Who Needs Skin Tightening Surgery?

If you want to tighten skin after weight loss or after pregnancy, it’s best to consider what type of procedure is best for your body. Men and women are able to have the procedures performed.

  • Tummy tuck: A tummy tuck is best for those with weakened abdominal muscles and stretched skin. Women often request this surgery post-pregnancy. The procedure can be performed on its own or as part of a mommy makeover.
  • Arm lift: Even weight training doesn’t have the ability to tighten the loose skin on your arms. An arm lift is the best option following massive weight loss that’s produced sagging skin on the underside of your arms.
  • Thigh lift: When weight loss occurs in the legs, excess skin can make it difficult to be mobile or wear certain clothes. The thigh lift will remove sagging skin on the outside, inside, front, and back of your thighs.
  • Buttock lift: Transform your buttock with this procedure that removes loose skin and treats uneven fat distribution on the butt.
  • Body lift: For patients who have lost massive amounts of weight and have loose skin in several different areas, a body lift can help the stomach, things, buttocks, and back.
  • Breast lift: A Vail, CO top plastic surgeon will tighten the breast skin envelope and reposition the nipples to give your breasts a youthful appearance.
