Post Weight Loss Surgery

What is Post Weight Loss Surgery?

After major weight loss and/or bariatric surgery for weight loss, it is common to have excess, sagging skin. Patients who undergo bariatric surgery usually have skin that is so severely stretched that it may have lost skin elasticity and thus, the ability to tighten and tone. Common areas of concern include the hips, buttocks, and thighs as well as the breasts, arms, abdomen, and flanks. So what are the post weight loss surgery options?

In most cases, the only solution to this problem is to remove the excess skin through excisional surgery, along with liposuction and laser skin tightening. Dr. Lorenc may recommend a lower body lift, breast lift, neck lift, arm lift, thigh lift, laser liposuction, or SkinTyte laser.

Body Contouring Effect

A study by Dr. Modaressi et al of the University of Geneva, Switzerland, reports that body contouring results to a  long-term weight control in patients after gastric bypass surgery.
