After Weight Loss Surgery
Those who lose a significant amount of weight are to be commended, having overcome a big roadblock that tremendously affects the lives of so many. In some cases, however, while their new figure represents a huge accomplishment, those who have lost a large amount of weight can be met with new frustrations.

Regardless of where the skin deformity exists, surgical intervention is often needed to reduce the issue. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kirk Moore offers after weight loss surgery for Midvale, UT men and women. This life-changing treatment provided at Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah can be the final step in your weight loss journey.

The ideal candidates for skin removal surgery are those who have loose skin due to losing a significant amount of weight. Generally, this issue is noticed early on as the body gets smaller. If you have hanging skin, after weight loss surgery performed by Dr. Moore can remove the deformity and secure the underlying tissue for a healthy, tighter look. It is important that patients seeking this surgery be at their goal weight before undergoing this procedure.
Cosmetic skin removal surgery is generally considered a major treatment. It is performed using general anesthesia and can take about 3 – 7 hours, depending on how many procedures are combined. In most cases, an overnight stay is necessary. Fat removal is typically used during surgery to remove isolated fat pockets, followed by skin excision. Surgical skin removal does require larger incisions than less invasive cosmetic surgeries so scarring will surely result. During surgery, every attempt is made by Dr. Moore to place the incisions as inconspicuously as possible. Dr. Moore or a member of his team will give you in-depth scar care instructions so that your marks heal as flatly and smoothly as possible.
What to Expect
Once released from our on-site AAAASF-accredited operating room, it is important to take several days to recover at home. Tubes may be placed near the incision sites to help control drainage, and medical garments should be worn to limit swelling. On average, it takes roughly 2 – 4 weeks until you will feel good enough to resume everyday activities. However, depending on the treatment plan, it could take longer. Dr. Moore finds that most of his patients are fully healed around 4 – 6 months following the procedure. This surgery can be life-changing for patients and provide visible results that are immediate. After your long battle with weight loss, you will finally be able to wear the clothes you want and move freely without excess skin slowing you down.
