Massive Weight Loss

  • Skin that is stretched due to obesity can become severely loose and hanging after massive weight loss (MWL).
  • Body contouring for MWL patients involves multiple operations to remove the excess skin safely, and incredible physical transformations are achievable.

       HOW IT’S DONE

      • Dr. Rad places incisions in order to optimize body contour, symmetry and hiding scars.
      • Skin and fat are lifted away from the underlying muscle layer and the excess is removed in a ‘tailoring’ method.
      • Laser Scar Therapy also helps to fade scars quickly and prevent thickening.
      SAFETY
      • For healthy patients, combining procedures is safe in Dr. Rad’s hands.
      • Several stages are usually needed to complete comprehensive body contouring safely:
        • Stage 1: Belt Lipectomy + Arm Lift
        • Stage 2: Chest Lift [men] or Breast Lift/Augmentation [women] + Back Lift
        • Stage 3: Face Lift + Thigh Lift
      • Dr. Rad works with a board certified anesthesiologist and performs surgery in the top hospitals in the Washington DC and northern Virginia area.

        WHAT TO EXPECT

        • Each stage takes 6 hours to perform and requires a hospital stay of 1-2 days.
        • Temporary moderate discomfort is common and is easily controlled with pain medications.
        • Recovery lasts about 3 to 4 weeks.
