Post Weight Loss or Post Bariatric Surgery
If you have recently undergone bariatric weight loss surgery, or have recently lost a large amount of weight without surgical treatment, you have completed a major step in fighting morbid obesity and living a healthier life with a slimmer physique. You’ve worked very hard to lose significant amounts of weight, and now may be the time for the next stage – addressing the aesthetic effects of weight loss. Extra skin folds and fat pockets brought on by significant weight loss are common after-effects that patients experience following bariatric surgery. These effects can be addressed with a variety of plastic surgery and body contouring procedures available from the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group. At our Post-Bariatric Surgery Center, a “Center of Excellence” within our practice, we can provide you with safe, effective treatment designed to eliminate excess fat and skin folds left over from significant weight loss. Many of our plastic surgeons are some of the most experienced in the area, and have been educated and trained at respected medical institutions and Universities such as Harvard, Duke University Medical Center, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Our LIPSG plastic surgeons can help you achieve your goals of having a fit, contoured physique to go with your new, slender appearance.
Please contact LIPSG to schedule a consultation for post-weight loss surgery. At your initial consultation, our plastic surgeon can address your questions and concerns, and discuss all aspects of procedures you are considering. With some procedures, we can also offer you a digital view of what the aesthetic outcome may be. Vectra 3-D imaging technology is able to show you a picture of the potential results from aesthetic enhancement procedures before you even set foot inside an operating room. You will also meet with a patient care coordinator who is an expert in post-weight loss surgery procedures and can help guide you throughout the treatment process. Our team here at LIPSG will be happy to speak with you about insurance questions and financing options for these procedures.
About Post-Weight Loss/ Post-Bariatric Surgery
Individuals who have lost large amounts of weight through traditional diet and exercise, and those who undergo bariatric weight loss surgery procedures such as gastric bypass and adjustable gastric banding, often experience drooping, excess skin folds and pockets of fat in many areas of the body. This can not only diminish a patient’s self-confidence, but can also cause skin infections and problems with hygiene. Post-bariatric surgery and after-weight loss surgery involve procedures designed to eliminate these areas of excess fat and loose skin for a more contoured appearance. While adapting a more healthy diet and a steady exercise regimen are standard parts of the post-bariatric surgery process, cosmetic enhancement procedures can go a long way in helping you attain a tighter, fit-looking physique.
Plastic surgeons at Long Island Plastic Surgical Group will meet with you in an initial consultation and go over all aspects of post-bariatric surgery procedures with you. Your surgeon will work with you to develop an ideal plan based on your aesthetic enhancement priorities. We can also answer your questions regarding insurance coverage and financing options available for procedures you are considering. Please contact LIPSG to schedule a consultation. Our expert post-weight loss patient coordinator will assist you with your needs throughout the treatment process.
