Women and men alike who undergo major weight loss are usually ecstatic, having overcome a big hurdle in their life. The downside: while their new figure represents a proud accomplishment, sometimes they will be faced with more frustrations. This is due to the stretched-out skin left behind on the body. Significant weight loss commonly leaves individuals with skin that cannot conform to the new shape. No matter where the skin deformity resides, plastic surgery is needed to rid the issue. Dr. Chet Mays performs brachioplasty (arm lift), thigh lift, and body lift as part of after weight loss surgery for Louisville, KY men and women. This usually is a life-changing procedure at Mays Plastic Surgery & Med Spa and is also a lasting step in their personal transformation.

Cosmetic skin removal surgery is typically considered a major treatment. This surgery utilizes general anesthesia and can take between 3 – 6 hours, depending upon how many procedures are combined. Liposuction is usually integrated during the procedure to remove isolated fat pockets, followed by skin removal. This surgery does make longer incisions than most other cosmetic procedures so varying degrees of scars will be a part of this treatment. During this procedure, Dr. Mays makes every attempt to create the incisions as inconspicuous as possible. Our expert team will give you comprehensive scar treatment instructions for an effective outcome.  An additional benefit to the post-operative outcome is using lymphatic massages by a skilled massage therapist at Mays Plastic Surgery and Med Spa.

Dr Mays is a true professional. He and his team do great work!

Dr Mays and his staff are truly one of a kind and flat out AMAZING! The minute I had my first consult with him I knew I didn't need to look any further. I am 8 months post-op from lipo, breast reduction and tummy tuck. Unfortunately, I had a little setback from a large seroma several months ago that caused some elasticity problems. Dr Mays was confident my revision two weeks ago would yield the results I wanted. He was not wrong! I could not be more happy with my new look. Thank you for everything!

Best experience ever - one of best doctors I’ve ever met - Dr. Mays is one of best doctors I’ve ever met. He listens to what his patients wants and explains everything that they understand what the outcome will be. I was so nervous about going to his office and now I’m always at ease and I credit that to him and his amazing office staff. They truly are the nicest people ever. I’ve recommended everyone I know who is looking for plastic surgery or even Botox to Dr. Mays office.
