Benefits of Plastic Surgery after Bariatric Surgery
After bariatric surgery you might struggle to notice your weight loss results, even if you follow a better diet and fitness regimen. Loose skin and tissue are problematic, cosmetically and otherwise. The skin can obscure your new body shape; it might also be difficult to clean and prone to infection or irritation. Exercise, sports and physical activities can be uncomfortable. Range of motion might be limited.
Plastic surgery eliminates this skin and produces a firmer and flatter physique. Your weight loss results will look more obvious, giving you a much-needed burst of confidence. Many patients develop newfound motivation to maintain their weight loss results through proper diet and exercise.
Body Contouring After Bariatric Surgery Options
Post-bariatric plastic surgery is always tailored to the needs and goals of the individual patient. Your post-bariatric treatment plan will target the areas you are self-conscious of, and deliver outcomes based on your cosmetic ideal.
Your treatment plan can include any combination of the following:
Lower body lift comprehensively lifts and tightens the lower torso, including the abdomen, buttocks, groin and outer thighs. Excess skin and fat are removed, and the skin surface feels firmer and tighter.
Arm lift gives the upper arms a more attractive contour. The underlying tissues are tightened, excess skin and fat are removed and the remaining skin is wrapped more tightly around the arms.
Breast lift improves the appearance of flat, saggy breasts with downward-pointing nipples. The breasts are elevated higher on the chest wall and the nipples and areolas are corrected (and reduced in size, if needed). Excess skin is removed and the tissue is resculpted. Implants can be placed to add shape and fullness.
