  • Body Contouring: Re-Shaping the Body After Bariatric Surgery

    Following weeks of recovery after major surgery, the last thing most people want to think about is doing it again. If you are bariatric patient coming off of weight loss surgery, however, chances are this may be one of the first things on your mind. After the extreme weight loss that follows bariatric surgery, 100 pounds or more in many instances, skin is left loose and saggy; excess tissue hangs from the abdomen below the belt line, and the hope of being able to finally feel comfortable in "normal" clothes is postponed by hanging flesh that just doesn't seem to fit on your much slimmer frame. Many patients like this turn to plastic surgery to help contour the body, giving shape to their new form. If you've experienced a significant amount of weight loss and are uncomfortable with the excess skin left behind contact plastic surgery doctors in your area and find out what options are best for you.

  • Body Lift Procedures for Excess Skin Removal

    Loose skin is a common outcome of extreme weight loss, such as after pregnancy, losing a substantial amount of weight from weight loss surgery, medical weight loss or natural dieting. Very few people can successfully get rid of loose skin with diet and exercise; the excess skin does not ‘burn off’ the body in the same way as body fat does, so surgery may be necessary to reshape and contour the body. Body lift procedures provide a solution for managing loose skin; these procedures involve repositioning the skin and removing excess skin folds to completely reshape the area. Plastic surgeons offer a number of different types of body lift procedures for patients who want to sculpt their body and achieve an attractive silhouette.
