Losing a large amount of weight can change someone’s life in a number of ways. Weight loss can considerably improve a person’s overall health, as well as their confidence and self-esteem. However, in many cases, massive weight loss can create a new aesthetic difficulty: stretched, excess skin. That’s where post-bariatric surgery comes in. Post-bariatric surgery involves using body contouring procedures to help safely remove the loose skin left over after weight loss. But which cosmetic surgeries can help patients after weight loss? Allow me to explain.
Since weight loss occurs all over the body, I perform post-bariatric surgery to a wide variety of areas including the abdomen, back, arms, legs, neck, and more. A body lift can help patients who experience sagging skin in the abdomen, back, buttocks, and thighs. Other popular post-bariatric procedures include tummy tuck surgery (using my signature scarpa fascia technique for waist enhancement), arm lift, thigh lift, breast lift, and facelift.
In the following video, I discuss post-bariatric surgery and how these procedures can help patients put the finishing touches on their weight loss journey:
Weight loss is a great accomplishment that should not be diminished by the prevalence of loose skin. Post-bariatric surgery can be a great way to maximize the impact of your weight loss and truly achieve the new appearance you deserve.
