Bariatric Surgery, Weight Loss and Sagging Skin

Whether for health reasons or appearance, millions of men and women successfully lose weight each year. University Hospitals Digestive Health Institute has successfully helped many of our patients lose significant weight through the Bariatric Surgery, Metabolic & Nutrition Center

Yet sometimes with substantial weight loss through restrictive dieting or bariatric surgery, it is difficult for the skin and tissue to adapt to the new, slimmer body size.

Over time, weight reduction may result in:

  • Sagging breasts
  • Excessive amounts of skin hanging from under the arms or legs
  • Abdominal skin hanging around the sides and the lower back

The expert surgeons at the Center for Body Contouring & Reconstruction specialize in performing a variety of targeted procedures to remove or tighten excess and sagging skin in different areas of the body.

When a patient comes to University Hospitals, he or she is evaluated by one of our highly skilled plastic surgeons, who will consider specific medical and cosmetic needs in order to create an individualized surgical plan.

Each of the procedures used at the Center for Body Contouring & Reconstruction are accomplished using the latest surgical advancements. No matter which procedure the patient selects, UH plastic surgeons are committed to achieving optimum results.
