After Weight Loss Surgery in Fredericksburg, VA

What Is After Weight Loss Surgery?

Individuals who accomplish significant weight loss are usually ecstatic, overcoming a big roadblock in life. Often, unfortunately, while their new shape represents a proud accomplishment, some individuals will face additional frustrations. This is often due to the hanging skin left behind on the body. Significant weight loss commonly leaves men and women with skin that cannot shrink to the new, slimmer figure. No matter where the sagging skin resides, plastic surgery is needed to reduce the issue. Plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki offer skin removal surgery for Fredericksburg, VA men and women. This is usually a life-changing treatment at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg and is also a lasting step in their personal transformation.

How Does After Weight Loss Surgery Work?

Cosmetic skin removal surgery is typically considered a major treatment. It is performed using anesthesia and lasts about 3 – 7 hours, varying based on the number of procedures combined. Liposuction is often incorporated during the procedure to remove fat, followed by skin removal. Surgical skin removal does make larger incisions than other cosmetic procedures so scarring is associated with this treatment. During this procedure, every attempt is made by Drs. Heppe, Bautista, and Aflaki to create the incisions as discreetly as possible.

What Are the Benefits of After Weight Loss Surgery?

Saw Dr. Bautista for breast augmentation and extremely pleased with my experience. He was patient with my questions and educated me on realistic results. I’m overwhelmingly happy with the outcome and without hesitation recommend him!

I had such a great experience here. Everyone in the office is so helpful and professional. I’ve had 5 large babies and had quite the muffin top situation going on. I can’t believe the difference the tummy tuck made. I’ve heard of other people traveling far away to get procedures done, but I’m super grateful we have such a high caliber plastic surgery office here in Fredericksburg!

I had a breast augmentation done in May and I could not be happier. Dr Heppe and his staff were very professional, helpful and supportive in making sure that what I wanted is what I got. I’ve waited my entire adult life for this surgery and would do it again with this team in a second. A+ all the way around!

The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.
