Body Contouring After Bariatric Surgery

Total body lift before and after photoFollowing massive weight loss, most people are excited about the new number on the scale, but this excitement is often tempered by disappointment with the deflated skin left behind. You’ve worked hard to achieve this body weight, and the excess tissue can make you feel like you haven’t gotten to the full manifestation of your goals.

Body procedures after weight loss surgery address:

  • Excess skin
  • Loose skin
  • Hanging skin
  • Extra skin folds

When you gain a lot of weight, the skin begins to stretch to accommodate the weight gain. It usually loses a lot of elasticity as it stretches, which means it won’t shrink back once the excess weight is gone. This loose skin may be on your belly, back, chest, hips, thighs, arms and elsewhere. Your breasts and buttocks may look deflated as well. When the loose skin doesn’t conform to your new, slimmer body contours, it can be removed with a lifting and tightening procedure performed by Dr. Agha.

The folds of skin lead to a variety of problems, including:

  • Low self-esteem
  • Chafing and rashes
  • Interference with your ability to keep your skin clean
  • Sexual and urinary discomfort
  • Discomfort while exercising and being active
  • Poor self-image

Deflated skin serves as a constant reminder of your former body weight, which can be emotionally taxing. Body contouring and skin removal procedures mean you can enjoy the full effect of your weight-loss efforts, as they relate to a healthier BMI and a body you are comfortable in.

There are many procedures suited to someone who has lost weight after bariatric surgery:

After weight loss surgery, or even with exercise alone, some people lose 100 pounds or more. These procedures are targeted at the effects of that kind of massive weight loss.

Dr. Agha will make sure these types of procedures are right for what you want to achieve. He’ll make sure you are a good candidate and that your body is prepared to undergo these surgeries. Your weight must be stable beforehand. If you are still in the process of active weight-loss post surgery, then you must delay these procedures. The reason is that your results look their best and your risk of complications is lowest once your weight has stabilized.
