Bariatric weight loss surgery can be the tool that is needed to lose a massive amount of weight. Not only can bariatric patients lose a hundred or more pounds, they can lose the weight quickly if they follow the program. This is a tremendous achievement and a major step to better health and an improved appearance. However, many patients of bariatric surgery may be left with excess skin and tissue after their weight loss. If you have lost a massive amount of weight and are interested in body lift post bariatric surgery, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery in Tysons Corner, VA.

Bariatric surgery is a cosmetic body procedure that can help patients lose a hundred or more pounds quickly by reducing the size of the stomach. While the fat may burn away with diet and exercise, the skin and tissue that encompass the fat lost does not go away. Many bariatric weight loss patients are left with flaps of excess skin and tissue after they achieve their weight loss goals. The abdomen, breasts, arms, thighs, buttocks and pubic region can be left with sagging, excess skin. Not only is this skin unattractive, but it can also be uncomfortable.

Body Lift Surgeries After Medical Weight Loss

Each patient may have different issues with excess skin after medical weight loss. The amount of skin depends on a variety of factors, including genetics, age and body shape. For many, the midsection is the biggest problem. Skin flaps can form around the stomach, sides and backside. Others may have excess skin on the upper thighs and arms. Both men and women can have drooping skin and tissue around the breasts. Body lift surgeries remove the excess skin and tissue, as well as tighten and reshape the body. These surgeries include:

  • Truncal body lift around the midsection
  • Pubic lift
  • Thigh lift
  • Arm lift
  • Breast lift

If you have lost a significant amount of weight with bariatric surgery, congratulations! When you are ready to take the next step and remove the leftover skin with a body lift surgery, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery. We can schedule a private consultation with Dr. Maia to discuss the various lift surgeries available at our clinic in the Washington, DC, area.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
