Post Bariatric Weight Loss
At Modern Surgical Arts of Denver in Highlands Ranch, CO, we offer skin tightening and body contouring procedures that can eliminate excess skin post bariatric surgery. Our customized surgical treatment plans combine surgical techniques with Renuvion® skin tightening treatments and liposuction as needed to help patients improve their body contours, reach their aesthetic goals, and feel more confident in their appearance.
Post Bariatric Surgery Skin Tightening and Body Contouring
Bariatric surgery is a procedure that can help patients lose significant weight and maintain a healthier weight long-term. While patients experience dramatic weight loss after this procedure, they’re often left with aesthetic imperfections, namely loose skin, that negatively impact their self-image due to sudden and massive weight loss.
This procedure aims to change the body’s physiology, and after doing so, it takes approximately one year to adjust to its limited caloric and nutrient absorption abilities. Patients who want to tighten their skin and contour their bodies to reverse skin laxity after this procedure are encouraged to wait one year before undergoing cosmetic surgery so that the body can heal, relearn how to absorb calories and nutrients, and reach a stable body weight.
Eliminating Excess Skin After Weight Loss
After the body heals from this procedure and patients reach a healthy weight, loose skin and stubborn fat can prevent them from feeling confident in their appearance and reaching their goals. Dr. Dastoury designs customized treatment plans that can eliminate the stubborn fat resistant to a healthy diet and regular exercise routine. He performs skin tightening treatments and procedures targeting their specific areas of concern.
Dr. Dastoury designs procedures custom-tailored to each patient’s anatomy and cosmetic surgery goals. A treatment plan may include one or more of the following:
- Mastopexy (breast lift)
- Brachioplasty (arm lift)
- Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
- Thigh lift
- Renuvion® skin tightening treatments

What Is Renuvion®?
Renuvion® is an FDA-approved skin tightening treatment that naturally tightens loose skin with energy-based technology. It helps patients achieve smoother skin, can eliminate wrinkles, and treat skin laxity. It uses a combination of helium plasma energy and radiofrequency energy to address the root cause of skin laxity in the deeper layers.
It forces collagen fibers in the dermal layers to contract and also initiates a process called neocollagenesis, in which the body responds to the treatment and increases natural collagen and elastin production.
What To Expect
Patients can expect results within days to weeks of the initial treatment. Most patients can achieve their desired results from a single treatment. The treatment process takes approximately 60 minutes, but treatment times may vary depending on the size and number of areas we treat. Renuvion® requires little to no downtime and pairs well with our other skin-tightening procedures that can eliminate loose skin and promote a healthier and youthful-looking appearance.
Am I a Candidate for Renuvion®?
When Dr. Dastoury designs your surgical treatment plan, he will give you more information about Renuvion® and confirm if pairing it with one or more skin tightening and body contouring procedures will help you achieve your desired goals. Dr. Dastoury is a leading expert in skin tightening and will work with you to design a treatment plan that’s right for you.
Customizing Your Skin Tightening and Body Contouring Treatment
Breast Lift Surgery
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy is a customized skin-tightening procedure that lifts the breasts higher on the chest wall and can raise the nipples and areolas higher to improve the appearance of the breasts. Not only does this procedure restore a youthful-looking appearance to the breasts, but it eliminates any excess tissue causing sagging or drooping.
Arm Lift Surgery
Also known as brachioplasty, arm lift surgery is designed to eliminate excess skin and tissue from the arms to reduce sagging and improve the area’s aesthetics. It tightens the skin and contours the arms to improve arm definition.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Abdominoplasty is a procedure commonly called the tummy tuck that contours the abdomen by eliminating excess skin, tissue, and fat from the area while tightening the abdominal muscles to promote a tighter and contoured midsection. Patients with loose skin and stubborn fat in the abdominal area can benefit from this procedure.
Thigh Lift Surgery
Thigh lift surgery involves removing excess skin and tissue from the thigh area, typically the inner thigh, to contour the legs and buttocks and improve the shape and appearance of the area. Like all of our procedures, thigh lift surgery can also be combined with Renuvion® skin tightening and liposuction for optimal results.
Enhancing Results With Liposuction
Dr. Dastoury may also add liposuction to these procedures to ensure the best post-operative results. Liposuction is a procedure that gently removes excess fat deposits from one or more body areas. Specialized techniques gently suction fat cells from the treatment area to reduce fat volume and improve body contours.
These fat deposits that are removed are typically those resistant to diet and exercise, and when they’re eliminated via liposuction, the body will not regrow them. The results are intended to be permanent, and patients will experience significantly less fat volume in that area so long as they don’t gain weight after the procedure.
Enjoy Tighter, Healthier Skin
You can reach your goal weight and live free from the excess skin and stubborn fat affecting your confidence. We can design a unique treatment plan to target one or multiple body areas affected by the loose skin from extreme weight loss post bariatric surgery.
