Post Bariatric Body Sculpting
Even with the benefit of modern bariatric surgical procedures, weight loss remains a long-term project, especially for those afflicted by morbid obesity. Once the bulk of the fat has been eliminated, excess skin frequently remains: an aesthetically unpleasant reminder of what once was. Opting for plastic surgery after major weight loss can help bring the patient’s journey toward health and fitness to a satisfactory conclusion. At Ageless Impressions – Plastic Surgery Institute, Dr. Mark E. Richards offers his wide-ranging expertise in plastic surgery to those from around the world facing life after massive weight loss. With his help, they can rid themselves of the last vestiges of obesity and get on with the next exciting phase of their lives.
Comprehensive Plastic Surgery Options
A plan of plastic surgery after weight loss typically involves several procedures that are performed over the course of several visits. Many post-bariatric patients secure the services of Ageless Impressions Plastic Surgery Institute because of the acclaim and success of Dr. Richards in carrying out all of these surgeries. A circumferential body lift is often chosen as an initial procedure that addresses the abdomen, lower and middle back, outer thighs, buttocks, and groin and mons pubis areas simultaneously! Neck lift, tummy tuck, arm lift, inner thigh lift, and breast lift are also plastic surgery procedures commonly used after weight loss. Each of these treatments serves to remove excess skin and tighten that which remains. This step is often unavoidable in the recovery from obesity; because extremely large fat deposits can stretch the skin to its limits – it loses its elasticity and cannot tighten to the new, slimmer form unaided.
Customized Treatment Planning
Some patients seeking restorative plastic surgery after weight loss choose to undergo additional procedures, such as liposuction, cheek lift, chin liposuction, and breast augmentation, in order to fine-tune their final appearance. Dr. Richards can advise his clients as to which of them might offer the greatest benefits. Prospective patients are encouraged to explore our website to learn more about each individual procedure. This great variety of procedures can take significant time and require long recovery periods, but when judiciously employed, the powers of modern cosmetic surgery can transform an individual who was once morbidly obese into a healthy, self-confident person.
