I appreciate everything you have done professionally and also your empathic concern for my welfare. It means so much in the patient-doctor relationship. You are special.
Thank you for helping me feel less stressed about how I am going to look after the surgery. It has been a very scary experience for me and you have helped to take some of the great fear out of the outcome. Thank you so much!
Grateful for your expertise. Grateful for your gift. Grateful for the start of a healthy new life. Grateful for you Dr. Timek. Thank you for everything.
We are amazed at what has been accomplished so far and I am looking forward to future recovery. It is so good to be in skillful hands.
I do not know that words can even express how special you have been to me and what a positive difference you all have made in my life.
My experience at Advanced Plastic Surgery has been wonderful. Dr. Timek has a lovely empathic extension, I felt heard, and understood.


Body contouring after major weight loss reduces the excess skin and fat that is left behind from the expansion of skin, loss of fat and lack of tissue elasticity that often occurs after a major weight loss. This sagging skin commonly develops around the face, neck, upper arms, breast, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs and can make your body contour appear irregular and misshapen. If you have undergone dramatic weight loss either through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, and you are at your optimum weight loss goal, you may be a good candidate for this surgery and may wish to consider undergoing this procedure.

The success of body contouring, whether it is done to reduce, enlarge or lift, is influenced by your age and by the size, shape and skin tone of the area to be treated. Some contouring procedures leave only small, inconspicuous scars. More noticeable scars may result when surgical removal of fat and skin is necessary to achieve your desired result. Most patients find these scars acceptable and enjoy greater self-confidence when wearing a bathing suit or form-fitting clothes.

It is not uncommon, depending on individual patient factors, the extent of surgery needed and surgeon preference, for massive weight loss patients to have multiple operations performed in stages. In such cases, the waiting period between surgeries ranges from weeks to several months or longer. During your consultation Dr. Timek will advise which procedures are appropriate for your particular anatomy.
