Losing a significant amount of weight is a wonderful achievement that can lead to huge improvements in your quality of life. When you go from obese to a healthy weight, you’ll not only look better, but you’ll also feel better both mentally and physically. For many people, Ozempic treatment can provide the necessary boost to achieve their weight loss goals. However, one of the few downsides to losing weight with Ozempic is that it may leave you with sagging excess skin. This creates an appearance often referred to as “Ozempic Face” or “Ozempic Body,” and it can greatly detract from your improved aesthetics after losing weight. To combat this common problem, Dr. Maura Reinblatt offers several surgical and non-surgical treatment options for rejuvenating your appearance after weight loss.
For patients dealing with large amounts of excess skin and severe skin laxity after losing weight with Ozempic, Dr. Reinblatt offers several surgical body sculpting procedures.
For many people, the most problematic area after massive weight loss is the lower body. In areas like the thighs, hips, buttocks, and waist, the symptoms of Ozempic Body can become very noticeable. A body lift, also known as a lower body lift or belt lipectomy, is a surgical procedure performed to lift, tighten, and firm loose, sagging skin around one or more areas of the lower body.
After losing large amounts of weight with Ozempic, a body lift can be extremely helpful in achieving a more proportionate body shape. The procedure will also allow your upper legs, buttocks, and lower abdomen to appear significantly more toned and youthful.
Another area where the effects of Ozempic Body can be prominent is the upper arms. Loose, drooping skin on your arms can hide your muscle definition and create an unwanted “batwing” appearance. An arm lift performed by Dr. Reinblatt can be the perfect solution to this frustrating problem. Also known as brachioplasty, an arm lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to create firmer, more toned upper arms by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the remaining skin and underlying tissue.
Excess, sagging skin on the back can be a common issue for both men and women after massive weight loss with semaglutide treatment. Because the skin and tissues of the back don’t usually have the necessary elasticity to conform to your new figure after weight loss, the result tends to be drooping skin or unsightly “rolls.” This can be especially problematic for women due to the presence of the bra line right in the middle of the upper back.
A back lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed primarily to re-contour the appearance of the back and combat Ozempic Body. During the procedure, excess skin and tissue are removed from the back, and the remaining skin is carefully tightened with sutures. This leaves the back looking firmer, tighter, and more defined.
While surgical procedures can be extremely effective for rejuvenation after weight loss, they aren’t the best choice for every individual. If you aren’t a good candidate for surgery or would simply prefer a less invasive procedure, Dr. Reinblatt does offer non-surgical treatment options to improve your appearance after losing weight.
Oftentimes, cases of Ozempic Face aren’t particularly severe. In situations where the skin laxity is subtler, surgery typically isn’t necessary to achieve effective rejuvenation. Dr. Reinblatt offers treatment with several injectable dermal fillers, which can help to plump and fill out your loose, sagging skin around the face and jawline. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane can add natural-looking volume to your skin to create a smoother, firmer, more youthful appearance.
Although the results of dermal filler treatment are temporary, the procedure is quick, painless, and much less expensive than cosmetic surgery. Dermal fillers can be an excellent way to treat minor to moderate cases of Ozempic Face.
If you’ve lost a significant amount of weight with semaglutide treatment or otherwise, you could be a good candidate for rejuvenation after weight loss. To be an ideal candidate for these procedures, you should meet the following requirements:
