Bariatric surgery is very effective at its intended goal, helping people lose significant amounts of weight in a short period of time. However, a side-effect of rapid weight loss is sagging skin, much of which can fold over, obscure weight loss results, and continue to detract from your appearance and physical abilities.
Post bariatric surgery body contouring is the most effective way to address the aesthetic and physical issues caused by speedy weight loss. By customizing solutions that focus on your areas of concern, board-certified Virginia plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside can help trim and tone your frame to help accentuate the results of your initial weight loss.
Post Bariatric Surgery Body Contouring Options
Common solutions used for sculpting the post bariatric surgery body include:
- Liposuction to remove those last stubborn deposits of fat
- Tummy tuck surgery to strengthen abdominal muscles and remove excess skin from the stomach, hips, and waist
- Thigh lift to trim and tone the upper legs
- Arm lift to firm skin to the upper arms
Other options such as body lift, breast lift for women, or breast reduction for men may also be a part of post bariatric surgery body contouring. What’s best for your needs will be determined during your initial consultation with Dr. Gartside.
