  • 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.
