Massive Weight Loss-Post Bariatric Surgery
What is it?
Bariatric Surgery has become an increasingly common solution for weight loss and controlling the medical problems associated with obesity. After bariatric surgery, there is typically a period of significant weight loss, after which patients are left with significant amounts of extra skin, often all over the body. This can cause problems with chafing, infections, rashes and sores, difficulty fitting into clothes and trouble exercising post-bariatric surgery. It can be an enormous disappointment to a patient who has gone through so much and put in so much effort to lose the weight, only now to be stuck with a suit of loose skin that they cannot get rid of. The weight loss also affects the contour of the body in that the hips, buttocks and breasts tend to become deflated. Don’t be discouraged, we can help! We offer a variety of procedures that work to remove your extra skin and tissue, and restore volume to your breasts and buttocks.
