Post-Bariatric Body Contouring Surgery
Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss
With an ever-increasing number of people battling obesity, surgical weight loss methods have increased in popularity. Bariatric surgery procedures, such as Lap-Band and gastric bypass, can be extremely effective in inducing massive, rapid weight loss. However, the melting pounds often leave behind folds of excess skin as the body is unable to adapt to the rapid weight changes. In younger patients, some of the excess skin might shrink back to a more acceptable shape due to the better overall tissue elasticity. The skin of mature patients, however, is often unable to readjust to the new body contours. For these individuals, post-bariatric body contouring might provide a solution.
Post-Bariatric Plastic Surgery Procedures
As one of the most experienced post-bariatric body contouring surgeons in New York City, Dr. Joshua Greenwald offers several highly effective procedures. He is regarded as an accomplished body lift, thigh lift and arm lift expert. In addition, Dr. Greenwald specializes in tummy tuck surgery — a procedure that can help remove excess skin and fatty tissue deposits from the abdominal area while repairing the underlying stomach muscles. In fact, Dr. Greenwald has earned a reputation as one of the foremost tummy tuck surgeons. In addition to the full tummy tuck, he performs mini tummy tuck for patients who require less extensive reshaping of the abdominal area.
Your Post-Bariatric Body Contouring Plan
As a seasoned post-bariatric plastic surgery specialist, Dr. Joshua Greenwald recognizes that individualized treatment plans lead to the best possible aesthetic results. This is why he conducts extensive pre-surgical consultations with each patient. Dr. Greenwald takes the time to learn about the patient’s aesthetic and health concerns and aspirations, and he incorporates this information into treatment plans that are geared toward achieving the best possible appearance in the safest manner possible. While some treatment plans might consist of lower body lift followed by thigh lift and arm lift several months later, other individuals might be able to achieve their aesthetic goals through tummy tuck in conjunction with liposuction. Female patients might also combine these procedures with a breast augmentation and/or breast lift to achieve a slim-yet-feminine overall appearance.
