Dr. DuPéré’s Plastic Surgery Techniques After Weight Loss

Body contouring procedures after weight loss are complex but very gratifying for both patients and Dr. DuPéré. Since 2001, he has developed and refined his techniques through work at one of Toronto’s LAP-BAND® surgical centers and through several courses with Dr. Ted Lockwood and Dr. J. Peter Rubin, leaders in the post-weight loss surgery industry.

Dr. DuPéré has extensive experience with many different kinds of cases. The results of each patient’s drastic weight loss manifest in different ways, but there are usually a few common areas of concern: the arms, neck, breasts, midsection, buttocks, thighs, and back. Sagging skin is left behind in these regions when the pounds fall away, and no amount of exercise or healthy eating can correct it.

The amount of sagginess is influenced by the amount of weight lost, as well as a patient’s genetics, gender, age, history of pregnancies, level of physical activity, and so on. Some of the procedures recommended for weight loss patients are also used on people who haven’t lost weight, but others have been designed specifically to address the sagging tissue seen in massive weight loss.

Some of the most common procedures Dr. DuPéré performs on post-weight loss patients are:

  • Realistic Expectations: It is crucial for candidates to have realistic expectations about the outcomes of plastic surgery after weight loss. While these procedures can dramatically improve body contours, individual results may vary based on factors such as skin elasticity and surgical techniques.
