Improve the Appearance of Your Body After Weight Loss with These Procedures

Posted February 08, 2024 in Arm Lift

After losing a significant amount of weight, many patients still feel uncomfortable with the way they look. The truth is, while weight loss is an exceptional achievement, it is often associated with loose skin and stubborn pockets of fat, both of which may contribute to an unflattering appearance. Dr. Mabourakh understands that patients want to enjoy their new figures after losing weight, instead of stressing about new cosmetic concerns, which is why he provides a range of cosmetic procedures to help you look and feel your best.

Arm Lift/Thigh Lift

Loose skin left behind after weight loss can be a source of insecurity in many individuals. This skin, often found on the legs, arms, and other areas, can be physically uncomfortable and may even be painful in some cases. To improve significant amounts of excess skin and reveal the slim body underneath, arm and thigh lifts may be beneficial.

Arm lift: An arm lift is a type of surgery that improves drooping skin on the arms while smoothing the supportive tissues to create a more defined arm contour.

Thigh lift: Like arm lift, a thigh lift is performed to reshape and tighten the thighs for an improved, more proportionate appearance.

Breast Lift

It is common for the breasts to droop after a major weight fluctuation. Breast lift surgery creates a more youthful, round, and perky breast shape. The benefit of this surgery is that it also repositions the nipple and reduces the size of the areola so that these features are in harmony with the rest of the breast. Dr. Mabourakh may choose from several breast lift techniques, depending on the correction needed. The specific technique chosen will determine the location of the incision, which may be placed:

  • Around the areola
  • Circling the areola then vertically down to the breast crease
  • Around the areola, downward to the breast crease, then horizontally along the crease


Liposuction after weight loss is an excellent solution for those who are interested in fine-tuning their appearance after major weight loss. This even applies to patients who may have reached their goal weight. It is normal for the body to not look exactly as you may have hoped after shedding the pounds, and resistant fat deposits throughout the body may contribute to this appearance. Liposuction targets these areas and eliminates unwanted fat in ways that are not achievable through diet and exercise alone.
