Post-Bariatric Cosmetic Surgery

Following gastric bypass or extreme weight loss individuals may notice excess sagging skin. This sagging skin commonly develops around the face, neck, upper arms, breast, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs and can make your body contour appear irregular and misshapen.

If you have undergone dramatic weight loss either through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, and you are at your optimum weight loss goal, you may be a good candidate for this surgery and may wish to consider undergoing this procedure. . Dr. Blalock has a variety of procedures to improve these problems. Dr. Blalock can often combine certain procedures to maximize their benefit to you. Below are a list of procedures Dr. Blalock performs:

Arm Lift

Or otherwise known as brachioplasty, can remove the excess skin and fat deposits, leaving the upper arms with a more pleasing and youthful contour.

Breast Lift

A breast lift will raise and firm sagging, flat breasts. Some patients also may require breast implants to improve the shape and size. Incisions are placed around the nipple, from the nipple to the crease under the breast, and horizontally along the breast crease. .

Medical Thigh Lift

The medial thigh lift will lift and tighten the sagging skin of the inner thigh. Incisions are usually placed in the groin.


A panniculectomy is performed to remove the hanging pannus, or apron of skin, from the lower abdomen below the belly button. The excess skin and fat above the belly button are not removed.

Lower Body Lift

In one procedure, the sagging skin of the abdomen, outer thighs, buttocks, hips, and waist is corrected. Incisions extend completely around the body to remove a "belt" of excess skin and fat. Another common name for this procedure is a "belt lipectomy."
