Although losing a significant amount of weight after bariatric surgery is a positive and healthy change, the excess, sagging skin left behind can prevent individuals from fully appreciating their new bodies. At the Center for Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Jeffrey DeMercurio offer post-bariatric body contouring as a way to safely remove excess skin and tighten up troublesome areas of the body. Through a combination of individualized procedures, including tummy tuck, face lift, and arm lift, our surgeons can help patients achieve the bodies they’ve always dreamed of. If substantial weight loss has left you with loose, sagging skin, contact our plastic surgery practice to learn more about what body contouring can do for you.
Patients who have experienced significant weight loss have unique needs and goals when it comes to cosmetic procedures. Dr. DeMercurio are experienced in post-bariatric body contouring and are sensitive to the needs of these patients. After an in-depth consultation, our surgeons will develop a customized treatment plan that can accomplish the patient’s aesthetic goals. In most cases, this includes a combination of plastic surgeries. Among the treatments that may be administered as part of a post-bariatric regimen are:
A face lift can drastically improve the facial features, removing unwanted skin, reducing wrinkles, and providing a youthful appearance.
This popular cosmetic surgery targets the abdomen, removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles to reveal a trim stomach and waist.
A thigh lift is performed to firm up the skin and muscle of the thigh, revealing smooth, shapely legs.
The arms are often a problem area even for individuals who maintain a healthy weight. This procedure removes sagging skin and gently contours the curves of the arm.
With a buttock lift, post-bariatric patients can lift and firm their butt, achieving curves that weren’t previously possible.
This unique procedure removes sagging skin and fat on the back, increasing patient comfort and giving patients a more slender physique.
Sometimes called a pubic lift, this delicate procedure reduces and tightens the skin around the mons pubis area.
Post-bariatric body contouring procedures provide the finishing touches to the complete transformation that weight loss patients have undergone. Each of these cosmetic treatments targets a specific area, drastically improving the contours of the body. Because these procedures are highly individualized, Dr.DeMercurio are able to satisfy the diverse needs of each patient. The physical benefits of body contouring can translate into mental benefits as well. Patients who undergo these procedures often experience a positive change in their self-image. Free from the extra weight and sagging skin, patients are able to feel confident in their appearance. Finally, post-bariatric cosmetic procedures increase patient comfort. Not only are patients able to wear more form-fitting clothes, but they are free from the irritation that loose, excess skin can often cause.
