About This Surgery
Weight loss is a significant accomplishment that should be celebrated and shown off. However, sometimes after losing an extensive amount of weight, your skin can become saggy and loose throughout your body. Dr. Nana Mizuguchi, our board-certified plastic surgeon, wants to help you look and feel your best. He offers post weight loss procedures to help tighten your skin, contour your body, and remove any stubborn fat left. These surgeries can be done in stages or at one time depending on your health and cosmetic needs. We can offer breast enhancement procedures, tummy tucks, arm lifts, Brazilian butt lifts, liposuction, and more, which can all be decided on during your consultation at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville, KY.
Losing more than 100 pounds is an impressive accomplishment, but men and women will see their achievements better with after weight loss surgical contouring procedures. Ideal candidates:
- Will have medical approval from their weight loss surgery doctor
- Will be at a sustained weight for at least a year
- Will have lost close to 100 pounds or more
- Will be in good health
- Will be able to have general anesthesia for the surgery
- Do not smoke

"Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff are wonderful. In July of 2019 I had my consultation appointment. The moment my husband and I walked in, I knew I was in good hands. Kristy and Dr. Mizuguchi answered all of my questions and answered questions I hadn’t even thought of yet. Fast forward to October 2019. I had breast augmentation surgery. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. After breast feeding 3 little ones throughout the past 6 years, it was nice to have a small ‘mom makeo...ver’ to feel beautiful again. He even called later the night of surgery to check on me and see how things were going. I unfortunately had an allergic reaction to either the pain meds or antibiotic but him and his staff were on top of it and had it taken care of right away. Everything has been a 5 star from day one of calling their practice. I highly recommend Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff!"- C.K. / Facebook / Jan 04, 2020
"Dr. Mizuguchi and his entire staff are truly amazing. They all give off positive vibes & really care about the experiences they provide. I am almost 3 weeks post op (breast augmentation). They’ve made me feel at ease with decisions, asking questions, and the overall care they provide. I am beyond happy with my choice in Dr Mizuguchi, and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He most definitely exceeded my expectations, all while making the entire process so smooth! I honestly couldn’t be any happier with my results and feel so much better about myself!!!"- C.W. / Facebook / Dec 11, 2019
What to Expect
Considering the extensive amount of skin to be removed, this surgery is performed at a local hospital or an accredited ambulatory surgical center with overnight stay capabilities. Our plastic surgeon may also schedule the surgeries to occur 3 – 6 months apart to allow for healing, depending on your overall health and other medical conditions, or to curtail excessive blood loss and limit the risk of infection.
Once cleared by our medical team to perform regular physical activity, our after weight loss surgery patients report having more mobility and range of motion when doing basic everyday activities. With all of the extra skin eliminated, they also report feeling dramatically different in their clothes and exude a higher level of self-confidence. Recovery time for each patient is different and will depend on the nature and extent of the surgery performed, as well as the combination of surgeries. Our team does our best to educate you on the procedures and how to best care for your body post surgery.
