Body Lift Post Bariatric Surgery
The decision to have bariatric surgery can be the best one of your life if you are extremely overweight. Obesity can have a negative impact on your health and emotional well-being. Finally finding a way to shed the weight can help you feel like a new you. The only downside of losing a hundred or more pounds is that the skin does not always rebound. It is common for those who have had bariatric surgery to be left with saggy or loose skin. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery offers a body lift post-bariatric surgery to remove excess skin and reshape your new body.
Bariatric surgery can be very effective to lose a significant amount of weight quickly. It is not uncommon for patients to lose well over a hundred pounds in less than a year. While the body shrinks, the skin is still stretched to its previous size. It is common for patients to experience sagging skin on several areas of their body once they achieve a significant amount of weight loss. This can include flaps of skin and tissue on the upper arms, abdomen, pubic area, buttocks and thighs.
Plastic Surgery After Bariatric Weight Loss
Many patients who achieve excessive weight loss with bariatric surgery consider plastic surgery to address sagging or loose skin or tissue. This can include individual lift surgeries – abdominoplasty for the stomach, breast lifts, arm lifts and thigh lifts can be performed to tighten and firm a specific area. Another procedure that can be performed is a body lift. To learn more about plastic surgery after weight loss, view the following page(s):
