Bariatric surgery is an effective surgery for people who are morbidly obese as it allows for maximum weight loss in a very short amount of time. While there are a number of benefits related to rapid and significant weight loss, losing large amounts of fat in a short period can result in less than ideal aesthetic results. It is not uncommon for people to experience uneven and severely saggy areas of the body following bariatric or gastric bypass surgery.
Large amounts of loose and sagging skin are common following bariatric weight loss surgery. Loose skin not only detracts from your appearance, it can make choosing clothing difficult and interfere with physical activities.
You have clearly committed to weight loss and you deserve to enjoy the full benefits your new body offers. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña can customize a body lift to address your problem areas and provide you with the toned and firm appearance you have already worked so hard to achieve.
If you have lost a significant amount of weight, but are troubled by loose and sagging skin, contact Dr. Peña at his Naples office to schedule your consultation.
WHAT PROCEDURES ARE RECOMMENDED FOR BODY CONTOURING AFTER SURGICAL WEIGHT LOSS?
Weight loss surgery is incredibly effective at helping people lose a significant amount of weight in a short period of time and deserves to be applauded for the amazing results it can produce. However, along with significant weight loss can come excessive amounts of sagging or loose skin and stubborn deposits of excess fat that simply refuse to respond to diet and exercise.
There are a number of body contouring options Dr. Peña may recommend that can be used alone or in combination to help weight loss surgery patients achieve their body shaping goals. The surgical procedures include:
- Liposuction to address stubborn fat deposits throughout the body
- Thigh lift to contour the upper legs
- Brazilian Butt Lift for a firmer and more appealing backside
- Tummy tuck to remove excess skin around the midsection and to tighten and tone abdominal muscles
- Arm lift to remove sagging skin from the upper arms
- Breast reduction (male and female) Breast lift to bring the chest into ideal proportions
- Neck and facelift to smooth skin and accentuate pleasing facial features
In some cases, Dr. Peña may suggest combining many of these procedures for a full body lift, though this is not necessary for every patient. The best way to learn which procedures can help you achieve your cosmetic goals is through a confidential consultation with Dr. Peña at our Naples, FL office.
