Post-Massive Weight Loss Surgery
Show Off the New You with Help from Chicago’s Lawrence Iteld, MD
If you stretch out a medium-size sweater with an extra-large body, it’s not going to fit right anymore—even if you drop a significant number of pounds and try it on again after the transformation. The material simply can’t un-stretch itself and looks baggy. For patients who find themselves lighter after massive weight loss, Chicago’s Lawrence Iteld, MD, explains that—unfortunately—your skin can be just like a sweater. Even if your body is slimmer and sleeker after a successful surgery or lifestyle change, you can have pounds of flesh that sag from your arms, legs, belly, and elsewhere.

Cosmetic post-massive weight loss surgery may include a thigh lift, arm lift, Brazilian butt lift, tummy tuck, or breast lift. Any procedure that helps you to show off flatter, firmer contours instead of loose, flabby ones can be part of an overall body lift, ideal for women and men who achieved a much lower number on the scale via diet and exercise; gastric sleeve, lap band, or bypass surgery; or intragastric balloon. Dr. Iteld can also perform all of these procedures to give you freedom from a reliance on opioids during your recovery after.
