Body Contouring Post-Bariatric Surgery

Complete Weight-Loss Transformation 

You’ve lost the weight, and now you want your body to look the way you feel! New York Bariatric Group understands that for many, bariatric surgery is just the beginning of a patient's journey.  That’s why NYBG provides patients with services to make a complete weight-loss transformation.
Mary lost 120 pounds after bariatric surgery and decided she wanted to contour her new figure, “After my sleeve gastrectomy, I did a lot of research…for what the solution was to the excess skin. It was limiting my mobility in my workouts and in my daily routine. After a ton of research, Dr. Kevin Small at New York Bariatric Group remained in the back of my mind. I thought to myself, “This is what he specializes in. Why am I not taking the opportunity to stay at the practice where there can be constant communication between doctors?"

Relief From Excess Skin

Mary’s not the only patient to experience excess skin after significant weight loss. Skin stretched prior to losing weight may never be reabsorbed by the body.  The loose skin may cause other problems, such as chafing and rashes, and limits the types of clothing that can be worn. 
Plastic surgery facilitates greater comfort. Patients rejoice now that their skin fits the frame of their bodies. Every patient has individual needs based upon the amount of weight lost, the elasticity of the skin, and the areas that need to have excess skin removed. 
At New York Bariatric Group, we provide bariatric surgery patients with a range of plastic surgery procedures to restore a trimmer, more attractive body contour. The procedures that may be involved to eliminate the excess skin and tissue include:
Body Lift to shape and tone underlying tissue 
Liposuction to address specific areas of stubborn fat 
Tummy Tuck to recover trim waists
Breast Augmentation to improve definition
Mary has a new lease on life since her plastic surgery at NYBG: “I am definitely more confident. Now it's so much more enjoyable to be able to wear the things that I see online or see other people wearing. I can walk in and pick it up off of a rack and mentally it's life changing.”

I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man.

Everybody treated me like a king. The day of surgery, I was excited. The hospital couldn’t be any nicer. I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man. My recovery was awesome.

Nicole's success story

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.

Samantha's success story

I feel like a completely different person.

I had the gastric sleeve procedure. The driving factor behind me getting this procedure was my health. I didn't feel good physically or mentally. I had joint pains, even standing was difficult sometimes. Emotionally, this surgery completely turned my life around. I have so much more confidence. So much more happiness. I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger. I feel able to accomplish more.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.

Brittany's success story

I am totally comfortable in my own skin.

I think I always grew up identifying myself as less than other people because I was fat. I decided to tackle that and just live my life. I had a sleeve gastrectomy. It changed how I view myself. How I communicate with people. I'm able to be much more of myself and live the life I always thought I should have been living. I am totally comfortable in my own skin. You have the tools you need to succeed here.
