Post Weight Loss Procedures San Ramon, CA
Patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, either on their own or through a bariatric procedure, can be left with excess skin and muscle. Excess skin can make it harder to wear the clothes you like to wear and can also limit your activities by rubbing and pulling. Removing excess skin and fatty tissue and tightening the muscles if need can produce a dramatic result especially in the abdominal area. Loss of volume in the breasts can be corrected with a breast lift with or without implants. In some patients with excess skin on the breasts, the skin can be used to naturally augment the breasts without the use of implants. Medial thigh lifts, liposuction, buttock lifts and arm lifts are all common procedures after gastric bypass surgery. Some surgical procedures can be combined as the restrictions and recovery time is similar.
