After Weight Loss Surgery

Men and women who undergo significant weight loss are to be commended, having overcome a big burden in their life. However, while their weight loss represents a huge accomplishment, in many cases they will be faced with more frustrations. The new challenge is usually the loose skin that remains on the body. Significant weight loss commonly leaves individuals with skin that cannot conform to their new size. Regardless of where the loose skin resides, plastic surgery is needed to resolve the issue. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle offers after weight loss surgical treatment to Raleigh, NC men and women at Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center, which can be life changing and a lasting step in their weight loss journey.

Ideal Candidates

The ideal candidates for after weight loss surgery are those who have loose and wrinkled skin due to a massive weight loss or fluctuation. This is usually visible early on during weight loss. If you are challenged by loose skin, cosmetic skin removal at Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center can eliminate sagging and secure the tissue and remaining skin for a healthy, tighter look. It is important patients are close to their goal weight before considering skin removal surgery.

Surgical Technique

Plastic surgery to remove loose skin is almost always considered a major treatment. It is performed using general anesthesia and on average takes about 3 – 7 hours (but this is dependent upon the combination of procedures). In most cases, an overnight stay is necessary. A form of liposuction is usually integrated during surgery to remove fat followed by the surgical removal of skin. This operation does make larger incisions than most other cosmetic surgeries, so varying degrees of scars will be associated with this treatment. During surgery, Dr. Lyle will try to make the incisions as inconspicuous as possible. He or a member of his team will give you thorough scar healing instructions for an effective outcome.

Reach Your Goals

Weight loss is such a wonderful accomplishment, and we congratulate you if you have met your goal transformation. If stretched-out skin is a problem, Dr. Lyle welcomes you to learn about your options for skin removal surgery.

I am a 2 time cancer survivor and Dr. LYLE has been my cancer surgeon since I was 29. I got cancer at 29 then again at 43 and I am 49 now. He stopped doing breast reconstruction after I got my second cancer and he still came and did my reconstruction. He didn't have to but he did. He has been my surgeon for 20 years now. Stephanie at the office is great too.

Tummy is flat & toned & breasts are beautiful & proportional to my body - Dr. Lyle recently performed my mommy makeover procedure and I cannot recommend him highly enough. From the initial consultation to the post-op care, Dr. Lyle’s expertise was evident every step of the way.After having dreamed of a mommy makeover for 10 years, when the time finally came I was very nervous. Dr. Lyle took the time to thoroughly explain the procedures and answer every question I had, ensuring that I felt comfortable and well-informed. His attention to detail and precision in his work absolutely sets him apart as a skilled plastic surgeon. This truly was a life changing experience for me and I am beyond thrilled with the results. My tummy is flat and toned (my belly button is gorgeous!) and my breasts are beautiful and proportional to my body. The results are natural looking and beyond what I ever dreamed possible. Thanks to Dr. Lyle, I feel like a brand new person. The surgery not only gave me back my pre-pregnancy body but boosted my confidence and self-esteem and gave me a new outlook on life. I am absolutely overjoyed with my new body. Words could never express adequately the gratitude I feel to Dr. Lyle and his wonderful staff.

I am so grateful for Dr. Lyle and his staff. He has done several procedures on me that turned out wonderful and made me more confidant. My first procedure was extra fat and skin removal from my thighs that gave me the confidence to wear my skinny jeans. In December I received a brachioplasty and my results were amazing! The third procedure was a mini tummy tuck which was a revision from a tummy tuck I received from another practice that I definitely was not happy with. I had confidence that Dr. Lyle would fix this issue and I was 100 percent correct. Dr, Lyle and his staff are very professional as well as warm and welcoming. Thank you Dr. Lyle for giving me a body that I am estatic about and the confidence to wear anything that I want. I recommend Dr. Lyle 110 percent. He is amazing. I also want to add that all of my procedures were done under local anesthesia and I was comfortable through out the procedures! Thank you Dr. Lyle and your staff for giving me a new take on life and living!

What to Expect

Once released from our care, it is important to allow a week or two to recover at home. Draining tubes may be implanted near the incision areas to help control drainage, and compression medical garments should be worn to help with swelling. For the average person, it takes roughly 2 – 4 weeks to begin resuming light activities, but it could take longer depending on the level of invasiveness. Dr. Lyle finds that most of his patients are back to normal around 4 – 6 months. Skin removal surgery can be life changing for patients, with amazing results that are immediate. Finally, you will feel confident and wear the clothes you were too uncomfortable to wear and partake in activities without loose skin keeping you from the things you love to do.
