Massive Weight Loss – Before & After Images

Congratulations. You’ve worked hard to lose a lot of weight and have the fabulous new body to prove it.

Unfortunately, it may be hiding under excess skin that hasn’t shrunk to accommodate your slimmer new size.

As you can see in the before and after galleries below, all is not lost. Thanks to Dr Jeremy Hunt, surgery can help tighten your skin and leave you with a much-improved silhouette. This surgery may include a tummy tuck, lower body lift, upper arm lift, thigh lift and/or breast surgery. The result? A top to toe makeover befitting of your new shape.

A note from Dr Hunt
Of all plastic surgery procedures, correcting excess skin following massive weight loss requires the most care when choosing a surgeon. Because multiple procedures are often involved, you must take care to minimise any risk. I recommend seeking only surgeons with the acronyms MBBS FRACS after their name. These hard-earned letters ensure that you and your new body are in the very best hands.

Massive Weight Loss Before and After Images

Patient Example One

Surgery after massive weight loss often requires 2 or 3 procedures. A lower body lift, often with liposuction and breast surgery can be combined in the first procedure. The second procedure can be an upper body lift and the third procedure can consist of a thigh lift or upper arm lift.

The patient below was a 46 year old who had lost 35kg. She had a lower body lift with liposuction of the abdomen and a breast reduction in her first procedure. Her second procedure was a medial thigh lift. After images: 9 months post surgery.
