Losing a significant amount of weight is a major achievement. Some patients who have met their weight loss goals may have an excess of skin around the abdomen, arms, legs, breasts or face--that's because the skin may have lost its elasticity and isn't able to shrink back to its former size or shape.
MUSC Health's Plastic Surgery Center offers the region's largest variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures, including body contouring surgery designed specifically for patients who have achieved significant weight loss. Procedures that remove skin or fat, tighten and lift can be used to help your clothes fit better and make you feel more comfortable performing your favorite activities.
Each year we have a dedicated session during support group on plastic surgery. Please see our schedule for dates.
