As a dedicated plastic surgeon serving the vibrant communities of Columbia, Maryland, and the DMV area, Dr. Sarah Mess understands firsthand the incredible transformations brought about by medical weight loss. However, one challenge many face after significant weight loss is skin laxity. Our practice is committed to guiding patients through the array of treatment options available to address this concern, ensuring that the journey to a healthier self is both fulfilling and complete.

Understanding Skin Laxity Post-Weight Loss

Weight loss, especially significant amounts often achieved through medical interventions like semaglutide injections (Ozempic, Wegovy), can leave you with excess, sagging skin. This occurs because the skin has lost its elasticity due to being stretched for a long period.


Non-Surgical Solutions

Our practice is proud to provide a range of non-surgical treatments designed to address skin laxity and enhance your appearance following significant weight loss. These state-of-the-art procedures offer effective solutions without the need for surgery. Each treatment is tailored to meet the unique needs and goals of our patients, ensuring optimal results with minimal downtime. 

  • Botox and Fillers: Ideal for facial rejuvenation, these treatments can smooth out wrinkles and restore volume, enhancing your facial contours post-weight loss.
  • VirtueRF (RF Microneedling): This cutting-edge treatment combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and stimulate collagen production, ideal for areas with mild to moderate skin laxity.
  • EMSculpt® NEO: A revolutionary treatment that not only helps in skin tightening but also builds muscle, perfect for enhancing the tone of your newly slimmed physique.
  • CoolSculpting® Elite: An excellent option for targeting stubborn fat pockets that may persist even after weight loss, this treatment also contributes to a more contoured appearance.


Surgical Solutions

For those seeking more dramatic and long-lasting solutions, surgical interventions may be the ideal choice.

  • Fat Transfer: Combat “Ozempic Face” with this innovative procedure that involves transferring fat from one area of the body to another. It’s a natural way to enhance contours and restore a more youthful, balanced appearance.
  • Body Contouring: Tailored to sculpt and define your body’s shape, this comprehensive surgery addresses excess skin and fat following significant weight loss. It reshapes various areas, providing a smoother, more toned overall appearance.
  • Breast Surgery: Options like Breast Reduction, Lift, and Augmentation are tailored to restore breast shape and size, aligning them with your new body profile.
  • Brachioplasty (Arm Lift): Specifically targets sagging skin in the upper arms, creating a more toned and proportionate appearance.
  • Tummy Tuck: Perfect for removing excess abdominal skin and tightening muscles, this surgery enhances your waistline and overall body contour.
  • Liposuction: While not primarily a skin-tightening procedure, it can be combined with other surgeries to refine and contour specific areas.


Customizing Your Treatment Plan

Every individual’s journey is unique, which is why Dr. Mess emphasizes a personalized approach. During your consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your specific goals, medical history, and the best course of action to achieve your desired outcome. It’s not just about looking better—it’s about feeling confident and comfortable in your new body.
