leave the skin with a stretched appearance, Dr. Scott will remove excess, sagging skin to create dynamic results and help you fully achieve your aesthetic goals. The trunk and abdomen are the most commonly targeted areas for this procedure, although other areas may be corrected as well depending on your condition.
Your individual procedure may vary depending on the level of the correction necessary as well as your personal goals and preferences. For women who qualify for surgery, a customized plan will be created for you by Dr. Scott. Incision patterns will be placed carefully to result in as little visible scarring as possible, although these will fade over time.
As this procedure can vary depending on the areas of the body that are corrected, healing times may vary. This is a straightforward procedure that results in only minor discomfort afterward. Any necessary aftercare instructions will be relayed to you by Dr. Scott and our medical team prior to your procedure.
Certain contraindicating medical conditions may require further evaluation before surgery is approved. The best way to find out if you are a candidate for a dermatolipectomy procedure is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Scott and our medical team.
