Massive weight loss following bariatric surgery is a significant accomplishment. Patients experiencing a dramatic weight loss are typically thrilled with their improved health and quality of life.
Unfortunately, patients may also face the frustration and embarrassment of excess sagging skin and tissue left behind as a result of their weight loss. Here at Aesthetic Surgical Images, we offer a variety of body sculpting surgical techniques to help men and women fully realize the results of their weight loss achievement.
Post-bariatric body sculpting surgery involves several procedures aimed at helping you achieve your desired body image following massive weight loss. Surgical options include:
• Brachioplasty: Referred to as an arm lift. In this procedure, excess skin is removed which slims and adds definition to the upper arms.
• Medial and vertical thighplasty: This procedure, also known as a thigh lift, removes excess fat and skin in the thigh area.
• Circumferential body lift: A circumferential tummy tuck removes excess skin around the lower body. The abdomen is flatter and the buttocks are lifted.
Our board-certified physicians carefully screen patients to ensure they are ideal candidates for post-bariatric surgery. Our doctors typically require surgical candidates to have maintained a stable, healthy weight for a minimum of six months and be free of any obesity-related health problems. Patients are also urged to stop smoking for at least six weeks prior and four weeks after surgery to ensure optimal healing.
