With surgical procedures like gastrointestinal bypass, significant amounts of weight is lost is a very short period of time. This often leaves loose and sagging skin in areas such as the thighs, midsection, chest, and arms. It can also produce a sagging and more aged look to the face.
When excess skin and stubborn fat deposits are present throughout the body, board-certified Manchester plastic surgeon Dr. George Chatson may recommend a tummy tuck or body lift surgery to help restore proper contours. These techniques will not, however, assist in restoring a firm and youthful facial appearance.
If your face has been obscured by stubborn fat deposits and loose skin following weight loss, Dr. Chatson may recommend neck liposuction, facelift surgery, or a combination of facial procedures designed to target this delicate and highly visible area. The best way to learn which procedures are ideally suited to meet your needs is through a one-on-one consultation with our experienced plastic surgeon.
