Surgery After Massive Weight Loss
Whether you have lost a significant amount of weight due to bariatric surgery or rigorous diet and exercise, it’s not uncommon to retain excess skin or isolated pockets of fat on a variety of body areas. Plastic surgeon Andrew Cohen, MD understands the hard work and effort you have accomplished in order to lead a healthier lifestyle, and can help you achieve the body you desire in the final stages of your transformation. Body contouring and post-bariatric surgery can eliminate fat deposits that have stubbornly resisted other weight loss attempts while also tightening loose, folding, or hanging skin. Afterward, our patients often feel more confident in their bodies and enjoy a more fit, toned, and youthful figure.
Your Consultation And Customized Procedure
During your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Cohen, he will listen carefully to your individual cosmetic goals. After you discuss your desires and expectations, Dr. Cohen will design a custom-tailored treatment plan to address your unique needs. Procedures that can be part of your post-weight loss treatment plan include tummy tuck, liposuction, arm lift, breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast reduction.
The recovery from your post-bariatric or body contouring surgeries will vary depending on which procedures you and Dr. Cohen decide might best achieve your cosmetic goals. Any major surgical procedure will typically entail 2-3 weeks of downtime, while procedures such as breast augmentation or breast lift usually require less downtime. Dr. Cohen will provide detailed recovery instructions appropriate for your treatment plan, and help ensure that you take the necessary time to rest and heal before resuming your normal daily routine.
