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.
Other post-bariatric or after-weight loss procedures can include:
- Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
- Breast Lift
- Breast Reduction
- Breast Augmentation
- Neck Contouring
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.
