After experiencing significant weight loss, many men and women have telltale signs of their past, including extra, sagging skin hanging in areas where the most dramatic changes have occurred. The team at Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery offers a solution with post-bariatric surgery. This is a procedure that is used to help patients firm and tighten the areas where fat loss occurred so they can show off their new body with confidence!
Hanging, sagging skin is not only a cosmetic concern, but it can make it difficult to perform certain activities and keep the area clean. Some patients experience rashes and irritation in the folds of the extra skin which can lead to infection. By removing excess skin, fat, and any loose tissues in the problem areas, patients can obtain a lift to tighten these targeted areas effectively. The procedure, sometimes referred to as a “body lift,” is the perfect complement to one’s recent weight loss.
What are some areas and treatments used in one’s post-bariatric surgery?
The providers at Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery offer a selection of services, including:
- Body lift
- Thigh lift
- Buttocks lift
- Panniculectomy (apron removal in middle torso/stomach)
- Arm lift
One or more of these procedures can be done at once. Most patients find that it is easy to schedule several surgeries during the same day to consolidate the recovery period and reduce the costs associated with separate procedures. This makes it easier for patients who need to take significant time off of work to heal from their plastic surgery procedures. Patients can expect to take several days off of normal activities while they heal from their procedures. This also helps reduce the risk of complications and infection that may occur from improper healing.
