About Massive Weight Loss Surgery
When a patient has had massive weight loss often the excess skin and tissue that remain can interfere with movement, become a conduit for rashes and hold odor, and even prevent you from getting into the clothing you should be able to wear with your new body and frankly getting to see the new body hiding beneath the excess skin. MWL is life-changing and many patients desire “putting a bow” on the final package, as this is a major achievement! Typically, these types of surgical procedures are considered after maintaining your goal weight for at least 3 months.

"Dr. Ellsworth performed a Flap surgical procedure on me. I had a stage 4 isheal pressure ulcer that required removal of tissue to the bone. I then had to lay on my side for 5 weeks in an LTAC facility.Dr. Ellsworth and his staff took very good care of me pre and post-op, which was over 1 year. He has an exceptional bedside manner. He and his entire staff are very professional. He takes time with his patients.In addition, Dr. Ellsworth did a procedure on our 22 year old son to remove excess skin from his tummy after he lost 65 lbs."- B.V. / Google / Jul 30, 2016
