After successfully losing a large amount of weight you may be left with loose or excess skin. Cosmetic surgery can help to reshape your body with procedures including breast uplift, tummy tuck, arm lift, leg lift and buttock lift.
Your Spire consultant
will go over the issues carefully with you
These procedures are different to those performed on non-weight-loss surgery patients and require specialist surgeons. Our expert plastic and cosmetic surgeons are experienced in this type of surgery and will discuss your options carefully with you before going ahead. Surgery may need to be tailored around the port of a gastric band, for example.
To achieve the best body shape, you should be close to your ideal body weight before having this type of cosmetic surgery.
