Loose skin after massive weight loss

If you have 2 or more surgeons working on you at the same time as is typical in Brazil I do not think that would be an issue. I personally like to work alone and would not be willing to do all of that in one sitting. The key factor is safety and how long you will need to be on the operating table to complete the procedures without having the surgeon rush through the procedures.

My response to your question/post does not represent formal medical advice or constitute a doctor patient relationship. You need to consult with i.e. personally see a board certified plastic surgeon in order to receive a formal evaluation and develop a doctor patient relationship.

Bodylift After Massive Weight Loss

You should be extremely pleased with your successful weight loss and commitment to a healthy athletic life style.  The body lift and breast lift will go a long ways towards revealing the changes that you have earned by your discipline and hard work.  These are procedures that can be safely combined in the right circumstances.  It is important that you be in good nutritional status and good general health.  The procedure should take no more than five to six hours.  If your experienced and board certified surgeon estimates a longer operative time, then it might be wise to have this in two stages.

Multiple Procedures

Based on your pictures, you look to be a good candidate for surgery.  My suggestion would be to do the tummy tuck, flank and lower back lipo first and give yourself plenty of time to heal prior to doing any more procedures.


Good Luck.
