Massive Weight Loss plastic surgery procedures to lift and tighten the loose skin
Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery. We see quite a few patients who have lost over 100 pounds following gastric bypass, or gastric sleeve surgery. On occasion we even see patients who have lost over 200 pounds! This is a great accomplishment, and something to be very proud of, but as a consequence they require multiple plastic surgery procedures to lift and tighten the loose skin. The surgery required depends on how loose the skin is, and what result the patient desires. Insurance rarely pays for this plastic surgery because it is considered cosmetic and not medically necessary.
