Is There Such Thing as Massive Weight Loss Surgery?

While it is commendable for anyone to lose significant weight, it doesn’t bring about positive effects only. Some of the negative effects include the drooping and presence of excess skin, as well as lost of skin support due to drastic weight reduction. These effects can occur at almost any part of the body – from arms to thighs. It follows then that indeed surgical procedures are likely necessary to fix the unpleasant body effects of weight reduction.

But is there such a thing as a massive weight loss surgery?  From a plastic surgery perspective, massive weight loss surgery picks up the pieces after weight loss.  This kind of surgery is not intended to provide a great deal of actual weight loss but can help with the excess of skin that results. But there is no single surgery that is known as such or is intended exclusively to counter massive weight loss. Salt Lake City Plastic Surgeon Dr. Yates performs several body procedures catered to eliminate or minimize the effects of massive weight loss. With widely known expertise in body contouring procedures, Dr. Yates undertakes surgeries depending on a patient’s specific weight loss effect. These body surgeries include Tummy Tuck, Arm Lift, Breast Lift, and Thigh Lift.

While a lot of surgeons would combine these surgeries in a single procedural operation to a patient with multiple concerns, Dr. Yates prefer to perform body surgeries in separate operations or in stages. Combined procedures might save time and everything is perhaps finished in a single day, but combining surgeries entail a very high risk to the patient. More so, it is the general observation of Dr. Yates from his years of practice that a Staged Operation provides optimal outcomes from each component surgery.

Dr. York Yates is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon with a track record of successful body contouring procedures done mostly in Utah. He is reputed for his keen attention to details and in putting the safety of patients above other considerations.
