Plastic Surgery after Weight Loss in Newport Beach, Orange County

Newport Beach Body Contouring Patient 1

This 47 year old weight loss patient presented to Orange County Plastic Surgery for correction of her abdominal and thigh laxity. The patient had lost 147 pounds through gastric bypass surgery. On examination, the patient was found to have laxity and excess tissue of her abdomen, waists, lower back and buttocks. The patient also had significant deflation and sagging of her buttocks as well as both vertical and circumferential laxity of her thighs. The patient did not wish to have a lower body lift or buttock augmentation with her own tissue. Based on her desires, the patient underwent an extended abdominoplasty, monsplasty, liposuction, and a vertical thighplasty during a 6 hour surgery. The latter procedure reduces the width of the thighs and is a thigh reduction procedure. Her post-operative body contouring pictures were taken at about 6 months after her procedures.

Judge with a Critical Eye

When considering plastic surgery after weight loss or extreme body contouring, body lift before and after photos can say a thousand words. Look at before and after galleries with a critical eye. They can give you a good idea of the possible results and offer a preliminary indicator of a surgeon's experience and skill level. On Dr. Agha’s extensive gallery of total body lift and lower body lift pictures, look at the quality of scars, scar placement in relation to bikini or underwear, symmetry of our scars, and before and after photos from multiple angles to show symmetry of results. However, as you can appreciate, individual results may vary from one patient to another.
