What is After Weight Loss Surgery?

Bariatric surgery and gastric bypass surgery are surging in popularity. With massive weight loss in a short time, skin often does not shrink well. Body contouring plastic surgery can help deal with this extra skin and give such individuals a new image after losing weight.

Body contouring after massive weight loss typically involves multiple procedures. These procedures can include:

  • Arm lift: Removes excess skin on the upper arms for less friction
  • Back: Excess skin can be removed from both the upper and lower back
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift or reduction: Reduces the likelihood of rashes under the folds of the breasts
  • Butt Lift: Elevates the buttocks and decreases sagging
  • Facelift
  • Forehead lift
  • Male breast reduction
  • Thigh Lift: Removes excess skin on the thighs
  • Tummy Tuck or Liposuction: Removes even more skin, and tightens the abdominal muscles, works for women after pregnancy

As each patient will have a unique set of needs, patients seeking body contouring after massive weight loss will have a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Bootstaylor. During your consultation, options, likely results, risks, and recovery will be thoroughly discussed.

What to Expect on the Day of After Weight Loss Surgery

Dr. Bootstaylor performs surgical procedures at Emory University Hospital Midtown and Northside Hospital. Once you arrive, we will ensure you are confident and comfortable with the treatment, and proceed to prep you for surgery; this will include the administration of anesthesia so you have a more comfortable experience.

During the After Weight Loss Surgery, Dr. Lissa will make an incision to tighten and remove excess skin in the target areas. Most likely, multiple incisions will be required to treat various areas. Dr. Lissa will discuss with you where to place incisions strategically so most types of clothing can hide them. The procedure can last 45 minutes to several hours, depending on what best course of action is required for the specific region of your body.

After Weight Loss Surgery Recovery

Your recovery will depend entirely on the nature of your selected surgeries. As body contouring incorporates multiple procedures, recovery is likely to progress over a longer period of time.
