Losing weight and keeping it off is a huge accomplishment. Many of our cosmetic surgery patients are in the post-bariatric stage –have undergone bariatric surgery, lost weight, and kept it off. Even after incredible weight loss, many patients still have loose skin that affects their confidence and appearance.
Dr. Frenzel has dual fellowship training in bariatric surgery and cosmetic plastic surgery. He helps men and women across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and beyond, to not only reclaim their physical health, but feel good about their body and their future.
If you have loose skin that’s dragging you down, consider the benefits of cosmetic surgery. From loose skin around the arms and abdomens, to sagging breasts, on both men and women, there are certain areas of the body that are more prone to loose skin after weight loss.
The arm lift surgery, brachioplasty, is when Dr. Frenzel removes excess skin and fat around the arms, while simultaneously improving the tone and proportion of the arms. If you avoid wearing short sleeve shirts because you’re self-conscious about showing your arms, let us help you gain the confidence you deserve.
With tighter, skinnier arms, even small tasks like waving goodbye are an achievement and motivator.
During the arm lift procedure, Dr. Frenzel makes an incision on the inner part of the arm that extends from the inner elbow into the armpit and chest. Dr. Frenzel will discuss your specific incision needs during a consultation. Anesthesia, general or intravenous sedation, is administered, and the fatty tissue in the arm is removed through liposuction. The remaining skin is pulled tight and sutured together.
Another popular post-bariatric cosmetic surgery is the tummy tuck. Stomach fat is incredibly stubborn. Even after weight loss surgery, it’s not uncommon for patients to fight their belly fat and excess skin around the abdomen. An abdominoplasty, tummy tuck, is the perfect solution for post-bariatric male and female patients who have loose skin in the abdomen.
During the full abdominoplasty, the muscle structure is tightened and excess skin is removed from the upper and lower abdomen. An incision is made in the mid to lower abdomen under the belly button area. Then the skin is lifted to the rib cage area.
This procedure leaves patients with a tight, wrinkle-free stomach. Many patients who have gone through this procedure notice a completely new appreciation for life—having the confidence to display their stomach, to not have to fight their belly when buttoning pants, is a true self-confidence booster.
Breast augmentation is the final touch for women who have lost weight and kept it off. When women undergo bariatric surgery, the breasts are one of the first areas of the body to lose the weight. As a result, women are often frustrated with the sagging breast tissue that remains.
Breast augmentation can transform your confidence, give you a beautiful, curvy silhouette, and boost your self-esteem to a level unimaginable. Transform your body and transform your mind with post-bariatric cosmetic plastic surgery.
