You have finally lost the extra weight and now you are feeling confident and beautiful, but the celebration is short-lived. Although you have a smaller body size, you still have cosmetic problems that diet and exercise cannot address, such as sagging breasts, loose skin on your thighs, arms, and trunk, and small pockets of stubborn fat on your abdomen and hips. Board-certified plastic surgeon Nathan Eberle, M.D., D.D.S., performs plastic surgery after weight loss for women in the Fort Lauderdale and Broward County areas.
WHAT IS PLASTIC SURGERY AFTER WEIGHT LOSS FOR WOMEN?
Carrying extra weight not only takes a toll on your health but also on your skin. Over time, the skin loses the elasticity that helps it shape to your contours. When the pounds come off, your skin does not “bounce back,” and instead, hangs loosely from your thighs, back, arms and abdomen. Your breasts may also hang lower on your chest. Another common problem that women deal with after weight loss is having small pockets of stubborn fat cells that are designed to persist on your body longer than other fat cells. These cells create bumps and bulges where you prefer to have smooth, sensual contours.
Our surgeons recommend plastic surgery after weight loss for women who want to finely tune their bodies after losing extra pounds. They may recommend procedures for the hips, abdomen, back, arms, thighs, breasts, and face.

Plastic surgery after weight loss helps women feel more feminine and satisfied with the results of the dedication to proper diet and exercise by:
- Removing excess, sagging skin.
- Reducing fatty bulges to create smooth, natural contours.
- Restoring breast volume and shape with implants or by lifting the breasts.
- Addressing common signs of aging that can result from having extra fat on your face and neck.
