If you have undergone significant weight loss from bariatric surgery, or diet and exercise, congratulations!
Graw Beauty can help you with body contouring after weight loss in Palo Alto.
It is common to be left with extra skin and tissue that needs to be removed in order to achieve that ultimate body you have worked so hard for. “Body contouring” is the general term for these procedures, and can refer to procedures pertaining to the arms, breasts, trunk, buttocks, and legs. With Dr. Graw, body contouring will be 100% customized to the individual, addressing each concern you may have.
Despite losing a significant amount of weight, you may feel that you have loose, extra skin that doesn’t seem to snap back around your new, underlying figure. This skin is typically stretched to the point where no amount of diet or exercise can resolve it, and only surgical intervention can be effective. Dr. Graw has an extraordinary level of expertise in body contouring after weight loss in Palo Alto and has trained with international gurus on this subject at Stanford University and Beverly Hills, CA.
Dr. Graw further honed her considerable skills under the tutelage of some of the most acclaimed plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. Her refined skills, precision approach, and meticulous attention to detail produce exceptional results – a sleeker, sexier version of your body that fits your natural appearance.
You have already endured an effortful journey to weight loss, but one last step remains that can make a drastic difference in your confidence. If you were left with loose, hanging skin and tissue, you likely still feel the need to camouflage your figure with loose clothing and may hesitate to consider wearing anything revealing or form-fitting. Imagine being able to show off your new body in that elegant sleeveless top, glamorous dress, sexy swimsuit, and sporty yoga pants–it’s a whole new confidence.
That is the beauty of Dr. Graw’s personalized body contouring after weight loss in Palo Alto – enhancing your raw silhouette and feeling confident and proud in it.
While every surgery is customized, the general rules hold true. Initially, you will have a consultation with Dr. Graw, where you will express your areas of concern. A full examination of your body will reveal what needs to be accomplished to achieve your desired goals. Dr. Graw will discuss in detail the options that exist, and with you, come up with a plan that satisfies your personal needs. Depending on your specific circumstances, she will discuss performing surgeries in one stage or in multiple stages. Only once you and Dr. Graw are ensured to be on the same page, will any procedure proceed.
From the consultation process to the day of surgery, you will be in close contact with our staff, who will guide you through the pre-operative visit, and various tests/other doctor’s visits that you may need prior to your surgery. You will receive a detailed, post-surgery instruction packet that you may read beforehand. On the day of surgery, you will be welcomed by our well-trained and experienced surgical staff. Dr. Graw will then see you and perform any required markings on your body. These markings serve as a road map to tailoring her surgery to your body’s needs in achieving the desired outcome.
You will then undergo anesthesia by one of our highly professional and experienced MD anesthesiologists, and be well taken care of by Dr. Graw and her surgical team. Once you have woken up from anesthesia, you will be cared for in the recovery unit by our skilled nurses and physicians. Dr. Graw will see you before you are discharged, and she will go over instructions with your caregiver. Later that evening, she will call you to check in on you. You will then see her for your first post-operative visit. All throughout your post-operative recovery, Dr. Graw and her staff will be accessible to whatever questions and concerns you may have.

All surgical incisions create scars. However, Dr. Graw is very careful to place scars in the least visible locations, usually hidden within normal clothing wear. Dr. Graw wants you to enjoy the full benefit of your commitment to better health, and the joy of living and confidence that comes with it!
