What is Surgical Skin Tightening?

Surgical skin tightening has the goal of removing drooping, and hanging skin after major weight loss or aging, helping the patient to enjoy a more attractive appearance, enhanced range of motion and energy, better hygiene, and increased comfort. A body lift is a term used to describe a combination of procedures to remove excess skin from multiple areas of the physique at once. 

Am I a Candidate for Skin Tightening?

You may be a candidate for a body lift and skin tightening procedure if…

  • You suffer from excess skin that has lost its elasticity and droops off the body due to massive weight loss (often with the help of bariatric surgery), pregnancy, or the aging process.
  • You still have localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.
  • You suffer from damaged supporting tissues that make it difficult or impossible to firm up certain areas of your body.

To help with these difficulties, board-certified surgeon Dr. Burgdorf offers a number of post-bariatric body contouring procedures, also called body lift procedures. These are intended to eliminate the excess skin and fat that often remain following massive weight loss, as well as repair any damaged underlying tissues.

Skin Tightening After Pregnancy

The experience and aftermath of pregnancy can bring with it an incredible mixture of positive and negative emotional states, some of which relate directly to the significant changes that pregnancy has wrought on your body. One of the most affected physical areas is the midsection. Your skin and abdominal muscles stretch out, and they may struggle to return to their former state once your pregnancy has ended. As a result, you may be left with stretch marks and, in some cases, a flap or pooch of skin that hangs down from your belly.

Dr. Burgdorf can help you achieve an appearance closer to your pre-pregnancy body through the abdominoplasty procedure, more commonly known as the tummy tuck.

This procedure helps tighten your skin, reduce obvious stretch marks, eliminate any overhanging skin pooch, restore your belly button, and make your abdominal muscles visible again. The surgery is known to boost self-confidence and allow patients to enjoy a broader range of clothing choices.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Burgdorf will discuss various factors with you to determine if now is the right time for you to have an abdominoplasty. Some questions he will consider are whether you have lost most of your pregnancy weight, whether you plan to have more children, and whether you’ve had a C-section or other abdominal surgery. He will educate you fully on all your options and will help you decide not only whether a tummy tuck is right for you but also when your tummy tuck should be performed to help you achieve maximum and lasting aesthetic results.
