Bariatric Surgery

Being overweight and obese can pose a range of serious health risks, raising the possibility of developing life-threatening conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, skeletal damage and cancer. Emotionally, being fat may also affect your mental well-being and your ability to enjoy a good quality life.

Bariatric Surgery

Look Fabulous After Long-Term Weight Loss 

Bariatric surgery is a weight-loss option that can be used to help patients lose weight where diet and exercise have failed to achieve meaningful and lasting results. While Precision Aesthetics does not perform bariatric surgery, we can advise you on the range of options available at the Centre of Excellence for Metabolic Medicine and Surgery (CEMMS) at the Waterfall City Hospital in Midrand, Johannesburg. A comprehensive team approach involving an endocrinologist, a bariatric surgeon, a psychologist, a psychiatrist, a nutritionist and a plastic surgeon is applied to assess and treat all patients.

These options can include the following:

  • Non-surgical interventions to limit appetite
  • Gastric bands
  • Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy
  • LaparoscopicGastric bypass surgery

For clients who have had bariatric surgery elsewhere and who now feel the need to deal with excess skin due to extensive weight loss, Precision Aesthetics seeks to offer meaningful interventions that can help tackle loose and sagging skin. Dr. Ching, in consultation with CEMMS, can assess your physique and metabolic status in order to advise you safely about procedures that may best suit you. These may include a belt lipectomy, tummy tuck, thigh or arm tuck, breast reduction, facelift or liposuction. It could also include non-surgical procedures such as Thermage, CoolSculpting and laser treatments. Whatever you require, you can be assured of a safe and effective solution.
