Our talented surgeons at Mangat Plastic Surgery can correct this condition, employing advanced skin tightening techniques for the final step on your journey, allowing you to enjoy the rewards of your weight loss and have a trim, smooth figure.

Am I a candidate for skin tightening?

Good candidates for skin tightening surgery include those who have lost a significant amount of weight through diet, exercise, bariatric surgery, or a combination. You should be at or near your goal weight to undergo skin tightening surgery. If you undergo body contouring surgery too early, you may need revision surgery. Skin tightening candidates have loose, hanging skin on any of the following body areas:

  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Flanks
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Breasts

It is common for rashes or skin irritation to develop from skin folds, and a quantity of excess skin can make it more difficult for you to exercise and engage in various physical activities. To avoid complications during and after surgery, you should be in good general health and not smoke.

Advanced surgical techniques to tighten and firm your body after weight loss

Each person is unique, and at Mangat Plastic Surgery in the Vail Valley, we perform a wide range of custom surgical procedures to create a more aesthetic appearance. Your customized skin tightening procedure may include:

  • Tummy tuck: Tummy tuck surgery targets loose skin on the stomach, weakened abdominal muscles, and the belly button. It involves a curved horizontal incision in the lower abdomen, in an area that remains hidden by undergarments and bathing suits. To reconstruct the belly button, a circular incision is made around the belly button.
  • Arm lift: Arm lift surgery targets flabby skin on the upper arms. This procedure may involve liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue and an incision in the armpit, possibly extending down the length of the inner arm to the elbow. These incisions allow our surgeons to tighten the underlying structures and the skin.
  • Thigh lift: Thigh lift techniques target excess skin on the back, front, inside, or outside of the thighs. The technique and incision will depend on the degree and location of the excess skin.
  • Buttock lift: The buttock lift procedure treats loose skin and uneven fat distribution on the butt. We will choose an incision technique that will allow for sufficient skin removal. In some cases, an implant may be placed to augment the size and shape of the buttocks.
  • Body lift: Body lift surgery targets loose skin on the back, buttocks, thighs, and stomach. First, our surgeons address the backside, and then they perform tummy tuck and thigh lift techniques through the frontal incisions.
  • Breast lift: Men and women may have loose, hanging skin on the breasts. A breast lift, or mastopexy, can be used to tighten and lift your breasts and adjust the size and position of the nipples.
