Introduction to

After Weight Loss Surgery

If you have been overweight but have successfully dropped your “L-B’s” through exercise, diet, or even through surgery, you may notice that you have some “excess” skin that just hangs off of you. As your body changes to accommodate your growing size, your skin stretches and conforms to its new proportions, which is a great way to keep your skin from “strangling” you, but not so great when it comes to the aftermath of the excess fat removal. Dr. Ahmad Ahmadi offers After Weight Loss Surgery to his Houston patients who wish to take back their bodies now that they can take back their lives. To help you learn more about this treatment, we have included some information about it below.

What is After Weight Loss Surgery?

After Weight Loss Surgery is usually required after a patient has lost an extreme amount of weight. Excess skin removal surgeries are unique for every patient, which is why Dr. Ahmadi utilizes combinations of procedures and his knowledge to help you achieve the best results. It’s always a good idea to wait to get this surgery until your body has reached a stable weight to maximize the results, which is typically about six months after your target weight goal has been achieved. Please keep in mind that some patients may need a little longer time to reach their best weight class.

Each surgery will vary in length and process, based on the skin and tissue being removed and the number of procedures being performed. Here are some of the more common treatments that we offer:
