There are many things that can cause your skin to look looser than you'd like: weight fluctuations, hormonal changes, and simple age can all be factors. At GLOW Surgical Arts, our highly trained Redwood City cosmetic surgeons understand how important the look of your skin can be to your overall confidence. This is why we offer a procedure called a skin lift which will address the excess skin and leave you with a tight, smooth, youthful appearance.
Depending on your body and your needs, there are several different types of skin lift procedures we may recommend. We will take the time to sit down with you and discuss your goals, as well as doing a physical examination to understand where the excess skin lies.
Post-weight loss contouring surgery is intended to remove any extra skin without leaving obvious scars, which is often the final touch your body needs. You might be amazed at the difference the removal of excess skin can have on a body which has recently been operated on.
Most patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery or have undergone significant weight loss qualify for skin lift surgery. However, there are certain qualifications you will need to meet for your safety. We recommend that you wait for a year after weight loss surgery or for at least three to six months after cosmetic surgery to ensure you have maintained your weight.
