About this Surgery
At Y Plastic Surgery, we celebrate our weight loss surgery patients and congratulate them on their weight loss success. Plastic surgery is often needed to remove excessive loose skin for men and women who have lost 100 pounds or more. Depending on the severity of the skin damage and health of the individual, body contouring procedures by double-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Asaf Yalif are completed in stages for the safety of the patient, and to achieve the best outcomes.
We can perform skin removal and surgical skin tightening procedures on the face, neck, arms, thighs, breasts, chest, back, abdomen, and buttocks. During the consultation at one of our conveniently located offices in Roswell, Alpharetta, or Woodstock, we will explain how this surgery can benefit your overall health and self-esteem, as well as transform your new figure and new life.
Losing more than 100 pounds is an accomplishment, and men and women who desire loose skin surgery after losing a significant amount of weight will be better able to enjoy their achievements with surgical contouring procedures. Ideal candidates will:
- Have medical approval from their weight loss surgery doctor
- Be at a sustained weight for at least a year
- Have lost close to 100 pounds or more
- Be in good health
- Be able to have general anesthesia for the surgery
- Not smoke

"Dr. Y and his staff are incredible. First class from initial meeting to my final release appointment. I’ve worked for a Plastic Surgeon, and have gone to several in the Atlanta area. Dr. Yalef by far surpasses them all, hands down. Dr. Yalef bedside manner, compassion are the best in Atlanta. Dr. Yalef’s Team are equally skilled in their professionalism, ease of their care & compassion for you. Dr. Y thank you from the bottom of my heart for my new look! Love you and your Team!!!????"- K.E. / Facebook / Oct 16, 2017
"Dr Yalif and his staff are A+ in my book. From the very first visit (May 2017) until now (October 2017) they all were professional, attentive,caring, truthful, and accommodating. He did a wonderful job on my necklift. And continues to care for me during the healing process. Before you decide on a plastic surgeon, you owe it to yourself to consult with Dr. Yalif."- S.W. / Google / Oct 16, 2017
"I was very scared to my appointment... crying to my husband scared, my injury is very tender and painful. Dr. Y has such great bedside manner, he was gentle and handled my hand injury with care....his staff were so kind, they even held my baby. I would highly recommend him. I am not scared of my next appointment, at all."- W.D. / Facebook / Oct 12, 2017
"I have been seeing Dr. Y for several years now and am always pleased with my results. Since beginning treatments with Dr. Y I have moved to the Nashville area but still commute to the Alpharetta location for my regular appointments because Dr. Y has given me honest input on what I need and is light-handed in his approach. I look forward to getting my mommy-makeover done here as well."- D.T. / Google / Oct 09, 2017
What to Expect
Considering the extensive amount of skin to be removed, this surgery is performed at a local hospital or an accredited ambulatory surgical center with overnight stay capabilities. The plastic surgeon may also schedule the surgeries three to six months apart to allow for healing, which is dependent on the patient’s health and other medical conditions, as well as to curtail excessive blood loss and limit the risk of infection.
Once cleared by our medical team to perform regular physical activity, our body lift patients report having more mobility and range of motion when doing basic, everyday activities. With all of the extra skin eliminated, they also report feeling dramatically different in their clothes and exuding higher levels of confidence and self-esteem. Recovery time for each patient is different and will depend on the nature and extent of the surgery performed, as well as the combination of surgeries. We do our best to educate each patient on the procedures and how to care for their operative sites after surgery.
