Life After Weight Loss

Losing a significant amount of weight, either through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, is a life-changing event. Sometimes, skin doesn't conform to your new body shape and many people have problems with loose skin that may cause difficulty with rashes, walking, or fitting into clothes. Life After Weight Loss (LAWL) is based on the creative application of plastic surgery techniques. We offer a comprehensive, tailored selection of effective plastic surgery-based options that helps you meet your weight-loss goals.

Available LAWL Procedures

Depending on the nature and location of loose skin, the LAWL solution might include any of the following procedures:

  • Tummy Tuck
  • Thighs and Buttocks Lift
  • Arm Lift
  • Female Breast Reshaping
  • Male Chest Reshaping
  • Face and Neck Lift
  • Liposuction
