Plastic Surgery after Massive Weight Loss

Posted by admin in Plastic Surgery

Weight loss surgery is helping an increasing number of men and women in Atlanta and throughout the United States to overcome obesity. In many patients, massive weight loss results in excess skin and fat that is left from the expansion of skin, loss of fat and lack of tissue elasticity that often occurs after a major weight loss. The sagging skin can make your body contour appear irregular and misshapen. This can cause both emotional and physical discomfort and keep patients from fully enjoying their slimmer, healthier physique.

Body contouring can be the answer to those looking to improve their appearance after massive weight loss. The success of body contouring, whether is done to reduce, enlarge or lift, is influenced by age and by the size, shape and skin tone of the area to be treated. Some body contouring procedures leave only small scars, more noticeable scars may result when surgical removal of fat and skin is necessary to achieve the desired result.

Post-Bariatric surgery is a serious decision, especially if the individual has already gone through bariatric or weight loss surgery. However, the benefits may out-weigh the risks. Patients who choose post-bariatric surgery after weight loss or bariatric surgery report not only an improved body image but also, improved balance of life, mobility, and self-confidence. If you have excess skin from massive weight loss and it’s causing you medical problems, post-bariatric surgery may be the right solution for you to finally achieve the body image you’ve always wanted.
