What is Excess Skin Removal Surgery
Excess Skin Removal Surgery is a general term to encompass various plastic surgery procedures to remove excess skin.
Surgery can reshape your body; therefore, you may need body contouring after a significant weight loss (typically 40 kilos or more). Skin Removal Surgery is needed to remove sagging skin and fat and repair muscle.
With many surgeries or with rapid weight loss, you may experience:
- Excess sagging and stretched skin
- Fat loss
- Poor skin elasticity
This is why Excess Skin Removal Surgery might be a good option for you.
- If you have experienced dramatic weight loss from bariatric surgery or diet and exercise.
- If you have sagging skin in multiple areas, including the face and neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, back and thighs.
- If your weight has stabilized following bariatric surgery or diet and exercise. This may be 18 months or more after your weight loss.
Gets rid of loose skin so you can fit into your clothes better.
Gets rid of overhanging skin that might be causing painful chafing, rashes and infections.
Improves your self-esteem
Surgery results may not meet your expectations.
You will have permanent scarring (though your surgeon will try to hide scars in body creases and unobtrusive areas).
Your surgery results may be affected by weight gain, aging and lifestyle choices.
There may come a time after dramatic weight loss when your weight is stable, but you are distressed by sagging and overhanging skin. If you are considering plastic surgery to improve your body contour, these characteristics make you a good candidate:
Your weight has been stable for at least six months with no further weight loss expected. For optimal results, body contouring should not be done for approximately two years after the start of any dramatic weight-loss program. This time allows your skin to shrink as much as possible and your nutrition to be stabilized and optimized, factors that will aid in your recovery.
You are in overall good health without chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease. People in poor health are not good candidates for body-contouring procedures. Get clearance for plastic surgery from your primary care physician or from doctors treating you for medical conditions.
You have a healthy diet; problems such as protein deficiencies can interfere with healing.
You do not smoke; smoking slows down the healing process and increases the risk of serious complications during and after surgery. If you smoke, you must quit at least six weeks before surgery.
You have mental stamina; surgical contouring procedures require patience and endurance.
You have realistic expectations; surgery will lead to marked improvements in your shape, but it is impossible to restore the skin or body to what it would have been without the weight gain or to what it was in your teens or twenties. Even after body-contouring surgery, skin continues to sag over time as part of normal aging.

Dr. Teerapat was an exceptional surgeon. I am delighted with my results. The healing process and recovery were quick, with no pain (yes, discomfort) and minimal scarring because of Dr. Teerapat’s fine work, the strict care protocols, and the care at the hospital was equivalent to any 5-star hotel.
I can confidently say you would not be disappointed if you choose to enjoy the services Dani and Medi Makeovers provides - don’t put it off - do it now. Life is short so be the best version of yourself you can be. ”
“I absolutely loved my experience with Medi Makeovers. My consultant (who organized everything and was there to answer any questions or concerns I may have had), the hospital staff, my amazing hotel back home, and everything in between were amazing. I didn't have to worry about a thing - everything was done for me, and Bangkok was so beautiful. A big thank you to Dr. Teerapat I am absolutely thrilled with my results. I would definitely recommend Medi Makeovers.”Erin
“I was very hesitant to go overseas for surgery - all my family and friends said I was stupid, so I secretly made inquiries and booked and then told everyone. I am so glad I chose Medi Makeovers as they were so professional, and my time in Bangkok was amazing. DR Teerapat was extremely thorough, explained everything, and spoke English well.Olivia
My scars are amazing, only 3 weeks post-surgery. I am still a little swollen, but I am very happy. I followed all the doc's rules and rested well but managed to do some amazing shopping but not overdo things.
I traveled alone and stayed at the Grande Centre Point Terminal 21, and this hotel is so stunning and extremely valuable for money. So now everyone is saying that they will go, and I was the guinea pig!!! I saved more than 50% of the price I was quoted at home. I highly recommend Medi Makeovers and will come back for more!! I want to bring my husband back for dental.”
