Post-Bariatric Plastic Surgery

You've received bariatric surgery to lead a healthy life, but you're left with sagging skin that reminds you of your older figure. Now what?

Post-bariatric plastic surgery can recontour any areas of your body that you wish to tighten and tone to match your new figure.

MyBestBodyEver! in Tijuana, Mexico, provides affordable surgery in a state-of-the-art hospital that meets U.S. safety standards.

Understanding the Problem

If you have recently lost a large amount of weight through bariatric surgery, you may be dismayed to find that your body does not accurately reflect your progress. This is completely normal, since at a higher weight, your skin was stretched and lost much of its elasticity. With the fat cells gone, this skin tissue remains, hanging loosely on your frame.

Fortunately, body contouring after weight loss can remove and tighten this excess skin and reveal your new figure.

"When they lose weight, patients still see themselves as heavy patients because they have to wear big clothes. Even if the challenge is big, I want to help patients achieve a much better body contour." Dr. Rodolfo Castillo

Our Plastic Surgery Options

Bariatric patients are happy to leave their obesity behind, but sagging breasts and excess skin on the abdomen, arms, back, buttocks, and thighs can obscure your weight loss results. Our Tijuana plastic surgery office offers a variety of body lift procedures to help address your concerns:

Arm Lift

When there is excess skin in the arm area, an incision can be made from the armpit to the elbow to reduce sagging. An extended arm lift also addresses sagging from the armpit to the bra line.

Breast Lift

If your breasts have become saggy and flat after weight loss, we have a range of procedures that can help. Depending on your aesthetic goals, we may recommend a traditional breast lift, a breast lift combined with breast augmentation, or an extended breast lift, which involves the removal of excess skin at the bra line.

Posterior Upper Body Lift

After significant weight loss, the skin in the upper back often descends, leaving a protruding roll of skin in the upper back area. This can be eliminated with a body lift procedure on the upper back. Often, the incision our plastic surgeon makes can be extended to the breast crease, allowing him to perform a breast lift at the same time.

Belt Lipectomy

A belt lipectomy can remove excess skin from the abdomen, waist, and lower back, and lift the butt at the same time. This procedure can be performed in combination with a tummy tuck or butt lift.

Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and repairs weakened muscles. We can perform a 360-degree extended abdominoplasty to target fat and loose skin in your back, hips, and love handles. A popular procedure performed after dramatic weight loss, reverse abdominoplasty aims to reduce excess skin of the upper abdomen.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift is best for removing excess skin, not fat, in the internal part of the thigh. Our plastic surgeon can perform a traditional or extended thigh lift to recontour your legs to your preferences.

Ready to Transform Your Life? It All Starts With a Body Contouring Consultation

The body contouring procedure is completely customized to meet your needs, and a number of aesthetic procedures may be combined to achieve optimal results. Because no two body contouring procedures are the same, a thorough consultation is the key to success. Dr. Castillo will examine your overall health and discuss your goals. The body contouring process can involve several surgical procedures, so Dr. Castillo will perform them in stages to ensure your safety.

To obtain the best result possible, there are three basic rules that patients must follow before undergoing body contouring after massive weight loss:

  1. At least a year must have passed since your bariatric procedure.
  2. You must have maintained a consistent weight for the previous three to six months.
  3. You must have a body mass index under 30.

Body contouring procedures can help you achieve significant changes in your appearance, and following these rules helps our Tijuana team provide you with the best possible results.

Dr. Castillo and his staff are amazing. First time getting plastic surgery out of the country. I was nervous and scared. As soon as I walked into his office they made me feel I can trust them. I'm never going to forget Dr. Castillo's big smile. We went over what I wanted, he took time to explain everything and answer all my questions. He is very professional and respectful. He performed a breast lift. I am really happy with my results and with my experience. I definitely recommend to go with Dr. Castillo.
