North Dallas-based (Frisco, Plano, Allen, Mckinney) plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Najera, is a body contouring specialist and offers tailored cosmetic procedures for weight loss patients. Individuals who lose a large amount of weight are usually thrilled with their achievements, but disappointed because they are often left with loose and hanging skin. After weight loss surgery can help these patients complete their transformation. Using a combination of skin removal, skin tightening and liposuction techniques, the upper and lower body can be transformed and tightened so that hanging skin, excess wrinkles, and other skin deformities can be removed. It is especially common for patients who have lost around 100 pounds or more, whether it is from natural or bariatric weight loss.
"Dr. Najera hands down is the BEST doctor. I had a complete mommy make over and Dr. Najera and his staff especially his coordinator Amber have been nothing but EXCELLENT. Office staff is pleasant and professional. Dr. Najera has ALWAYS been about my happiness and well being. He is very professional and explained everything to me and answered EVERY question I ever had. I would recommend him to EVERYONE. From beginning to the end Dr. Najera and his staff have taken GREAT care of me!!!!"- T.S. / Google / Oct 30, 2015
"Breast Cancer/ Breast Reconstruction - I was referred by my breast surgeon to see Dr. Najera for the reconstruction. When I visited the office for the first time I immediately felt comfortable. Originally I was referred to another plastic surgeon and did not feel comfortable in that office. Thankfully I ended up with Dr. Najera. His staff are very courteous and professional. Needing a bilateral mastectomy was scary but they made me feel better about the whole procedure. Dr. Najera was very professional and explained everything clearly. He loves what he does and his work shows. I would absolutely refer Dr. Najera to anyone and everyone. I am very pleased with the results of my reconstruction. Thank you!"- P. / RealSelf / Jan 04, 2017

"34, 2 C-sections and Lots of Damage from Big Ol' Babies - Frisco, TX - It has only been around 6 weeks since my tt, but I cannot say enough good things about not only Dr. Najera, but his amazing office staff. From my very first visit, I felt like everyone was genuinely interested in helping me feel better, physically and self-esteem wise. Any time I had a question, be it by e-mail or phone message, I received a response quickly, and never felt like I was silly for asking. They really want to make sure you are informed for your recovery. So far everything has healed perfectly, and while I am still swollen (totally to be expected at this stage) I could not be happier with my results. I feel so much more confident and cannot wait to be able to do all of the things with my kids that my diastasis was keeping me from before. If you are considering getting a tt or mommy makeover at all, it is totally worth it, and Dr. Najera is a wonderful choice for a surgeon. I would totally do it again."- L. / RealSelf / Aug 18, 2016
During the initial consultation, Dr. Najera will sit with the patient and discuss the areas of primary concern. For most patients, loose skin tends to be a problem under the arms, around the abdomen, under the buttock, and surrounding the thigh area. Many women will choose to have a tummy tuck and breast lift, as these are both common areas were sag tends to take place. A customized treatment plan will be provided, which may combine various procedures that are spaced out over a specified period of time.
There are numerous conditions that can result following a significant weight loss. Surgery can help correct the following cosmetic concerns:
- Sagging, deflated breasts
- Loose and sagging skin on the abdomen
- Pockets of fat and hanging skin on the hips and flanks
- Wrinkles and sagging skin under the buttocks
- Loose and saggy skin on the inner and outer thigh and near the knees
- Hanging skin on the underside of the arm, commonly referred to as “bat wings”
It is common for weight loss patients to combine surgeries so that both the upper and lower portion of the body can be addressed. The goal is to reduce the amount of loose skin that hangs on the body and to lift the body part, so it appears tighter. Common surgical groupings include:
- Upper body (Liposuction, breast lift, tummy tuck, arm lift)
- Lower body (Liposuction, butt lift, thigh lift, lower body lift)
After weight loss surgery can cost between $10,000-$15,000, or higher. This cost varies greatly depending on how many procedures are performed and if they are completed in one setting or multiple sessions.
