Male After Weight Loss Surgery Reviews
"Dr. Beck was the second plastic surgeon with whom I consulted. I'm a 51 year old male who had lost 80 lbs and needed a significant abdominoplasty and related liposuction on my flanks. Dr. Beck has excellent patient communication skills, kept me informed throughout the process and helped me get prepared pre-surgery to minimize issues during recovery. I would highly recommend him for any cosmetic procedures and I would not hesitate to go see him again myself for any follow-up work."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / May 15, 2017

Suite of Procedures
Dr. Beck consults with weight loss patients to determine what surgical techniques make the most sense. Loose skin can remain in the arms, abdomen and in the lower body. He will develop a surgical plan to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals. He will also determine if these procedures can be performed at once, of if they should be staged over time. These procedures include:
Body contouring is the procedure name given to any surgery that removes skin and fat to create a more contoured look. This can take place for most body parts include the arms, breasts, abdomen, buttock, thighs and neck.
Loose skin is a common reminder that a significant weight loss has occurred. While some loose skin can be hidden, the arms, unfortunately, cannot. An arm lift removes loose skin that hangs from the underside of the upper arm to create a tighter, more toned arm appearance. The results following this surgery can oftentimes be very dramatic.
Gynecomastia is a condition where excess tissue develops in the chest of a man giving the appearance of female breasts. Gynecomastia surgery can correct this condition and create a flatter, more toned chest. It uses a combination of liposuction and skin tightening to achieve a more masculine appearance.
Lower Body Lift
A lower body lift addresses the lower body and removes loose and hanging skin following a weight loss. Skin can hang drastically after a massive weight loss. This surgery often uses a 360 incisional approach to remove skin from the stomach, hips, flanks, lower back, buttock and thighs. It is a procedure that provides major improvement, allowing men to wear more fitted clothing and resume a normal, active lifestyle.
A thigh lift addresses the upper and lower thighs, as well as the outer and inner thigh area. It trims away and removes hanging skin and then lifts the remaining skin for a more contoured leg appearance. This gives way for a man to be able to exercise, run and be more active following a weight loss.
A tummy tuck is a procedure that tightens the abdominal wall. It is very common among weight loss patients who have loose skin that hangs in the lower abdomen. It is usually the first surgery a man will consider once his weight loss has been achieved.
Male After Weight Loss Surgery During/After Surgery
After weight loss surgery is sometimes not only a desire, but a necessity for men who have undergone a significant weight loss. For many men, it is the only way to achieve a tighter skin appearance and complete their weight loss goals. While scarring is a part of this process, the incisions are carefully placed so that they can often be concealed under clothing. The removal of loose and hanging skin makes such a huge impact for most men, that the scarring becomes secondary. This surgery does have a longer recovery period than most. It will depend on how many procedures were performed in one setting, as well as the extent of skin removal.
