BODY CONTOURING AFTER WEIGHT LOSS
Congratulations on losing a significant amount of weight. That is an amazing achievement that you should be proud of. Unfortunately for many in your situation, some men and women who have lost massive amounts of weight are left with fitter, healthier bodies draped with loose, excessive saggy skin. Dr. Gerstle can help you sculpt the outside of your body to make it match the inner, stronger, fitter you.

Lifting and sculpting areas unaffected by exercise
First, you will sit down together to discuss your medical and surgical history, your physical exam, and your cosmetic goals. Being overweight can cause many medical problems, and it is important for Dr. Gerstle to be aware of what medical issues you had before you lost weight, and if any medical problems remain. As every individual’s weight loss journey is unique, taking the final steps to achieve your goals will be unique as well. Talking openly about your goals will help you both tailor your surgical plan to meet your needs.
In some situations, simple liposuction might be all you need. Yet, in most cases, a combination of several different procedures may be required. For your safety, Dr. Gerstle may recommend performing the surgeries in stages to allow your body to heal in between operations.
Please refer to the individual pages for each procedure to get a general idea of what to expect with each procedure and their associated recovery periods. Talking to Dr. Gerstle directly about your personalized surgical plan and recovery will give you a better understanding of what you specifically can expect after your procedures are complete.

So many people feel self-conscious about their bodies after successfully losing weight, or after proudly giving birth to beautiful children. Some people are just suffering from the natural effects of time and gravity. One of the things I enjoy most about my job is talking to people about what would make them feel better about their bodies, and then helping them achieve their goals.
