Post Significant Weight Loss for Men

Congratulations, you’ve completed the difficult work and lost a significant amount of weight! Your dramatic weight loss has not only improved your health but also your overall appearance. You look good and feel great!

Why Have Body Contouring Surgery?

As a result of your weight loss, you have a new problem — excess, sagging skin. Excess skin is an unfortunate by-product of extreme weight loss, but the good news is body contouring surgery can improve the way you look. Body contouring surgery removes excess fat and sagging skin to give the body a more natural, toned appearance.

If you are on the journey to a “new you” through weight loss, the team of professionals at Belcara Health can help you achieve your goal. Take the first step and schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our surgeons…you deserve it.

About Body Contouring Procedures

While every patient is different in terms of problem spots, surgery is most often performed on the following areas: Upper ArmsChestAbdomenLower BackButtocks, Thighs, and Face.

Upper Arms

The upper arm from the axilla to the elbow is particularly vulnerable to sagging skin after weight loss. Arm lift surgery (brachioplasty) reshapes the under portion of the arm. This surgery is often performed with underarm surgery (axilloplasty) to remove the excess skin and fatty tissue that may hang. The result of upper arm surgery is a more toned and proportionate appearance.

Gynecomastia Correction

Gynecomastia is characterized by excess breast tissue and/or saggy skin. Humiliation and insecurity are some of the emotions that experienced by boys and men with enlarged breasts. Liposuction is an excellent means of correction gynecomastia. However, sometimes in severe cases, surgery is performed to remove excess skin. Learn more about Male Breast Reduction. 

Abdomen, Lower Back, and Buttocks

The most comprehensive body lift surgery is the belt lipectomy or body lift (circumferential torsoplasty). Addressing the mid-section, surgeons elevate and tighten deep tissue and remove the excess skin and fat around the torso resulting in a re-shaping of the abdomen, hips, back, buttocks and outer thighs. Not everyone will require a full circumferential torsoplasty and may be a candidate for a less extensive standard or extended abdominoplasty. Learn more about Body Contouring for Men.


The upper thigh is another problem spot for sagging skin after weight loss. To improve the contours of this area, surgeons may perform a thigh lift (thighplasty) on the area above the knee to the groin. If excess fat is a problem in this area, liposuction can be performed prior to the thigh lift surgery.


The effect of significant weight loss is most noticeable on the face in patients with sagging neck and jowls, and sunken cheeks. Facial Contouring is an effective way to tighten the loose skin, particularly in the neck area. Injecting fat into the cheeks using fat transfer, can add tissue volume. Patients often have both procedures, which result in a younger, firmer appearance. Learn more about Facial Contouring.

Only then are we able to provide an accurate price quote, which will include:

  • All visits before and after the procedure
  • Operating Room time and supplies
