Complement the results of your effort to be better
Losing weight drastically has many benefits. But after significant weight loss due to weight-loss surgery or lifestyle changes, the skin and tissues often lack the elasticity needed to accommodate the reduced body size. As a result, all the effort we have made can be impaired by the presence of a significant excess of skin or other problems related to this process.
If you have just lost weight significantly and are still not satisfied with the results, post-slimming plastic surgery may be one of the best alternatives. Body contouring surgery performed after significant weight loss removes excess skin and sagging fat and improves the shape of the underlying connective tissue. The result is a more proportionate appearance with smoother contours, which will allow you to enjoy 100% of the results of your effort.
Post weight loss plastic surgery is the perfect option to complement your lifestyle changes or your previous surgery. Book your appointment at Dr. Marisa Manzano and you will be one step closer to getting the body you really want.
During your first consultation, we will define the procedures necessary to achieve your goals along with a step-by-step action plan to achieve them. In this way, each case is unique; And we will adapt to your anatomy and the results you want to achieve to organize the treatment.
The plastic surgery procedures that we can perform in this body contouring surgery include the following:
This procedure, also known as “belt lipectomy,” is one of the most comprehensive for cases of heavy weight loss. During it, two very effective surgeries are combined: abdominoplasty and gluteoplasty. In this way, two of the most striking areas of the body are worked and are also among the most affected aesthetically by large weight losses.
The full bodylift can be combined with some of the other treatments mentioned above, with the aim of providing you with the best results. In the first consultation with me I will study your case and propose a personalized intervention plan based on your needs.
In general, post-weight loss surgery is indicated for people who have made a significant weight loss as a result of a lifestyle change or a previous operation. However, there are some pre-surgery considerations that you should know before undergoing treatment.
During the first consultation, Dr. Marisa Manzano will study your history and the goals you want to achieve to give you a personalized intervention plan. Post weight loss plastic surgery is a unique treatment and must be 100% adapted to each patient, so it is especially important to perform a pre-operation examination.
As we have already mentioned, this operation is 100% adapted to the personal history and needs of each patient. Therefore, it is very complicated to give an estimate on the price that the intervention may have.
During your first consultation with Dr. Marisa Manzano will receive a personalized intervention plan and a unique budget that adapts to your needs and your personal situation.
The results of post-weight loss plastic surgery can last a long time, even up to 10 years or more. In fact, this type of treatment is considered a permanent solution.
However, as we have already mentioned, surgery cannot correct lifestyle-related problems. In this regard, the best way to have lasting results is to maintain a stable weight and a regular exercise routine after recovery.
No. This intervention is designed for people who have already lost a lot of weight, either through another operation or thanks to changes in their lifestyle. However, this treatment can help you maximize the results of this process.
Being a complex surgery, recovery usually lasts between 4 and 6 weeks. However, the time can increase or decrease depending on factors such as your ability to regenerate and the number of areas that have been worked on.
The first weeks you will have to avoid making great efforts, and in general it is advisable to get a sick leave. However, you can soon gradually rejoin your normal life, until you stop noticing any kind of side effect.
