Losing a lot of weight with or without bariatric surgery can leave you with a significant amount of loose skin. Post-bariatric surgery, or body contouring procedures, can help to reshape the body to create a more attractive silhouette.
Why Massive Weight loss Surgery?
Massive weight loss often leaves patients with loose skin which can take away from the significant change in their natural body shape from weight loss. Body contouring procedures can remove excess skin, tighten the tissues, and create more attractive contours in both the upper and lower body. Patients who lose a lot of facial fat after weight loss can also consider facial implants, facelift surgery or facial fillers to restore a more youthful look.
Post-massive weight loss patients often experience excess skin around the abdomen and may need tummy tuck surgery to reshape this area. Other problem areas include the breasts, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms.
Post Massive weight loss Surgery Procedures
Every weight loss patient has different goals and some patients may require more than one procedure to achieve their ideal results. Dr. Kilaru will create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve the best possible result with one, or a series, of body contouring procedures. You will be given detailed post-op instructions to ensure an optimal recovery with each procedure.
Common post-bariatric surgery procedures include:
- Arm Lift
- Thigh Lift
- Circumferential Body Lift
- Breast Lift
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Reduction
- Tummy Tuck
- Mini Tummy Tuck
- Facial Surgeries
Procedures can be spaced several weeks apart, or performed at the same time, depending on the extent of surgery, your health, and other factors. Your treatment plan will take several factors into consideration with your health being a top priority.
What to Expect with Post-massive weight loss surgery
Almost all the procedures are performed under general anesthesia and may be spaced a few months apart to ensure optimal healing time in between treatments. Dr. Kilaru and his staff will walk you through the entire treatment plan so you know what to expect.
Maintaining a healthy weight and a healthy lifestyle after any type of plastic surgery is essential for maintaining results. Weight gain after post-bariatric surgery and body contouring can severely impact results so it’s important for patients to be at a stable weight before undergoing any body contouring procedure.
Having realistic expectations, and following all post-op instructions, can help you achieve the best possible outcome. Our team and Dr. Kilaru are here for you every step of the way.
