Post-Bariatric Surgery

Post-Bariatric Surgery

Significant weight loss through diet and exercise or weight loss surgery is noteworthy. However, massive weight loss will often leave behind loose unwanted skin in areas of the body, including the abdomen, arms, thighs and buttocks.

Suppose your weight loss has left you with excess loose, sagging skin. In that case, you may already be considering one or more body contouring options, including:

  • Arm lift (Brachioplasty) removes excess skin hanging from the upper arms.
  • Breast lift (mastopexy) to lift up and reshape breasts by reducing the tissue envelope of extra skin.
  • Facelift (rhytidectomy) removes excess facial skin and resuspends the lax facial tissues to a superior position.
  • Lower body lifts to remove extra skin and fat from your stomach, buttocks and outer hips.
  • Panniculectomy to surgically cut the apron of excess skin (called a panniculus) that drapes below your pubic area and belly button.
  • Thigh lift to tighten the inner thighs giving a smoother, sleeker appearance by removing excess skin
  • Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) removes extra abdominal skin and tightens weak or separated abdominal muscles.

There are many options and deciding which procedure to do can be confusing. Dr Ching has been assisting Massive Weight Loss patients with these operations for more than 15 years, and he can help you with these decisions.

Some helpful tips to help prepare for your post-weight loss body contouring procedure:

  • Make sure you’re at your target weight
  • Establish healthy habits
  • Have a sound support system set in place
