Ideal Weight Loss for Plastic Surgery

By News No Comments

A patient’s journey to their new healthy weight can take months to complete, and not every solution will work for every individual. Therefore, before undergoing plastic surgery after extreme weight loss, it is important to receive professional advice from your doctor.

Before having plastic surgery after major weight loss, it is vital to be at a healthy body weight prior to making the desired changes to look as healthy as you feel.

The goals of weight loss before plastic surgery are to reach a plateau weight, which means to be at a stable and healthy weight for six months, as well as being close to a normal body mass index (BMI).  At this point, it is important to receive advice from your GP to be medically cleared as being fit enough to undergo surgery. It is vital that you have reduced the risk of wound healing complications by maintaining good nutritional levels and ceasing smoking.

During a weight loss journey, some patients may lose weight slower than expected and it may be hard to know whether they have reached an ideal weight for plastic surgery. If their body image has not caught up with their weight loss, patients will still feel heavier than they actually are. It can be helpful seeing a plastic surgeon to work out if they are close to or at a good weight to have plastic surgery for loose skin.

At Southern Aesthetic, our plastic surgeons, Dr Amira Sanki and Dr Ilias Kotronakis, support weight loss patients to complete the final stage of their journey by helping them look as healthy as they feel. Our surgeons will undergo an initial consultation with you and listen to your concerns and goals, followed by an examination of your body and face, which is completed with great sensitivity and care as we are aware that many patients feel self-conscious after weight loss. Our surgeons will then discuss the best course of action uniquely suited for the patient to address their concerns.

Some women feel more comfortable and secure with having a female plastic surgery team.
