Cosmetic surgery is popular after weight loss surgery with having a brand new body. The sole purpose of cosmetic surgery is to enhance the appearance of any part of the body. Those seeking cosmetic surgery after bariatric surgery are typically looking to improve aesthetic qualities, being proportionate with lost weight, and overall symmetrical appearance. The main cosmetic procedures past patients want is skin removal surgery(arm lift or body lift), mommy makeover, tummy tuck.
Plastic Surgery in Mexico
Plastic surgery in Mexico is designed to shape, reconstruct, or correct abnormalities on the face, body, skin, and other areas of the body. The primary goal of plastic surgery is to improve body function through reconstruction. Plastic surgery in Mexico is growing with procedures like breast reconstruction, scar revision, cleft palate, and other reconstructive procedures.
It’s important to note that insurance companies only cover surgery if it improves the patient’s body functions. Although, after successfully meeting ultimate weight loss goals, many see it as a reward for all their hard work.

There are countless surgeries one may endure after excess weight loss. The operations needed for each patient depends on where their weight loss occurred, where their influence originated, and their success in toning areas of the body.
Arm Lift in Mexico
The Arm Lift, known medically as a Brachioplasty, is a cosmetic procedure for removing excess skin. Arm lifts also reshape the upper arm through supportive tissue from the underarm or near the elbow. It is used to treat loose, sagging skin that many bariatric patients are left with after weight loss surgery. Weight changes, aging, and heredity can result in drooping, sagging appearance of the arms.
While exercise can strengthen the muscle tone, it can not address any excess skin there that has lost its elasticity or weakened tissues there. An arm lift can effectively reduce excess fat and skin in the area and result in a more toned and balanced look.
Body Lift in Mexico
A Body Lift is used to tone any underlying tissue that is displayed as either skin or fat. The body lift is also effective in improving the overall body shape through removing excess skin and fat. There are two types of body lifts bariatric patients may need; upper body lift(loose skin on the back, abdomen, bra line, etc.) and lower body lift(thighs-inner, outer, or posterior, groin, buttocks). Any area of the body that has become loose from cellulite is usually treated with body lift in Mexico. The procedure removes the skin that has lost its elasticity from rapid weight loss while maintaining the healthy, tight skin.
Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation in Mexico
A Breast Lift, or Mastopexy, firms the breast by removing any extra skin and tightens the tissue to support their shape or to reshape them altogether. Women’s breasts can change for various reasons whether it is weight gain or loss, pregnancy, aging or heredity. A breast lift is used to rejuvenate the bosom and create a profile that is uplifted and youthful again. Please note that breast lift surgery cannot change the size of the breasts itself; just reshape them to look raised.
A Mommy Makeover is one of the most popular procedures in Mexico. The mommy makeover has many different parts, the most common is the tummy tuck. The tummy tuck tightens the abdominal area and removing all excess skin and fat. The mommy makeover also includes the breast lift, while perks up the breast to regain their elasticity. Mommy makeover patients can also opt for a complete breast augmentation, or implants to increase breast size. In some cases, vaginal rejuvenation is offered to boost the appearance after giving birth or having kids.
Tummy Tuck in Mexico
A Tummy Tuck, known as an Abdominoplasty, is a procedure that removes any excess skin or fat on the stomach. It can sometimes even restore any separated or weakened muscles leaving a smooth, firm look. It’s important to know that a tummy tuck is not a substitute weight loss and cannot correct stretch marks unless they are a part of the skin being removed (generally that below the belly button itself). The tummy tuck surgery can significantly help those who lost substantial weight, by making their stomachs look more appealing.
Body Contouring in Mexico
Body Contouring is often the final stage of a remarkable weight loss journey. The procedure improves the tone and shape of underlying tissue that supports the skin and the fat. After weight loss occurs, the skin’s elasticity is significantly reduced. As a result, individuals see sagging upper arms, flat breasts, apron-like abdominal area and sagging thighs, groin or even buttocks.
This procedure improves the shape and tone of various parts of the body and restores it to a healthy appearance that has smooth skin. It is not recommended someone chooses this surgical procedure if they are not done losing weight. This should be the final result of the process where the pressure is maintained only during and after recovery.
Panniculectomy in Mexico
The Panniculectomy is used also to remove excess fat mainly on the knees, hips, and back. This procedure can be performed on its own or in conjunction with the tummy tuck surgery. The primary objective of the panniculectomy is removing the overhanging apron of skin that can occur below the belly button. This extra skin usually is created from rapid weight loss and is normal in patients who underwent bariatric surgery.
The pannus (apron of skin) can cause many problems for individuals including hygiene problems, inability to feel comfortable, the increase in yeast infections and lower back pain. This procedure can not tighten the area, just remove the extra fat and skin there. This surgery should only occur if one has maintained their weight for at least a year and is dedicated to eating right and remaining active.
Thigh Lift in Mexico
A Thigh Lift procedure improves the look of the legs and frequently is administered with liposuctions or other lift procedures. A surgeon reshapes the thighs by removing any excess skin or fat that makes the skin look smoother and also better proportioned. If one is looking to remove excess fat, liposuction is a better choice. After weight loss surgery, those who lost substantial weight can often find it difficult to the excess skin on the thighs. If the skin’s elasticity is especially poor, a combination of both liposuctions and thigh lift procedures is recommended. This is an excellent surgical option for those whose body carries a lot of weight on thighs and legs.

Does the process require hospitalization? What anesthesia is used? How much time is needed for recovery? What kind of outcome can a patient expect? What are the risks? Lastly, are there any special considerations to make concerning the procedure for the long term?
