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.”

Thomas' success story

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. I was out of bed that day. My wife and kids were my motivation on getting this surgery. They are my whole life. I’m happy I’m going to be around for them.

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.
