Post Bariatric Surgery in Beverly Hills
Dr. Andre Aboolian & The Biggest Loser
Dr. Aboolian has worked with several of the contestants of The Biggest Loser following their weight loss journeys to eliminate excess skin through surgery and help them regain their self-confidence.
Erik Chopin, from the NBC show “The Biggest Loser” was a surgical patient of Dr. Aboolian after his weight dropped from 400 lbs. to 193 lbs.
Biggest Loser contestants Erik Chopin (winner of Season 3) and Jim Germanokos (season 4) both flew from New York City to see Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Aboolian for their body lift procedures.
Why You Should Choose Dr. Aboolian for Body Contouring
Known by his colleagues as “the body expert,” Dr. Aboolian is nationally recognized for body contouring plastic surgery.
He has been chosen by the ABC’s “Extreme Makeover” television show and many of the winners and participants of NBC’s “Biggest Loser” for their plastic surgery procedures.
Dr. Aboolian was recommended to Erik by his trainer to surgically remove the excess skin left from his dramatic weight loss.
After meeting with numerous surgeons in the New York area where he lives, Erik chose to come to Los Angeles for the procedure because he was so impressed with Dr. Aboolian and the results of similar surgeries he has performed.
How to Proceed
Contact us in Beverly Hills for a body contouring consultation if you are close to your ideal weight or expect to lose a significant amount of weight through bariatric surgery, diet, or exercise. During your visit, you can learn more about the post-bariatric surgical plan developed for each individual. You can also discuss the specific nature of your case with Dr. Aboolian, one of the most distinguished and qualified plastic surgeons in California.
Cosmetic Surgery Following Massive Weight Loss
After bariatric surgery or significant weight loss, excess skin and tissue can become a problem in multiple body areas. This is because the skin, while elastic, often cannot fully retract after massive weight loss. Loose skin may reside on the hips, thighs, abdomen, arms, chest, and elsewhere.
Surgical procedures in post-bariatric body contouring can correct these problems so that you can appreciate the benefits of your weight reduction. Your body will be smoother, your skin flaps and folds will disappear, and you can feel more confident about your appearance.
What Body Contouring Can Achieve
Several different body contouring procedures can be combined to provide a comprehensive solution to excess skin after massive weight loss. In each of these surgeries, the excess skin is lifted or removed to exhibit a smoother, tighter contour. Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Aboolian can guide you through the process, helping you determine which procedures are right for you.
A tummy tuck removes excess skin from the abdomen, correcting a protruding midsection and stretched abdominal muscles that can occur after weight fluctuations. These include pregnancy and massive weight loss.
Such a procedure may be covered by some health insurance policies if medically indicated; such as when medical treatment has failed to correct hygiene issues, recurrent infections, and bleeding.
A body lift, or belt lipectomy, corrects excess skin around the hips and midsection. The surgery can be done in a single operation, or it can be done in separate stages. Skin folds in this part of the body are often the most apparent after massive weight loss.
An arm lift removes excess tissue that hangs below your upper arms. An incision is made traveling from the underarm toward the elbow.
Dr. Aboolian uses liposuction and skin removal techniques to improve the contour of the arms.
Thighplasty corrects excess tissue that has collected around the medial thighs. An incision is made in the natural skin creases, and excess skin is lifted and removed from the inner and outer thighs.
Loose skin of the breast causes a condition called breast ptosis, characterized by sagging of the breasts. This condition is common after massive weight loss.
Surgery removes the excess skin and glandular tissue to elevate the breasts and improve their shape. In some cases, Dr. Aboolian may recommend a breast augmentation procedure as well.
