Post Bariatric Plastic Surgery

post bariatric surgery



Bariatric, or gastric bypass, surgery can be highly successful in helping morbidly obese patients lose large
amounts of weight. One unfortunate result is that the stretched and inelastic skin hangs loose over the slimmer body beneath. Post-bariatric plastic surgery combines reconstructive and cosmetic techniques to tighten, lift and contour sagging areas for a more attractive appearance. The patient may choose to treat the arms, breasts, abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, neck, face or other areas. The choice of procedures and the order in which they are performed are individualized to each patient’s needs. In fact, some surgeries may be combined. Following bariatric surgery and the weight loss that follows, patients are left with enormous amounts of skin and soft-tissue excess that needs to be tailored just like a suit of clothes. Losing large amounts of weight can be the most exciting adventure of a person’s life. But because the excess skin does not go away when the weight goes away, patients are often distressed at the excess skin that remains. The goal of this plastic surgery after large weight loss is not just about removing excess skin but to molds the affected areas of the body, creating the most attractive contours possible. For each bariatric there are multiple plastic surgery procedures that may be performed, transforming the patient from head to toe.

These surgeries include:

  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Lift with possible breast implants
  • Breast Reduction
  • Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction) Surgery
  • Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck
  • Body Lift
  • Liposuction
