Which Cosmetic Surgeries Do I Need After Losing a Lot of Weight? By Gaston Tessada on December 24, 2023

Here at Oasis Bariatrics in Tijuana, Mexico, our goal is to change lives through bariatric surgeries like gastric bypass and gastric sleeve. Our patients go on to achieve significant weight loss, but weight loss can also come with some unwelcome changes to the body, such as sagging, excess skin.

Patients at all stages of their weight loss journey ask my team and I about cosmetic surgery after bariatric surgery. I’m pleased to tell you that body contouring is very much an option after your weight loss procedure, and that our Tijuana practice offers several great choices to help you reclaim your figure. Take a look:

Remember: Cosmetic surgery after bariatric surgery is a personal choice, and everyone’s body is beautiful just as it is. Your health is the number-one goal of any bariatric procedure, and you should feel very proud of your weight loss achievement.

Though you do not need to pursue cosmetic enhancement after the fact, it can provide a significant boost to confidence and self-esteem for the right patients.

Popular Cosmetic Surgeries After Weight Loss Surgery

Our state-of-the-art surgical facility in Tijuana offers more than bariatric surgery — we can also help you achieve your desired look through personally tailored cosmetic options.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a popular option for patients after bariatric surgery. During this procedure, the surgeon artfully removes excess abdominal skin and tightens the remaining skin to create smoother contours.

The tummy tuck procedure can also easily be combined with liposuction to target stubborn pockets of excess fat that may remain even after significant weight loss.

Breast Lift

Many women are left with drooping breasts after massive weight loss, which can create feelings of self-consciousness. A breast lift can help you reclaim your feminine silhouette and comfort in your own skin.

In this procedure, the surgeon removes excess breast skin and reshapes the tissue to create a more youthful bustline that sits higher on the chest. They can also reshape or reposition the areolas for more proportionate results.

You can also consider combining a breast reduction or breast augmentation with implants along with your breast lift if the volume of your breasts is an area of concern.

Body Contouring

Think of body contouring as a customized “lift” that can target certain areas or your whole body, depending on your individual needs. Your body contouring plan can include breast surgery, an arm lift, thigh light, buttock lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction throughout for a true head-to-toe transformation.

Choosing a combined cosmetic treatment plan can help you achieve your goals in fewer procedures, saving you time and money.

Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is like a body contouring treatment plan with a special emphasis on helping mothers restore their pre-pregnancy figures.

Pregnancy and birth can take a toll on your body, and if massive weight loss enters the equation, the changes may make it difficult to feel comfortable in your own skin. Your mommy makeover will be personally designed to help you feel like yourself once again.
