After extensive weight loss, many people begin to see excess skin sagging in areas such as the abdomen, arms, thighs, breasts, and face. Dr. Beckenstein performs post weight loss surgery in Birmingham to help people from Montomery, Tuscaloosa, Huntsville, and throughout Alabama get rid of excess skin and feel more comfortable and confident.
Post Weight Loss Surgery Procedures
Our patients who have lost a significant amount of weight through surgery are often faced with the difficult decision of undergoing corrective surgery in order to fully benefit from losing the weight. Dr. Beckenstein will take the time to help each patient choose the post weight loss surgery that is right for them.
Panniculectomy, abdominoplasty, and sometimes liposuction are the procedures of choice to improve the appearance of the abdomen.
A brachioplasty (arm lift) can correct the excess skin in the upper arms and a thigh lift can improve the contours of the inner and/or outer thighs. A circumferential or belt lipectomy may be indicated for patients with redundancy of the lower body including, the thighs and gluteal areas (buttocks).
Each of these post weight loss surgery procedures leaves a lengthy scar which is usually worth the trade-off of removing the redundant tissues. Dr. Beckenstein will carefully evaluate you and determine which type of post weight loss surgery is best suited for you. Contact our office today to schedule your body contouring consultation with Dr. Beckenstein.

For those who have had bariatric surgery and wish to undergo cosmetic surgery by Dr. Beckenstein, it is important to assure that you are metabolically able to undergo these post weight loss surgery procedures. Iron deficiency anemia and other conditions often result from bariatric procedures and can increase the risk of complications. Before your post weight loss surgery can take place, we will require you to undergo an evaluation at our office to assess these areas of concern to assure a safe course for you!
