Post-Bariatric & After-Weight Loss Surgery

After losing a large amount of weight, whether from bariatric surgery or after pregnancy, or with diet and exercise, you may experience an excess of residual fat and loose skin in your face, neck arms, chest, waist, buttocks and thighs. Dr. Steven Yarinsky offers post-bariatric and after-weight loss surgery procedures that can contour your face and body by removing excess skin and fat. You may be considering a lower body lift procedure that addresses several areas of loose skin at once. Or you may only require recontouring of your face, neckline, arms, thighs, or breasts. All of these options can tighten the skin and give you a more toned slimmer and fit appearance.

Considered one of the best plastic surgeons in Saratoga Springs, Dr. Yarinsky was recently featured in Saratoga Today discussing the options available to address loose skin. Click here to read the entire article.

Who is a Candidate?

Intended Result

I chose Dr. Yarinsky and his team of professionals based on others’ reviews and the fact that he performed surgeries in his office suite. I am so glad that I did! Twelve years after having gastric bypass and maintaining my 160 lb weight loss, I felt it was finally time to complete the transformation into a healthy life by getting a mommy-makeover. Dr. Yarinsky and his staff have been courteous, professional, accommodating, and supportive. Dr. Yarinsky has great bed-side manner and is truly an artist with his plastic surgery skills. Despite the long trip to see him, it was so worth it. He is HIGHLY recommended; I truly cannot say enough good things about him and his team. THANK YOU Dr. Yarinsky for your attention to detail! Special thanks to Holly and Sue; your compassionate nursing will never be forgotten.

Lower Body Lift Procedure Description (Beltline Dermatolipectomy)

Recuperation and Healing

Other Options

Body contouring surgery after weight loss does not necessarily have to include a full lower body lift procedure. You may only need specific areas recontoured such as your arms, thighs, breasts, neck or face. Procedures to address these areas include:

Face and Neck Lift

A facelift is often performed along with a neck lift. Together, these procedures tighten skin on your face and neck for a more contoured, youthful profile and appearance

Arm Lift

Arm lifts can reduce extra fat and flabby skin from your upper arms for a thinner more contoured look. This procedure involves an incision made from the armpit to the inner elbow. Excess skin and fat is reduced and the remaining skin is tightened and reshaped. Arm lift surgery typically takes about one to three hours using general anesthesia and is performed on an outpatient basis. Patients can expect some bruising and swelling for a few weeks after arm lift surgery. Strenuous activities should be avoided for at least 6 weeks. Most patients can resume normal daily routines after about a week.

Thigh Lift

Thigh lift can effectively contour your thighs and treat loose, excess skin and fat. A thigh lift begins with incisions made from below the bikini line down to the thighs. Scars are hidden in your groin crease and in the fold beneath your buttocks. Once the excess skin and fat have been eradicated, the skin will be lifted and tightened for a smoother look. Thigh lift surgery typically takes about three hours to complete using general anesthesia and is performed as an outpatient. There will be some bruising and swelling in the days following thigh lift surgery. Tight-like compression garments worn for several weeks helps with the healing process. Pain and discomfort is controlled with medication. You should plan on taking it easy at home for at least one week. Many patients are able to return to normal daily activities after two to three weeks; however, strenuous activities should be avoided for at least six weeks after thigh lift surgery.

Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery can improve saggy excess skin in your breasts. The procedure tightens the remaining skin, moving the breasts and the nipples and areolae to a higher, “perkier” position.

The specific risks and the suitability of these procedures for you can be determined only at the time of your consultation with Dr. Yarinsky. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are unusual. Most people are very happy with the results, but no specific result can be guaranteed.

This procedure is done at our Joint Commission accredited office facility.
