Share Article

Plastic surgery procedures are more popular than ever following bariatric surgery. People in Boston are choosing these procedures from Dr. Michael Tantillo to remove excess skin and residual fat.

With the increased popularity of bariatric surgery procedures such as Lap-Band® surgery and gastric bypass surgery, people are seeking cosmetic surgeons to put the finishing touches on their weight loss journey with procedures like Boston liposuction, abdominoplasty, and body lift. Local plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Tantillo ( says that he has seen more interest than ever in men and women seeking cosmetic surgery procedures after losing a significant amount of weight.

"While weight loss procedures are helping people live healthier and manage their weight, loose skin will not re-contour to a slimmer body shape on its own," says Dr. Tantillo. "This is where cosmetic surgery in Boston can help by removing excess skin and fat tissue for a more comfortable and confident appearance."

Dr. Tantillo is meeting the demand to correct the effects of significant weight loss by performing a variety of body contouring procedures including liposuction, tummy tucks, arm lifts, and breast lifts. To maximize results, he considers various aspects such as the amount of weight the individual has lost and the location of the excess skin before determining which procedure or combination of procedures best fits a patient's goals. Combination cosmetic procedures are very popular since they work together to enhance results.

"When considering Boston plastic surgery after weight loss, people need to take the time to choose a well-qualified surgeon who will tailor each procedure to the needs of post weight loss patients," notes Dr. Tantillo. "Unfortunately, some cosmetic surgeons lack the experience and training to create excellent results for this patient group. When a person has come so far, lost the weight, and is trying to get their health back on track, this can be a major disappointment."

Dr. Tantillo points out that even after choosing a highly-experienced surgeon, people having post weight loss plastic surgery need to make sure they take care of themselves so that their results are long-lasting. The increased comfort and improved self confidence that come with a slimmer, tighter body contour often helps people who have achieved significant weight loss to exercise more regularly and continue to eat healthy meals.

"For people who have lost a lot of weight, plastic surgery can really change their lives and help them sustain a healthier lifestyle for years to come," says Dr. Tantillo. "I'm honored to be able to help so many patients look and feel remarkably better, and I hope the trend toward healthier living that I've been seeing continues."

Dr. Michael Tantillo ( is a Boston plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He received his medical degree from the University of Alabama School of Medicine and went on to receive extensive training including a plastic surgery residency through Harvard University. As a faculty member of Harvard Medical School, Dr. Tantillo continues to expand and contribute his knowledge by staying up to date on the latest cosmetic and plastic surgery techniques.
