Post-Weight Loss Surgery in Chicago, IL

Losing a significant amount of weight takes incredible work and discipline, which is exactly why it can be frustrating when your payoff is a saggy, flabby body with loose skin hanging off. For many men and women, this is an unfortunate reality that comes with weight loss. Regardless of where the hanging skin resides, plastic surgery is generally the only way to resolve the issue.

This cosmetic procedure can be life-changing, serving as the last step of our patients' weight loss journey and the ultimate reward for all of their hard work getting fit.

To learn more about post-weight loss surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Lawrence Iteld and the team at our Chicago, IL office.

Every patient's case is unique so we'll begin with a private consultation to discuss your goals and the areas you'd like to address.

The entire staff here was so amazing, I cannot recommend them enough! I had top surgery with Dr. Iteld and he, and the entire staff, were extremely welcoming, kind, and so supportive every step of the way. They are extremely affirming and take the time to make sure you have all your questions answered and feel comfortable. I had never had any surgery before and everyone at this location made me feel so at ease. And my results are AMAZING! I am so grateful to Dr. Iteld and his entire team for going above and beyond to help me through this process and for giving me a chest that I love! I truly cannot thank everyone enough for what they have given me.

Totally amazed at the transformation - fantastic follow-up - It took time but I am totally amazed at the transformation. I had a tummy tuck with a 360 lipo and I was way overdue for this. I was a little worried because of my age. No fear because Dr Iteld did such an amazing job . I dropped 2 dresses went from a 12 to an 8 in 2 months. My belly is gone. Better then before my children. Followed his instructions and his follow up was fantastic he checked on my progress physically in his office seeing me twice a week for over a month then weekly. If I had issues they were addressed. I’ve had a lot of past surgeries for medicals reasons but this is the best follow up I’ve ever had. Dr Iteld took a true interest in every step of the way.

When should I get after weight loss surgery?

As you start to lose weight, areas of loose skin will become more apparent in different areas of the body. This is likely the best time to book a surgical consultation at Iteld Plastic Surgery. Patients should be at a stable weight before undergoing this procedure to ensure the best possible results. Plus, it is important to have realistic expectations and understand that recovery may take some time.

What will recovery be like after weight loss surgery?

Recovery will vary depending on the specific procedures performed and your individual healing abilities. Generally, patients should plan for at least several weeks of downtime and avoid strenuous physical activity during this time. You may also experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising, but these side effects are temporary and can be managed with medication prescribed by our team in Chicago, IL.
