"My experience with Dr. John Williams was the most amazing experience I've had. Out of all the Plastic Surgeons I have seen in the past, he by far was the best decision I ever made. The first time I seen him, there was no other choice to see another Plastic Surgeon, My decision was made right away. I have to say that him and his wonderful office staff made me feel so comfortable and at home from the moment I called the office just to set up a consultation to the last time I seen him. Nicole and Mckenna were so amazing! After about 9 years to finally decide to get implants, Dr. Williams changed my life forever. I absolutely recommend him to everyone and if you are still trying to decide then at least make an appointment to go and talk to him. I want to say a big Thank You to Dr. Williams for helping me become more self confident and that you changed my life."- J.S. / Yelp / Aug 21, 2017
"Dr. Williams and his staff were incredible, they made everything about the surgery experience easy to understand and I felt respected, listened to, and cared about at every step of the process."- M.S. / Google / Aug 14, 2017
"It's been 3 months since I had my "mommy makeover" which at my age is really a "grandmommy makeover!" Dr. Williams did a fantastic job, from my first consultation he and his staff made me feel extremely comfortable about the entire process. My biggest concern was that at age 55 looking like I had a "boob job." I wanted to look more like I did prior to having children, Dr. Williams and Jennifer worked with me to select the correct procedure & implant size to look completely natural. I could not be happier with my new tummy and having my breasts back where they belong. I can't say enough about how great everyone at the office is and how happy I am with my results."- D.B. / Google / Jul 31, 2017
When the body loses fat, certain areas may not shrink smaller along with the weight loss. For most patients, surgery is the only option to remove the skin deformity. The typical symptoms or conditions that result form a massive weight loss that can be treated with surgery include:
- Sagging breasts that point downward
- “Turtle neck” or flabby skin near the neck
- Excess, hanging skin or pockets of fat around the abdomen or hips
- Sagging skin and excess fat or wrinkling around the buttocks
- “Bat wings” or sagging skin underneath the upper arms
- Sagging skin and excess fat on the thigh and upper leg region
Many surgeons recommend a combination of procedures for a tighter, more youthful appearance. Doctors do this to increase the chances of seeing optimal results for many years to come. A few possible combinations of how surgeons combine surgeries may comprise of an upper body lift, which addresses the arms, breasts, neck and abdomen, or a lower body lift, which addresses the abdomen, buttock, hips and thighs.
After weight loss surgery is a serious procedure taking around 4-7 hours on average to complete, although the number varies widely due to the patients unique needs and goals. It is performed under general anesthesia and usually requires an overnight stay in the hospital. Scarring is an inevitable part of this surgery, but our talented surgeon uses the latest scar treatment methods to help minimize this as much as possible. For many individuals, after weight loss surgery provides results that are so positive, they are life transforming.

After Weight Loss Surgery FAQs
Common Areas Treated?
The most common areas for significant transformation of beauty are seen in the breasts and abdominal area, typically performed during the same surgery. This is sometimes called a Mommy Makeover. In addition, the buttocks, upper thighs, arms, neck, and knees are also common areas treated.
Due to the scope of the procedure, our team recommends that patients need to be close to or have already achieved their ideal reachable weight. However, there are times where taking away excess skin serves as a catalyst to the weight loss process. This is the case when sagging or annoying skin stands in the way of the patient’s workouts or other physical movement.
Will Insurance Cover the Cost?
As a generality, insurance companies typically do not reimburse clients for the expenses tied to a cosmetic surgery. Our billing coordinator works hard to give accurate assessments of surgical cost as well as thoroughly exploring if insurance can cover any of the cost. Sometimes, insurance will cover the cost for cosmetic surgeries where excess skin becomes a medical issue.
