Serving the Frisco, Plano, Allen, & McKinney, TX area, 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.
"Gifted Dr. Najera and his stellar team! - Having been inspired by the extensive and high quality online reviews of Dr. Najera's work, I decided to reach out to his team from my base in London, UK, and can honestly say that from the very outset, I have received nothing but the highest level of care and professionalism from the doctor and his staff.

"This is the place you need to go to. From the start with my pre-op with Jessica Benenate I felt at ease talking with her. They are all VERY informative and so friendly and personable. My surgeon, Dr. Najera, is one of the kindest people I have ever met. He is so professional and did an excellent job going above and beyond my expectations. I can't stress enough how important it is to have a board certified surgeon who knows what they are doing AND cares about their patient's final outcome. This is what you get with Dr. Najera. I am so lucky I chose the best place to get my surgery done."- L.R. / Google / Jan 17, 2019
"I couldn't be happier with my results from Dr. Najera! I was recommended to him by my mother who is the queen of research. And she was right about choosing him. The staff was always sweet and helpful. I'm sure I annoyed them with questions constantly, but they never made me feel anything but comfortable and cared about. Amber and Jessica were awesome. Dr. Najera always has a really positive attitude and is honest and clear about what to expect. He gave me exactly what I wanted and I am so thankful for him and his staff really listening to my wishes. Whenever it came to anything beauty on myself, I was never 100% pleased with the results. With Dr. Najera, I truly was. I would recommend him and go back in the future!"- K.M. / Google / Jan 11, 2019

"I can't say enough great things about Najera Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery. The facility is beautiful, and every member of the staff that I have encountered so far has been super friendly and helpful. If you are seeking some kind of cosmetic injectables, do yourself a favor and make an appointment with Linda asap! I tend to be a 'Nervous Nelly' and can't help but ask millions of questions, but she was patient, friendly, and knowledgeable. Above all else, your comfort and complete satisfaction is her priority!!!"- A.C. / Yelp / Dec 14, 2018
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 is performed in an accredited surgical center under general anesthesia. Depending on the surgical case, an overnight stay may be required. The recovery following this surgery can be a slow process due to the number of incisions that must be made to remove the skin deformities. Every attempt is made during surgery to minimize scarring as much as possible. After weight loss surgery typically takes 6-8 full months for the final results to appear.
After weight loss surgery can cost between $8,500-$11,500, or higher. This cost varies greatly depending on how many procedures are performed and if they are completed in one setting or multiple sessions.
