Which Cosmetic Procedures Will Be Included In My Body Contouring After Weight Loss Surgery?

Your Body Contouring After Weight Loss surgery will be custom tailored according to your desired aesthetic results. During your initial consultation with Dr. Avi Islur you will address your areas of concern. From there, Dr. Avi Islur will discuss all of your surgical options in detail and you can choose which procedures you are most interested in. Multiple cosmetic procedures can be performed in one surgery, however, there is a limit as to how many cosmetic procedures can be performed at the same time. If you are interested in having multiple cosmetic procedures performed during one surgery, you can address this in detail with Dr. Avi Islur during your initial consultation.

The most common cosmetic procedures for Body Contouring After Weight Loss include:

Panniculectomy Surgery

A panniculectomy can remove your unwanted, overhanging, loose excess skin that is located on your abdominal area. A panniculectomy differs from a tummy tuck because it does not include a change in the position of your belly button or pulling up of the pubic area.

The scar for a panniculectomy is similar to a standard tummy tuck, the incision lines are located at the junction of the pubic area and abdomen and extends laterally along the thigh and abdomen.

A panniculectomy can effectively eliminate rashes, ulcerations, moisture and hygiene issues but does not include cosmetic body contouring. This may be an option for you if you are considering correcting the issues mentioned above, but a panniculectomy is not the right fit if you are interested in further cosmetic body contouring.

A panniculectomy can be performed alone and may be covered by provincial health care plans.

Will I Save Money If I Get Tummy Tuck, Liposuction, and Breast Surgery Done At The Same Time?

Yes, you will save money if multiple procedures are performed at the same time because only one anesthetic will be required for your operation.

Only one anesthetic is required per surgery date so the cost savings is passed on directly to you.
