After successfully shedding the excessive pounds, your body may still not have your desired appearance. Stretched out, deflated, and loose skin is often left behind. Fortunately, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Anthony Miller can remove and trim the excess skin, re-shaping the underlying tissue, and even removing stubborn pockets of fat.
Why You May Need Post-Bariatric Body Contouring
After losing a significant amount of weight, you skin retains little to no elasticity. The lack of elasticity means the skin will hang there, causing you both aesthetic and physical discomfort. While there is a cosmetic benefit to the procedure, it can also help improve your overall health. Removing the excess skin can prevent the rashes, chafing, and irritation from occurring.
Post-Bariatric body contouring can address most problem areas on your body that include:
- Upper arms
During your initial consultation with Dr. Miller, he will help you decide if you need to combine multiple procedures into one surgical procedure.
What Can Post-Bariatric Body Contouring Treat
Post-Bariatric body contouring procedures target sagging and droopy skin all over your body. Some of the common areas we treat at Orange County Cosmetic Surgery in California include,
- Drooping, elongated breasts
- Excess abdominal fat and/or skin
- A large, hanging “apron” of abdominal skin
- Sagging, heavy thighs
- Bra rolls and back fat
- Saggy upper arms
- A droopy, deflated buttocks
You will want to schedule one to three weeks off from work to recover after the procedure. Your recovery time typically depends on the number and type of treatments. After six weeks, you can return to your normal activities. Dr. Miller will provide a precise recovery timeline based on your treatment plan.
