Post Bariatric Surgery

The Benefits of Post-Bariatric Body Contouring 

If you’ve undergone bariatric surgery, then you’re familiar with hard work and determination. You’ve already invested a lot of time and energy toward achieving your goals for health and weight. Well done! 

If your bariatric surgery left you with excess sagging skin, however, it’s okay to feel like your transformed body isn’t everything you hoped — yet. 

Did you know that you can’t simply exercise or diet that loose skin away, and it’s not healthy to try? The only way to address it is with plastic surgery. Post-bariatric body contouring has several benefits, including helping your skin better fit your body’s new shape — and it may be the next big step on your journey to a healthier, more confident you. 

Claim the Reward for Your Work 

It’s time to fully reap the rewards. You want to feel like you fit into your skin, and your skin fits you. And since you’ve done the difficult work — both physically and mentally — to lose weight and take care of yourself, you want your body to reflect that externally. 

Start planning now to achieve the rewards for all your labor. 

Move Past the Plateau 

It’s common to eventually reach a plateau on your overall journey to better health, which can be understandably discouraging after rigorous dieting, exercising, or bariatric surgery. Please know that if you’re feeling underwhelmed with your results or defeated, it’s natural and okay — but you don’t have to stay there! 

Body contouring may be the next step if you’re concerned about: 

  • The stomach 
  • Back and bra rolls 
  • Sagging or droopy breasts 
  • Stretched or inelastic skin (hanging off the arms, belly, sides, or thighs) Thin, weakened tissue 
  • Loss of volume 
  • Other effects caused by gravity
