Pregnancy, weight loss, and the unfortunate effects of gravity can lead some people to develop areas of loose, hanging skin on their bodies. Unfortunately, this excess skin will not disappear on its own, even when a patient commits to eating healthy and exercising. For patients who wish to eliminate loose skin, plastic surgeon Michael Salzhauer, MD, offers various body contouring options including arm lift, thigh lift, and post-bariatric body sculpting.

Upper Arm Lift
Upper arm lift surgery is designed to correct sagging skin underneath the arms. To begin the procedure, the plastic surgeon at our practice makes an incision in the arm, through which he removes excess tissue and tightens muscles. Once the area has been re-contoured, the incisions are closed and the recovery period begins.
Thigh and Buttock Lifts
A thigh lift reduces loose skin in the thigh area to give an overall tighter appearance to the inner thigh. For some patients, the plastic surgeon at our practice will also lift the buttock area at the same time the thighs are being lifted.
Thigh and buttock lift are ideal for patients who are in relatively good shape with excess skin and fat in the thigh area. These procedures are often performed on patients who have lost a lot of weight through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery.
Post-Bariatric Body Sculpting
Watching your weight drop following bariatric surgery can be an extremely rewarding experience. However, as the pounds come off, excess skin is usually left behind, often causing patients to feel self conscious about their new bodies.
If you have lost a large amount of weight through bariatric surgery, our skilled plastic surgeon can help you complete your transformation by making your new, healthier body appear slimmer and more toned. He may recommend a combination of procedures including arm lift, thigh lift, buttock lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction to achieve the best results possible.
