About this Surgery

"I came in from out of state to have my procedures done with Dr. Virden. He is extremely personable, knowledgeable and confident in what he does. On the day of my pre-op, as I was flying into Reno, my flights were diverted and delayed and I didn't get in until late. Dr, Virden went above and beyond to meet with me outside of normal office hours to make sure I was ready and confident for surgery the next morning. He is caring and attentive and checked in on me over the weekend after the surgery. I'm extremely happy with my results. My breasts look amazing and my tummy flat! I have had minimal pain after surgery and I attribute that to having an extremely skilled surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Virden!"- Google User / Google / Nov 22, 2016
"I went to see Dr Virden over work that needed to be redone by another surgeon and I was uncomfortable nervous scared because of the previous treatment. Dr virden explained to me exactly what needed to be done how it would be fixed,h was very knowledgeable, personable, and compassionate. He had a true concern for what was going on with me and how to fix it. I now feel very comfortable having the work fixed by Dr. Virden."- L.D. / Google / May 16, 2019

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 to occur 3 – 6 months apart to allow for healing, depending on the patient’s health and other medical conditions or to curtail excessive blood loss and limit the risk of infection.
Once cleared by the surgeon to perform regular physical activity, our patients report to 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 exude a higher self-confidence. Recovery time for each patient is different and it will depend on the nature and extent of the surgery performed, as well as the combination of surgeries. Our plastic surgeon does our best to educate each patient on the procedures and how to care for their body after surgery.
