Plastic Surgery After Weight Loss

Patients who have lost a significant amount of weight through diet, exercise, medication or bariatric surgery have unique needs. This might include removing excess skin and tissue around the face, neck, belly, arms, thighs and buttocks, as well as breast surgery to eliminate sagging.

  • We recommend waiting at least 12 months after bariatric surgery before having plastic surgery. This gives your body time to recover and arrive at a stable, healthy weight.
  • If you’ve lost weight through nonsurgical methods, we also recommend being at a stable weight for at least six months
  • Keep in mind that not all procedures can be done at once.

Our team provides comprehensive care before, during and after your surgery. We work closely with your primary care physician and other specialists as needed to ensure the best possible outcome.

Preparing for Plastic Surgery

No matter why you’re having plastic surgery, it’s essential to be in good health. You can do this through:

  • Good nutrition and hydration - this is especially important for patients who have lost large amounts of weight
  • Exercise
  • Not smoking or quitting if you do smoke

You can also prepare for your consultation by thinking about your expectations for surgery. What are you most concerned about? What kind of results are you looking for? This will help your surgeon understand your goals and develop a care plan that meets your needs.

About Chance Kaplan, MD

Chance Kaplan, MD, Plastic SurgeonI am a plastic surgeon with more than 30 years of experience. I’ve been recognized as one of the Top 3 cosmetic surgeons in Lancaster County by the Lancaster Newspapers’ Readers’ Choice Awards. I began my career as a U.S. Army Medical Service Corps officer. After completing medical school, a residency in general surgery and a fellowship in plastic surgery, I served as chief of plastic surgery at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in Texas. There, and later as an officer in the Army Reserve serving in multiple combat deployments, I provided cosmetic and reconstructive surgery to the men and women in our armed forces. 

Understanding a cosmetic, plastic or surgical procedure fully and how it can help is essential for patients to decide what is right for them. Your initial consultation with me is very important.
