Losing a significant amount of weight and keeping the pounds away is a major accomplishment. Your rewards are a healthier body, increased energy, and improved lifestyle.

Dr. Braden Stridde performs post weight loss plastic surgery that begins with a body lift to help Seattle and Bellevue patients achieve the slimmer, more attractive body they envison for themselves.

Your Surgical Options After Weight Loss
Once you have succeeded in losing a significant amount of weight it is not unusual to have large amounts of excess skin, which may sag and hang loose on the frame of your slimmer body. To remove this skin, Dr. Stridde can perform several plastic surgery procedures. After significant weight loss, our patients from Bellevue and Seattle usually need a body lift. This procedure can be very helpful for people who have undergone gastric bypass, or other types of bariatric surgery, by reducing areas of excess skin in the abdomen, lateral thighs, and buttocks.
Often, these are not the only areas where loose, hanging skin develops. Depending on your needs and aesthetic goals, Dr. Stridde also can remove surplus skin from the inner thighs, arms, and even the face. A breast lift with or without breast augmentation can restore your breast contour while providing a more full and uplifted appearance.
Devoted to providing personal care in a comfortable setting, Braden Stridde, M.D., is a board-certified plastic surgeon who looks forward to meeting you.Meet
