Plastic surgery after bariatric surgery

Plastic surgery after bariatric surgery, also known as post-bariatric or post-weight loss surgery, aims to address excess skin and tissue that may remain after significant weight loss. Here is some information about plastic surgery options following bariatric surgery:

Body contouring procedures target areas with loose or sagging skin, helping to achieve a more toned and proportionate appearance.

Common body contouring procedures include:

Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck): Removes excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles.

Body lift: Addresses loose skin on multiple areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms.

Breast lift: Lifts and reshapes sagging breasts.

Arm lift (brachioplasty): Removes excess skin and fat from the upper arms.

Thigh lift: Removes excess skin and fat from the inner or outer thighs.

Facial Rejuvenation: Facial procedures can address sagging skin and restore a more youthful facial appearance. Examples include facelifts, neck lifts, and eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty).

Breast Surgery: Following significant weight loss, the breasts may lose volume and appear saggy. Breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction surgeries can help reshape and enhance the breasts.

Liposuction: Liposuction may be performed to target areas with stubborn pockets of fat that haven’t responded to weight loss efforts.

It’s important to note that not all individuals who undergo bariatric surgery will require or choose to undergo plastic surgery. The decision to pursue these procedures is highly personal and depends on individual goals and concerns.

During these consultations, you will have the opportunity to discuss your specific options, potential risks, and expected outcomes.
