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

"Decided on 485 cc's under the muscle. I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! - I'm 30 years old and I have two kids, I've wanted implants for a long time, after I breastfed my youngest who is now 5 years old, I became very deflated and hated my chest, I was a 36D. I met my surgeon Dr. Mitzuguchi about a month ago and had a virtual consultation where we decided I'd need a lift and I showed him my wish pictures, at my pre op appointment I was able to go in and try on different sizes of implants and we decided on 485 cc's under the muscle, I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! I'm very happy with my results so far, and dr. Mitzuguchi and his staff are amazing, very pleasant to work with and very tentative to their patients needs. I'm pretty sore today but it's nothing too bad, I'm on muscle relaxers and pain killers, and I have my first post op visit on Monday!!!"- A. / RealSelf / Jun 12, 2020

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.
