major weight loss surgery(bariatric body contouring)

overview

Losing a lot of weight can be a life-changing accomplishment, but it can also leave loose skin and pockets of fat. Major weight loss surgery – or bariatric body contouring – can help you look as great as you feel after you reach your weight goal. This type of surgery removes excess skin and fat after a person sheds a dramatic amount of 
weight – usually 100 pounds or more. It can smooth and tone the face, chin, neck, arms, breasts, waist, back, buttocks, thighs and other parts.

services & treatment

Before you have bariatric body contouring, you’ll need to be at your goal weight and be able to maintain it. If you lose more weight, new pockets of sagging skin and fat can develop. If you regain it, stretch marks and scarring will likely develop. Reaching and maintaining your goal weight can help avoid this.

Your surgeon will tell you when you can safely begin body-contouring surgery. Body contouring often involves many steps and multiple surgeries. It can take months and sometimes years to complete. But like your weight-loss journey, it can yield successful, long-term results.
