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.
"I've been on my mommy makeover journey for quite some time now. But I am over joyed to have finally found the perfect doctor and staff. The Beleza Medspa/Surgery staff and Dr.Hernandez are very welcoming and informative.They are not just after your money they actually care about you and what’s best for you! The way they walked me through every process and answered all the questions I had(and I had a lot of them). I recently had my surgery this past Monday, and I cannot wait to see my final results. Thank you to everyone at the Beleza Medspa/Surgery for making this such a smooth process for me."- S.S. / Google / Apr 27, 2021

"My experience here was excellent. I did my research before deciding where to go for my Botox and filler and ended up choosing Beleza because of their extensively documented processes on their website as well as their very professional social media presence and high ratings on Yelp. They really did not disappoint. Booking ProcessThey were super easy to get ahold of and worked with me and my packed schedule to get me an appointment. It had to be rescheduled on my behalf once and then I ended up calling again because my work schedule allowed for my original appointment time again and they were so understanding on the phone and let me take my original date/time.OfficeThe office is well maintained and very clean and I was greeted warmly right away by Elena, after I filled out my paperwork I was greeted by Nancy. Treatment Nancy took me back and was very thorough during our consult. I am new to Botox/fillers and she has been in esthetics for 24 years so she had a ton of knowledge but what was even better was that she was that she responded to all my questions with care and kindness. I got filler in my cheeks and a bit in my undereye trough, Botox in my 11’s and then a little Botox around the mouth. She explained every step of the way and made me feel very at ease even though I’m not a big fan of needles. Overall my experience here was amazing and I will continue to return for more services with their lovely and knowledgable staff!"- S.M. / Yelp / Jan 22, 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.
