Post-Bariatric Surgery Reconstruction
Bariatric surgery is a procedure that is used to help patients lose weight when they have struggled using conventional methods. After surgery, many patients experience dramatic weight loss, sometimes of 100 pounds or more. Because of this significant weight loss and the rapid speed at which patients lose the weight, excess skin can develop.
People want to feel freer and lighter after their weight loss, not self-conscious with excess skin. Because of this, post-bariatric surgery reconstruction is a perfect option to allow patients to feel more confident in their appearance.
Post-Bariatric surgery reconstruction is not a single procedure but a combination of procedures that a skilled surgeon will tailor to an individual case. Once a person loses the weight and their weight stabilizes, they should see a surgeon to evaluate what their best options are. Tummy tucks, tummy lifts, liposuction, breast lifts, face lifts, and other procedures are all common means of giving the patient the body that they want and need.
If you believe that you may need post-bariatric surgery reconstruction, see a skilled surgeon with experience doing these procedures.
