5 out of 5 stars Thigh Lift

Lower Body Lift revision, Spiral Thigh Lift, Breast Lift - San Antonio, TX

Exceptional first consult. Dr. Fisher conveys both warmth and competence, a feat not achieved by many physicians. I trust his eye for aesthetics and I am confident he'll be able to give me a more feminine figure, without all the sagging skin. He was helpful in telling me what *didn't* need to be done, too, even though more procedures would have benefited him financially. Support staff were...

Lower Body Lift W/Dr. Fisher's Signature Augmentation Procedure, Extended Breast Lift, and Arm Lift. San Antonio, TX

I am so excited to be having this procedure done. I have struggled with my weight all my life and will finally be back at my goal weight and be able to get rid of all this excess skin. I lost the weight this time by making a lifestyle change. I have tried lots of things in the past, such as SmartLipo, HCG, and other fads. The weight ALWAYS came back. They were just quick fixes. This time it'll...

Thigh Lift and Arm Lift. San Antonio, TX

I am having a thigh lift and an arm lift in two day by Dr. Peter Fisher in San Antonio. He comes highly recommended so I am hoping for excellent results. I am, of course, very nervous. I am prepared just a little nervous about the recovery. I am so ready to get rid of my saggy thighs and arms. I am not a MWL person but I have just lost weight over the years and that old thing called...

Breast Lift with Implants and Arm Lift Following 95# Weight Loss (Gastric Sleeve) - San Antonio, TX

Nov 2013 I had the gastric sleeve and lost 95 pounds in 7 months. I needed to have a lot of work done to finish my transformation and I sought out Dr. Peter Fisher at the recommendation of my bariatric surgeon. I decided to have a breast augmentation with implants and arm lift first (shortest recovery time). I could not have asked for better results! I am 6 months out from my first...

Lower Body Lift with Spiral Thigh Lift Following 95# Weight Loss After Gastric Sleeve. - San Antonio, TX

I have been overweight my entire adult life. In 2013 I had the gastric sleeve and lost 95# within 6 months. I was thrilled with my weight loss, but not thrilled with the extra skin that was left hanging on my body. Six months ago I met Dr. Peter Fisher and without hesitation had a breast lift with augmentation and brachioplasty. I was thrilled with my results. Fast forward six months, and...

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

Post MWL Lower Body Lift, Spiral Medial Thigh Lift and Breast Lift with Augmentation - San Antonio, TX

Through diet changes (weight watchers and cleaning eating) and lots of exercise, I lost around 110lbs. As someone who had been overweight/obese since childhood, I knew excess skin would be an issue for me. Although, I was told by many people to give it time and exercise, the reality was such that the skin would not simply go away. After much consideration, I decided that I was interested in...

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

Lower Body Lift, San Antonio, TX

I am married and have three children ages: 13, 10, and 6. I have fought my weight for my entire life. I got up to 297 pounds and refused to cross that 300 mark so I had weight loss surgery. I am down to 190 pounds and have been for about a year. I would like to get lower, but seem to have reached that point where my body is comfortable and will not budge. I am left with a lot of...

5 out of 5 stars Thigh Lift

Big Scary Thigh Lift with Dr. Peter Fisher - MWL Plastics Specialist - San Antonio, TX

Through VSG, therapy, diet and exercise I have managed to lose ~215 lbs. Of course, with this amount of weight loss on my resume, this left me looking like a deflated mess that nothing but surgery will fix. I get so tired of folks thinking you can fix all loose skin through diet and exercise and/or maybe some magical cocoa butter concoction! Just had these conversations recently…once on a...

WHY DO SO FEW POST MASSIVE WEIGHT LOSS PATIENTS UNDERGO PLASTIC SURGERY?

I decided to write this blog after giving a lecture on post bariatric body contouring last night. I was presenting at a bariatric support group meeting and what got me thinking was a comment the bariatric surgeon running the group said during my introduction. He stated that only about 5-10% of post bariatric patients undergo plastic surgery. That night, I started thinking about that percentage. Why so few? I will try to answer my own question with three main reasons for not having post...

Lower Body Lift - Post Massive Weight-Loss Body Contouring

Lower Body Lift – Post Massive Weight-loss Body Contouring This article discusses the work horse of post massive weight loss body contouring: the lower body lift. Also known as the belt lipectomy, circumferential abdominoplasty and body lift, the lower body lift is the most sought-after procedure following massive weight loss. Why is this procedure called a lower body lift? The “body” part comes from the 360-degree incision all the way around the body which allows lifting of...

Post Massive Weight Loss Body Contouring - Dr. Peter Fisher, M.D.

Over the past ten years, the body contouring procedures following massive weight loss have increased more than ten-fold. Primarily performed by plastic surgeons, this area of surgery has essentially become a subspecialty of plastic surgery, making up to 80% of my practice. Like many regular cosmetic procedures, there is a definite learning curve as well as a higher complication rate to body contouring surgery. Although essentially cosmetic, a considerable amount of our reconstructive...
