Excess Skin Removal After Massive Weight Loss; LBL or Fleur-de Lis Abdominoplasty? (photo)
I have lost 160 lbs with the aid of gastric bypass. I have consulted with three plastic surgeons, and two have recommended a vertical abdominal incision (one w/fleur-de-lis abdomioplasty, one w/belt lipectomy and added vertical cut), while the third thought the added vertical incision would be the wrong choice for my body type (pear shape). I know I have a lot of skin to be removed but I am afraid of the additional scar. Would I still be able to get a good result with just the lower body lift?
Massive Weight Loss Surgical Options
Your loose skin extends circumferentially, so your skin excision must also be circumferential. Vertical component? Maybe.
LBL or Fleur-de Lis Abdominoplasty?
