How to Get Rid of Loose Skin After Bariatric Surgery
After major weight loss, individuals are often left with sagging, loose skin that serves as a painful reminder of times past. This loose skin may make you feel trapped, as though you cannot celebrate your weight loss as fully as you would like to. A body lift can eliminate this excess skin and give you a more defined and attractive body shape after bariatric surgery.
The Body Lift
Many bariatric surgeons recommend that you dutifully focus on strength training and muscle building during your rapid weight-loss period because it will help improve muscle tone and may also help to improve skin tone. However, in most cases, the skin simply will not contract to your new body shape. A body lift is a plastic surgery procedure that removes, tones, and shapes loose skin after you have undergone major weight loss. Dr. Palladino’s body lift procedure offers a solution for those who are left with loose and sagging skin on their abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs. This post-bariatric reconstruction procedure can give you the tight and toned appearance you desire so that you can more fully embrace your new figure.
Reshaping Your Entire Body
Body lift surgery focuses on the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs, but other procedures can correct loose skin in other areas. Dr. Palladino offers multiple post-bariatric body contouring procedures that can target the back, upper arms, and breasts in addition to these areas. When you meet with Dr. Palladino for your consultation, he will devise a custom treatment plan for you that may include a body lift as well as other body contouring procedures, such as an arm lift, breast lift, and more. After your procedure(s), your skin will hug your figure more tightly, causing you to look leaner and more toned. These procedures can all help you feel better and more confident about your appearance.
Post-bariatric body contouring with a body lift and/or other procedures can draw more attention to your weight-loss results and give you the smoother and tighter silhouette you desire.
