"My results are more than I imagined was possible."
My results are more than I imagined was possible. I'm down 155 pounds in 6 months. I went to an annual screening that my employer requires and the numbers were the best in 30 years. The staff was professional and efficient 6 months ago as well. My biggest regret is that I waited so long to get the surgery!View On Google
Had surgery with the ALO team 8 months ago and It was an incredible experience. They were very professional, and they were very patient with me. As a physician , I can say the quality of care that I saw in this hospital was on par with american facilities. Would recommend to anyone in a heartbeatView On Google
Am I a Good Candidate For Cosmetic Surgery?
Your Weight Is Stable
For the best results, you will need to be at a stable weight for at least a few months before undergoing any plastic surgery procedures.
You Are in Good Health
These are surgical procedures, so you will need to be in good overall health to receive treatment. Underlying conditions or infections increase your risk of complications during cosmetic surgery.
You Do Not Smoke
Smoking increases your risk of complications during any plastic surgery procedure. Smoking also affects your ability to heal post-operation.
You're Committed To Being Healthy
You should be committed to a healthy lifestyle of good nutrition and exercise. Committing to this lifestyle helps reduce your risk of complications and is the best way to maintain the results of your bariatric and cosmetic surgeries.
You Have Realistic Goals
Our surgeon will review your aesthetic goals with you during your free consultation. During this appointment, our surgeon will give you an idea of the results you can expect. Plastic surgery can dramatically enhance your appearance, but it is up to you to stick to your weight loss goals to maintain your results.

I can honestly say I had a great experience, from getting picked up until the day I left. Eduardo our driver was very nice and friendly I’m very grateful. The hotel we stayed at Marriott was nice and clean and the staff were helpful, courteous and friendly.View On Google
I'm 3 years post op and still have a line of communication when needed. Still responsive. The hospital is so clean I would eat off the floor. I couldn't recommend this more highly than I do. And if you are nervous, reach out to them! They will answer all of your questions!
Id do it all over again!
Featured Cosmetic Surgery Procedures For Defining Your Figure After Weight Loss
Body contouring or a body lift is a combination of procedures for patients who have achieved dramatic weight loss. Our plastic surgeon will remove excess skin and lift and tighten the remaining tissue around the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, arms, and thighs. Liposuction can also be performed to remove excess fat in the treatment area.
Some patients combine this procedure with breast augmentation to further enhance their figures. The results of body contouring are permanent and life-changing. If you stick to a healthy lifestyle, you can enjoy your slimmed figure for the rest of your life.
A tummy tuck can be performed as part of a body contouring procedure or on its own. A tummy tuck is designed to flatten the stomach by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the underlying muscles.
During this procedure, our plastic surgeon makes one long incision from hip to hip. Our plastic surgeon can then remove excess skin and manipulate your skin and muscles to tone your abdomen. Liposuction can be paired with this procedure to remove excess fat. The results of a tummy tuck are permanent and can create a firmer, flatter, and more toned abdomen.
After significant weight loss, you may find your breasts have begun to sag. A breast lift will reshape, firm, and lift your breasts to enhance their perkiness.
During a breast lift, our surgeon will remove excess skin and tissue, reshape your breasts, and move your nipples higher onto your chest. The effects of this surgery are long-lasting; however, natural aging can cause you to need a touch-up procedure. Some patients combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation to further enhance their breast shape and size.
Buttock augmentation enhances the volume, shape, and contour of your buttocks region. Many patients find this area has flattened after significant weight loss.
Buttock augmentation increases the volume by transferring fat, placing silicone implants, or a combination of the two. Our plastic surgeon will remove excess skin, increase volume, and reshape and tighten the region to create a more aesthetically pleasing buttock.
Refine Your Figure Further by Adding Definition to Your Arms and Legs
Many patients struggle with sagging skin of the upper arms following dramatic weight loss. While lifting weights can help, it may not be enough to get the definition you want.
During an arm lift, our surgeons will remove the excess skin and tighten the remaining tissue to give your arms a slimmer and more toned look.
Sagging skin around your thighs and buttocks can make you feel self-conscious while wearing clothing like shorts or a bathing suit.
A thigh lift reshapes, smooths, and improves the tone and shape of your thigh. It can be performed on the outer thigh, inner thigh, or both for reshaping and enhancement.
Suffering From Sagging Facial Skin? A Facelift Can Help!
Droopy, saggy facial skin can make you appear older than you are. As you age, the natural elasticity of your skin gradually declines, but if you've just gone through dramatic weight loss, you may have excess skin that appeared rapidly and is affecting your self-esteem.
A facelift can add definition and restore your youthful appearance. A facelift can address sagging and excess skin on the:

The Body Lift A Timeline of Your Treatment Plan
Dramatically enhance your entire figure through a body lift.
The Results Of Body Contouring
You will be able to see a transformation immediately following surgery, but it could take a year or two for you to see your final results. Natural aging can cause your body to lose firmness, and you may want a touchup procedure later in life. However, if you maintain a healthy lifestyle, the results of your bariatric and plastic surgery can last a lifetime. The best way to ensure a safe recovery and lasting results is to follow your surgeon's recovery instructions.
Recovery After Cosmetic Surgery
Clean the Treatment Area
You will most likely have bandages around the surgical site that need to be changed and refreshed.
You will be given instructions on how to care for the treatment area and when to change out your bandages.
Do not fully remove the bandages until instructed to do so by your plastic surgeon.
Take Medications as Prescribed
You may be given a topical ointment to help your incisions heal, and you may also be given oral medication to help with swelling and pain.
You can take over-the-counter medication to manage mild pain and swelling.
Take all medications as prescribed by your plastic surgeon.
Avoid Strenuous Physical Activity
During the first couple of weeks after your surgery, you should avoid any physical activity like bending, straining, or lifting heavy objects. However, you should continue to walk around as usual during this time to prevent blood clots from forming.
Strenuous physical activity should be avoided until you are cleared by your plastic surgeon.

Plastic Surgery After Weight Loss FAQ
When will I need plastic surgery after weight loss?
You will need to wait a minimum of 18 months after your bariatric surgery before having plastic surgery. You will also need to have been at a stable weight for several months. Maintaining weight will minimize your risk for complications and ensure lasting results.
Can I prevent saggy skin after my weight loss without having surgery?
Bariatric surgery allows patients to lose a significant amount of weight in a short period. Therefore, many patients will find they have excess skin due to the rapid decrease in weight.
Building muscle can gradually help reduce saggy skin, but it may not be enough to get you your desired results. Cosmetic surgery is the best way to enhance your figure in a shorter time.
When will I know if I need cosmetic surgery after weight loss?
It can take several months or even years for your skin to tighten after dramatic weight loss. If after 18 months postoperation you still have saggy skin, it may not get any tighter. In this case, you would be a great candidate for one of our plastic surgery options.
Will my insurance pay for my cosmetic surgery?
No. However, our Tijuana practice offers all-inclusive pricing that is a fraction of the cost that it would be in the U.S.
Will I have visible scars following my cosmetic plastic surgery?
You will most likely have some visible scarring following your procedure. However, the extent and visibility of your scars depend on your surgical plan and how you care for your incisions following surgery. All surgeries that remove a significant amount of skin will leave scars.
A skilled plastic surgeon, like the one at ALO Bariatrics, is trained in performing surgical techniques that minimize scarring by placing the incisions in natural body creases whenever possible. Our surgeon will make every effort to reduce visible scarring and provide the best, lasting results.
