After a massive amount of weight loss from dieting or bariatric surgery, many people experience excess skin. There are also problem areas such as the stomach and thighs that have stubborn fat deposits which do not respond to dieting. Post-bariatric surgery, often called body contouring, is a surgical process that helps people achieve an ideal body shape.
Post-bariatric surgery is a combination of procedures like a tummy tuck, arm lift, and thigh lift. For many who have undergone bariatric surgery, their body size shrinks dramatically, which can leave excess skin. For women, breast lifts are a popular choice, as many have experienced dramatic sagging of their breasts. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Andre Aboolian to discuss what combination will suit your needs. Each lift has its own set of technical considerations as well, whether it may be incision size or location.
