Excess Skin Removal Surgery


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.

Client Testimonials

"I can’t recommend Dani and Medi Makeovers enough, the service Dani provides her clients are the best in the market, and I did my research, and I was surprised by the value And care her company provides.
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."


"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.
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."


Typical Excess Skin Removal Surgery

Perhaps you feel like you’ve come so far with your weight loss goals, yet you’re faced with new challenges related to excessive loose and sagging skin that just won’t go away. Excess skin can cause ongoing physical issues like skin infections and general discomfort, which can interfere with your everyday activities, including exercise.


Patients often tell us that they wish to put their weight loss journey behind them once and for all so they can move on with their lives and embrace their new streamlined shape.

What are the different procedures?

  • Tummy Tuck – mini, full, extended

  • Liposuction – upper abdomen, back, thighs or other areas as needed
  • Brachioplasty or arm lift
  • Thigh lift
  • Upper Back Lift

What To Expect

Once you have submitted your surgery medical form and photos - our team will arrange a free assessment, and outline all the details you will need to know about having Surgery - Price, Length of Stay in Bangkok, Hotel, Transfers, and so much more.

The next steps are booking a surgery date which we will confirm for you - flights, and we book everything else from there, hotels - transfers - possible dental appointments, laser treatments, and so much more. You don't have to worry about a thing - your Medi Makeovers personal client manager will arrange everything. You will be fully informed of every step and be given a full surgery journey program - from start to finish, Medi Makeovers will make your journey as smooth as possible.

Once you arrive in Thailand, grab your bags, and you will be greeted by one of our coordinators who will take you to your driver. You will always arrive the day before your procedure, so you will go to your hotel - where you can relax and enjoy your luxurious surroundings! You will be picked up from your hotel the next day and head to the hospital to meet your surgeon. You will have your consultation with your surgeon.

If you have pre-existing health conditions, your surgeon will normally ask for you to arrive a day before your surgery date to have further testing done and set up your surgery accordingly to ensure your safety. We also ask for a range of tests (based on your medical form) that you will need to send to us prior to your surgery date, and your surgeon will confirm these for you. It is important for these tests to be done BEFORE you arrive in Bangkok, so if there are any concerns, you will be given information and directions to ensure you will be ready for surgery when you arrive. Once you have met with your surgeon and are happy to proceed, you will be taken to be prepared for your surgery.

After your surgery, you will spend the required number of nights in your private ward room in the hospital under 24 care. When your surgeon has given you the all-clear, you can then go back to your luxury hotel and relax! You will be given medications and aftercare instructions, as well as follow-up appointment times (where your nurse visits you in your hotel for checkups). If you wish to come back to the hospital at any other time, you may do so. In your final consultation, your surgeon will examine you to ensure you are safe to fly and provide you with a fit-to-fly certificate. Once your time is over in Thailand, we will take you back to the airport and fly home. All transfers are included - Airport, Hotel, Hospital

Frequently Asked Questions

Your surgeon will be able to answer this as this is very personalized. It will be all based on what you actually want to have done and your medical condition and also any medications etc that you may be on. In most cases, if you want up to 4 procedures, this can be done in one trip. However, if more, then you may need to make 2 trips to Bangkok, up to 6 months apart. But this will all be confirmed once the surgeon has your medical form and photos and can then do a personalized assessment for you.

Excess skin removal surgery can take up to 12 months to show full results, but usually, you will need a few months for recovery. The length of recovery will be based on the procedures you have. The larger the incisions, the longer the recovery for your body. Naturally, your body will react with swelling, so you must take care post-surgery and rest as much as your body needs. In many cases, you will need to allow time off work and discuss all issues with your surgeon.

You must wait at least 12 months post-Bariatric surgery. It is good to be happy with your goal weight before having skin surgery. If you gain weight after surgery, your skin that has been tightened may stretch, undoing improvements. Further, weight loss can also loosen and sag the newly tightened areas of skin.

These procedures should not be thought of as weight loss procedures. However, because they do remove excess skin and other tissue, including some subcutaneous fat, you will lose some weight. These procedures may remove as much as 10 kilos for someone who has a large amount of redundant skin after losing a large amount of weight.

The costs of these surgeries in Australia can run into the tens of thousands - but you can have these surgeries in beautiful Thailand with Medi Makeovers for at least half of that cost. You don't have to compromise on quality by coming to Thailand at all. Also, post-surgery recovery is better in our stunning 5-star hotels as you can rest and recover in style and not worry about cooking, housework, etc. You will actually recover quicker as you can rest more. You can bring a friend or family member with you or come on your own.

Patients may experience some discomfort after the procedures; however, medication will be prescribed to keep the pain manageable. You will feel more uncomfortable post-surgery than in pain. Sleeping must be in a raised position, resting on pillows and only on your back. This may cause you to have sleep issues, so you may be able to take sleeping tablets.

The potential risks or complications associated with the body lift may include bleeding, infection, scarring and delayed wound healing. Patients should be in good health, a non-smoker, and have no pre-existing medical issues so then the risks will be lower. Stopping alcohol at least one month prior to surgery will also reduce risks.

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 eight 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.
