Major weight loss is a significant accomplishment, whether by dieting alone or after bariatric surgery. If you have taken the time and energy to invest into your overall health, you owe it to yourself to look as good as you feel. Fitting into new, smaller clothing enhances the excitement you feel when you step on a scale. You are healthier, happier, and more active. Unfortunately, the life changing transformation you have accomplished has likely left you with multiple areas of stretched out and unsightly skin and soft tissue. Many of our Chicago plastic surgery patients feel uncomfortable with areas of excess skin after weight loss, and seek help at our practice.
Excess skin is unsightly and can disrupt your ability to participate in physical activities. Excess loose skin can also make you self-conscious about wearing certain outfits. After all the work you’ve put into losing the weight, shouldn’t you have the freedom to wear what you want and look the way you have always wanted? At David Shifrin MD, cosmetic surgery can be the final step to complete your transformation.
