When to Consider Plastic Surgery after Bariatric Weight Loss

  • If you have experienced bariatric weight loss from bariatric surgery or diet and exercise.
  • If you have sagging skin in multiple areas, including the face and neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, back and thighs.
  • If your weight has stabilized following bariatric surgery or diet and exercise. This may be 18 months or more after your weight loss.


Here are some of the benefits of bariatric weight loss skin surgery:

  • Gets rid of loose skin so you can fit into your clothes better.
  • Gets rid of overhanging skin that might be causing painful chafing, rashes, and infections.
  • Improves your self-esteem


Although bariatric weight loss skin surgery leaves scars with the combination of other procedures, most patients find them to be an acceptable tradeoff for an improved appearance of their physique and skin. Dr. Steinbrech may perform multiple procedures below at the same time, while at other times, he may recommend a different approach based on the patient’s goals.


The pannus is the name for the overhanging skin of the lower abdomen that typically occurs after major weight loss for male patients. A panniculectomy removes the hanging pannus skin from the lower abdomen below the belly button. Liposuction, lower body lift and tummy tuck are procedures related to panniculectomy and are often performed combining these procedures.

Lower Body Lift

Also known as the belt lipectomy, this procedure reshapes the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, and buttocks through an incision made around the circumference of the body. It is designed for those who have loose skin in the buttocks, back of the thighs, hips, side of the thighs, front of the thighs, inner thighs, abdomen, and relatively thin layers of fat below the skin in these areas. Liposuction, abdominoplasty, and panniculectomy are procedures usually performed with a lower body lift following a bariatric weight loss.

Tummy Tuck

Also known as abdominoplasty, this procedure removes loose, excess skin and fat and tightens slack fascia, removing stretch marks and excess skin in the lower abdomen below the belly button area.


Liposuction can improve the contour of your flanks, hips, chest, thighs, neck, upper arms, and knees. It is frequently used in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures following dramatic weight loss.

Breast Lift

A breast lift for men improves the appearance of sagging and uneven breasts, decreased breast volume, drooping nipples, and stretched areolas, to help improve the appearance of bariatric weight loss and excess skin around the breast area.

While the incisions are strategically placed and the stitching techniques often perfected, even the best plastic surgeons leave scars after bariatric plastic surgery. Before moving forward it’s important to have a clear understanding of how the scars are likely to look after you’ve fully healed.
