You’ve probably tried several different diets and workout routines, and you may even have a “before” picture from a period of time when you wanted to actively document your progress. When your weight loss journey involves losing more than just a few vanity pounds, several months may pass before you’ve even made a dent in your goal. Even after five months of total dedication to your plan, the “after” picture you were hoping for might better be labeled “during” because your journey is still not complete.

Whether you have struggled to lose weight or you have excess skin as a result of weight you have already lost, Dr. Agullo has a procedure that can get you the “after” picture you are looking for. He has several weight loss surgery options available that can reduce fat, remove excess skin, and help you to complete your weight loss journey once and for all.

Fat Reduction Surgery

Liposuction is typically not a stand-alone treatment for weight loss. In fact, patients who experience the best results with liposuction are at or near their goal weight. However, liposuction can be performed along with other procedures in order to reduce inches and help patients experience a smoother body contour. Since liposuction alone does not address excess skin, Dr. Agullo often performs liposuction with tummy tuck surgery, arm lift, and other “lifting” procedures. If you need to lose a significant amount of fat and you do not have good skin elasticity, liposuction followed by (or in conjunction with) skin reduction surgery will be the best option for you.

Skin Reduction Surgery

If you have already achieved your goal weight through traditional methods or with the aid of bariatric surgery, you may be burdened with excess skin on various areas of your body. Dr. Agullo can perform one procedure at a time or several procedures at once that will remove excess skin and sculpt your body into the shape you have earned. A circumferential body lift, also called a lower body lift, is the most comprehensive body contouring procedure and will address excess skin in the thighs, abdomen, back, buttocks, and hips. Each of these areas can be addressed separately as well, depending on the patient’s desires, health history, and the areas that need the most correction.
