Post Weight Loss
Losing significant amounts of weight, through bariatric surgery or diet and exercise, is a big step for many people to live healthier lifestyles and feel better about the way they look. However, a range of body areas can be affected by loose skin, excess fat deposits, and extra skin folds once large amounts of weight have been lost. Our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, can improve these areas with post-bariatric and after-weight loss body contouring surgery. A number of effective treatments can eliminate excess fat and skin and reshape your body to give you a tighter, firmer physique. A full compendium of treatment options can target specific areas of the body that are affected by excess skin folds and fat deposits after significant weight loss.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Remove excess skin, tighten muscles, and reduce fatty tissue from the abdomen with tummy tuck surgery. This procedure can help reveal the results of your weight loss after bariatric surgery or diet and exercise.
It’s not unusual to have a few remaining pockets of fat even after losing a substantial amount of weight. Liposuction can target these areas of excess fatty tissue and help contour your body for a more aesthetically appealing figure while you continue on your journey towards a healthier you.
Breast tissue can begin to droop when you lose a dramatic amount of weight. Breast lift surgery with or without implants can help restore the shape and youthfulness of your breasts with beautiful results.
If overly large breasts cause you physical and/or psychological pain, a breast reduction may be able to help. This procedure reduces excess tissue to bring the breasts down to a more manageable and comfortable size.
If your breasts are smaller than you like after losing weight, breast augmentation can add volume and fullness. We offer a comprehensive range of breast implant types, and Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani is extensively skilled in providing a natural-looking result.
Excess skin can develop just about anywhere, including on the face and neck. If weight loss has led to skin laxity in these areas, neck lift surgery can help contour your jawline and define your chin. We offer a range of treatment options to suit your needs and goals.
Recovery from post-bariatric and after-weight loss body contouring surgery will depend on which procedures you undergo and the number of treatments you have. Major surgical procedures will often require at least two to three weeks of recovery before resuming normal daily routines. Other procedures such as breast augmentation may require less recovery time; however, there will still need to be a substantial period of recovery in order for the treated areas to heal properly.
