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.

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.
