Post-Weight Loss Plastic Surgery
Losing a significant amount of weight is a major achievement. Some patients who have met their weight loss goals may have an excess of skin around the abdomen, arms, legs, breasts or face--that's because the skin may have lost its elasticity and isn't able to shrink back to its former size or shape.
MUSC's Plastic Surgery Center offers the region's largest variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures, including body contouring surgery designed specifically for patients who have achieved significant weight loss. Procedures that remove skin or fat, tighten and lift can be used to help your clothes fit better and make you feel more comfortable performing your favorite activities.
