Post Weight Loss (Bariatric) Surgeries
Following weight reduction surgery or the loss of a significant amount of weight, the skin and tissues often lack elasticity and begin to sag in the face and neck, upper arms, breasts, abdomen and buttocks. With bariatric surgery we can improve the shape and tone of the body by removing excess sagging fat and skin resulting in a more normal appearance with smoother contours. There are numerous procedures, including facelifts, breast lifts, tummy tucks, thigh lifts and brachioplasty, that can be performed for body contouring. Your doctor will discuss with you the best options to achieve the look you want.
