As more people are achieving significant weight loss through bariatric surgery and rigorous exercise, the demand in the Philadelphia area for body contouring surgery has increased.
Surgical procedures have been designed to tighten the loose, excess tissues of the body that have become a problem after weight loss. Dr. Genter provides a full array of body contouring procedures, including liposuction, to remove excess skin and fat from particular areas of the body. The procedures for body contouring in Bucks County provide immediate and long-lasting results to reshape and transform your body.
The most common procedures are as follows:
- Abdominoplasty (the tummy tuck) tightens the skin and tissue that protrudes from the midsection tummy.
- Body Lift Surgery is a procedure that targets loose, excess tissue in the inner thighs, outer thighs and buttocks.
- Thigh Lift Surgery will eradicate excess tissue on the inner and outer thighs.
- Arm Lift (brachioplasty) removes excess skin and tissue from the upper arms.
Body Contouring After Major Weight Loss: Who Can Benefit?
The best candidates for these surgeries are those who have lost a massive amount of weight and are now maintaining a stable weight and healthy lifestyle. People who have undergone bariatric surgery with the lap band, realize band or gastric-bypass are generally considered good candidates for a body lift in Philadelphia. Others who have achieved weight loss through diet and exercise can benefit as well.
Contact Dr. Genter to see if you are the right candidate for body contouring procedures. Generally, adults that do not have medical conditions impairing the healing process, and those who have maintained a stable weight loss for at least a year are qualified candidates for the procedure.
Candidates and patients must have realistic expectations through the procedure. Successful procedures performed by Dr. Genter will improve your shape and self-esteem, but your body will not be restored to what it was before the gain in weight. People choose the body lift to put the “finishing touch” on their hard-earned weight loss efforts.

After Body Contouring: What to Expect
Because these procedures are rather extensive, the recovery will often require more time than other cosmetic surgery procedures. In many cases, the surgeries are spread out over time to achieve a gradual but effective improvement.
The improvements will be recognizable immediately with your slimmer shape. You will be more comfortable in your skin, though treated areas will be sore and swollen for up to two weeks. We advise our patients in Bucks County to wear compression garments in order to minimize swelling.
During a consultation with Dr. Genter, your personal concerns can be addressed and a plan can be formulated to put that finishing touch on your weight loss efforts. Contact our plastic surgery office in Jenkintown to learn more about body lift surgery in Philadelphia.
