What is After Weight Loss Surgery?
Men and women who accomplish major weight loss are to be commended, having overcome a big hurdle in life. While their new shape represents a proud accomplishment, oftentimes, they will be faced with new frustrations due to the hanging skin that remains on the body. Massive weight loss commonly leaves men and women with skin that cannot shrink to the new, slimmer figure. No matter where the hanging skin resides, surgical intervention is necessary to rid the issue. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez offers after weight loss surgery at her Cedar Park, TX facility. This usually is a life-changing procedure at Beleza Surgery and also serves as the last step in a patient's personal transformation.
"This establishment is very clean and the staff are so friendly. I did a lip filler with Ashley & I definitely recommend her. She goes step by step & goes as far as to explain how she will complete the procedure in addition to how you will feel a few days later & answering her emails when you have concerns lmao my lips look so natural and plump. I definitely recommend her!"- M.B. / Google / Sep 21, 2021
"overdue five star review for Vanessa and the friendly staff. Incredibly satisfied with my procedure done by the talented Vanessa Bennington. I loved how informative she was during my entire visit but still made me feel completely comfortable to ask any questions or concerns that I had. I left feeling so beautiful and happy!!! We did some botox and two syringes (one voluma, one juvederm) to help enhance my cheeks, lips and chin. It’s been nearly 7 months and I’m still happy with my results. I may be due for my second treatment of botox but that’s expected. I wouldn’t even waste anymore time, look no further. Highly recommend her!!!"- C.L. / Yelp / Sep 03, 2021

What Can I Expect from My After Weight Loss Surgery?
Plastic surgery to remove loose skin is generally considered a major treatment. It is performed using general anesthesia and on average, takes between 3 – 7 hours, depending on how many procedures are combined. In most cases, a hospital stay is necessary. A form of liposuction is often used during the procedure to remove fat tissue, followed by skin removal. Plastic surgery of this nature does make larger incisions than less invasive cosmetic procedures so varying degrees of scars will likely be associated with this treatment, but we do our best to create the incisions as inconspicuous as possible. Dr. Hix-Hernandez or a member of her team will give you specific scar treatment instructions for a healthy outcome. Small tubes may be implanted near the incision sites to help minimize swelling and drainage, and compression garments should be worn to assist with swelling. On average, it takes about 2 – 4 weeks until you will feel good enough to resume low-impact activities, but considering the level of invasiveness, it could take longer. Dr. Hix-Hernandez finds that most of her patients are healed after 4 – 6 months. This surgery can be a life-changer for patients with noticeable outcomes that are immediate.
